Qual é a tradução de "canvas tarp", como no texto abaixo?


Look at him! " He seemed angry. " This could be you. His body is dust. His immortal soul now regrets the wickedness of his life! " He glared at Moshe and then at each observer in turn. " Think about it. " The men of Hanita exchanged astonished looks. Samuel Orde preached with the zeal of a prophet in the wilderness. Some were angered by his boldness, but most were simply surprised. Orde opened the trunk of his staff car and spread out a canvas tarp.

A tarpaulin or tarp is a large sheet of strong, flexible, water resistant or waterproof material, often cloth such as canvas or polyester coated with plastics such as latex or PVC. In some places such as Australia, and in military slang, a tarp may be known as a hootchie. Tarps often have reinforced grommets at the corners and along the sides to form attachment points for rope, allowing them to be tied down or suspended. Inexpensive modern tarps are made from woven polyethylene; this material is so associated with tarps that it has become known as polytarp.
