Truck Tarps and Covers for the Winter Season

Protect Your Customers’ Investments

This time of year, it’s critical for your customers to have truck covers and tarps that they can rely on. The snow, sleet, and rain in the winter months can cause a considerable amount of damage while transporting goods. Without a truck tarp, transported goods can be damaged or even destroyed, costing your customers in lost time, revenue, and a lowered reputation. The best way to prevent such destruction is to protect your customers’ investments with a quality-made cover or tarp. This will ensure that the transported cargo arrive to their destination in the same state that they left in.

Truck tarps will protect your customers’ cargo from all types of external elements. As a result, long distance journeys during adverse weather conditions won’t damage the goods being transported. This is because our high-quality tarpaulins have the strength and durability to withstand all that Mother Nature can throw at them. Furthermore, using a truck tarp will allow drivers to secure their load for their safety as well as the safety of other motorists during transport. We offer two different options for truck tarps, including Lumber Hauler Tarps and Steel Hauler Tarps.

Lumber Hauler Tarps

Our lumber tarps are manufactured with the highest quality fabrics and can cover any size rig. All vinyl seams are heat sealed and all of the hems are double lock stitched. These tarps are also available in any of our fine coated vinyl selection or with a combination of vinyl weights. Additionally, our standard tarps are 18 oz. vinyl coated fabric.

Steel Hauler Tarps

Our steel hauler tarps are available in the highest quality vinyl coated fabrics or the 15 oz. water resistant canvas. All seams are double lock stitched. Also, just like our lumber hauler tarps, this option also can cover any size rig your customers need.

Accessories Available

  • Rubber Tarp Straps
  • Cargo Restraint Equipment
  • Patch Kits
  • Reinforced Poly Repair Tape

Proud Supplier of CSM Fabrics

Supplier of CSM Fabrics

What is CSM?

Chlorosulphonated Polyethylene (CSM) is an improved version of chloroprene that offers superior chemical resistance, ozone/light resistance, and heat aging.

Also referred to as Hypalon®, this type of fabric coating can be used to prevent weathering conditions that can damage many industrial fabrics. Hypalon was discontinued by its manufacturer, DuPont, and the CSM material that is now used is a slightly altered formula.

Due to its low gas permeability, CSM is oftentimes used to manufacture quality inflatable boats and other structures to be used in a variety of environments, most notably in the water. Nearly all inflatable boats are created using either PVC or CSM/Hypalon fabric, as are coastal boats.

CSM Fabrics vs. PVC Fabrics

As with any material, each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages that should be taken into consideration when making your selection.

PVC fabric is significantly less expensive than CSM and is very strong. It can come in different thicknesses, such as .09mm and 1.2mm, but despite this it does not repel sunlight as well as CSM is able to.

Overall, CSM is more expensive than PVC, but has the added benefit of lasting much longer and protecting against sun exposure as well as being tolerant on fuel spills or fumes.

CSM also has a high tolerance against a variety of environments and different weather conditions. CSM is more favorable than PVC in hot climate areas. While PVC may be very useful there, precautions have to be taken to protect the boat where they are not as necessary with CSM. 

 

 

What to Expect from the Industrial Textile Industry in 2018

The industrial textiles industry is key to the manufacturing sector, and our Mauritzon team is proud to be at the forefront of the industry. Over three centuries, with family ownership spanning five generations, our company has manufactured and distributed quality wholesale industrial products across the nation. What can we do for you? Read on to learn more about Mauritzon and the upcoming 2018 textile forecast.

The Last of 2017

Part of planning for 2018 involves revisiting what went right in 2017. With positives like October’s National Manufacturing Day initiative, business across the industry work hard to inspire the next generation of skilled workers.

Product catalogs are also a great way to spread knowledge about a company’s products and capabilities. Our latest product catalog covered our industrial fabrics, awning and marine fabrics, tarpaulins, welding blankets and screens, divider curtains, and athletic covers and dividers.

2018 Predictions for Industrial Textiles

Expectations for the U.S. industrial textile industry are high and we hope to see even further advancements and successes throughout 2018. Industrial textiles have become a more important part of the textile and apparel manufacturing sector over the past few years, and this is not forecast to change.

The wholesale industrial fabrics and textile products we distribute appeal to diverse markets, from automotive and marine to sports and recreational. As the U.S. boating industry continues to unveil innovations and experience growing recreational boat sales, the demand for reliable marine fabrics will grow too. As always, the sports industry remains strong, driven at least in part by an increasing safety-conscious American population. In turn, products such as athletic covers for gyms, martial arts, and soccer fields will be highly sought-after.

