PVC COATING OVER A BASE CLOTH OF NYLON OR POLYESTER. ROT-PROOF AND WATERPROOF, LESS SUSCEPTIBLE TO DAMAGE FROM ULTRA-VIOLET RAYS, I.E. SUNLIGHT, WEATHER RESISTANCE LIGHTWEIGHT THEY IDEAL FOR COVERING TIMBER STOCK AND BUILDING MATERIALS, THOUGH THEY ARE PRIMARILY USED FOR COVERING GENERAL PURPOSE GOODS IN ROAD TRANSPORT. PVC TARPAULINS
Flexible - poly tarp is basically a sheet of coated fabric.
Water resistant or waterproof.
Reinforced with eyelets as attachmnent points for rope
U V protection
Arctic flexibility - most poly tarps function well at freezing
POLY TARPS ARE USUALLY THE LEAST EXPENSIVE TYPE OF TARPS AND MOST WIDELY USED.
LDPE OR HDPE FILMS ARE USED FOR BOTH SIDE LAMINATION OF PE FABRICS TO PRODUCE POLY TARP. THE THICKNESS OF THE LAMINATION FILM VARIES FROM 40 MICRONS TO 1500 MICRONS WIDTH FROM 1 M TO 13.5 M. LAMINATION FILM FOR POLY TARP
Dimensionally stable under varied climatic/temperature conditions.
Tolerate temperatures variations ranging from -70°F to 165°F.
Offers excellent chemical resistance to Acids, Alkalies, Fungi/Bacteria & Grease; do not corrode metals, is odourless and tasteless.
CONTAINS NO PLASTICISER AND DO NOT BECOME BRITTLE WITH TIME AND USE. RESISTANT TO ULTRA-VIOLET RAYS LIGHT WEIGHT EASY OF HANDLING & TRANSPORTATION. WATER PROOF, DUE TO WHICH IT IS IMPERMEABLE TO LIQUIDS AND IS UNAFFECTED BY HUMIDITY.
