What is Poly Tarpaulin? – Polyethylene Tarpaulin

Polyethylene tarpaulin or Poly tarp is a type of tarpaulin that uses woven strips of polyethylene plastic, bonded and laminated with sheets of the same material, making it strong and resilient. It is the most common plastic tarp on the market because it is inexpensive yet durable. Poly tarps can resist stretching, being exposed to the elements, and is waterproof.

The invention of the poly trap started in 1936 when polyethylene was invented by accident in Britain after scientists attempted to test ethylene with different chemicals under high pressure. Because polyethylene is such a versatile material, it became the most widely used type of plastic in the market. Polyethylene plastic dominated the plastic market, and almost everything, from shopping bags to plastic containers, is made from this material.

Polyethylene developed 40 years after its discovery, and in 1970, it was made into tarpaulins. Poly tarps are significantly compact, versatile, and flexible. Some poly tarps are treated against ultraviolet light, which dramatically increases their durability and lifespan. A typical poly tarp has a life expectancy of almost four years in temperate climates. However, in areas with hot climates like in Florida, In Arizona, Africa, California, and India, poly tarps tend to last one to two years.
