    $40 per gallon for something that is 70% to 94% water, and covers 150 square feet!

    I think I read it right...

    Question

    Okay... new use for our recipe. Can it be used to rejuvenate a Marmot Precip jacket that has lost its waterproofing prematurely? Just wondering, thinking what else I can slap this stuff on.

    IX has a different problem. You get 100% un-diulted Insultex at a reasonable price per yard, but the minimum order quantity is huge.

    Is that a breathable jacket? Because if you use this stuff, it won't be anymore!

    Not to my knowledge.

    I'm just finishing assembling a CatCut 136X116 tarp out of WW ripstop. I'm thinking of using the pitch and apply method with white gas as thinner. Planning on using a 4:1 mixer with Black 100% silicone. Ripstop is grey so I'm hoping to transfer alittle of the color and result in a darker tarp... Will do small text piece tonight, say 18X18 and see how it turns out...

    On another note I did built a diamond tarp and used the spray silicone tent coating from WW and was pleased with the results. Certainly beads up water well but not sure about long term exposure to rain...

    Hey Rain Man

    There was a post on Whiteblaze about the Percip jacket recently.

    http://www.whiteblaze.net/forum/showthread.php?t=65594

    From the looks of it you might contact the mfg and get a new one if they believe it to be a manufacture fault..

    I like your idea about using black silicone to darken the tarp. The color may not come out even but that could be a plus.

    I don't like the idea of using white gas. Far too dangerous, IMHO. Mineral spirits work fine and aren't nearly as volatile.
