Seamsealing. What? Why?
Ensuring the waterproof integrity of the seams on our tents is crucial for a comfortable and dry outdoor experience. While we understand the expectation for impeccable seams right from the factory, it's important to highlight that, in most cases, seam sealing is redundant for achieving waterproof seams on our silnylon tents.
The seams for our fabric, inherently provides a high level of waterproofnes. The seams are sewn using a special expandable thread and a uniquely cooled needle, minimizing pinholes caused by the needle and creating seams that are more or less waterproof by default.
Unlike PU-coated tents, where factory-applied seam tape is the norm, the nature of silicone in silnylon tents makes traditional seam tape useless as nothing sticks to silicone, except silicone. While we recommend seam sealing as an optional step for those who seek additional peace of mind, it's essential to clarify that, for most users, the seams already offer substantial waterproofing.
It's also worth noting that the silicone-to-silicone adhesion needed for seam sealing requires a manual application, typically taking about 24 hours to fully dry. While this process may be undertaken by end-users who prefer the extra layer of protection, it's essential to understand that the seams on your silnylon tent are designed to be highly water-resistant from the start.
We appreciate your commitment to quality outdoor gear, and we want to assure you that, with or without seam sealing, your silnylon tent is crafted to provide a reliable and waterproof shelter for your outdoor adventures.
