How to Apply Duckswax

If the DucksWax is too cold (Hard) to use, it can easily be softened by warming on a radiator or a bowl of hot water.
 
Leather
Apply to DRY, CLEAN LEATHER, using the sponge supplied. REMOVE ANY EXCESS DucksWax from seams, ridges or joins in the leather with a shoe brush, PRIOR TO IT DRYING. For best results use a lint free buffing cloth afterwards as well. It is not necessary to avoid getting it onto any plastic parts (motorcycle boots, for instance) but avoid the Velcro fastenings. Reapply as & when necessary. The more often applied the greater the effectiveness. You will experience slight discolourations when using this product on Nubuck or lighty tanned leather.
 
Wax Cotton
Apply to dry, clean material, ensuring that it's applied lightly& evenly. For best results, heat the DucksWax slightly. This can be done on a radiator or a saucepan of boiling water. While applying, if it starts to harden or is too thick just re-melt slightly with a hair dryer. It's not necessary to avoid the zips, but take care not to get it onto the lining or Velcro. Buff off afterwards, with a lint free cloth. Jackets and equestrian turnout rugs may require 2 coats.
 
Nylon, Gore-Tex and Synthetic material.
DucksWax is not designed for these materials. However does prove to be effective on nylon BUT will retain the greasiness. Do NOT use on Suede or Gore-Tex.
ALWAYS TEST DUCKS WAX BEFORE APPLICATION 

DucksWax - Application Test Results

Nubuck
Tested on a few different colours. Overall effectiveness is very good indeed. The duckswax changes the look of the leather slightly. Darkening a little. But overall improving the appearance. On very light tan, colour it will darken significantly. Water repelling properties are also greatly improved. Water droplets appear & the water runs off.
 
Motorcycle leathers
Tested on Black, White, Red & Green leathers. The application had no adverse effect on any of the colours whatsoever. Overall effectiveness is very good indeed. The duckswax initially gives a shiny/greasy appearance. This reduces back within 10 minutes or so. There is no greasy feel, thereafter. Duckswax greatly assists in removing road dirt & fly squash. It also helps removal of dirt & fly squash subsequently. There are no adverse effects in terms of grip levels (on gloves or bottoms), after application, having allowed a little soaking in time. Water repelling properties are also greatly improved. Water droplets appear & the water runs off. Leather appears to be softer after application and reduces any squeakiness. Reapplication times will vary according to use.
 
Car seats & leather furniture
Both myself & a customer have used this product on car upholstery. Very positive results. Seats remain greasy for a few minutes, thereafter drying to a nice finish.
 
Tack/Saddles
Duckswax softens & feeds the leather. Feedback from customers has been positive. When applied to tack, improves the look.
 
Wood & Furniture
 
DucksWax works incredibly well as a furniture wax. Use on untreated soft and hardwood, to give a lasting finish. Non waxy and will really enhance the grain.
 
Suede
Due to the nap, DucksWax, is not appropriate for this.
 
Wax cotton
Tested on 3 jackets. The application brought the old wax material back to nearly as new condition. Water repelling properties are also greatly improved. Water droplets appear & the water runs off.
 
Nylon
Tested on a very old "waterproof" suit. The nylon retained the very greasy feel, this did not soak in. However, water repelling is also greatly improved. Water droplets appear & the water runs off.
 
Horse turnout rugs
There are 2 types, available on the market. Wax cotton & nylon. Effectiveness is the same as above.
 
PVC
This product is NOT suitable for PVC. It will remain greasy & will not soak in.
