Rip-stop tarpaulin VS high density tarpaulin, which one is easier to tear ?


1.1  What is the Ripstop tarpaulin ?
Ripstop tarpaulin are made from high strength, ripstop pattern woven nylon fabric with a PVC coating for impermeability

1.2 Features & Benefits of Ripstop tarpaulin  PVC:   

  1. 100% Waterproof
  2. Tear Stop Weave
  3. UV stabilized
  4. Mildew resistant
  5. Fire retardant
  6. High resistance to soiling
  7. Excellent welding properties
  8. Can be Acrylic-lacquered
  9. High tenacity polyester yarn

1.3 Ripstop tarpaulin woven design involves using a special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping.
    During weaving, (thick) reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern. This is to make it strong and tear resistant.
   Ripstop tarpaulin  7000 is designed for the toughest applications. Recommended for tarpaulins and truck covers.


2.1 What is the high density tarpaulin ?
High Density  Tarpaulin it is 100% water proof and rot proof (optional), heavy in weight than all other tarpaulins, shrinks in length and width when it gets wet, biodegradable,
Durable waterproof, non – breathiness.

2.2 Salient Features & Benefits of high density tarpaulin:  

  1. High tearing strength
  2. Smooth finish
  3. UV protected
  4. Lightweight
  5. Water proof
  6. Material: PVC
  7. Color: all colors available
  8. Size: all sizes available

2.3 High density  tarpaulin is a product with multiple end uses: Covering,Sheltering,Wagon Cover,Truck ...
 It is excellent for covering products,
thereby protecting them from moisture and dust and can be used as a protective covering in sectors like agriculture, infrastructure, automobiles and also as tents, floor spreads, as a cover for machinery, etc.

3.1 About the tearing strength
Tarpaulins having great tear strength. They are produced by weaving base fabrics from a mixture of a prin-cipal thread and a second thread.

Ripstop tarpaulin means that when you look at the fabric close up you will see a cross hatch in the weave.
If you want strong, fun, hard wearing and colorful waterproof fabrics then these PVC coated ripstop fabrics maybe right for you.

In short, looking at the tear strength of these two fabrics, in the case of the same thick yarn, the density is lower and it is easier to tear.
