Ripstop-design PVC Tarpaulin is not novel in textile market, but it is scarce in Malaysia especially for synthetic fabric like PVC Tarpaulin.
Ripstop woven design involves using a special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping. During weaving, thick reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern. Older lightweight Ripstop design display the thicker interlocking thread patterns in the material quite prominently, but we have adopted more modern weaving techniques in our PVC Tarpaulin which make the Ripstop threads less obvious. A similar effect can be achieved by weaving two or three fine yarns together at smaller intervals.
Great advantages can be achieved by adopting Ripstop woven design, such design can reduce the wear on the fabrics which are in direct contact with the ground or the wind, and is made in strength-to-weight ratio and that small tears will not easily spread and thus make our ripstop canvas more durable than its contemporary.
