10' x 12' White Canvas Tarp
A white canvas tarp from Canopies and Tarps will stand up to repeated use.
If you are one of the people who prefer canvas tarps, you'll be pleased with the quality material you'll find in this 10' x 12' canvas tarp. We use 100% single filled, military-grade cotton duct fabric with double-stitched seams and triple-thick hems. The result is a tarp that has a good, 10-ounce per square yard weight, and is also breathable and strong. It's made to be water- and mildew-resistant, and it's a good choice for protecting outdoor furniture or landscaping features.
However, you should be aware of applications that canvas tarps are not suited for. For example, they are not recommended as car or boat covers because these tarps are fabricated using colored dye and waterproofing wax. Both may rub off and stain any painted surface the fabric is in contact with.
Trailer tarps should also not be made of canvas. As a material, canvas is not strong enough for the pulling force of wind generated while in transit.
In general, canvas tarps are not to be used in situations that call for excessive pulling on the grommets of the fabric. The high tensile strength needed for excessive pull force is not present in canvas tarps. You would want to use vinyl tarps if you're looking for a greater tensile strength. Finally, note that canvas tarps should not be used as canopy tops, divider curtains or side walls.
Canvas tarps are not waterproof, but water-resistant. This means the material of this tarp does have a saturation point and once that's met, it will leak in rain or any other case of constant contact with water.
Treated with water-repellent agents made from petroleum byproducts, canvas tarps will have a strong odor that lingers. On account of this, it is not advised to use canvas tarps inside or in poorly ventilated spaces. When the treated canvas is exposed to outside air, the odor will dissipate.
Due to the canvas material being 100% cotton fibers, the fabric of the tarp will shrink over time. How much it shrinks is dependent on environmental conditions, such as sun exposure, weather and humidity.
