The materials for camping tents can be divided into fabrics, linings, primers and poles.
Compared to different fabrics, nylon silk is thin and light, suitable for mountaineering and hiking campers. Oxford is thick but heavy, suitable for making tents for driving camping or small groups. From the perspective of waterproof coating, PVC is waterproof, but it will be hard and brittle in winter, and it will be prone to creases or breaks. PU coating not only overcomes the defects of PVC, but also is very waterproof. Multi-coated PU, waterproof pressure up to 2000mm or more.
Lining (inside materials) usually uses cotton-type nylon silk with good air permeability. From the point of view of use, nylon silk performance is better than cotton. In camping outside, the tent is very easy to absorb moisture, the cotton cloth is not easy to mold, and the nylon silk is easy to dry and not mildew.
3, The bottom material
The main function of the bottom of the tent is waterproof, moisture-proof and dust-proof. The choice of the bottom material also determines the grade of the tent. Low-end tents are usually made of PE
The bottom material, and some use PVC, is low cost, double-sided laminating PE, although it has waterproof and moisture-proof functions, but it is easy to wear and leak, winter is the nemesis of PVC primer, and PU coated oxford cloth The primer, whether it is sturdy, cold-resistant or waterproof, greatly exceeds PE.
4, The pole
The pole of the tent is the skeleton of the tent. The pros and cons of the skeleton material not only affect the life of the tent, but also affect the stability of the tent. Early tent poles often used steel reinforcement, which not only increased the weight of the tent, but also the rebound strength. The improved tent skeleton uses glass fiber struts, which have reduced weight, improved resilience and lower cost. Therefore, current tent manufacturers often use such materials as struts, but the strength and firmness of glass struts are strong. Sex is not ideal, if the struts are thickened to increase the strength, but also increase the weight. The ideal struts are aluminum alloy materials. The struts connected by high-strength alloy tubes not only have high strength, but also light weight and good resilience. Especially the EASTON struts made of aerospace aluminum, various indicators They all reach an excellent state, so they are mostly used for high-end tents.
