Premium Canopy Fabrics

TARGA Canopy Fabric is a premium FR material with a tightly woven sailcloth as it foundation. The 100% high tenacity sailcloth construction gives TARGA its low stretch and bias stability for improved canopy shape holding and overall lighter weight compared to vinyl based fabrics.

TARGA white is coated on both sides for solvent-based or UV ink digital coating applications. The white coating will not yellow and provides brilliant color for canopy graphics that stand out in a crowd. In addition to white, TARGA is offered in a range of popular colors including a duo-tone Black/White style that incorporates a black-out coating to help darken canopy areas where fl at screen monitors may be used.

TARGA canopy cloth is fi re resistant and meets both NFPA 701 and California Title 19 code requirements.

* Digitally printed inks may impair the FR properties of TARGA fabric. So it is up to the user to establish the FR resistance of the finished canopy.
