  • Materials
    Sheet / roll

    Woven HDPE black fibres fabric, double-side LDPE coating, reinforced with six bands of 75 mm width woven black HDPE fibres fabric and coated outside. Pre-punched 8 mm holes on the two side bands at 0.1 m +/-10% intervals, positioned in the centre of the bands (only the reinforcement bands are pre-punched, not the tarpaulin itself).

    Tensile strength

    Min 500 N, 15-25% elongation in warp and weft in plain sheet under ISO 1421-1

    UV resistance

    After 1500 hours UV under ASTM G53/94 (UVB 313 nm peak) minimum 80% of original value of the actual product and not less than 475 N

    Reinforcement bands

    Min 700 N as per ISO 1421-1, pulling lengthwise in a prepunched 8 mm hole with a hook of 8 mm wire diameter, at 200 mm from the end of the band. UV resistance 80% of original value and not less than 665 N.


    Only one is allowed, lengthwise. The tarpaulin tensile strength crossways at the place of welding under ISO 1421-1 minimum 50% of original value and not less than 400 N
