  • Bee Kind Waterproofing Beeswax Bar 
A blend of natural waxes for maximum waterproofing of fabric, leather, boots, bags, garments, stitching, horse covers and canvas. Plus many more uses. 
By rubbing the wax into the fabric and warming it, the surface provides a long lasting, hard-wearing, durable and water-repellent surface.

  • Waterproofing a 4.9ft synthetic horse cover - Used the muslin cloth to hold bar and then used the corners and edges of bar to get into the hard to reach seams and stitching - Saves the stitching breaking down and rotting after heavy rain, dryness and sun. We then used the waterproofing bar for the rest of cover. Right hand side of photo shows where waterproofing bar was applied and then water applied.
Completely rainproof and will last for up to a year before re-applying.

Video demonstration of application on fabric, boots and leather will be coming shortly.

Product Description

Bee Kind Beeswax Waterproofing Wax Bar - Heavy Duty - 100grams

*SPECIAL - BUY TWO BARS AND GET ONE FREE - Free bar will be sent in the package. NB. The additional free waterproofing bar does not come in box

*NOTE: Please do not use these bars if you are allergic to bees. The heating process may attract a few bees, as bees can detect the smell of beeswax from miles away.
Please apply the wax correctly to the fabric when heating/curing- more info below. We have found an iron on a low setting to be the best application, but please use with caution. Can also be used in 'hot' direct sun to melt and cure.

This product is NOT a flammable liquid, so is safe to use and to get on hands. Plus an excellent choice for those that suffer from severe asthma or skin disorders. There are no toxic fumes/chemical particles that can be inhaled or ingested.
We devised the idea of a bar as if you attempted to melt down pure natural waxes, by the time it hit your paint brush it would have hardened, before even getting to the cover. We do not condone melting and then thinning with turpentine as turpentine is a highly flammable liquid with acute oral toxicity (as specified in its data sheet), it is also highly combustible- PLEASE do not use turpentine on your animal covers. If you wish to thin our bars down, please use an oil. 

Application

1. First, ensure that the product you are applying this to is clean and dry.
Use a cloth to hold the bar and rub back and forth 
over the surface, which creates the friction needed to loosen the wax.
2. Ensure the wax has been SPREAD EVENLY over the surface. 
3. HEAT the wax into the fabric using either:
• A heat gun
• A hair dryer on a HIGH heat setting (for smaller garments).
• An iron set to a LOW SYNTHETIC setting.
4. If applying to a large surface area such as a horse cover, for the best 
results apply a second coating of the wax bar straight after you have 
heated thoroughly the first application.
5. If the look of the wax is white and it is sticky to touch it has not been cured into the fabric. So it won’t be waterproof. So re-apply heat using the above methods.
6. Leave overnight to dry and cure.

You can view our videos on applying the wax by searching for Bee Kind NZ in Youtube.

NOTE: To wash the wax out of your fabric, set the wash temperature to 60 degrees heat and wash twice. 
For larger clothes or in-between covers, you could place garments into tied up large black plastic rubbish bags. Then place into the dryer for 10min increments. 

It’s recommended that you re-apply wax every year or second year. Waxing fabric, will darken the color of a fabric and give it a light shine. As a general rule of thumb, plan on using more wax to treat un-waxed or oiled fabrics. Waxed fabrics are already saturated with wax, so will not absorb as much as an untreated fabric. Our Bee Kind wax bars are excellent for one-sided waxing because it creates a seal on the top layer of the fabric. Great for quickly re-proofing factory waxed and oiled garments like oilskins. Our wax is melted down when applied, thus permeating deeper into the fabric and yielding a more factory-waxed appearance. This is ideal for multi-layered coats and jackets, or for re-proofing factory-oiled fabrics.

