    Can you waterproof paracord so that the water just beads off?

    Yeah but when the wax dries and you tie a knot with the paracord the wax will break and crack exposing the paracord.

    I never heard of people waterproofing paracord before.

    Try some of the waterproofing products for shoes.

    If you decide to use wax; only wax after the project is complete.

    Sounds like Mr paracord is on to something there I would try his method and see what happens you may have to try this several times for these chemicals to take but u would do it after project us completed seeing how you have to burn and melt ends of paracord and these chemicals are most likely flammable
