PVC.

Price and Availability. Buy Now using PayPal.

100% waterproof, is actually PVC over a polyester 3mm square grid (think of noughts & crosses) to provide strength, about 200 microns (25 thou”) thick and therefore both heavy and very tough. Warning though, it is quite difficult to sew; you will need a robust domestic sewing machine, or an industrial one, request a sample to try it.

We use it for the base of our motorcycle bike bags and our narrow boat cratch covers; and this is another of the material choices for our dinghy covers.

This is a material similar to, although not as thick as, that used for the curtain sides on lorries.

Also used for made-to-order jobs requiring 100% waterproof and heavyweight.

Use it for anything where you want total 100% waterproof, and you do need heavyweight.

Available off the roll in a width of 6 feet 9 inches / 2.05 metres, in a choice of 2 colours. Minimum 1 foot / 300mm.

DEFINITION OF TERMS (click to show/hide definitions)

Denier (or D) can be roughly defined as the diameter (thickness) of the thread used to weave the textile, and this approximation is acceptable for everyday use.

A textile can be defined as a fabric or cloth created by either weaving or knitting (also crocheting & felting) with a thread, fibre or yarn.

Breathability is about water vapour evaporation, not breathing ! For a technical definition go to the BSI (British Standards Institute) website; our textiles comply with BS3424 (water vapour permeability).

We also use two plastic materials, for which thickness is defined in microns. A micron is 1/1000th of a millimetre; for comparison, a human hair is about 100 microns. For true English we also show the approximate 1/1000th of an inch equivalent !

These plastics are 100% waterproof (ie completely impervious to water) and therefore not breathable.