Photo of a horse in paddock above (Taken in the late evening) with waterproofing bar that has been correctly applied to (only top half of cover) for the impending winter high rains. The cover is an old synthetic fabric - second-hand cover. Used only one bar. Used iron to melt in the bar and left to dry overnight. Has been on the cover for 6 weeks now. You can still see where the wax is applied. Feels and looks alike to an oilskin. After a heavy rainfall, the cover appearance will be reversed in colour. The top line will be dry and the bottom of cover where no waterproofing bar has been applied will still be saturated. So the top will be lighter than the bottom. 

Our Bee Kind Beeswax Waterproofing Bar was specially formulated to:
1. Provide a non-flammable and non-toxic agent
2. Provide a non-toxic agent to use that doesn't flare up asthma or skin disorders. Eliminates inhaling chemical vapors.
3. Provides an even distribution and coverage over garments without having to melt first.

Our beeswax heavy duty water repellent and protectant wax is made from the highest quality beeswax and blend of waxes. A great option for heavy duty waterproofing projects like outdoor equipment, float and tent awnings, tent seams, jackets or pants, bike wear, back packs, hats, synthetic and canvas horse covers, horse saddle blankets, trekking boots, jeans, canvas shoes, fishing & hunting gear, rucksacks, tents and hiking boots. Any surface that requires a heavy duty waterproofing surface. Easy to use. Can be used in hard to reach seams and stitching. For horse covers, does both synthetic and canvas. Wax needs to be heated and cured into fabric for high-quality results. You can also just use one bar and waterproof the top seams and all the stitching (to protect stitching) where the water really hits in a heavy rain downpour if you want more breathability in heavier horse covers.

Note for Horse Covers: Not ideal for thin cotton white cover sheets - It will attract soil on the sheet when the horse rolls, due to the nature of the beeswax in the wax bar as it's a waxy type substance. Unless wax is melted in correctly and completely dried before use.

Un-doctored photo taken with a phone, with an example of an old synthetic horse cover that has been waterproofed on the right-hand side. If the wax hasn't been applied correctly with heat & curing, it will appear like the left-hand side of the photo. It will not have that wet look, oilskin appearance. The product won't work nearly as well. Just started to rain while taking the photo and the right-hand side is completely watertight. The left side is drenched right through already after 30mins of consistent rain.

 

Testimonials:

 “It’s easy to water proof my horse's covers. It works so great thank you so much. As I have asthma I can water proof my covers now. Thank you heaps, I love it!” Wendy Denton

" I love this product, two bars covered my 12X9 ft canvas tent. A much better product than any spray I have used on the market to date.
1 bar was used for all of the seams inside and out, the other covered all of the outside going over the ground sheet seams twice.. 
After I finished, I put the tent in my green house for 2 days and the wax fully melted into canvas fabric. The tent has now been stood up for 9 days and has been involved in some awful NZ downpours but not a single drop has come through.. bearing in mind the reason I wanted to water proof was because the tent leaked at the top from one of the seam.. I had to do some patch work on the tent to cover a little hole on the side, I am not very good at sewing but I used heaps of the wax to cover the stiches and all of the patch.. the rain streams off it!!" A***** Product and great delivery time!!

    Heard about this product from my local pony club and reviews in Face Book. Now I know why. Brilliant!! :) thanks, love it! Best product ever


  2. Best Stuff on market

    Posted by Sarah Greenwood on 20th Apr 2016

    Was highly recommend this by other riders. Have tried various sprays and waterproof reds. None have worked. Especially in synthetic covers. Was sceptical about this one until I tried it and it actually stopped my cover from getting wet inside. And we had lots of rain. Very happy! Finally can keep my horses dry this winter and not have my covers rot. Thanks you. Brilliant stuff!


  3. Fantastic Stuff

    Posted by Tina Portanger on 7th Feb 2016

    Used 2 of these bars on an old but good condition synthetic 5ft horse rug combo. Was so easy to apply, just like using big soft crayons & smells delish. We had a huge heavy thunder storm that night & that rug stayed very dry. Water beaded and ran off. I off to buy more for the rest of my covers!


  4. Awesome product
