Polyester Fabric

Heavy Duty For more rigorous operations such as aerobatics, agricultural, bush aircraft, and former military aircraft.
Medium Heavier and stronger fabric styles for normal service on aircraft with a wing loading 9 lb per square foot and over.
Uncertified Light Specially designed for covering plywood surfaces on any aircraft and for ultralight aircraft that is not certified.  Fabric is unstamped.  Not approved for certified aircraft.

Pinked Edge Finishing
Tapes

Available in Light and Medium.  All styles of linear and bias finishing tape may be used interchangeably on any fabric style.  Bias tapes (weave pattern 45 degrees to the edge) are suggested for installation over compound surfaces such as around wingtips and tail surfaces.  Bias tape will stretch to conform to the required contour without heat shrinking edges or cutting and notching to remove excess fabric.  Stretching reduces the width about 35% thus 3" will pull to about 2" width around a sharp contour, and 2" will pull to approximately 1 3/8" width.

Rib Lace Reinforcing Tape

A custom woven high-strength polyester filament twill tape with a paper-protected high-tack adhesive coating on one side for quick application and bonding during rib lacing procedure.  Available in 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" widths.  Where additional width is required on wide ribs, two or more tapes may be positioned side by side.

Inter-Rib Brace Tape

Used to brace ribs before covering.  Comes 36 yards long by 3/8" wide.

Polyester Thread & Cord

Machine Sewing Thread  10 lb. tensile strength, 4 ply thread.  Packaged 500 yards per spool.
Hand Sewing Thread  15 lb. tensile strength.  3 ply uncoated thread. Packaged 250 yards per spool.
Rib Lacing Cord  Two styles of lacing cord are available, both impregnated with microcrystalline fungicidal wax and packaged 500 yards per spool.
Standard Round - 4 ply .035" diameter, 60 lb. tensile strength
Flat Braided - .012" thick x approx. .080" wide, 50 lb. tensile strength.  Recommended when the minimum rib cord protrusion is desired.

Poly-Fiber Coatings

Poly-Tak Adhesive  A high strength, fast drying, one part cement manufactured from a proprietary formula especially to attach polyester fabric to an airframe.  It is FAA approved with the Poly-Fiber STC for use in making a 2" overlap cement seam on the wing leading edge and a 1" overlap cement seam on the balance of the aircraft, regardless of the wing loading or maximum speed.  No other aircraft fabric cement has this approval.  Poly-Tak is also an excellent cement for cotton, linen, and glass fiber, and will adhere to most surfaces for shear load bonding.  Add Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) when necessary to reduce viscosity due to solvent evaporation from an open container.  Shelf Life:  Guaranteed two years unopened in protected storage under 100 degrees.  Not affected by freezing.  Do not use if appears dark or whiskey colored.  Poly-Tak should be clear.  Discolored cement has been heat damaged.  Available in one pint, one quart and one gallon 50 plate tin-lined cans.  Do not transfer to unlined ferrous metal container for storage.

Poly-Brush
  Poly-Brush is a high solids, one part air drying adhesive coating formulated for the first and second coats to penetrate and seal the fabric weave and attach all polyester finishing tapes and reinforcing patches.  It provides twice the peel resistance as nitrate dope on polyester fabric. 

Poly-Brush is thinned 3 parts Poly-Brush to 1 Poly-Fiber Reducer R 65-75 (65-75 degrees) or Poly-fiber Reducer RR 8500 (above 85 degrees). Until 1980, Poly-Brush was supplied with a translucent white tint caused by a small quantity of white pigment, antimony oxide, one of the fire retardants.  We now also add a small quantity of red oxide pigment as a visual aid for application uniformity.  The original un-tinted Poly-Brush is available on request and recommended in the cockpit or cabin areas where the backside of the fabric will be visible in normal operation.  Red oxide tinted Poly-Brush will be shipped unless un-tinted is specified.  Coverage:  Approx. 150 square feet per gallon.  Shelf Life:  Guaranteed four years unopened in protected storage.  Avoid long-range storage above 100 degrees.  Not affected by freezing.  Available in one quart and one gallon cans.

