1978 saw the birth of the first test tube baby, Space Invaders infiltrating arcades and Nick Brown successfully fulfilling his first Nikwax order. It's difficult to believe that 30 years have passed since Nick concocted a non-softening waterproof wax - but what a brilliant 30 years they have been! Hot on the heels of Nick's wax he created the Nikwax Water-Based Range, a new and unique way to waterproof outdoor clothing without damaging the environment. Nikwax has now grown to deliver product solutions for a multitude of uses by a multitude of users. From ropes to tents to boots - almost anything that needs regular care to maintain its water repellency - Nikwax delivers a suitable and effective product. And our 30th year sees the launch of Nikwax's Travel Solutions range; handy portable tubes of Nikwax's leading products and the SkitoStop™ range. Here's to another 30 years of market- leading cleaning, waterproofing and protecting solutions!
