Very good product I use it for building 1/4 scale models rc. Very few places left that supply dope. I will purchase more of it in the future. I have been building models since I was a kid I am 65 now still going strong love your product.

Q: Can this be put over Randolph clear nitrate I thought butyrate was more fuel proof but Im getting a lot of pitting and adhesion problems almost like it’s attacking the nitrate

If this is for a model, yes. If it is for a full size aircraft do not use 9701, use the non-tautening version.
