High Temperature Tarps and Covers

High Temperature and Heat Resistant Tarps

There are several professional applications that require tarps and covers that can resist combustion even at extremely high temperatures. For example, transportation of asphalt requires the material to be covered by a high temperature, flame retardant tarp. Other applications for high temperature tarps and covers include welding, construction, and storage of equipment in extreme weather. Some materials also resist damage from chemicals such as acid so they are useful in laboratory and industrial situations. There are several different materials used to make these high temperature covers including Resorcinol Formaldehyde Latex (RFL), canvas, vinyl, and silicone. Each different material offers unique benefits for specific applications. For example, RFL tarps are made of specially treated heavy-duty canvas and are especially useful in applications involving work with asphalt. RFL material can withstand scalding even at extremely high temperatures and won't stick to asphalt. For applications that involve storing, covering, and protecting equipment for long periods of time, canvas high temperature tarps are useful. Because canvas is naturally breathable, it allows airflow around the equipment reducing the risk of combustion. Vinyl tarps are extremely lightweight and versatile. They're often used on construction sites to cover and protect structures and scaffolding. Several types of heat resistant tarps can serve as protective curtains during welding operations to protect the welder from sparks and grinding.

When you are deciding which heat resistant tarp covers will work best for your application, it's important to know that most materials have different heat limit specifications. For example, acrylic coated fiberglass material can withstand temperatures up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. On the other end of the scale, silica fabric is meets military specifications for resistance to heat and chemicals and is rated to withstand temperatures up to 1,800 degrees F. Because of this extremely high temperature resistance, this material works well as a welding blanket, furnace curtain, and stress relief blanket. It can protect welders from slag and molten spatter and also has an extremely high tensile strength of 220/110 lbs/in. Most types of high temperature covers come in several sizes and fabric grades so you can choose the exact specifications for your project. All tarps from Tarps Now are made in the USA so you can feel confident about the value and quality. These tarps are custom-made to order and include double-stitched hems and seams for durability. Most tarps also have brass grommets around the perimeter, usually spaced about 24 inches apart. Whether you are transporting asphalt or need a heat curtain for a welding shop, you can find the right high temperature tarps and covers at Tarps Now.
