Safety is a must when handling any chemicals of any kind. But when spraying or using the Superflite System I products, we highly recommend wearing gloves, protective coveralls, and using a fresh air breathing unit.
Know how to organize your work area. It should have proper lighting, ventilation, and space. The next step is insuring that you have the Superflite tools and the general essentials for getting started.
Preparing the Frame
Once you have removed the old fabric from the airframe, inspected, cleaned, and repaired the airframe you will find in this category everything needed to prime the airframe, apply anti-chafe tape and inter-rib bracing cord.
Covering the Frame
Now that your aircraft frame has been approved for covering you are ready to attach the fabric to the structure, tighten the fabric (tautening), secure the fabric with rib stitching or other mechanical fasteners, apply finishing tape and patches and lastly install inspection rings and drain grommets.
Its time to protect and to add some life to your aircraft colour! Now you are ready to clean the fabric with superwash. Apply dacproofer to the fabric with a brush or a roller. After the dacproofer option two coats of 125 clear dope can be applied to help better fill the weave of the fabric. Then Spray with SpraFil (silver coat) spraying eliminates a lot of the sand work for you. To finish apply your coloured butyrate topcoat to fabric areas. If you wish to bring out more of a gloss in the tinted butyrate topcoat, use the 132 retarding thinner. Lastly apply trim colours and graphics.
