    Waterproofing Canvas - Perentie

    Hi All,

    I have searched some old threads and found Joseph Lyddy Dry Seal to be a popular choice. It seems that this product is no longer available. Can anyone suggest an alternative?

    Thanks

    I suggest talking to a horse supply shop. They should have canvas waterproofing stuff for the horse rugs similar to the Joseph Liddy product. In the old days there were canvas tents but there aren't to many of these left anymore. and for good reason.

    I posted in Military 2 days ago that Dry Seal is now available again directly from Waproo.

    Free stuff!

    There's about 3.5 litres of Aqua Proof and from memory about 5-600ml of Mould Rid that is looking for a new home.

    Seeing as I no longer have a Perentie and therefore no tarp that needs treatment with either, it seems a shame to piff them to the council detox your home thing.

    DM me if anyone wants. Pickup inner west Melbourne or can come meet you somewhere.

    Already getting some mold

    Heya - my canvas is getting some black spots - mold - on the outside and easily cleanable white spots on the inside. Is it still going to work to seal it or is there a step I should take first to neutralise the mold?
