210 Nitrate Dope is used to seal and shrink organic fabrics: Grade A Cotton, Irish Linen or silk and silkspan for model airplanes. It is not recommended for use on Ceconite or other synthetic polyester fabrics. Polyester fabrics are shrunk by the application of heat; applying tautening dope after heat shrinking can produce undue tightening of the fabric and deformation of underlying structure. NOTE: We recommend using only 9701 Butyrate Dope on Grade A Cotton or Linen, butyrate dope is superior in all ways to nitrate dope on organic fabrics. We offer nitrate only for model airplanes or exact antique restorations where service life is not important.
Packaging: Quarts, gallons