Poly-Spray  A high solids, one part aluminum pigmented, air drying coating used to protect the fabric from ultraviolet damage and as a sanding base to develop a smooth finish.  Reduce 4 to 1 with Poly-Fiber Reducer.  Coverage:  Approx. 200 square feet per gallon.  Shelf Life:  Guaranteed four years unopened in protected storage.  Avoid long range storage above 100 degrees.  Not affected by freezing.  Available in one quart and one gallon cans.

Reducers

A blend of solvents used for viscosity and drying control of Poly-Brush, Poly-Spray and Poly-Tone.

Poly-Fiber Reducer R 65-75
  Recommended for use in temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees.  Poly-Fiber Reducer RR 8500  Recommended for use in temperatures above 85 degrees to produce the proper coating flow out and, when needed, to avoid blush in warm, humid weather.  Shelf Life:  Infinite, unopened in protected storage.  Not affected by freezing.  Available in one quart and one gallon cans.

Poly-Tone Finishes

A durable one part, air drying flexible coating available in 50 popular aircraft colors. Color Chart  Poly-Tone is manufactured from the same generic class of petrochemical feed stock as Poly-Tak, Poly-Brush and Poly-Spray, and is considered to be our "standard" pigmented finish for the Poly-Fiber covering process.  The thermo-expansion and elasticity are the same as all sub-coats, and there is no inter-coat adhesion problem if the surface is clean.  Poly-Tone is non shrinking, non bleeding, fire retardant, chemical resistant, and is used on both metal and fabric.  It air dries to a satin gloss finish and can be polished to a high luster equal in appearance to any cellulose dope, lacquer, or synthetic enamel finish.  Instructions  Shelf Life:  Guaranteed four years unopened in protected storage.  Avoid long range storage above 100 degrees.  Not affected by freezing.  Available in one quart and one gallon cans.

UV Flattener

Flattener  Used to reduce the gloss of Poly-Tone, Aero-Thane and Enamel paints.  In Poly-Tone, used only to flatten to full military flat.  In Aero-Thane and Enamel, used to either decrease the gloss to match Poly-Tone, or to go all the way to full military flat.  Flattener is in liquid form.  Mix and shake thoroughly before use.  Shelf Life:  Two years unopened.  After prolonged storage, blade us solids in bottom and put on a paint shaker for five minutes.  Available in one pint and one quart cans.

Rejuvenator

A proprietary formula containing the correct proportions of the same plasticizers used in the Poly-Fiber coatings with penetrating solvents to carry the plasticizers into the old coating and restore the original flexibility.  Coverage:  Approx. 300 square feet per gallon.  Shelf Life:  Guaranteed four years unopened in protected storage.  Avoid long range storage above 100 degrees.  Not affected by freezing.  Available in one quart and one gallon cans.

Aero-Thane

A tough, flexible, solvent-, chemical-, abrasion- and weather- resistant high gloss two part polyurethane (1 part U-865 Catalyst to 3 parts Aero-Thane).  Color Chart  Recommended as the best quality fabric finish over Poly-Fiber covering materials, and all primed metal and glass fiber composite components on fabric covered aircraft.  Also recommended to refinish suitably rejuvenated nitrate and butyrate dope coated aircraft fabric surfaces, all old sound finishes on metal and glass fiber aircraft components, old finishes on glass fiber or metal boat hulls, automotive, truck and industrial equipment.  Abbreviated Instructions  Shelf Life:  Guaranteed shelf life unopened in protected storage at room temperature for four years from the manufacture date.  Avoid long range storage above 100 degrees.  Not affected by freezing.  Coverage:  Approx. 1 gallon of catalyzed Aero-Thane will cover 225 square feet one coat.  Available in one quart and one gallon cans.
