Otter Wax Heat Activated Fabric Dressing


7 reviews

Otter Wax Heat Activated Fabric Dressing comes in a large 1/2-pint tin and provides enough wax to tackle those bigger projects. This item is perfect to achieve a more matte or ‘factory-waxed’ appearance. 

The application process contains a few more steps than using wax bars, but the extra effort yields fantastic results. Applying hot wax penetrates deep into fabrics and dramatically reduces cure time.

  • place tin in 1.5" cool water
  • use heating element to simmer until melted
  • apply with a brush or lint-free cloth
  • use only as much wax as can be absorbed
  • rub into fabric with fingers for uniformity
  • allow 24~48 hours for wax to cure

Ideal for bags, packs, clothing and more

1/2 Pint | Made in Portland, Oregon

    Mixed feelings

    Probably 2.5 stars for this product, mixed feelings about it. Firstly, one tin was not enough to thoroughly cover a pair of canvas trousers, so price wise you’re looking at close to £50 for 2 tins. I had only experience of using Greenland wax previously and wasn’t impressed by it, so I was encouraged to read reviews of otter wax saying it was next level from Greenland wax. However, since using this otter wax I have gone back to Greenland wax and tried melting it and painting it on as opposed to their recommended ‘dry rub’ method, and this is a far better application of it, and goes on much more easily than the otter wax did. Plus it’s £8 a bar. The otter wax took several weeks to properly cure, and even after several weeks the trousers still felt both damp and cold, too unpleasant to be worn next to the skin. Will be worn with a baselayer only. I’m grateful to otter wax for making me think to melt Greenland wax, but I doubt I will be using their products again.

    Thanks for the feedback Rory. We've never experienced any curing issues and haven't heard of anything similar before now.

    Excellent wax

    Takes some time and work but we’ll worth the effort. Had only used Greenland wax previously but this is another level. Great service as always.

    Otter Wax Heat Activated Fabric Dressing

    I brought this product and used on canvas material it was easy to apply .Once finished and dried it left a nice effect on the material. I have mixed my own wax before and there is a difference which left the canvas material a bit firmer..The otter wax is great easy to apply but not cheap. I would buy again .
