    Styrospray 1000 Coating for pylon planes???

    Has anyone tried this product for pylon racing planes

    http://www.industrialpolymers.com/styrospray.html

    Similar product is sold by WOWplanes.com under the name of Liquid Sheeting.

    http://www.wowplanes.com/product_inf...roducts_id=130


    Its a coating that seems to provide a great finish even without having to fiberglass the surface and without adding much weight

    Iยดm thinking for example for Q500 balsa fuselages or for foam/balsa sheeted wings.

    Any experience would be appreciated.


    Description:

    + Liquid Sheeting is a coating that can be applied to foam and balsa sheeted model surfaces.
    + It is brushed on with a foam brush, and leaves a glossy, smooth, shell finish.
    + Cures in 1 hour to an almond color and can be painted with most paints and spray cans.
    + Eliminates sanding.
    + Working life is approx 30 minutes. But if kept sealed after mixing working time can be several hours.
    + Must be used at temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees and humidity above 35% for best results.
    + Storage life is about 6 months at normal room temperature.

    I've used it on a Q40 plug.. It works pretty well.. I haven't tried thinning it at all so I can't comment on that. I will say that I think it would be best if you used it over a glassed surface as I doubt it would add any significant strength on its own.

    Oddy, I bought some to try on a Q500, haven't finished the tails yet.

    I think it would work for 424 and maybe 426, but don't know that for fact.

    I do glass the insides of my fuses with Carbon veil, so I have some additional strength there as well.
