Oratex is a pre coloured aircraft covering system which is water based and solvent free
Oratex represents a major breakthrough in aircraft fabric covering systems. It is currently certified for use in Europe and Canada
Oratex comes ready to use with everything built in. It doesn’t need any sealer, any primer, any UV protection and no paint. In fact, it needs no coatings at all!
Oratex fabric comes in two varieties. Both fabrics are made from modified polyester, the difference is the weight and strength.
Oratex UL600 is for use on aircraft with a gross weight up to 600kg whilst Oratex 6000 can be used on aircraft that weigh as much as 6000kg.
Because both fabrics are extremely lightweight, builders of light aircraft often choose Oratex 6000 for the added strength and toughness because they still know they will save a significant amount of weight over more traditional systems.
Some colour options are available “with coating”. This coating is applied to the backside of the fabric and reduces the transparency as well as increasing the UV stability.
