AeroKote is commercially available lightweight plastic shrink wrap film available in various colors. It has a heat-activated adhesive on one side and is used to cover the surfaces of a model aircraft. The material is cut to size and applied to the airframe surfaces using a hobby iron and heat gun. SIG brand AeroKote's superior shrink and adhesion make it an extremely easy plastic covering to apply. And once applied, its special adhesive gets a grip that not even years of accumulated exhaust residue can break. AeroKote is also one of the most puncture and scratch-resistant films on the market - qualities you'll find in all of the rich, vibrant colors available. AeroKote is a thin, clear, protective film with a pigmented, heat-activated adhesive on the back specially formulated for model airplanes. MonoKote is applied with a sealing iron. Heat from the iron shrinks the film while simultaneously activating the adhesive tightly bonding it to your model. When AeroKote is not heated, the adhesive is not sticky. The adhesive side has a clear, protective backing that must be removed before application.
