What Is PVC Tarpaulin?

Introduction of PVC Tarpaulin

PVC tarpaulin is made of high-strength polyester canvas, coated with PVC paste resin, plasticizer (synthetic plant ester), anti-mildew agent, anti-aging agent, anti-static agent and other chemical additives, and molded at high temperature. Waterproof PVC tarpaulin has the properties of being waterproof, anti-mildew, cold-resistant, anti-aging, anti-static and so on. Its tensile strength, tear elongation and tear strength are much better than those of traditional tarpaulin. It has a wide range of uses, strong intensity, diverse colors, special treatment on the surface for anti-slip purposes, and is the mainstream product of modern tarpaulin market due to its special width, which can be hot-spliced, eliminating the worry of needle holes leaking water.

Features of PVC Tarpaulin

  • Long service life and good tensile strength;

  • Waterproof PVC tarp does not seep water, and does not leak water;

  • It can withstand low temperature, and the cold-resistant temperature is -20℃;

  • It has certain anti-mildew effect.

Uses of PVC Tarpaulin

  • Can be used as the cargo tarpaulin of trucks, trains and ships;

  • Can be used as the covering of open warehouses, yards of stations, wharves, seaports, airports and so on;

  • Can be used as temporary grain warehouses, outdoor covering of various crops and household goods;

  • Can be used as materials for temporary sheds and temporary warehouses in various construction sites and power construction sites;

  • Can be processed into camping tents and various machine equipment covers.

PVC tarpaulin in China has excellent physical and chemical properties such as high strength, good waterproof performance, good self-cleaning performance, corrosion resistance, flame retardancy, long service life, improved surface properties of traditional coating materials. It has excellent anti-pollution ability, maintains long-term cleanliness and excellent weather resistance, prolongs service life, and enhances chemical corrosion resistance. It has anti-ultraviolet performance, flame retardancy, excellent tensile, tear and peeling resistance, good wear resistance, can be used repeatedly, and saves costs.

Chemical Raw Materials Contained in PVC Tarpaulin

Tarpaulin is a material used for waterproofing, moisture-proofing and frost prevention, produced by industrial processing technology methods. It is made of fiber materials and organic chemical filling materials through the production and manufacturing process.

The standard raw material composition of tarpaulin is a polyester fabric hand-woven into a blank, and properly matched with other small amounts of chemical raw materials for production and processing.

The key component of waterproof PVC tarp is polyethylene. PVC tarpaulin production and processing increases many auxiliary materials such as plasticizers and anti-aging agents to improve its performance during the production and manufacturing process. Its surface also contains many kinds of additives such as viscous epoxy resin, possessing good weather resistance and reliability.

Precautions for Using PVC Tarpaulin

During the use of PVC tarpaulin, dragging it on the ground should be avoided, and colliding, tearing or lacerating it with sharp metal or tools should also be avoided. If the product is damaged during use, clean the damaged area first, wipe it with alcohol, apply universal adhesive to the fabric and the damaged area, and paste it firmly three minutes later.
