The lush greenery of the UK is due entirely to the rain that falls. But we do not always appreciate rain, especially because of the randomness with which it falls.
I remember my grandmother’s ritual of always doing the laundry on a Monday and of the little rhyme she used to mutter :-
Rain, rain, go away, come again another day.
Whether we are walking in the hills, camping, or transporting materials on the back of a low-loader, we in the UK have to be constantly prepared for the rain. This means waterproof jackets, waterproof tents and waterproof tarpaulins.
Zirconium-wax emulsions made with zirconium acetate provide some of the highest quality laundry resistant wax finishes. The zirconium acts as a powerful anchor between the wax and the cotton base sheet.
