FP 2072 Multi-purpose Tenting Canvas Impregnant

FP 2072 is a water-based polymer bound impregnant used in the treatment of industrial and military tenting canvas. It imparts a variety of useful qualities to a range of textiles. A summary of features and application instructions can be found below.

Please note that FP2072 is not a flame retardant. If you require flame retardancy please consider FP2109 or another of our flame retardant impregnants.


  • Increased physical strength of textiles
  • Improved durability
  • Increased dimensional stability
  • Improved water resistance
  • Reduced permeability

Physical Properties

  • Total Solids Content: 48% to 52%
  • Viscosity: 1800 to 2200 CPS
  • pH: 8.5 to 10

Application Storage

FP 2072 should be mixed with water to approximately 10% weight by weight and applied to the textile by impregnation. Application methods are similar to other water-based impregnants:

  • Stir continuously after dilution to avoid sedimentation
  • Impregnate the substrate twice for maximum water permeability
  • To achieve the best results, dry substrate thoroughly and cross link the polymer binder by heating the substrate to 150°C for three minutes.
  • FP2072 can be stored for up to 6 months in sealed containers at temperatures between 5°C and 30°C
  • Do not allow the product to freeze
  • Do not expose to direct sunlight
