Re: Which covering do you use?

I think to determine what film is better - is a very long topic to discuss because someone likes a melon, but another one - beer.
These are just some criteria

- Stickiness to surface or to the base film
- Bubbles under covering, when one color overlaps another
- Loosing tightness when temperature changes
- Royal paint color matching (Royal colors are standardized)
- Opaqueness of variety colors (white, yellow must be totally opaque if you put them on black base)
- Variety of transparent and semitransparent colors
- Overall appearance of covering on the aircraft
- Easy to work with
- Supporting products (trimming films, matching paint, trimming strips)
