PVC tarpaulin fabric is UV resistant, highly tear-resistant, and durable. It can be used for 4-6 years even in bad weather. Widely used in commercial flatbed truck trailers, dock covers, shade awning fabric, equipment covers, and upholstery fabrics.
Many people don't know what material to choose for automotive PVC tarpaulin fabric. Now I will recommend a popular material suitable for automotive PVC tarpaulin fabric - PVC plastic coated fabric.
PVC is a polymeric non-crystalline material. It can be processed into other industrial products by adding various lubricants, processing agents, pigments, additives, and other substances. The PVC plastic coating we recommend here is one of them. PVC plastic-coated cloth is coated with PVC-containing glue on the canvas blank so that its surface is smoother and its waterproof performance reaches 100%. Since PVC plastic coated cloth is used as the production material of PVC tarpaulin fabric for automobiles, it has been well received by the industry and recognized by the majority of car owners. Since this material is so excellent, how should we choose it?
The choice of PVC plastic-coated cloth should first look at the appearance, the color is bright and consistent, which is the most important, and then scrape it with your hand to see if the plastic-coated glue can not fall off, it is not a good cloth, and the thickness of the glue should be moderate. If it is too thick, it will not be easy to handle, and if it is too thin, it will not last long. Then touch its softness by hand, generally speaking, the softer the better. If your PVC tarpaulin fabric has a special purpose, you should check the flame retardant degree and see how long the fire will be extinguished by itself. Of course, the shorter the time, the better. To judge the strength of PVC plastic-coated cloth, you can try to tear it by hand. The higher the strength, the better. Also, when you buy it, you should check whether there are any flaws in it. There are often problems such as water leakage and cracking in the flawed places.
