Waxed Canvas Fabric | 12 oz per square yard | Flame Retardant | Olive Drab | 58″ Width
Waxed canvas fabric is treated with a patented chemical finish called Pyrosnuff™. Pyrosnuff fabric has a flame retardant property that meets CPAI-84 Fr standards (6 oz/ sq yd of wax added on to a 12 ounce fabric). Through this process, fabric becomes extremely water repellent and durable, and the finished weight is 18-20 ounces per square yard/ Only use this fabric to make industrial products like tarps, covers, and shelters. Use our other lines of waxed canvas for bags, totes, and luggage.
Pyrosnuff does give off a slight odor, but it’s not harmful. Use industrial sewing machines, sewing thread and needles for this fabric. To clean wax canvas, never launder it. Treat it like any leather product and spot clean only.
Finish this fabric in different widths, weights and colors depending on your need. To do this we have to run full dye lots. If you have a custom project that needs a lighter weight or heavier weight cotton duck, please feel free to call us regarding wholesale pricing and dye lots, or email our Customer Service team of technicians at [email protected]
