tarpaulin sometimes called tarps, are massive/flexible pieces of plastic sheeting that are mostly waterproof (depending on the make and purpose). some tarpaulins are made from cotton canvas, nylon and high-density polyethylene. below are some uses of tarpaulin:
tarpaulins can used to cover goods during transport and then they can also be used to house goods inside of a truck body so they are not exposed to the elements.
if you have any leaks or holes in a building due to damage then a quick covering with a tarpaulin can fix the leak.
3. temporary shelters:
in the case of a sudden need for shelter, a tarpaulin can provide a dry area for a few people or an entire family. you can easily take a tarp and use it to create a roof.
