High quality Textil waterproofing with Nano-Care

waterproof textiles and fibers is a special challenge. The fabrics must not lose their technical properties despite a protective coating. In addition, the waterproofing must also tolerate normal handling of the fabrics and not dissolve through use. This presents major hurdles in the development of a waterproofing for textile and fiber fabrics. Nano-Care has succeeded in overcoming these hurdles and developing products that offer the right sealant for every type of fabric. Each of these products offers the same catalog of outstanding features

Textil waterproofing

for your convertible
The Nano-Care textile waterproofing is the first choice for protecting and maintaining high quality fabric roofs for convertibles. This fiber coating makes a fabric roof permanently tight, stain resistant and retains its color. The textile waterproofing is also very durable. Refreshing at the start of the season and before the winter break is quite sufficient. The convertible roof is thus permanently protected and retains its function and color throughout the season.

The Innovative Technology of Nano-Care for the waterproofing of Textiles

The textiles to be protected are first thoroughly cleaned. Any soiling that is not removed is sealed by the textile waterproofing. This makes cleaning afterwards unnecessarily difficult.

The Nano-Care textile waterproofing is applied with a sponge or with a sprayer. If possible, the waterproofing solution can also be washed in. After drying and the specified exposure time, the fabrics are sustainably protected against penetrating oil or water.

The nano coating of the fibers also creates a micro-rough surface that keeps water and dirt out. This also gives textiles a self-cleaning surface. To clean them, all you need to do is wipe them with a damp cloth or rinse them with running water, for example from a watering can.

However, please do not use steam or high-pressure cleaners. This would destroy the waterproofing layer and make it ineffective. Trust in the advantages that Nano-Care offers you with its products. You will get a sustainable, durable and health-safe protection for all kinds of fiber fabrics in your household.

Our services of textile and fiber materials


The Nano-Care impregnation solutions keep dew, rain and splashing water away from textile and fibrous fabrics. When moistened, the water immediately beads off the surface and does not penetrate the fibers. The capillary action of the fabric is stopped and the textiles always remain dry.

The Nano-Care textile waterproofing creates a micro-rough structure on the surface. Water droplets, mold spores and sharp-edged dust particles are thus kept at a distance from the sensitive fibers. The next time it rains, the water carries the dirt particles away, leaving nothing but a clean surface.

The sheathing of the fibers is permanently protected from contact with water by waterproofing solution from Nano-Care. This reliably prevents mold or rot from spreading in the fabric.

The Textil waterproofing from Nano-Care completely envelops the fabric. It not only protects the fibers and their colors from moisture and dirt. The nano coating also provides some protection against ultraviolet radiation. The fabrics fade less and retain their original colors longer. This prolongs their service life and makes them permanently attractive.

These questions are frequently Textil waterproofing asked.


The waterproofing is either washed in or applied. The wash-in method is particularly effective. If this is not possible, several layers of waterproofing agents must be applied, depending on the type of fiber.

The durability of waterproofing of textile and fiber materials depends on their load. Mechanically lightly loaded products such as pavilions, sunshades or fabric roofs of convertibles need at most two refreshings per year. Products exposed to high mechanical stress, such as sofas or armchairs, require more frequent refreshing of textile waterproofing.

The waterproofing agents of Nano-Care do not contain PFC, which is harmful to health and the environment. It has been successfully replaced by harmless silicon oxide – as finely ground sand. Nevertheless, we recommend wearing mouth and eye protection for processing. This will permanently eliminate any risk of an allergic reaction.

The protective film of Nano-Care sealant also has slight protective properties against UV radiation. The colors of convertible roofs, gazebos or sunshades do not fade as quickly due to the treatment with waterproofing of textile and fiber materials. This additionally prolongs the service life of the products.
