Best method to remove old EconoKote film?
Not exactly sure where this post will get the best results, so I am posting it a few places for best saturation...
Like the subject says, I am looking for the best way to remove some old Econokote from a skinned wing. I am pretty sure this film is the low temp variety.
I want to remove this stuff, it is old and saggy. I plan to glass the skins and need to get all the old stuff off. I started to just pull it back and the clear part of the film started to separate leaving the color stuck to the skin, so I tried briefly to apply heat but it did not seem to help.
From what I remember using Econocote back in the 80's, was I never used it on a surface that would want to recover.
Cheap and works great on compound surfaces.
I mostly used in on slope ships, as they did not have much life anyway.
Best to peal and prick off as much as possible then light sand to remove the film. The color usually bonds in the wood.
Recover with a solid color film.
