Default TWist 40 covering

I have a twist 40 just finished and need to tighten up the covering . Is this coverite and if so what heat setting should I use ? On open sections do I use heat gun or iron with cover on it? Please help if possible and thank you for your consideration.

It is Ultracote or the same as Oracover

You can use a gun but sometimes I use the iron

If you use the heat gun be careful around the edges. I use a piece of card stock to shield the edges so they don't loosen with the heat. Other than that it shrinks up nice and tight, If you need to shrink it up around the edges use either a trim iron (my favorite) or a covering iron with a sock on it.
