Our Water Based product is used for used fabrics. Prior to the application of the Water Based product, an extraction is done to ensure that the fabric is as clean as possible before protecting the fibers. Water Based is applied right after the extraction, wet-in-wet. This approach has a curing time of approximately 8 hours and a drying time of 24 hours (depending on the ventilation of the area). The protected area may be used after 8 hours but may still be moist. This product does not have any smell during or after application.
Our Solvent Based product is used for new and clean fabrics, and no extraction is needed prior to the application of the product. Solvent Based is applied after vaccuming the fabric and has a 1 hour curing time. After the Solvent Based product has been applied to the fabric, there will be an alcohol smell for a couple hours before it fades away.
Our 16oz Aerosol Can contains the Solvent Based product and has the same effect as the SB and WB products. This Aerosol Can can be used by anyone without the use of pumps and is therefore good for small and quick projects such as individual pillow covers, very small carpets, and other small pieces of fabric. As with the WB and SB products, make sure the fabric is clean before applying the protection. Since this Aerosol Can contains the SB product, there will be an alcohol smell post-application that will fade away.
