Reinforced Plastic Tarpaulin

UNHCR/UNICEF Standard

  • Key Features
    • Fire retardant (optional), waterproof, rotproof and UV-stabilised

    • Reinforced plastic tarpaulin in 4 m x 5 m sheets or 4 m x 50 m rolls developed by international research project and designed for long outdoor use in all climates

    • Made of woven high density black polyethylene (HDPE) fibers, warp x weft, coated on both sides with low density polyethylene (LDPE) coating

    • Highly recommended for family shelter protection

  • Dimensions
    Size / sheet

    4.00 m x 5.00 m ±1

    Size / roll

    4.00 m x 50.00 m ±1

  • Materials
    Sheet / roll

    190 gsm ±20 gsm woven Polyethylene (HDPE) inner black fibers, warp x weft, coated on both sides with LDPE coating

    Fire retardancy

    Pass CPAI section 5 and 6 with maximum 10s after flame average and maximum 30s after flame per test piece; Ageing under ISO 4892-2, type A, 360 hours.

    Denier

    Min 1000

    Tensile strength

    Min 600 N both directions warp and weft (BS 2576, 50 mm grab test or equivalent)

    Tear strength

    Min 100 N both directions (BS 4303 wing tear or equivalent) or under ISO 4674 (A2)

    UV resistance

    Max 5% loss of original tensile strength under ISO 1421 after 1500 hours UV under ASTM G53/94 (UVB 313 nm peak)

    Welding

    Only one is allowed, lengthwise. Min resistance 80% of original tarpaulin tensile strength in the weft under ISO 1421 plus additional procedure.

    Eyelets

    Aluminium reinforcement eyelets or equivalent on four sheet sides of single sheets at 100 cm (±5 cm) centre to centre, providing very strong fixation points
