Numerous people can not tell the difference between PE tarpaulin and PVC tarpaulin. Literally speaking, PE and PVC are surely different.

PE The chemical name is polyethylene, which is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material and is the material for making PE tarpaulins. So what are the characteristics of PE?

We learned that polyethylene is odorless, non-toxic, feels like wax, has excellent low-temperature resistance, good water immersion, good electrical sequestration performance, can be used typically at-70 to 100 degrees Celsius, and has good chemical stability.

HDPE(high-viscosity polyethylene) is generally used in the product of PE tarpaulin.

This material has a high service temperature, good hardness, mechanical strength, and chemical resistance. Polyethylene is suitable for concave blow molding, injection molding, and extrusion of colorful products( hard), similar to colorful holders, nets, packing videotapes, and can be used as string cladding, pipes, penciled accouterments, wastes, etc.

PVC tarpaulin is a plastic-coated high-strength polyester tarpaulin.

It’s grounded on high-strength polyester oil, carpeted with polyvinyl chloride( PVC) paste resin, and equipped with accelerators,anti-fungal agents,anti-aging agents, antistatic agents, etc. A variety of chemical complements are plasticized at high temperatures. It’s leakproof, mildew- evidence, cold- resistant, growing- resistant,anti-static and other parcels; and the breaking strength, gash extension, and tearing strength of this product are much better than traditional tarpaulins; the appearance of the product is varied and pleasing to the eye. The face is specially treated to help it slip. It’s an internationally popular leakproof cloth, and its range is extremely large, reaching 2 measures wide. When the finished product is reused, it can reduce seams and ameliorate quality. It can be heat-sealed and sutured, barring the need to worry about water leakage from sewing perforations. And according to stoner needs to produce products with different functions, different colors, and different densities.

PE tarpaulin and PVC tarpaulin have different fabric material

PE tarpaulin raw material generally relates to color banded cloth, which is carpeted with PE film on both sides of PE woven cloth, and polypropylene woven cloth is also used. The production process is drawing- indirect weaving-double- sided coating. This kind of tarpaulin has poor leakproof performance. Generally, it can not guarantee leakproof performance after one use. The disadvantage is that it’s easy to wear and tear. The advantage is that it’s light in weight, clean, and pollution-free.

PVC tarpaulin is a polyester hair base fabric and double-sided coated PVC paste resin because it’s a dipping process, one-time molding, there’s PVC slurry in the gap of the cloth, so the leakproof performance is good, its production process is polyester hair cloth-Plastic dip coating- drying and shaping- calender cooling- winding, now the tarpaulins on the exchanges, storehouse yards, and other leakproof products are all made of PVC tarpaulins. PVC material has good rain resistance, PVC has good fatigue resistance, and the anti-aging of PVC tarpaulin is much better than PP and PE tarpaulin.
