Polyethylene tarpaulins have also proven to be a popular source when an inexpensive, water resistant fabric is needed. Tarps can be classified based on a diversity of factors, such as material type (polyethylene, canvas, vinyl, etc.), thickness, which is generally measured in millimeters or generalized into categories (such as “regular duty”, “heavy duty”, “super-heavy duty”, etc.), and grommet strength (simple vs. reinforced), among others.
