Until now, the Silverline Brand Tarp Strap has been positioned as a Chinese-made natural rubber product and has been most popular among those operating vehicles in colder climates. Ancra announced that both the new Silverline Elite EPDM Tarp Strap and the original Silverline Natural Rubber Tarp Strap will be exclusively manufactured in the United States. Both will be available starting July 1.
Ancra currently offers the ultra-premium, EPDM-based Goldline Tarp Strap, and the company emphasized that the Goldline product has been manufactured in the U.S. since its introduction over 40 years ago.
The Silverline Elite and Goldline tarp straps are made of ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber, a material capable of delivering exceptional strength, durability and resistance to everyday environmental road conditions, like ultraviolet radiation. The Silverline Tarp Strap is made of natural rubber and also includes UV inhibitors to promote durability. It will remain pliable even in sub-zero temperatures.
