Use the red top. Don't use heavy coats, just 3 or 4 light coats with plenty of drying time in between.

Also, pick up some Shout wipes and put them in your gearbag. They're a lifesaver.

Jess, Scotchguard is used on rigs to help make them easier to clean. You do the above when you get it in and before any canopies are put into it.

I used red top on my rig, no adverse effects yet.
(Purple, white, navy and lots of tie dye)
As said here many light coats are better than one biggy.
One can should do you for a container.

I called Sun Path before I got my new Odyssey and asked them the same thing . . . here's what they said:

1) Red Cap Scoth Guard, Two Coats
2) Shake the can LOTS before AND during the application. Any large blots of liquid that come out because of lack of shaking will stain the rig.

I did exactly that, adding a third coat over the neon yellow embroidery. I let it dry overnight between coats.

I never heard of using the stuff on a container. I learned something today:$ Time to go home.....

Thanks all for the thread:)

It is best to apply it before canopies are in so that you can get to all areas of the flaps, but it should not matter in terms of it getting to the canopy as not that much should be applied.

I can say that even when applied very heavily, it did not hurt a non-zp canopy I used to own.

Call Mark K. at UPT for the scotch guard question, I do belive that your new vector comes pre-dunked in the stuff and that it takes a day or so for it to dry.

They are very throough over there...
