(Waxed Canvas) Vintage Military Fabric Reproduction
This is the closest you
will get to authentic military issue CANVAK of yesteryear. restoring
a vintage military vehicle or other classic military equipment?...
This is the stuff you need. No restoration or reproduction of pre
1980's U.S. Military equipment would be complete without this
authentic looking (and smelling) fabric. It may be Vintage, but it
still works; water actually beads on the durable waxy surface,
retains its waterproof and rot-proof capability for years.
For those too young to remember, CANVAK is a fabric protectant &
waterproofing solution applied mainly to cotton canvas, used
primarily by the military back in the day before vinyl and other
synthetic materials. CANVAK has a waxy feel and an unmistakable
pungent odor that will probably remind you of that smell of walking
into an old time Army Surplus store, or those old military surplus
tents from Boy scout camp.
