Help!

Old Ultracoat


Bought 70 rolls of Ultracoat at an estate sell for $50. I guess it got hot in this guys workshop or maybe because its old. When I peel the backing off the color stays on the backing leaving me with a clear piece of covering. Anybody got any tricks I can try?
Thanks

hmmm I have never heard of that before. In fact.. i had some old rolls and the paper backing separated from the plastic. If the coloring and heat activated glue stuff defused from the actual plasticized sheet., i would say it's shot. The plastic would probably make a good covering when building on the plan.

Ok I found a fix. I wrapped the roll in aluminum foil. Set the oven on 170 degrees as low as it would go. Put a cookie sheet on the bottom rack to diffuse the heat. Placed foil wrapped Ultracoat on top rack. Baked for 20 minutes turned oven off , let cool for another 20 minutes took out opened foil. Unrolled Ultracoat no color stuck to the backing. Appears to work very well.
Thanks

Additionally all the glue is gone. I tried some Balsarite and some Aqua Net hair spray they worked ok on surfaces but when I have to overlap on a seam or edge nothing seems to work. Anybody ave any suggestions for reapplying some type of substance to replace the glue for overlaps. I sure would like to find a way to use this as I have so many rolls.
Thanks
