• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Anyone used this?


I was talking to my buddy today, an accomplished builder of many planes, and he likes to use this for coating steel frames. He says it brushes on, but brush marks virtually merge into a smooth finish, is poly tack and MEK resistant. It doesn't like UV rays, but it would be covered by fabric anyways, and it will accept a top coat for those areas which will be exposed....

The appeal of this, is that it brushes on - much easier to apply than all those over-spray problems with spray paint...
