What can you use PVC tarps for?
Tarps are used widely in many industries.
Some of the industries where tarps are used:

Construction: PVC tarps can be used to cover building materials. In addition, they can be used as drip sheets while painting. Another great use for tarps is to temporarily cover holes in a roof or create barriers between sections of the house while you finish the construction.
Agriculture: Tarps are used to create curtains for chicken houses which helps regulate temperature and light. There is also a special tarp which has been used extensively by farmers Africa, Australia and Canada to protect their grain. This type of tarp prevents the grain from getting moulding or caking due to extreme heat which you would experience with a regular PVC tarp. The base cloth of the grain-specific tarp also has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. The PVC is made with food-grade materials which ensure harmful chemicals won’t go into your crop.
Tarps can also be used commercially.
