  14. This will depend on several factors i.e. atmospheric conditions, how liberally the product is applied, how porous the fabric is. Therefore, as a general guide at least 2 hours, but can be as long as 24 hours. It is important to let each coat dry completely as the product is water based, and any moisture left in the fabric would dilute the next product application.
  15. As an approximate guide, 1 litre of Boat Canvas Reviver is sufficient to cover about 5sq metres, this will depend upon the porosity of the substrate it is being applied to.
