Hey guys found this on the web. Thought everyone might like to see it for reference. It lists the low, average, and highest weights for just about every type of covering there is.

Re: Covering Weights

The homefly site is a bundle of good info if you look around it. I have some of the Risteen Microlite. Quite good on rubber power planes and small outdoor electrics. Just think if you used it to cover something the size of Trevs monster. Let see..about 70gm/meter sq and he probably needs around 8 sq meters. 70*8 =560 gms. Not practical to use it but gets you thinking
