What's new in this issue

Polytuf tarps now even tougher Polytuf tarps now even tougher
Using strong, resilient tarpaulins are a must in Australia’s harsh climate and the Polytuf brand has set the benchmark for tarps, with its latest innovation seeing the introduction of its XPO Industrial Grade tarp range.
Not only does XPO offer greater strength and durability than conventional polyethylene tarps, XPO surpasses heavy duty and expensive PVC tarps, according to Polyturf.
An XPO tarp offers near equivalent strength to a 500gsm PVC tarp, yet is around 45 per cent lighter. Environmentally, XPO is fully recyclable, while PVC is not.
XPO features include riveted reinforced corners, 90cm eyelet spacing and ultrasonically welded hems. XPO also has Polytuf’s Sunshield-UVI treatment, a specially formulated ultra violet inhibitor that helps maximise sunlight resistance. The XPO range includes five tarp sizes, starting at a trailer sized at 1.8 x 2.4 metres square and goes up to 4.9 x 6.1 metres square, all backed by a market-leading five year warranty.
XPO tarps feature eye-catching packaging which includes a QR code, allowing those with smartphones to easily access the Polytuf website for additional information. For the retailer, XPO tarps also supplied in shelf ready trays, complete with a lift-off lid, which not only ensures consumer product selection is quick and easy, but also makes retailer stock maintenance a breeze!
