COMMENTS

-The CoverLite Adhesive is not yet available at the time of writing.

Preparation before using CoverLite Covering:
Fill all cracks and hollows. Sand all parts to be covered to
remove bumps or unevenness which would show through the covering.
Wipe away all sanding residues. There are two methods of applying
CoverLite, depending on whether the part being covered is an open
framework or is a solid surface, such as sheet balsa.
Method #1, Open Framework:
With a small piece of plastic sponge apply a very thin coat of
CoverLite Adhesive or Balsarite to the framework. Pay particular
attention to the outer edges (leading and trailing edges are
longerons). Areas of sheet balsa should be coated all over. Allow
the CoverLite Adhesive or Balsarite to dry (15-30 minutes). Cut a
panel of CoverLite at least 1" (25mm) larger all around the frame-
work to be covered and lay the CoverLite on the framework. Set
your iron between 195-212F (90-100C) and tack the Coverlite in
place at a few points around the edges, using the toe of the iron.
While tacking, gently pull the CoverLite to get a smooth fit
without wrinkles. Do not try to get the CoverLite drum tight, just
smooth and wrinkle-free. Reheating and peeling back while hot
allows the CoverLite to be repositioned. Then seal the Coverlite
all around the edges of the frame with the iron. Trim excess from
around the edge with a sharp blade and reseal the deges. Where
panels of CoverLite meet and overlap, the overlap has to be coated
with CoverLite Adhesive or Balsarite (and dried).
so it can be ironed down. It is best to apply this CoverLite
Adhesive or Balsarite with a fine brush BEFORE trimming away the
excess CoverLite.
Method #2, Solid Surfaces:
Solid surfaces such as sheet balsa, ply and veneer. With a scrap
of moistened plastic sponge, apply a thin coat of CoverLite
Adhesive or Balsarite all over the surface to be covered. Cut a
panel of CoverLite oversize and tape it down on a smooth surface
and apply a very thin coat of CoverLite Adhesive or Balsarite.
Allow to dry. Place the coated side of the CoverLite onto the
coated surface and iron down with a cool iron (about 195F, 90C).
Start at the center and iron outward toward the edges to avoid
trapping air under the CoverLite. If the CoverLite wrinkles around
the iron, lower the iron temperature. CoverLite can be contoured
around slight double curves by heating and gently pulling.
For large area of double curvature, it is easiest to cut the
CoverLite into "fingers" which are ironed down in succession.
