Top 10 Most Dependable Outdoor Textiles

May 15, 2023 | News

In the battle of outdoor industrial fabrics versus the elements… Which textiles have what it takes!? While that sounds overly-corny and dramatic, what we’re trying to say is some fabrics serve more demanding purposes than others. TVF carries an array of outdoor industrial fabrics that are designed for strength and performance.

Strong and water resistant for industrial, agricultural, and ballfield covers, our 10 oz. and 14 oz. Vinyl Coated Polyester is lightweight, mildew resistant, and features a UV inhibitor.

A true industrial workhorse, our 18 oz. Vinyl Coated Polyester comes in 21 color options and it works great for durable truck tarps, industrial curtains, portable stalls, and oil booms. TVF offers a version with a flame retardant finish, a CPSIA Compliant version, and a double-reinforced ripstop construction version.

Our urethane-coated, durable water repellent (DWR) Nylon Pack Cloth is renowned for its military, tactical, and hunting gear uses, as well as its utility that ranges from sporting equipment to duffel bags and backpacks to horse blankets and chaps to flags and banners. Available in 28 colors.

SunMaster™ is a solution-dyed, urethane coated polyester that features a DWR finish that is ideal for boat and furniture covers, canopies and awnings, patio umbrellas, outdoor seating and pillows, and horse blankets. Its thicker, PVC-backed counterpart, SunMaster™ PLUS, is a solid solution for shade and garden applications and for grill covers, outdoor furniture covers, and more.

Lightweight and quite flexible, our urethane coated Nylon Oxford Cloth is available in 20 color options for uses that run the gamut: linings, flags, promotional bags, furniture and dust covers, tents, and soft advertising inflatables. Lightweight, DWR, and mildew resistant.

Stout enough for canopies, printable enough for banners and pop-up tents, versatile enough for custom covers, TVF’s 500 Denier Canopy Polyester shrugs off water, mildew, and UV rays.

Rugged as rugged gets! Our CANVAK™ and PYROSNUFF™ Treated Canvases feature customizable CANVAK™ (a waxed paraffin) and PYROSNUFF™ (a fire-retardant finish) with treatment levels to meet your industrial needs. From ag and truck tarps to hot asphalt and welding curtains, these single fill cotton fabrics weigh 10 oz. or 12 oz. in their base form and are undeniably tough.

Top Gun™ is a 600 denier woven polyester fabric that is acrylic coated. It’s durable and tear resistant enough to work for marine tarps, gazebos, canopies, and more. Its cousin, Top Gun 9™, also comes in 20 color options and features a clear back coat. Need a flame-retardant option? Try Top Gun FR™. The solution-dyed polyester Top Notch 1S™ features a clear urethane back coating.

Our 2 oz. 75 Denier Polyester Ripstop is a lightweight way to add DWR capabilities and supreme strength reinforcement to windbreakers, jacket and quilting linings, storage bags, sleeping bags, tents, and portable outdoor gear.

For super-durable outdoor uses ranging from marine tops, gazebos, and canopies to stools and cots to tarps and covers, Odyssey™ holds its own and is available in 17 colors.
