Tarpaulins for agricultural buildings, large tents, marine tarpaulins, pool covers, bulk packaging and much more have long been the domain of PVC. We wanted to change that, because weight, stiffness, plasticizers as additives, the development of toxic fumes in case of fire and difficult recycling are just some of the disadvantages of this material. So we set out to redefine tarpaulin materials. Our answer: the TPO-based fabric tarpaulin CaLiner.
The CaLiner fabric tarpaulin based on thermoplastic polyolefins meets three essential market requirements in one product: UV-resistant, difficult to deﬂammable, recyclable. In addition, it offers a whole range of advantages for every application:
- 50% lighter,
- 50 % longer service life than comparable competitor products
- Better light diffusion
- Good fire properties
- Flexible and easy to apply
- Can be welded and glued
- For temperatures down to -40 °C + 80 °C
- Pure, 100 % recyclable
- No expansion of the material at high temperatures
- Odorless, free of plasticizers and solvents
- Easy to clean with soap and water
- Suitable for contact with food
- Different tints possible
PVC is on the retreat across the board because of the potential danger to health and the environment. Thermoplastic polyolefins do not contain substances that are hazardous to health, such as solvents and plasticizers. TPO-based products emit virtually no pollutants into the environment, and they do not emit toxic or corrosive fumes in the event of a fire. When TPO materials are burned, essentially only carbon dioxide and water vapor are produced.
Polyolefins are also easy to recycle. As with any recycling process, the purer the better. That's why, in the case of fabric-reinforced tarpaulin fabrics, we focus on developing single-variety products in which the fabric and coating are made exclusively of TPO.
