latex dope
« on: April 03, 2011, 11:11:00 AM »
Was at Toledo Friday and Ontario Adhesives had a new product from Deluxe Materials a latex dope. It was stuck in customs so you could not get it. They said it worked great and they been using it in england. They did have Easy Coat that you put down fiber glass with that did a great job. It filled fast and was light. Has any one used these products.

It sounds like they do have some interesting products. Thanks for the tip. Here's the link to their site, FWIW. Maybe we'll be able to get their stuff down here eventually.  ??? Steve     http://www.ontarioadhesives.ca/

Horizon carries a product from Deluxe materials"  Eze Kote". It is a water based finishing for balsa and foam. Is this what you are talking about? Sounds like a solution to using dope,I might be able to finish a plane and NOT use ' cote.

easy cote was for putting down fiber glass, I want to try it on carbon tissue. The dope is for silk and silk span. They said if you put in a order and tell them you were at Teledo they will give you the show disscount. They said that you can use any paint over it, and that would be nice. I will call this week and order some and give it a try. They only had one bottle of the dope and said they whated to try it before they sold it.

My son runs his own piano restoration business.  I have seen him spray clear or black lacquer which is water-based!  It makes an outstanding finish!  I haven't had the guts to try it on a plane, but I'm thinking of borrowing a pint and trying it as a top coat for a 20 point shine!!  *(and I can spray the stuff indoors).

Well I paid $18.00 a quart for Brodak Clear at VSC.  I have used Min-Wax clear to put fiber glas and silk span down.   Went to link that was posted.   States be the first to give a review.  How can you give a review if it is out of stock? H^^

Yes that is the dope, They said that it filled faster did not need so many coats. The price is a little high but just like kas coat you do not need as much. They said it is lighter than reg dope. I think I will get some and do a test on how light and how many coats it takes.

Some competition, better strength of the dollar, and it might get much better. You did notice that the model plane was a stick and tissue free flight, right?

This stuff would look really cool on your next plane, Randy:  http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=DLMBD27   LL~  Ooops, a little late for April 1.   ;) Steve

Yeah Steve, I noticed the S&T model. But I'm thinking about some large OT gas jobs, and man, it'd have to be something REALLY special for me to buy enough to do even say and A gas job.

Randy, What got me thinking was when you showed me your free flight that was cleared with what I think was a nelson product.  It looked so good. could you go from start to finish with out any thinner. I work in a chemical foctory and had cancer about 11 years ago. I try to stay away for fumes as muck as possible. I still use dope, but this might be a little safer with this new stuff.
