A durable semi-gloss, 1-part, air drying flexible paint available in over 50 popular aircraft colors. Recommended as the standard finish for the Poly-Fiber cover process. Also may be used over suitably primed metal components of fabric covered aircraft. Fabric damage is more easily repaired when Poly-Tone finish is used. All pigments are non-bleeding or fading. Will not oxidize with age. Poly-Tone is always thinned 4 to 1with Poly Fiber Reducer (65-75 or 8500).
Note: All mixed paints are special order and are non-returnable.
Good stuff. My only complaint is how long shipping takes. I live in Florida and my paint came from Georgia. It took over two weeks with everything in stock. And this goes for everything that I order from Aircraft Spruce. Not complaining about parts just the shipping.
Did not match my federal yellow color.
Prompt delivery. When we saw how thin the Daytona White was we sprayed it right out of the can, and it worked fine. We were repairing a 20 year old finish that was faded, but we mixed the Daytona, 50/50 with Insignia white and the repair matched the faded original perfectly. We got lucky. Weve always used Poly Fiber stuff and we like it just fine.
Shipment come in a timely manner. My only comment is that even though the poly-brush poly-spray and poly-tone cans are very well packed, many come through with big dents in the cans. The dents in the sides are really not a problem but when dented on the lid rims make them hard to reclose and shake reliably. Other than that, Great jpob in all other areas.
Good color, sprays on like water so plan on several thin coats to get good coverage. By the time you follow the whole system (Poly-prime, brush, spray) you should be ready for the poly-tone and to the first reviewer, there is a color chart if you look for it. Color seemed pretty close from chart on computer to sprayed on.
love the product
I painted the wings on my ercoupe using poly-tone. I thinned it 1 part reducer to 4 parts paint. It would have been impossible to spray this on the field w/o an act of Congress so I brushed it on using a 3 inch 10$ brush. 3 coats each wing surface required two quarts. OAT 67 degrees climbing to 85 degrees and direct sunlight. No problem at all and it really turned out fantastic. Do not try and roll rather stick with the best quality 3 brush you can find. Cheaper brushes will shed bristles and you dont want to deal with that annoyance.
not much good unless you can see the color
