UltraCote, Transparent Yellow...


High tech polyester coveringUnique multi temperature-controlled adhesive shrinking systemVersatile and easy to applyPatented polymerizing process permanently fuses the color to the polyester movie covering, eliminating the possibilities of color-layer separation and permits repositioning of the covering on your model.Light weight at .18 oz/sq. ft.Fuel proof to radiance fuel, gas, and smoke oil.

Garage 9 UltraCote® is a high tech polyester covering that features a unique multi temperature-controlled adhesive and shrinkage system, making it flexible and easy to use. A patented polymerizing process permanently fuses the color to the polyester movie covering, eliminating the possibilities of color-layer separation and permits repositioning the covering on your model. UltraCote's distinct capability to both diminish and extend make it exceptional to other coverings for walking around tight curves and wingtips.
Temperature varieties are as follows:

Adhesion to wood starts at 200 to 220 degrees F.
Shrinkage onset starts at 300 degrees F.
Maximum shrinking is at 350 degrees F.


Surface Preparation:

The covering job can just be as good as the finish of the surface area it's applied over. In order for the covering to effectively comply with a surface, the surface area must first be smooth and tidy. Sand the model utilizing a sanding block and gradually finer sandpaper, with the final sanding being done with 320 grit paper. Vacuum away all of the dust, as specks of dust under the covering will leave unattractive bumps. Fill spaces and dents with a high-quality filler. If utilizing light-colored UltraCote® (such as white or yellow), utilize a tan-colored filler that matches the wood color to avoid the filler from showing through.

Pro Tip - Some professional contractors “raise the grain” then sand a second time with 320 or 400 grit paper for the ultimate finish. After the model is sanded, utilize a wet cloth to wipe down the model. Some modelers prefer to utilize a fine-mist squirt bottle filled with water to moisten the surface areas to be covered. As the surface area dries, anchored wood fibers in the surface area will “stand.” When dry, sand the surface areas once again utilizing 320 or 400 grit paper. Raising the grain now and sanding it off will avoid the grain from raising later on under the covering, creating a rough finish. Vacuum the model completely and prevent touching the model with oily hands.Your model is now prepared for covering!

Trim Movie to Size:

Start by covering the bottom of one wing half. Using scissors or sharp pastime knife, cut a piece of UltraCote® a few inches bigger than had to cover the wing. Eliminate the backing (conserve for later on) and position the covering with the adhesive (dull) side down, focused over the wing. Set the covering iron to the application temperature of 220°F.

Pro Tip - If the iron you're utilizing does not show the actual temperature, here is an idea that will ensure your iron is effectively set.Water boils at 212°F. Allow your iron to warm up at a medium setting. When the iron reaches its supported temperature, carefully put a few drops of water on the iron's surface area. Adjust the temperature until the water simply starts to boil off. This technique is surprisingly accurate and is usually within 10° (of the precise application temperature of 220).

Adding Covering to Spar:

Tack the covering to the spar or the high point of the wing, utilizing your iron as revealed (an iron sock is extremely recommened). Carefully pull the covering towards the root and towards the suggestion, as you work the iron from the center of the spar to the root and suggestion of the wing. Press carefully with the iron, enabling the heat (not pressure) to activate the adhesive and bond the covering to the high point. Ideally, the covering will naturally lay flat against the whole surface area with a minimum of wrinkles.

Covering a Solid-Sheeted Wing:

If covering a solid-sheeted wing, work from the center of the spar outward to the trailing edge and after that to the cutting edge as revealed, utilizing the iron at 220°F. If a wrinkle develops, the covering can be carefully lifted and reapplied.

Covering an Open-Structure Wing:

If covering an open-structure wing, work from the spar towards the trailing edge, carefully moving the iron (set at 220°) towards the trailing edge with the iron calling two ribs. Using your iron, adhere the covering to the staying ribs, pursuing the suggestion and the root. Now complete the open structure leading edge, utilizing the exact same technique. If the leading edge is sheeted, then follow the method noted above under “Covering a Solid-Sheeted Wing.”

Sealing the Edges:

With the iron set to 220°F, seal the leading and trailing edges. Using a straight edge and a sharp #11 pastime knife, carefully cut the excess covering from the leading and trailing edge, enabling a minimum of a 1/4" overlap to twist around the leading and trailing edge of the wing. Now seal the leading and trailing edges securely with the covering iron.

Wing Tip:

Depending on the quantity of the curvature of the wing suggestion, high heat (up to 350°F) may be had to diminish and extend the covering to remove all the wrinkles. Preset the iron to 300°F. Pull and extend the covering around the wing suggestion while using heat with the iron. Remember, UltraCote® can be carefully lifted and rearranged to help remove wrinkles. This feature is advantageous, specifically when covering dramatically curved wing suggestions. Continue working, pulling, and warming the covering around the suggestion until the covering is past the center of the suggestion. It may be needed to increase the temperature of the iron to attain higher shrinking to remove all wrinkles. Cut the excess covering utilizing a #11 pastime knife, then reseal the covering on the wing suggestion.

Pro Tip - If sealing the covering in tight locations such as corners or fillets, utilizing the Hanger 9 ProTrim Sealing Tool is extremely handy and results in a professional finish.

Covering the Top of the Wing:

Using the backing from the wing panel that you simply covered as a template, cut a piece of UltraCote® to be applied to the top of the wing.
