Great Waterproofer But Take Care Applying.

Easy and quick to apply, now water beads up on the tent and just rolls off. Enough in this can to do tens of tents!
by Franka (27 Aug 2019)
Bought it to waterproof gazebo canopy, applied it using a garden sprayer and it worked a treat, as demonstrated when it rained a few days later and the slabs underneath stayed perfectly dry. I was surprised to read previous reviews saying that the liquid was difficult to pour- until I tried to pour it, using a funnel, and ended up with a couple of waterproofed patio slabs from the spillage. There was enough in the tin to cover a 3m x 3m gazebo cover, three jackets and the remainder should be enough for the campervan awning.
Easy To Use. Just Paint.
by Davet (16 Aug 2019)
We have a swinging chair with a hood. I painted it with this proofer and it seems ok. Just paint it on , it dries quickly, and works. Doesn’t discolour the fabric.

Drys Quickly In The Sun
by B. C. Webb (04 Jul 2019)
Drys quickly in the sun, beware that in direct sun this dries very quickly in bright sun. Take care to rub in when still wet to get best performance. Not yet sure how water resistance will be, have to wait and see. At the moment I am happy to recommend

Used on my Mercedes roof, very good. (With paint brush application, one coat takes about 10 mins) very easy, next to no prep, the car will smell of solvent until the roof dries, if you are looking to use this with a convertible.

Waterproofs Canvas Well.
by Amazon Customer (23 Jan 2017)
Used it on our trailer tents canvas that kept leaking. Tried reviving the canvas by all the usual methods but it just wouldn't waterproof itself. I was reluctant to use this as once you treat canvas with fabsil there is no going back. After treating it it's fully waterproof and the water beads up. Be warned you will use a lot of the product, we used the whole can and only did the sleeping area of our trailer tent. It's also very smelly with a chemical odour so you may want to do the treatment before you use the tent.
Also clean the tent fabric first with soap suds or you will seal in the dirt with the fabsil.

Keep Dry Out The Sun
by Mad Rat (13 May 2016)
Excellent product. Being used on standard heavy-duty canvas tents to extend their life by protecting against UV and water ingress. I've tried to paint on and end up wasting more than I use. So am now using a 5ltr pump sprayer to apply it. The run-off being caught in a tray; then strained to remove any debris and reused. Coverage is enough for 3x 12foot square marquee tops and sides and numerous small items; boots, shoes, coats & hiking gear. An invaluable product. I have also used this on my modern 4-man & 8-man tents. It works better if it is left on to dry naturally rather than worked in with a brush.

Excellent stuff. Used it on boots to start but my wife had a problem with her soft-top so I applied this. Worked perfectly. I did give it a good scrub to get rid of the mold but after that the sealer went on perfectly. Did not affect ther colour in any way and might of in fact enhanced it.

Caravan Awning Waterproofing Liquid - Great Stuff
by Christiancaravanner (23 Sep 2014)
This stuff works! This is the third or fourth time I've used this product to renew waterproofing on my caravan awning and it does the job. However, I would recommend you are generous in calculating needs, as I have always found I use more than the coverage rate suggests. Application instructions as stated on the tin are: Apply to clean dry fabric with a new paintbrush or a coarse spray. To ensure a uniform finish treat all of the article and maintain a 'wet edge'. - Immediately after application rub treated fabric with a clean cloth and allow around six hours drying time. Rain and dew must not contact treated materials until the proofing has dried. Coverage is stated as ' 1 litre of Fabsil will cover up to 18 sq metres of nylon, 7.5 sq metres of light weight or 5 sq metres of medium weight canvas ' I've always applied this on a fine, reasonably sunny, day with a gentle breeze. I've applied it with a paint brush and that may explain why I've used more than the coverage rate suggests; maybe a spray gives a finer control of the coverage? The sun and breeze may also have affected coverage. On the other hand, there was never any need to go over it with a clean cloth - the brush spread the liquid evenly enough, and most of the roof had dried before I finished applying the liquid to other parts of the awning. The liquid is clear. When applying it to the red and grey coloured wall panels of the awning, it was easy to see the 'wet edge' between treated and untreated areas. The awning roof is a sandy-beige colour so it was much harder to see the 'wet edge' on that. I suggest you mentally sub-divide the area into grid squares or panels so you can keep track of where you have treated. I recommend applying first to the most vulnerable areas of the canvas such as where roof poles come into contact with fabric, just in case you are run short of liquid.

Did just what it sys on the tin & i would recommend it to anyone. My wife put it on with a sprayer & did a 9 man tent ( big Y shape) in about 30 mins no problem.
A Must Have For Most Households.
by Mrs. D. L. Simpson-phillips (30 Jul 2014)
Excellent product, i buy the large tin as it is more economical, i have a hand plunger in which i syphon the fabsil into clean previously used antibac spray bottles, this tin will easily cover a 8 man family tent, 4 man tent, with enough left over for fleece coats, shoes (material e.g vans, enties etc, trainers, suede boots, fabric fashion shoes etc), never had a problem with this product which i have used for over 14 years. Excellent to waterproof old waterproof wear,e.g trousers, jackets, roadside illuminous jackets, running and kayak wear,hats, gloves and back packs).
by Amazon Customer (17 Jul 2014)
used this before and would always recommend as is brilliant and definetly waterproofs just about anything
The Price Is Right - But Use A Sprayer!
by Jonathan (15 Jul 2014)
Just a top tip here - forget brushing it on, use a sprayer and you'll get a MUCH better coating, and your tin will last about twice as long.
by Peter L. (23 Apr 2014)
As discribed will use again if needed. Nice advert cheaper than our local boat yard. Tin is painted a very nice black.
by David Pursehouse (13 Sep 2013)
bought for dinghy cover. Easy to apply, and water just beads off the canvas. Rather expensive, but the best I have used.
by Daniel Thomas (26 Jul 2013)
I've used this product a number of times to waterproof a large canvas frame tent and also smaller items. It works really well, dries quickly and its smell dissipates rapidly.
Painted on to heavy canvas I find it lasts well for years, but it does require a lot of product as heavy canvas absorbs a huge amount of it. I've marked it down one star for this as I think the coverage rates given on the item are very optimistic. As a minimum on canvas buy double what you think you will need, use the excess product if you have any to waterproof outdoor clothing/furniture or to protect fabric car seats from staining like scotchguard.
Good Stuff For Convertibles

This product never fails to satisfy we use it frequently to reproof outdoor equipment it goes on beautifully and dries very quickly
by Sandysetter (21 Nov 2010)
A great product, easy to apply with a brush and it really works. I use it on horse rugs and outdoor jackets
by M. Bridge (31 Oct 2009)
Grangers Fabsil Waterproofer does exactly what it says it does. It is relatively simple to apply, so long as you make sure to apply it to a clean surface. If the surface is not clean the application by brush or roller just stirs the dirt about and makes it look awful. An added bonus if you are down in sunny Spain is that it has UV Protection. Follow the instructions on the tin and you will do a good job. I don't know yet how long one application will last but I anticipate a couple of years.
