They are faced with the purchase of a party tent and wondering which material is best suited for your purposes? In the text, you will get an overview of the different materials PE and PVC and learn which tents for sale are better to match your needs.

What qualities must a PE tent have?

A party tent from PE in the size 6×12 is typical. The PE tents are waterproof, durable and UV resistant. The roof and side curtains are made of 240g / m2 massive PE and are double stitched. Roof covers in one piece, to strengthen the stability of the tent. In the summer months, PE tents also offer excellent protection against intense sunlight, because Plan of PE materials is UV-resistant.

A PE tent is suitable for anyone wanting to:

What features has a PVC tent?

A fireproof PVC party tent in the size 6×12. The PVC tents are distinguished by an extraordinary longevity. They are UV resistant, waterproof to 100% and remarkably resilient. Through material robustness, a shelter of this kind is particularly resistant to stress cracking and ideal for use all year round. The seams of our covers are welded in the high-temperature process and thus extremely robust and completely waterproof. All covers are made of extra strong PVC material and feature a durable grid inner fabric. Between about 500 g / m² to 720 g / sqm weigh our extremely stable PVC tarpaulins. By comparison, the PVC tarpaulin of a truck weighs an average of 700 g / sqm.

PVC is fire retardant. Our model series ECONOMY, PLUS, PLUS PREMIUM, PROFESSIONAL PLUS and PLUS VIKING we even provide a certificate on fire safety. To match our PVC tents not only German but also, for example, the Austrian, Swiss and other European requirements for fire-proof tents. These certifications can be found at competitors barely.

  • want to cook or barbecue or in a tent
  • want for their event catering or buffet
  • want to allow smoking in the tent
  • planning an event, have to be considered on the fire protection measures

PE and PVC: Small Material Science

Polyethylene (PE short, also called polyethylene) is adjacent to the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic of the most commonly produced. He is very versatile and is for buckets, plastic bags, freezer bags, crates, baskets, garbage cans and much more used. Also, pipes or cable insulations are made from PE. PE belongs (plastically formable =), which is always soft, the more you heat the plastic family of thermoplastics. In contact with chemicals but PE is very resistant: Opposite salt solutions, alkalis and inorganic acids, the material is resistant. PE is obtained by the polymerization of ethene, a gaseous substance formed by the petrochemical processing of crude oil. The fundamental distinction between two types of PE: The stretchable LDPE (LD = low density) are produced from, for example, plastic bags and films, as well as the most stable PE-HD (HD = high frequency), which is suitable for, among another manufacturing, is used by pipes.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC short) comes in a large amount in a variety of areas for use. The elasticity of PVC can be varied very well by the addition of various substances during the manufacturing process. Therefore, this plastic one hand in solid form (hard PVC, an amorphous thermoplastic) is used for products such as gutters, pipes, records and suitcases, the other hand also for flooring or garden hoses (soft PVC – an elastic, rubber-like thermoplastic, which by the is prepared adding plasticizers). In the mild form, PVC is so flexible that it can be applied even as PVC “paste” in raincoats and the foam of upholstered furniture. Also, the plastic is resistant to alcohols, bases, fats, acids and oils. PVC is very low flammability.
