Our cotton canvas with Canvak® and PyroSnuff™ coatings is a water-resistant, mildew-resistant and fire-retardant fabric that meets the CPAI-84 flame-retardant specification.
Canvak is a breathable material, so it's less likely to cause condensation and can therefore help reduce rusting. And that makes this fabric ideal for truck tarps and covers for lumber, outdoor machinery, pumps and generators. This waxed paraffin coated material is often used for vintage and reproduction military tents and bags. It's also great for outdoor sporting and camping gear like backpacks and duffle bags, seat covers, duck blinds, tarps, etc.
Another benefit of this natural material is that it's more durable and less likely to crack in cold weather than synthetic materials.
The PyroSnuff FR coating makes this fabric useful in applications like welding curtains, asphalt tarps and other settings where high temperatures are involved.
Canvak Care Instructions
DO NOT USE DETERGENTS! DO NOT DRY CLEAN! We recommend using a hose to rinse any dirt and debris from your Canvak. If you need to remove dirty spots or stains, use a soft scrub brush. For stubborn spots, you can use a mild bar soap or saddle soap. Allow Canvak fabric to air dry.
A note about Canvak: You may notice a slight musty odor when you first remove your Canvak canvas from the package. This is normal! (It is the paraffin coating.) This lessens over time, however it may continue to be noticeable. If you have any concerns, please request a sample prior to your order.
