WHY THE WAXED CANVAS IS MORE DURABLE THAN CANVAS?

The waxed canvas,as it’s name implies,is that add the wax on the canvas.

But why the canvas with wax is more durable than without?

That is because the canvas fiber will be oxidation by weather with the passage of time,and the canvas fiber in wax which is as a protective layer.

As we all known,no matter bee wax,paraffin wax,American soft wax or palm wax is not stable material with oxygen chemical reaction,also,the wax is not soluble in water ,so the equivalent of the canvas fiber being protected.


Therefore, there is a waxed canvas water resistant,moisture-proof,durable characteristics.


In early sixteenth Century, the Scotland mariners will apply lubricating oil, fish oil on canvas, so that the ship would go faster. Because the canvas is non absorbent, and smooth, less resistance. Later, the sailors cut out the old canvas to make a coat, or cloak,so that they were not wet by the storm when they worked on the deck.

By nineteenth Century, the wax was extracted from the fossil oil,and was dissolved into cloth,it wouldn’t not make the fabric yellowing, stiffness,but perfectly waterresistent and windproof.

In the early 20 century, men who love nature obsessed with waterproof canvas and used it for tents, hunting equipment, tool kit, holster,ect.


Until now, a lot of clothing, accessories are still using waxed canvas which is not only waterresistant, windproof, but also with a sense of historical.
