The urethane coating on the floor and bathtub sides of my 15 year old Kelty was starting to bubble and peel. After a call to Kelty, they recommended McNett Tent Sure Floor Coating to repair the failing urethane. It went on almost like water and it only took about 20 minutes to coat the entire 4-person-compact-dome inside floor and bathtub sides, plus two door panels: 68 sq ft- floor alone.. It was remarkably easy to apply: I used a wider brush as a previous reviewer had suggested. The preparation of the tent was another story.

The urethane had started to "flake" off leaving jagged little flag edges that were difficult to remove. I scrubbed the coating with a dry, stiff bristle deck cleaning brush and followed that up with a green Scotch Brite pad. Alcohol did not work well and rendered the existing coating into a goo on the sample spot I cleaned with alcohol.

After the dry brush, there were still little flags of urethane on the edges where the old coating came off, but I charged ahead. For the most part, the tiny flags were "glued" down with freah coating on top and bottom of the flags, and I don't expect a problem.

This product left a very thin urethane coating on top of the bare nylon material and integrated well with the existing coating that was full of checks and "cracks". After the 24 hour dry, I sprinkled after-shower body powder onto the floor and blew it around with a weed bower to prevent any tacky spots from sticking after I fold the tent up. I will report how it holds up after 10 day October and 10 day November 2011 trips.

On a secondary note, I bought a Eureka backpacking tent in 2009 and while it was new, I set it up and sealed all seams with McNett Seam Sealer. That took all of 20 minutes and was a remarkable product as well.

I use this product to water-proof my 12x9 feet tent floor.
One bottle was enough for mine.

As the product name indicates, this sealant is for a flat surface.
It can be easily applied using a supplied sponge brush, and replacement brush can be found in local Michaels' or similar paper/craft stores (~$1 ea). Drying takes 1-2 hr but instruction says a good 24 hr for complete drying.
Once applied/dried, there is no visible film/residue. This may not be ideal as a seam sealer due to this.

However, treated tent floor is noticeable different even at the point of folding my tent.
Now floor sheet feels a little stiffer and becomes harder to fold without pushing trapped air out.
Once air is out, no problem with folding treated floor.
I think even air is less penetrable after sealing.
Now, I am waiting for next camping season to test out how effective this treatment is :

This coating works definitely.
Most camping trips were dry but one in October Yosemite was worst of all.
My tent survived it.

I purchased this product to waterproof my twenty year old tent. The product went on easily and dried well overnight. I had occasion to test it as it rained on a recent camping trip and the inside of the tent remained dry. Good Stuff!

First things first. Curing times are based on temperature and humidity. Proper adhesion after curing is dependent on how clean the surface was prior to sealing. YOU DO NOT NEED TO DRENCH! I was able to cover 75 square feet with just one bottle. If you don't let it cure properly, the sealant WILL STICK WHEN PACKED AWAY and it'll peel off and get very slimy.

1 bottle was enough to cover my 2 person tent AND my foot print(total of 73 square feet, still had 1.5" left in the bottle). Make sure you wet sponge the surface well, making sure to wring out and rinse your sponge with clean water FREQUENTLY. I Set up a heater and let it dry for 24hrs. Once dry, shake and squeeze a little(YOU DO NOT NEED TO DRENCH THE FABRIC)onto the fabric. I duct taped the corners of my foot print and one side of the shortest side(did not have to do this for my tent obviously). Starting from the short duct taped side, I poured a line of sealer width wise and stroked the brush length wise(long ways in relation to the foot print) and continued the line of sealer every 6 inches until I made it to the bottom. The first line of sealant you squeeze out should be a bit more because as with any brush, you will have to load it with sealant for it to spread properly. If the brush starts to feel heavy, press it against the fabric and squeeze the sealant out. The fabric should look wet, have good lighting so you can see if you missed a spot. This isn't rocket science, you're not trying to build a 3mm sheet of laminate. If you see milky spots or lines, you've used too much. Turn on heater, let sit for a couple days and you're good to go! Bored so here you go:

Duct taped end. Stroke up and down, line of sealer left to right every 6 inches as you work your way down.

This product was the only recommendation by Sierra Designs for sealing their tents. One bottle covered the fly and floor of my Lightening tent. After waiting about 36 hours and with rain on its way, I wadded (loosely) the tent and brought in in. A couple of days later I tried to pack the tent and the treated surfaces had stuck together and had to be pulled apart. It appeared that some of the treatment had separated from the fly. I retreated the fly and left it in the sun for three days and then hosed the dust off. I brought the fly in and left it draped for about a week and now it seems cured, The fly shed water well when I used the hose and I expect I will like the result. This product is water based which makes for easy application and cleanup. Four stars only for the cure time.
