Default Super Coverite

Since I like to paint my aircraft, and coverite is no longer available. What do you guys and gals use instead of coverite? I hope it's not silk and dope. I'm talking about non-glassed sheeted wings.

Thanks,

I use 21st century fabric. It comes painted, goes on easy, looks great, stronger than film. can be painted, striped or what ever you want. Follow the instructions to the letter, and do the temp. test.

ps. Im sure some trouble maker will dispute this but, I dont care if no one else on the planet uses it. It is simply the best!

bignasdy I agree. I have been useing Century 21st for years and have had no problems. Their paint is a pretty close match also.

I believe they took it off the market for a while to reformuilate the adhesive. I was working on a project for our LHS owner and he asked if I thought the amount he had would be enough because of temporarily being off the market. It is available again now though.

Sig Koverall is similar to Coverite, except you dope it on, and then need several coats of dope to fill the weave. But for sheeted wings as you mentioned, .6 oz. glass cloth is hard to beat, applied with the Pacer Laminating Resin, or with nitrate dope. A second option is silkspan and nitrate dope....gives a nice flat hard finish ready for primer at a minimum of cost.
