Waterproofing or Re-Waterproofing Canvas
The popular Acrylic canvas, for example, is a tight-weave. It is breathable, which helps it resist mildew better, and it holds up better under damaging UV rays. It also has better resistance to stains But acrylic canvas needs a special chemical treatment to give it the needed water repellency, and the chemical treatment can lose effectiveness over time, particularly if the canvas is cleaned with detergents, or scrubbed vigorously. Acrylic canvas used on boats is likely to start losing its waterproof characteristics after a few years — the owner’s maintenance of the canvas and where the boat is kept and stored can make a big difference in how long the initial waterproofing lasts.
Acrylic and or Polyester canvas can be re-waterproofed, but it is important to use the right type of formula.
