Canvas Products FAQs
If you are thinking of purchasing a canvas product, you may be curious about why the fabric is so popular for a variety of uses. The following frequently asked questions may help you to better understand canvas' popularity:

What is canvas used for?
Canvas is a material that is used in various industries because of its many desirable attributes. It can be used in the automotive industry to make removable tops for Jeeps and convertibles. It is also used in the aviation industry for cockpit enclosures and dodgers. The military relies upon canvas for a variety of totes, backpacks, and bags. Additionally, the maritime industry relies upon canvas for a variety of things such as sails, covers, and umbrellas, and artists use canvas regularly for painting, drawing, and photography.

Why is it so popular?
Canvas is popular for many reasons, but one of the biggest reasons is its durability. There two main different types of canvas, and duck canvas is the most durable of the two because the threads are more tightly and more closely woven. Plain canvas is still very useful, however, and created a revolution within the art world when it was discovered how much easier it was to handle canvas as a painting service rather than a board of wood.

Is canvas waterproof?
Duck canvas is incredibly weather resistant, but it is not entirely water proof. Waterproof canvas is achieved when manufacturers treat the material with oils and waxes to create a waterproof seal. This is done for coats, boat fixtures, some totes, and tarps and covers.
