Default PRECISION AEROBATICS & Aerocoat coverings?

Has anyone ever heard of Precision Aerobatics covering material?
http://www.atlantahobby.com/shopexd.asp?id=5890
OR Precision Aerobatics Katana MD Covering? http://www.atlantahobby.com/shopexd.asp?id=6764

Can they be used on trainers? 1/2A scale? Or only aerobatic sport planes like the name implies? I want to try something besides Ultracoat, so does anyone have any info on this product?

Also can someone provide links to where I can purchase Aerokote covering?

Found it, thank you bruce.

About 40 colors Aerokote
About 32 colors Aerokote Lite.

Any opinions on how this product is?
And about the Precision Aerobatics?

Never used any of it.

Sig doesn't usually get involved with bad stuff though. Class act there. No idea how well/easy it applies.

I'm currently reviewing a Sig plane that is covered with Aerocoat. It pretty much behaves like Ultracoat or Monokote. If I had to choose one of those two I would say that it was closer to Ultracoat.

I've used the Aerokote Lite a time or two. It's got a fairly dull finish (at least int he colors I used) but is otherwise a good covering. It's definitely low heat though. Too hot of an iron or heat gun and it will burn through. Even if it doesn't burn through, you can curl up an edge that will never lay flat again. As long as you are aware and keep the heat reasonable, it works just fine.
