A traditional style 100% cotton canvas tarpaulin made from single filled cotton duck, available in a roll of 6ft x 80ft / 1.8m x 24m.
This waterproof canvas tarpaulin is imported from India, where the material has been wax processed to make it water resistant. Our Canvas rolls of tarpaulin are sold without eyelets, hems or seams, and so are very popular with tarpaulin makers. The weight of the proofed canvas is 18oz.
Fabricated from a natural fabric, Canvas is breathable; however please bear in mind that a minimal amount of shrinkage can occur where canvas is subject to varying temperatures. Our robust canvas tarps are wax-proofed to make them water-resistant. They will require re-treating after exposure to water, in order to maintain their resistant properties.
Note: These tarpaulins are wax-proofed and have been dyed, and so there can be a risk of colour transference upon application – please take caution. We do not recommend that these tarpaulins are suspended solely by the eyelets if using as an outdoor canopy. It is highly recommended to use a ridge line, or a couple ridge lines on larger sizes, made of rope or bungee which will help support the weight of the tarp. This will also help with a run-off of water as water can pool if tarps are suspended only by the eyelets, adding extra pressure and weight. Use as many of the eyelets provided and install additional eyelets if required, especially if there are stress points.
