Canvas tarps are water-resistant and breathable, an ideal choice to cover stationary objects that need a fabric to protect equipment or supplies and to prevent condensation. Large canvas tarps can be used in outdoor and industrial settings, as the heavier fabric protects against climate changes.
Are canvas tarps waterproof?
Canvas tarps are water resistant, but not waterproof. Canvas tarps are coated with an oil that allows water to slip off the tarp when pitched correctly, however, when left unattended, the tarp will begin to collect and absorb water.
