Ekonokote problems

Has anyone had problems with Ekonokote recently? I bought a role and after putting it on it's like rubber. Yes the backing is off.

I compared it to some previous E-Kote I had and it was very different. For one it was thicker and heavier. Secondly when you tore it it would stretch like rubber before breaking with a rough edge. The other stuff I had tears clean.

Even the guy at the LHS was stumped because every role he had on the shelf was like that, we checked.

All the econokote that I have used for the last year has been stretchy. It even says in the instructions that it is not to be used where the covering is to add strength to the frame. I usually use it over sheeted surfaces like 'iron-on-paint'.

I use econocote over foam wings because of its' low temperature shrink. I just econocoted a Zagi and it worked great.
