Hydrothread Ceramic Fabric Protectant & Stain Repellent (473ml, 16oz)
HydroThread is a super hydrophobic ceramic protective textile coating and stain guard engineered for extreme durability and hydrophobicity on fabric and cloth surfaces that helps repel water and stains without compromising the look, feel, or comfort of the fabric!
Use This To:
- Add ceramic protection to interior and exterior fabrics
- Repel water and other liquids
- Help prevent permanent stains
- Protect without changing the look and feel of fabric
- Resist accidental spills and stains
- Help keep your fabric from fading & discoloration
- Help repel harmful UV solar rays
- Give your fabric extreme hydrophobic water beading
Total Surface Protection!
HydroThread brings long-lasting ceramic HydroTechnology to fabric convertible tops, interior textiles, carpets, and fabrics. It forms a super-hydrophobic SiO2 barrier that causes liquids to bead up and hover on the surface, without penetrating the underlying fibers. Once treated, fabrics have an extremely low surface tension, causing the beads to roll right off the surface and making the surface super easy to clean, helping prevent stains from accidental spills.
HydroThread protects and prolongs without changing the look or feel of the surface it is treating. Shielded NO-STIFF technology ensures that fabrics treated with HydroThread will not harden, or become rough after application. Unlike traditional solvent or oil based protectants, HydroThread is water-based and odorless for maximum versatility on interior and exterior cloth and fabric seats, chairs, carpets, fabric awnings, convertible tops, and more!
Resists, Protects, and Prevents
The unique SiO2 formulation is small enough to bond to individual fibers, delivering superior hydrophobic characteristics, while resisting abrasion and UV fading for up to 12 months. The thin viscosity formula is extremely easy to apply and permeates fast to transform the substrate into a super hydrophobic surface that is durable, flexible, and long lasting against environmental elements, fading, and spills.
- Clean fabric surface thoroughly. Ensure surface is completely dry.
- Cover non-fabric areas around surfaces to be treated to prevent overspray.
- Shake bottle well, then mist a light coat onto surface.
- Hold bottle at least 12” from surface and lightly mist fabric while sweeping the bottle back and forth to ensure even coverage.
- For best results, work into fibers with a soft bristled brush.
- Allow to dry for 20 minutes, or until the surface is dry.
- Apply a second coat for maximum protection if desired.
- For best results, allow at least 24 hours to dry. Depending on the climate and pile height, the hydrophobic effects will continue to improve even more after 24 hours of being applied. Always test fabric/fiber for color fastness in an inconspicuous area. For more humid climates, you may need to wait longer in-between coats to allow surface to completely dry.
- 😃 To maintain: recoat your surface after major spills, heavy duty use, or just because since it's so easy and fun!
WORK THE PRODUCT IN WITH A BRUSH TO GET DEEP WITHIN THE FIBERS!
Fabric is composed of woven textile fibers and even seemingly smooth surfaces are actually highly irregular and uneven surfaces. Use a soft Horse Hair Brush to work the product into the fibers for maximum protection!
Ceramic HydroTechnology for your Fabric!
You're tired of spills ruining your fabrics forever, but you still have a question or two about HydroThread. Read on to get all your questions answered and finally say goodbye to stains!
How long after cleaning do I have to wait to apply HydroThread?
Wet surfaces don’t make for good bonding. We recommend making sure the surface is dry to the touch before applying HydroThread to ensure the strongest bond possible.
Will it make the surface hard?
HydroThread does not stiffen nor harden nor change the feel of the surfaces to which it is applied, but will imbue them with total surface protection.
I already have a fabric coating on. Can I layer this?
Yes, you can apply HydroThread on top of your existing coating for even more protection!
Can I use it around the house?
Yes! HydroThread works great around the house! Use it on your couch, chair, throw pillows, rugs, carpets, and more!
Can I use it on shoes?
Yes! HydroThread does a great job at protecting your shoes and keeping your feet dry.
Do I have to clean the surface first?
Yes, in order for the product to properly bond to the surface, always clean the surface first with a premium fabric cleaner like Lightning Fast or Fabric Clean.
If I have light/white color fabric, can I still use it?
Yes, HydroThread works great on all color surfaces! As always, we do recommend testing a small inconspicuous spot before committing to an entire area.
How long does it take for HydroThread to cure?
HydroThread permeates fabric fast and starts to cure immediately. Depending on the climate, the hydrophobic effects will continue to improve even more after 24 hours of being applied.
Can I layer this product to make it last longer?
Yes, HydroThread can be layered. We have found in testing that 2 rounds are more than enough for any surface we have tested. We do have taxi drivers that have gone as far as 4 coats for extra heavy duty use.
How long do I wait in-between applying multiple coats of HydroThread?
We recommend waiting until the fabric is dry before applying your second coat.
Do I need to dilute this?
HydroThread comes ready to use and does not need to be diluted.
Do I need to use a brush to apply?
We have engineered a product that enables you to apply it in two ways: with a brush or without a brush. After cleaning the surface to be treated, simply spray on for amazing results. For even more protection, use a soft brush like the Horse Hair Brush to brush the product into the fibers.
Will it remove stains?
HydroThread is a fabric protectant that does an amazing job at helping prevent stains. If you already have pre-existing stains, remove them first with Lightning Fast or Fabric Clean before applying HydroThread.
Should I apply indoors or outdoors?
HydroThread is so versatile that you can apply indoors or outdoors!
What does it smell like?
Unlike other strong, harsh smelling chemicals, HydroThread has no scent when dry.
How long does it last?
HydroThread can last up to one year. The precise duration of your application will depend on a number of factors, including: the climate where you live, how often you drive your car, how well you applied it, where you store it, and more. HydroThread is so easy to apply, you can apply it as often as you like!
What happens if I get overspray?
We do recommend covering areas where you want to avoid overspray. If you happen to get some overspray, you can simply use an interior cleaner like Total Interior, InnerClean, or Nonsense to wipe it off. If you happen to get some overspray on your paint or windows, you can use a quick detail spray, waterless wash, or glass cleaner to quickly remove it.
How often do I need to apply?
HydroThread is so easy to apply, you can apply it as often as you want! Every situation is different and depends on your car and your specific habits. If your car is a family wagon that constantly has kids spilling drinks and other liquids, a routine of easy application every few months might be a good idea. For lesser driven vehicles that are more pampered, a routine of every 9 months would be a great idea.
