Default Kwik Cote?

I am getting ready to finish my ultra sport 60 and came across two rolls of this (Kwik Cote) in an old box of covering from an old modeler. I was thinking of using one of the rolls for some trim on my model but tried to look it up and cannot find anything about it. Does anybody know what the temperature rating is on it and if it would be suitable as a trim covering. At first glance I thought it was a roll of coverite 21st-century film but I found another role that had Kwik Cote written on the tape that keeps it from unrolling. It is not rolled up on cardboard tube but rather rolled up on a flat piece of cardboard about the diameter that a roll would be. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

Well it must be older then the oldest modelers here. I will give it a test on some scraps and see just how it behaves.

Not sure but I believe it was put out by Hobby Shack(Hobby People) many years ago. It is a low temp covering.

Thanks yankee. It feels pretty stretchy, kind of a rubbery feel.

Kwik cote, flight kote, tower kote and a few others were all the same with different stickers. They were a lot like Econo-kote. Low temp, stretchy works well on foam. The stuff I had sagged a lot in the sun.

Buzz.
