Default Oratex vs Solartex

BUSA is now listing Oratex as their covering material. Can anyone who has used both offer a detailed comparison?
Perhaps a ray of hope (or is it leftovers)? A sample packet of Solartex is still being offered. It says "all colors" but does not give the size of the samples. Might be a good source of small repair materials.

Received several informative replies on RCScalebuilder: https://www.rcscalebuilder.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=29171&TPN=1&get=last#658909

Two
products essentially the same except that Oratex is a little heavier and requires a bit more heat. Works the same with less wrinkling in the hot sun.
