What’s the difference between PE tarpaulin and PVC tarpaulin?

There are so many people who can not distinguish PE tarpaulin and PVC tarpaulin. But from the name called, we can make sure these are two different materials products. Now please let Claire explain it to you.

PE: chemical name for polyethylene, it is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material, PE tarpaulin production generally uses HDPE (high-density polyethylene), and the production process is: polyethylene yarn – weaving – double side film. The features of PE tarpaulin are high-temperature resistance, waterproof, strong, durable, stable, anti-UV, flame retardant, etc.

The advantage of PE tarpaulin is lightweight, cheap price, clean and pollution-free. The disadvantage is easy to wear, waterproof performance is bad, and generally used once can not guarantee waterproof performance. So PE tarpaulin is generally used in temporary cargo, rain, dust-proof, and not suitable for long-term use in the open air environment.

PVC: chemical name for Polyvinyl chloride. PVC tarpaulin base material is high strength polyester fabric and double coating of PVC films, with mixed mildew preventive, inhibitor, antistatic agent, and other chemical reagents.

The features of PVC tarpaulin are waterproof, mildew, cold resistance, aging resistance, anti-static performance, breaking strength, tearing elongation, tearing strength, and aging and waterproof effect all are much better than PE tarpaulin. So PVC tarpaulin is mainly used for long-time outdoor goods cover rain, truck transport, cargo cover goods etc.

Another advantage of PVC tarpaulin it’s appearance bright and colorful, it is good to see. Large width, the processing of finished products can reduce the seam quality, available heat sealing stitching, sewing pinhole free from water Leakage.
