Vinyl mesh is one of the most commonly used materials in the world. Available in different weights and strengths, it’s used for everything from tote bags to patio sling chairs to banners, truck tarps and beyond. Most woven vinyl mesh fabric starts with a polyester yarn as the core, which is then extruded with vinyl (also known as PVC). Each yarn is individually extruded and bonded to the polyester core yarn. The PVC coating means that no moisture can reach the polyester fiber, making it extremely durable and prevents wear from freezing and thawing in cold weather.
