PVC Tarpaulin Production Process

Hits: 63

PVC tarpaulin has superior performance of waterproof, aging resistance, anti-static, anti-tear, etc. It is a very popular protective cloth and is widely used in many fields such as daily life and industrial production.

It is produced by vertical machine, vertical machine mechanical production, the cloth is pulled straight into the raw material box and pulled out, the gum-like material glued on thatched cloth is high purity PVC material, then both sides are straightened all the time through the machine with knife scraping, after scraping with knife through the dryer drying, cutting edge, dividing circle, packaging. There are two kinds of drying machine, one is with electric firing, one is with boiler. Vertical machine has high requirements for raw materials, must be a certain purity of raw materials to distance. Often the PVC canvas produced by the vertical machine is slightly more expensive and the purity of the tarpaulin products is high.

Characteristics of PVC Tarpaulin

Appearance: good color and luster, oily and reflective; one side is flat and smooth, and the other side has a little granular object, which means the resin component is added properly and the temperature is suitable; no pinhole, high resin density, good anti-aging and long service life. 

Tensile strength: according to the process is different, canvas in the material ratio are excellence, so that the ability of damage to the cloth blank is small, the better the tensile strength; yarn warp and weft density is high, the stronger the tensile strength. 

Waterproof performance: 100% waterproof performance, good gum, the canvas will not have pinholes, quality production materials. The addition of materials, how much resin composition, high or low density, are to determine the performance of the PVC tarpaulin good or bad. 

Feel: It is soft to the touch, although it feels like the thickness is average, but the thickness has actually met the requirements, just because of the high resin composition and good processing craftsmanship, so it feels soft to the touch and does not feel rough. 

Environmental performance: PVC tarpaulin is polyester filament as the base cloth, the appearance of PVC double-sided coating, selected high-quality environmental protection resin, smooth surface, bright colors, with waterproof, fire, corrosion, mildew, cold, high temperature, UV resistance, anti-aging and other properties.

The Difference Between Canvas and PVC

Hits: 193

We’re often asked what is better between PVC and canvas. If you are having trouble deciding which material is the best option for your upcoming project, Tarpo is here to help! Of course, there are positive and negative characteristics of both of these materials, making your final decision a little tricky. Let’s compare some of the important features of Canvas and PVC to help you make the best decision.


Canvas can either be cotton or a polyester-cotton blend (polycotton) which means it has synthetic mixed with organic fibres. Polycotton generally tends to be cheaper and is less likely to shrink.

It is typically used for the following;

  • Vehicle covers i.e. fitted covers.
  • Tents,
  • Furniture i.e. (the metal folding chairs), and
  • Parasols.


PVC is a polyester-based fabric that can either be coated or laminated.

This material is typically used for the following;

  • Tarpaulins,
  • Vehicle covers (Lorry Covers),
  • Furniture,
  • Machine Cover and
  • Canopies. 

There’s also the matter of the elements- how do these two hold up?

The Sun

Both Canvas and PVC are susceptible to UV radiation and that’s why they disintegrate. The more UV stabilization, the longer they are likely to last, but then, of course, the price goes up.

Polyurethane (PU) coated canvas is wrapped with plastic. It can either be plain or ripstop weave. Its lightweight body makes it inherently more breathable than PVC and allows it to adjust to body temperature more quickly.


Canvas is water resistant but not waterproof. This means that quality canvas is able to resist the penetration of water to some degree under the conditions in which it is likely to be used.

Canvas shrinks because of the cotton while PVC doesn’t shrink because of the synthetic fibres.


Both PVC and Canvas are not naturally fire-resistant; however, they can be made fire retardant.

This means that they are able to slow down or stop the speed of fire. This is made possible because they are treated with a substance that lessens flammability known as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). This does not make the material fireproof.

Fire retardant properties need to be added to the chemical finish making the price almost double the one without them. Both canvas and PVC don’t regularly come with Fire retardant. In Europe, the US and Australia Fire retardant is a requirement by law for certain uses.

Finally, here’s the difference when it comes down to cost and durability:


Canvas is more expensive than PVC because cotton fabrics are naturally more expensive than plastic.
