Introduction of Thickness of Tarpaulin

Tarpaulin is a waterproof material that has high strength, good toughness, and flexibility. It is commonly used as canvas (oil painting cloth), polyester with polyurethane coating, or made into polyethylene plastic. Often reinforced grommets are found at the corners or edges for easy binding, hanging, or covering with ropes. It is a widely used material, especially for rain and cold protection, and is essential for outdoor activities.

Reason why PVC tarpaulins leak is due to poor quality of the material

Professional analysts explain that there are two key reasons for this situation when buying PVC tarpaulins in large quantities from the market:

  • Generally speaking, leaks in PVC tarpaulins are usually caused by loose seams, accidental hooks, or torn holes. If it is due to loose seams, adhesive glue can be used for remedy. Usually, the special glue can be applied to the seam.

  • However, if it is damaged by hooks, then it is slightly more troublesome. If the PVC tarpaulin is newly bought, then it can be fixed by hot air gun and adhesive glue bonding.

However, for old PVC tarp, hot air and adhesive glue are both ineffective. Only adhesive and sewing can be used. Be sure not to use hands and instead use scissors to press down for a while, so the holes that have been glued will be less likely to open again.

Thickness of Tarpaulin

Depending on the variety and category of waterproof tarpaulins, the thickness can range from 0.15mm to 1.2mm. The thickness of the tarpaulin is determined by the fineness of the yarn, the density of the base fabric, and the thickness of the coating material. For example, the thickness of PVC coated tarpaulin, PVC coated fabric, knife scraping cloth, and colorful tarpaulin is determined by the fineness of the base fabric yarn, the density of the base fabric, and the coating material. The thickness of PE tarpaulin and PVC transparent film depends on the weight of the raw material.

However, it cannot be said that thicker tarpaulins are better, nor that thinner ones are worse. Judging the quality of tarpaulin is determined by a variety of factors, such as the quality of the yarn, the density of the fabric, the quality of the coating raw materials, and the ratio of the coating raw materials. Currently, there are many manufacturers producing tarpaulins of different thicknesses nationwide, but the quality varies.
