Nikwax Waterproofing Proofing Wax TX Direct
Nikwax was first produced as a commercial product in the UK in 1977 by Nick Brown. The wax was then poured into tins which he silk-screened by hand. Nick sold his products to the outdoor trade, driving a his van and later, he bought a Railcard to introduce his product into Europe. From there he moved to a workshop in Clerkenwell in London and before he knew it, Nick was selling ‘the product’ to eight countries. 'The product' - a non-softening waterproofing wax for leather boots was so effective that it set the standard for a new breed of aftercare products under the Nikwax brand.
Enjoying any leisure or sports activity in wet weather relies on the capability of your gear and also the wearer to respond in today's changing weather conditions. That's why Nikwax focus on testing their formulations in the laboratory and also in extreme and remote environments. By advancing the Nikwax knowledge base of fabric capabilities and developing solutions to make the best use of new technology, the entire wet weather experience is no longer a threat.
