Which material is best for tarpaulin?

Traditional tarps are often made of polyester, canvas, nylon, polyethylene, and polypropylene. Tarps made mostly of polyethylene are more durable, stronger, and have a more waterproof ability as compared to other types of material like canvas.

How much GSM tarpaulin is best?

Generally, 100-120 GSM thick tarpaulin sheet is appropriate for regular use. If you want a thicker tarpaulin sheet, choose one with a higher GSM.

You can also buy a heavier tarpaulin if you need more durability. Besides the GSM, there are other important features to look for in a tarpaulin sheet.

What is the longest-lasting tarp material?


Vinyl is made with PVC (polyvinyl chloride), a plastic that remains flexible across a wide temperature range.

It is reinforced with a polyester scrim making it strong and tear-resistant, making vinyl one of the most durable tarp materials available.
