Worldtex vs Coverite

I've only ever used Monokote. Thinking about trying out one of these. What are your thoughts, good and bad, on Worldtex and Coverite? Thanks....

I believe that Worldtex is an older product and does not have the shine that Super Coverite has . Worldtex is harder to shrink I have heard but better to accept doping so is mostly used in large scale and WW1 applications.

If you've never used Worldtex, you're in for a treat. In my opinion its the best covering material on the market today. The real name is Solartex.....made in Great Britain I think, and sold under the names of Worldtex and Colorfab......all the same stuff. It is very forgiving, it will form around very tight curves and the finished look is perfect for any fabric covered aircraft......A very scale-like finish. It is lighter than Super Coverite and easier to use. Check out my can see it on my new Brown B2 at the bottom of the "Sportplanes" page. Good luck.
