Asphalt Tarps

What are Asphalt Tarps?

Asphalt Tarps are tarps specifically built from 18 ounce vinyl for dump trucks to keep asphalt hot on the journey from the asphalt plant to the paving site. Asphalt Tarps are built with a vinyl reinforced pocket and grommets on the end to attach to the Tarp Arm System crossbar and Tarp Wind-up System of a dump truck to enclose a load of asphalt and prevent it from sticking to the bed of a truck.

Over the last 40 years, Harp’s Tarps has been supplying haulers with two styles of asphalt tarps, including the non-flap LSA style asphalt tarp and AS style DOT compliant side flap model. If you work in the paving business, an asphalt tarp is an essential accessory for any dump truck. Our Dump Truck Tarps work with both Manual Tarping Systems and Complete Electric Tarping Systems.

Our seamless vinyl asphalt tarps are rated up to 300 degrees and will keep your load hot and protected on the way to a paving job. Purchasing an asphalt tarp for your dump truck will help you to avoid asphalt sticking to your dump bed and costly repairs.

What makes an Asphalt Tarp?

There are several key components to these tarps, which we define as:

Heavy Duty 18 oz Vinyl Coating

Our Asphalt Tarps feature pure 18oz vinyl material to ensure that your asphalt load stays warm throughout the day.

Seamless Single-Piece Construction

Our asphalt tarps are made using a single piece of fabric to ensure that welds and do not come apart on the road.

Webbing Reinforced Edges

Our dump truck tarps are built with secure double-stitched webbing reinforced edges to prevent fabric from fraying and to increase the lifespan of the tarp.

Reinforced Tarp Pocket

Our dump truck tarps are built to have a reinforced pocket with grommets to prevent sliding on the tarp crossbar. The typical dump truck tarp that we offer will have a 6″ tarp pocket to attach to a tarping system.


Rust-resistant brass grommets are placed on both ends of the tarp for easy attachment and to prevent sliding on the road.
