3110Re: October Issue of Hammock CAmping News
- Oct 2, 2003Ed, just read with interest your article on "How To Waterproof
Silnylon Fabrics". You talked about two silicone aerosol treatments
on both sides of an 8' X 5' piece of 1.9 oz/yd^2 ripstop nylon to
help ensure water-proofness. From talking to you previously and
having read your book, I believe you are referring to your technique
for "winterizing" the fabric used on the hammock body. Could this
technique be used on 1.1 oz/yd^2 ripstop nylon to make a "silnylon"
tarp... say for someone who found that material in the WalMart $1 Bin?
