Can I sew tarp material?

Can you cut and sew tarp?

Yes! You can cut the tarp where you need to. Then, fold the edge over about 1 inch and then again (double fold the edge). Use our Tarp Tape to hold the edge in place.

What is the best way to repair a tarp?

Lay the tarp flat if possible. Mate up the edges of the tear as best as you can. Peel the paper backing off the tarp repair tape a little at a time as you apply to the tear or hole. Rub the tape with firm pressure to assure a tight seal between the adhesive and the tarp.

Can tarps be repaired?

Any tarp repair begins with reviewing the damage and seeing if it is a quick fix or something more. Minor tears can be repaired using tarp tape or vinyl glue. Damage that is more substantial will require a patch with either a strong glue or a stitched repair.

Can you iron a tarp?

If you want to remove creases, or wrinkles, you can simply stretch the mesh tarp. Do not use an iron. You will melt the material.

What kind of glue works on tarps?

The Tarp Association recommends just one adhesive: HH-66.

No glue works better. HH-66 is waterproof, sets with a single application and bonds vinyl to itself with a seal stronger than the fabric. If your tarp or gym floor cover is too important for a tear, HH-66 is the tool for you.
