Choosing the right grade of tarpaulin depends heavily on the intended use and the environment in which it will be deployed. As a leading supplier Welpack Industries Pvt. Ltd. offers a wide range of HDPE tarpaulin grades to cater to diverse needs, from lightweight covers to heavy-duty protections. Here’s a guide to understanding what each grade can offer and how to choose the best one for your purposes.

Here are the grades of HDPE tarpaulins available at Welpack Industries Pvt. Ltd., along with their typical applications:

    • A balance between durability and flexibility, perfect for medium-duty applications like market stalls and public event coverings.

Choosing the Best Grade for Your Needs

The “best” grade largely depends on your specific requirements:

  • For light, temporary use, lower GSM grades like 90GSM or 120GSM are sufficient.
  • For general outdoor use, mid-range grades like 150GSM to 200GSM offer a good mix of durability and handling ease.
  • For heavy-duty or commercial applications, higher grades like 250GSM to 425GSM are recommended.
