Tarps Now offers a full line of heat resistant blankets, high-temperature tarps, and other high-heat resistant shields and covers. There are many industrial and professional applications that require tarps and covers that can resist combustion even at extremely high temperatures. Using the correct product is important to the safety of the workers and those in the area of construction, welding, and more.
Our high-temperature tarps are ideal for the transportation of asphalt commands the material to be covered by a high temperature, flame retardant tarp. Other applications for high-temperature tarps and covers include storage of equipment in extreme weather. Some of the tarp materials also resist damage from chemicals and are useful in manufacturing, industrial, and laboratory situations for protection.
High heat resistant tarps and blankets can be made from several different materials including acrylic, aluminized, black and gold slag, silicone, silica, and RFL (Resorcinol Formaldehyde Latex). Each type of material offers unique benefits for specific applications of the heat-reflective tarp. RFL tarps are made of specially treated heavy-duty canvas and are particularly 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 to reduce the risk of combustion.
Vinyl tarps are lightweight and versatile. They are 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, area, and equipment from spatter and sparks.
