Tarpaulin is a large waterproof polymer, available in different sizes, made of plastic, such as HDPE (high density polyethylene), LDPE (low density ethylene) or PVC (polyvinyl chloride). All three are thermoplastics, which can withstand heat and sunlight for longer periods of time. Tarpaulin is a kind of magical product. Its basic performance is waterproof. It can be customized for fire and flame retardant series, as well as anti-static, anti-mildew, and anti-freeze series. Suitable for coverage of any product. They cover food, fences, machines, trucks, boats, cars, warehouses, outdoor furniture, stakes, etc. It can be used as a simple tent for shelters, camping, etc. Tarpaulins usually have strong grommets at the corners or edges to facilitate the use of ropes for binding, hanging or covering. It is important to choose a heavy-duty multi-purpose tarp. They are used for industrial and commercial purposes. Heavy duty tarpaulin is one of the most useful inventions. It is more durable and has a longer lifespan than ordinary tarpaulins.

Traditionally, tarpaulin was used to cover cargo on ships, from where it got its name. Tar means "tarnished" and palling means "canvas". Different types of tarpaulins can be made of different materials, and different thicknesses can be applied to various types. For example, canvas tarpaulin is used for covering flat trucks, polyurethane coated polyester tarpaulin is used for waterproof function, and so on.
