It is a woven polyethylene (LDPE) fabric coated with a UV-resistant layer to minimize fading. The weave allows it to flex in windy conditions and reduces fraying or tearing. It is approximately 6 mil thick (6/1000"), slightly thicker than traditional tarps.
Most of our inventory is unmarked, so we are unsure of exact sizes, however the most common sizes are 12’ x 24’ and 10' x 36'. They weigh approximately 10-15 pounds each, and are compactly folded for easy transportation. Other sizes may be available; we weigh each piece of folded material to infer an estimated size, and, generally, the heavier the piece of material, the larger it is.
It is 100% waterproof and will not promote mold or mildew.
Some have pockets/sleeves along all four sides, but most do not. You can run pipe, cable or rope through the pockets for even distribution. They do not have grommets, but you can add them with a kit from a hardware store. You can also use Grip-Clips, staples, or other industrial clamps.
There is an advertisement or print on one side, but the other side is a solid, light grey color. We recommend keeping the advertisement side down, so only the backside is showing. The print is waterproof, and will not bleed.
These reclaimed billboard signs are BRAND NEW and were NEVER INSTALLED! We guarantee they are in perfect condition without holes or tears. We will gladly replace them if you find a hole.
