Can I Treat My Tent with MiraZyme?
MiraZyme does not utilize any hazardous or abrasive ingredients.
As you know, many tents are treated with a polyurethane (PU) coating on the underside of the tent fly and on the tent floor to provide waterproofing. This coating is not permanent and it is common for PU coatings to break down and delaminate. When this happens the fly or floor tend to get sticky, may have a foul odour or you may actually see the coating peeling away. From my experience with our customers, this typically begins to happen after about 10 years but can happen much sooner or later.
There is nothing in the MiraZyme formula that would cause the polyurethane coating typically applied to tent flies or tent floors to degrade. However, when using MiraZyme, it is required that you soak the item and completely saturate it with water. From my experience, when you soak a tent that has a deteriorating PU coating, the coating tends to get really sticky and gummy. The soaking tends to speed up the delamination process. That said, I have had customers write back to say that after soaking their tent in MiraZyme, the PU coating became sticky. Had they soaked the tent in water without MiraZyme, they would have experienced the same effect.That said, MiraZyme specifically will not cause the PU coating to break down, but soaking the tent in water can.
