A traditional style Water Resistant Canvas Tarpaulins Tan 18OZ made from single filled cotton duck. These tarpaulins are imported from India and are wax processed to make them water-resistant. Seams and hems are double rows stitched, and brass eyelets are spaced at 2ft intervals (60cms) in reinforced tabs (please note: on any 4ft dimensions, eyelets will be sited at the corners only). The weight of the proofed canvas is 18oz.
Fabricated from a natural fabric, these hardy tarps are breathable; however please bear in mind that a minimal amount of shrinkage can occur where canvas tarpaulins are subject to varying temperatures. Canvas tarpaulins will require re-treating after exposure to water, in order to maintain their resistant properties.
Our 18oz canvas is also available on a roll, size 6ft x 80ft / 1.8m x 24m. Popular with tarpaulin fabricators, the Canvas roll is sold without eyelets, hems or seams.

Note: These tarpaulins are wax-proofed and have been dyed, and so there can be a risk of color transference upon application – please take caution. We do not recommend that these tarpaulins are suspended solely by the eyelets if using as an outdoor canopy. It is highly recommended to use a ridgeline, or a couple of ridgelines on larger sizes, made of rope or bungee which will help support the weight of the tarp. This will also help with a run-off of water as water can pool if tarps are suspended only by the eyelets, adding extra pressure and weight. Use as many of the eyelets provided and install additional eyelets if required, especially if there are stress points.