Mauritzon textiles are constructed with heavy-duty materials to withstand the toughest elements and environments. Safety will continue to be at the forefront of our minds in everything we craft and distribute in 2018 and beyond, along with ensuring we consistently provide superior service and materials to our customers.

Mauritzon Celebrates National Manufacturing Day October 7

nmd-image-sept-2016Every October, companies across the U.S., Mexico, and Canada celebrate National Manufacturing Day. The day was created in part by the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International®, the National Association of Manufacturers, the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and the Manufacturing Institute. It is a day meant to focus on the challenges that many companies in the industry face, such as addressing misconceptions of what manufacturing really means.

Companies are invited to open their doors to the public and to STEM students to give them a better understanding of the manufacturing world. It is also a day to support communities and to encourage future generations to enter the manufacturing industry, which is ample with solid work opportunities. The idea is that if people are able to first hand experience the manufacturing workplace, they will better understand what manufacturing is and how it can better impact their lives and communities.

By banding together, companies can address issues that face the industry, such as a shortage of skilled labor, a misrepresented image of manufacturing, and how to connect with future generations to increase interest. Although the day is scheduled for October 7 this year, companies can always register their events for any time of year on the website.

Mauritzon is a wholesale manufacturer of textile products. We specialize in industrial fabrics, awning and marine fabrics, welding blankets, curtains and screens, athletic covers, tarpaulins, divider curtains, hardware and findings and custom products made out of canvas, polyethylene, vinyl, and neoprene.

With over 100 years in business and five generations of family ownership, Mauritzon has worked with hundreds of industries. We understand the importance manufacturing plays in the U.S. economy and believe in supporting National Manufacturing Day to better showcase the many facets our industry encompasses.

Mauritzon Supplies Truck Covers and Tarps for any Size Rig

It is a haulers responsibility to make sure that their loads are Tarp Cover Image March 2016protected from the elements day in and day out. They should also include safety as a top priority when getting ready to travel—a poorly covered rig is a danger to other drivers on the road. After a long winter, covers and tarps are probably not in top condition. Small tears and rips are indicators of wear that can cause covers to fail. With summer fast approaching, now is a great time to consider replacing your worn down covers with new, durable options from Mauritzon.

No matter how big the rig is, we can cover it. Made with outstanding craftsmanship and constructed from the highest quality fabrics, our truck covers and tarps are custom made to precisely fit each truck and included cargo.

Vinyl, Polyethylene and Polypropylene Offer Advantages to End-Users of Industrial Textile Products

As summer winds down this month, it’s time to start thinking ahead: It will soon be time to cover our boats, pools and outdoor living furniture to protect them from the unforgiving winter weather. The covers and tarps you will need are manufactured using a variety of industrial fabrics and textiles. These products are made from different kinds of materials, including vinyl, polyethylene and polypropylene. The materials used to manufacture industrial textiles have qualities and features that offer advantages to the end-users of industrial textile products – not to mention they make a world of difference in preparing for next year’s summer season.

Industrial fabrics that are laminated or coated with vinyl Vinyl Imageoffer strength and durability and are also resistant to punctures and tears. Vinyl coated fabrics are often used for industrial and military applications, covering trucks, heavy equipment, fields and more. It’s easy to see why they can also be used for awnings, signs and other outdoor consumer products. You can learn more about the vinyl industrial textiles we offer on our website.

Polyethylene and polypropylene are also used in the manufacturing of industrial fabrics. Both materials are used to create, what is known in the textile manufacturing industry, as olefin. Olefin is a man made fiber generally combined with other fibers to create outdoor fabric blends. In short, the main difference between polyethylene and polypropylene is that they are derived from different chemical compounds, or “monomers.” Polyethylene’s monomer is ethylene; while polypropylene’s monomer is propylene. Polypropylene is also considered to be more stiff and resistant to chemicals and organic solvents than polyethylene. Furthermore, polypropylene is non-stretching and less flexible than polyethylene, as we learn from differencebetween.com.

Products that need to be waterproof, durable, abrasion and UV-Polyethylene Image 2resistant (pool covers, marine covers, roof protectors and many types of tarps) are made with textiles using polyethylene and polypropylene. Mesh industrial fabrics are also made with these materials, offering both strength and breathability. To see some of the types of textiles and products we manufacturer with polyethylene and polypropylene, click here.

The above offers only a general overview of the different kinds of industrial textile materials, but you can learn more about industrial textile products made with vinyl, polyethylene and polypropylene by visiting our website. We are also available through e-mail: info@mauritzon.net or phone: 800-621-4352. Feel free to ask us any questions about industrial textile products!
