What is PVC tarpaulin?
PVC tarpaulin is usually based on high tensile and tearing strength polyester fabric with two layers coated with PVC paste resin and added with retardants, mildew inhibitors, anti-aging agents, antistatic agents, etc. It is a plastic-coated high tensile strength polyester fabric.
It consists of 3 layers of fabric (PVC layer) +high tensile and tearing strength polyester base fabric (PVC layer)
3 Popular Categories of PVC tarpaulin
(1) PVC Coated Tarpaulin
PVC coated tarpaulin is a waterproof material widely used in swimming pools, bioflockin fish tanks, truck covers, inflatable boats, tents, waterproof backpack bags, etc.
PVC coated tarpaulin is flexible, durable, waterproof, windproof, flame retardant, anticorrosion, dustproof, anti-aging, anti-freeze, uv resistance and other characteristics, the coating surface sun resistance, wind resistance, low temperature resistance. And you don’t have to worry about shrinking.
(2) PVC Knife Coated Tarpaulin
PVC knife coated tarpaulin is a waterproof material made of liquid PVC and polyester fabric. It is coated by knife to achieve a more stable bonding effect.
PVC knife coated tarpaulin is flexible, light, waterproof, anti-ultraviolet, flame retardant, size stability, self-cleaning, durable, high strength, strong ink absorption, anti-freezing, anti-aging and so on. Widely used in large surface, awning, goods shelter, tent, inflatable products, open cargo yard, etc.
(3) PVC Laminated Tarpaulin
PVC laminated tarpaulin is flexible, durable, waterproof, windproof, flame retardant, anti-corrosion, dustproof, anti-aging, anti-freezing, uv resistance and other characteristics. Laminated tarpaulin has excellent tear strength and temperature resistance of -20 °C to 70°C. Widely used in awnings, truck covers, tents, etc.
Popular Applications of PVC Tarpaulin
- PVC Coated Tarpaulin for Truck Cover
- Tent & Membrane Material
- PVC Strip Fence
- PVC Tarpaulin For Inflatable
- Medical Vinyl Tarps
- Striped Tarpaulin
- Pool Tarpaulin
- Super Clear PVC Film
- Embossing Tarps
- Pool PVC Tarpaulin
How long does PVC tarpaulin last?
Different types of applications correspond to different types of PVC tarpaulins. Different types of PVC tarpaulin have different service life.
When used for trucks heavy trucks, these heavy duty tarps can last 5-10 years of daily use.
When used as Super Clear PVC Film, these PVC films or transparent PVC films can be used outdoors for up to 3-5 years. Commonly used for PVC table cloth, transparent door, window curtain, clear tent, Stationary bags, furniture accessories, etc.
Is PVC tarpaulin good?
PVC Tarpaulin is an internationally popular tarpaulin, it has many advantages.
(1) Good waterproof performance. Because the manufacturing process is used in the immersion process, there is PVC slurry in the gap of the cloth, so the waterproof performance is good. Now truck, yard and other waterproof products on the tarpaulin are PVC tarpaulin.
(2) With excellent weather resistance, cold resistance, and mildew, antistatic
(3) With uv resistance, oxidation resistance, aging resistance, long service life
(3) Excellent tensile resistance, tear resistance and peel resistance. PVC tarpaulin breaking strength, tear elongation, tear strength is far better than traditional tarpaulin.
(4) With flame retardant, fire safety;
What is the difference between PVC tarpaulin and PE tarpaulin?
PE tarpaulin and PVC coated tarpaulin are different in raw materials, or processing technology. The following is a specific explanation.
PE tarpaulin raw materials
PE tarpaulin raw material is PE, also known as polyethylene, is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material. The material is non-toxic and tasteless, has good water absorption and electrical insulation, and is very resistant to low temperatures and can be used normally at -70 to -100 degrees Celsius.
Production technology of PE tarpaulin
PE tarpaulin is on both sides of PE woven cloth coated with PE film and polypropylene woven cloth. Production process: drawing – circular weaving – double – sided coating.
Characteristics of PE tarpaulin
Tarpaulin waterproof performance is poor, generally used for temporary stacking, rain and dust, not long-term use in the open environment. The advantage is light, clean and pollution-free.
PVC tarpaulin raw materials
low density polyethylene (a weaker, near solid polyethylene) or high density polyethylene (which is stronger and more flexible), and subsequently coated (laminated) with the other.
Production technology of PVC tarpaulin
PVC tarpaulin is based on high tensile and tearing strength polyester fabric, coated with PVC paste resin on both sides and added with additives such as growth agent, mildew inhibitor, anti-aging agent and antistatic agent. Adopt dip plastic process, a molding.
Characteristics of PVC tarpaulin
PVC tarps are flexible, durable, waterproof, windproof, flame retardant, anti-corrosion, dustproof, anti-aging, anti-freezing, uv resistance and other characteristics, the coating surface is sun resistant, wind resistant, low temperature resistant, and do not need to worry about shrinking.
The finished product can improve quality by reducing seams. Heat sealing eliminates the trouble of sewing pinholes.
PVC material has good rain resistance and durability, very suitable for long-term outdoor covering. It is widely used for breeding rainproof windproof canvas rolling curtain, coal yard rainproof, truck transportation, cargo ship cover, etc. Now truck, yard and other rain – proof products on the tarpaulin are PVC tarpaulin.
The aging resistance of PVC tarpaulin is much better than PP and PE tarpaulin. It is the most waterproof of all tarpaulins.
Unisign can produce products with different functions, colors and thicknesses according to users’ requirements.
