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.Read more ›
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.
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.

Great stuff if used for it's intended use. To "refresh" urethane coated nylon such as tent floors, rain fly's and tarps. Don't try and use it on silny or other materials.Published 14 months ago by Scott J.
