Tarpaulin or tarps are usually plastic sheets made up of different types of materials. They are used for multiple purposes such as to protect equipment machinery when kept outdoors, structures during construction, sports grounds, cars, motorcycles, and others from rain, sunlight, and changing weather conditions. Tarpaulin sheets also serves humanitarian use for temporary shelter during calamities like flood and earthquake, in refugee camps to provide comfort and safety, and even in hiking and camping sites. Some of the significant features of tarpaulin sheets include excellent strength, flexible, and resistant to water, acids, and other chemicals. These sheets are easy to transport, affordable, and absolutely comfortable.
Types of Material for Tarpaulin Sheets
Polyethylene: Tarpaulin sheets made from polyethylene materials are also known as polytarp. Polyethylene is not a traditional fabric but a laminate of sheet and woven material. Here, the center of is loosely woven with polyethylene plastic strips and bonded to the surface. The fabric-like material resists stretching and is resistant to water. Tarpaulin sheets can be constructed from high density polyethylene or low density polyethylene. When these sheets are treated with ultraviolet light, they have longer life span and can be exposed to any weather condition for years. Using non-UV treated polyethylene for tarpaulin sheets make them easily brittle and lose strength and resistance to water. Polyethylene tarpaulin sheets are commonly used in building enclosures, insulation, outdoor coverings, landfill covers, and waterproofing.
Canvas: This material is water resistant but not 100% waterproof. A little amount of water might not affect them but when water cannot drain away quickly from the canvas tarpaulin sheet, it starts to drip. However, they are breathable and strong which can help conceal or protect equipment machinery while eliminating condensation. Canvas tarpaulin sheets are heavy and act as an ideal barrier against wind. They are completely made from natural fibers and do not suffer any damage in high temperature.
Vinyl: Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tarpaulin sheets are stronger than the ones made from polyethylene and hence intended for heavy-duty use. They offer high strength and abrasion-resistance. Vinyl sheets are used in construction, agriculture, trucks, and other industrial applications. They are also resistant to oil, grease, acid, and mildew. Flame-resistant vinyl tarpaulin sheets are available which are used for floor coverings, welding curtains, paint booth curtains, and more.
Some other types of materials for tarpaulin sheets include jute, plastic, silnylon, polypropylene, polyester, mesh, etc.
