Oracover - Cut to length

Oracover polyester heat shrink film, perhaps better known by the British name Profilm, is the covering of choice of the Czech ARTF kit producers, and all of the Reichard range is covered in Oracover.
Oracover Clear is a polyester covering that is quick and easy to apply, and provides considerable rigidity to a finished structure.

Apply by cutting a piece 25 to 50mmm oversize for the panel being covered. Lay the covering over the panel to be covered. Tack the covering to the frame using a covering iron set at only sufficient temperature to activate the heat activated adhesive on the back of the film. Once the film has been tacked around the frame, increase the temperature of the covering iron so that it is just sufficient to shrink the film and remove the wrinkles.

Compound curves can be covered by pulling the covering around the curve, and using the heated covering iron to work the covering down and around the curve.

Should there be a warp in a covered wing, gentle twist the wing panel in the desired direction, apply a warm iron over the entire area (until the wrinkles go smooth), and the wing will stay in it's new position until the twist is adjusted again using the same method.

Supplied per meter (Cut from a 10m roll - max length 10m - Width 24" (600mm).
