Canvas Tarp FAQ:
Canvas material is made by combining color dye and petroleum based waterproofing wax. Using cotton canvas tarps for boats, cars or any painted surface is not recommended as the color may rub off and stain the surface.
Canvas tarps are not designed to be used as trailer or hauling tarps. Canvas fabric does not have the tear strength to resist strong forces such as wind, especially wind encountered while in transit. It is highly recommended that a stronger material is used such as, 18 Ounce vinyl coated tarps.
Canvas tarps should not be used as divider curtains, canopy tops or as canopy side walls. Canvas material is not strong enough to withstand excessive pulling and tugging on the grommets or on the material itself. For applications that require excessive pulling or for replacement canopy applications, we recommend the vinyl or poly tarp material.
Canvas covers are not waterproof. The fabric is treated with a water repellent agent for temporary use in wet conditions. However, the canvas material does have a saturation point and will leak if left in continual contact with water, such as rain.
Canvas tarps will have a strong petroleum odor when initially received. The odor is due to the water repellent treatment. Each canvas tarp is coated with a petroleum based wax that helps deflect water from the surface of the tarp. After a few days of airing, the odor will start to dissipate. The odor is normal and to be expected.
Canvas tarps may shrink or stretch over time. The material is made from 100 percent cotton and contains much of the same characteristics as a cotton T-Shirt. The amount of shrinkage is totally dependent on environmental conditions the tarps are exposed to, such as weather, UV exposure and humidity.
Canvas tarp material should not be cleaned with regular household soaps or detergents. Household soap products may remove the water repellent treatment and cause excessive bleeding of the material. Our canvas covers should be cleaned with the appropriate canvas cleaning agents.
