I: What is PVC Tarpaulin?

500D pvc tarpaulin is also PVC Tarpaulins, PVC tarpaulin is made up of high tensile polyester, high quality resin powder, plasticizer, stabilizer, proper amount of calcium powder, and tiny quantity of is a three-ply fabric consisting of a piece of Polyester base fabric laminated between two sheets of polyvinyl film(PVC). first is outer pvc film, in the middle is Polyester base fabric, ten is bottom PVC film again.

500D PVC Tarpaulin is with fabric 500D thickness in the middle and PVC Coating on two sides. The weight is usually 450-550gsm. They are widely used for different applications. So firstly we make clear what is pvc tarpaulin.

II: What is 500D pvc tarpaulin

The Polyester base fabric is measured by the weights of the thread(Denier) and the density of the weave(Liner, threads per inch) or count. The heavier the weight the higher the denier,like 300D*500D 500D*500D 840D*840D 1000D*1000D. 9*9 weave means 9 threads per inch by 9 treads per inch, like 9*9 12*12 14*14 18*18 20*20.The more threads per inch, more stronger of the pvc tarpaulin. we can use different combination of Denier and Liner to change pvc tarpaulin tearing strength and breaking strength, tensile strength etc.

500d stands for 500 denier and is not as thick or heavy duty as 500gsm. 500d simply refers to the thread used in a woven fabric, it is not an indication of the compactness of the threads and certainly not an indication of the strength or weight of the material.

III: Different PVC Film of Tarpaulin:

We also can adjust thickness and structure of pvc film to control tarpaulin weight, by changing formulation to enable certain properties such as flame retardant, antimicrobial, antistatic and ultra violet protected.PVC Film hardness can also cause different hand feeling. When producing we can use different technology like cold lamination, hot lamination, knife coating for different application of material. Different embossing roller can make the tarpaulin surface glossy, matte or embossed.

IV: Characteristics:

a.3-ply composite structure makes it stronger than other tarpaulin.

b. Industrial grade, polyester coated on both sides

c. High abrasion resistance and tear strength, non-peeling, non-crack surface

d. Flexible, easy to fold and carry

e. Waterproof, resist oil, acid, grease and mildew.

f. Heavy duty durable, more than 8 years service life.

g. Temperature: -30℃ ~ +70℃

h. Ideal for agriculture, construction, industrial and trucks

V:500D PVC Tarpaulin Applications:

500D PVC Tarpaulin are widely used for these purposes:

1. General waterproof covers;

2. Awnings;

3. Shelters;

4. Waterproof dry bags;

5. Waterproof aprons;
