Top 5 Waterproof Tarpaulin

Are you looking for tarpaulins? You're in the right place!

A tarpaulin or tarp is a large sheet of strong, flexible, water-resistant or waterproof material, often cloth such as canvas or polyester coated with polyurethane, or made of plastics such as polyethylene. Tarpaulins often have reinforced grommets at the corners and along the sides to form attachment points for rope, allowing them to be tied down or suspended. (From Wikipedia)

It's not an easy job to order the right tarpaulin for your project as there are too many factors to consider, such as tarp material, size, shape, thickness, grommet spacing, abrasion- resistance, oil-, chemical- and water-resistance, flame protection, sun protection, and durability. This article will introduce 5 tarp materials for you.

Tarp Material

  • Polyethylene

    Most of the tarps on the market are made of polyethylene. Polyethylene tarps are designed for temporary use tarps as they can not last long. But, they are affordable and naturally waterproof.

  • Polypropylene

    Polypropylene tarps have nice mechanical properties, good toughness and impact resistance, and remain stable in strong acids and alkalis and organic solvents.

  • Vinyl

    With the ability to withstand a high level of abuse, vinyl tarps can last longer than polyethylene tarps. Yet, they are always heavier than polyethylene tarps.

  • Canvas

    Canvas is a rugged and nonslip and long-lasting material. Canvas tarps are not waterproof in nature, but they can be treated to be water-resistant.

  • PVC Coated Fiberglass Fabrics

    PVC-coated fiberglass fabric is a new material for tarpaulins. As the name indicated, this fabric is made of fiberglass and coated with PVC. In general, fiberglass fabrics are thinner and lighter than polyethylene fabrics. In addition, fiberglass fabrics have high melting point and deformation resistance. The PVC coating acts as the protective outer tissue to make the tarp water-,chemicals-, oil- and UV-resistant.

    Actually, tarps can be treated to be perfect for shade, privacy enclosures, screens, and are widely used in industries such as agriculture, trucking, and construction.

    I strongly recommend PVC-coated fiberglass tarp from IFIRSTORE. IFIRSTORE offers a variety of color options depending on the nature of your project and tailor your tarps to any shape and size. If you have any problems don't hesitate to call IFIRSTORE.
