Default Trying Monokote for the first time...

Covered a few planes with Ultracote and now covering for the first time with Monokote. Definitely different beasts. The Monokote seems to be more elastic than the Ultracote and have a bit of a plastic smell to it(open a fresh roll and take a whiff). Seems more elastic when heating / shrinking as well and a bit more glossy than UC. The color seems to separate easier from the film than with UC... think some of the metallic platinum color was absorbed by the balsa when heated? Needs a higher temp to activate the adhesive. Not bad overall... just new to me.

Any other Ultracote users had a similar experience?

I am looking forward to using this for graphics and applying with Windex.
