truck tarp material acadian industrial textilesAcadian Industrial Textiles supplies knitted polyethylene and woven polypropylene truck cover fabrics in a variety of constructions and patterns. Knitted HDPE (polyethylene) is the ideal fabric for mesh tarps used in the transport of waste and trash. Woven polypropylene has been a standard tarp for hauling asphalt, solid waste, and produce.

Our standard inventoried widths are 8′, 10′, 12′, and 13′ in woven fabric, as well as 6′, 10′, 12′, and 20′ in knitted fabric. We can also have custom widths made for your specific application.

If you are manufacturing tarps made from polypropylene or polyethylene, we have the finest fabrics at competitive prices stocked and ready to ship immediately. Here’s a breakdown of our truck tarp material:


Knitted high-density polyethylene shade fabrics offer more versatility than woven polypropylene. One of the many benefits of knitted shade is the elimination of fabricating prior to installation. While in truck cover applications the edges are typically fabricated with binding tape and grommets, for other applications, knitted polyethylene shade fabrics can be installed in roll form, using “S” hooks, wire ties or hog rings without the need for tape and grommets. Polyethylene is stronger, more pliable than polypropylene and is resistant to most chemicals. If torn or punctured, polyethylene knits will not fray or ravel. Our polyethylene knits are UV stabilized to provide durability and longevity against UV degradation.

Acadian Industrial Textiles maintains a full complement of high-density polyethylene knitted shade constructions ranging from 30% through 70%. Our standard widths are 6 ft., 10 ft., 12 ft., and 20 ft. Click here to download our knitted shade specification sheet.
