Default Ultracote for Trim: Same as Monokote??

Can Ultracote be applied with Windex like Monokote for trim?
Thanks

No. The adhesives in Ultracoat are different than Monokote and will not be activated by the ammonia in the Windex.

I like to use Ultra for the main covering and Mono for the trim. When I use Ultra for the trim I just lay it on with low heat then use a trim iron around the edges, about 1/4 inch.
