DIATEX 1000 and bias 1500
cut cold, no fraying) Used for coverage or reinforcement. High deformability, for curves. Rolls of 100 m. Widths of 50, 75 and 100 mm.


Jaconas BA502 stitching reinforcement tape

Holds the ribs during covering and transmits a distributed load during deformation of the wing. Not affected by tensioning coatings, heat sources or humidity; it does not change the geometry of the frame.

Spool of
15 mm x 200 lm.

FI206 stitching thread

Extra flat braid, limiting the excess thickness at the passage. Breaking strength: 23 kg (Standard = 18.2). Coils of 260 g = 500 m (± 2%).

Thickness: 0.3 mm Width;: 0.9 mm.

Stitching needles

High strength stainless steel needles for efficient stitching.

Straight needles,
length of 20 to 40 cm.

Curved needles,
radius of 4 to 6 cm.

Drain orifices

For ventilation and evacuation of humidity, inside the wings.Cutouts in Diacov 1000
How to use procedure :
Remove the PE yellow protection. Place the cloth side on a hot iron (approx. 120° C), Place and press on the cloth to be glued. Then using a very hot 2 mm dia. round nail (gas heated), place it in the middle hole ; the heat will ²solder² the perimeter of the hole by melting the cloths and the PU glue.To be placed in the low points on both sides of the ribs.

In bags of 50 units.

Diameter: 3 cm + small 3 mm hole.

Reinforcing rings and inspection rings

Reinforcement ring
To be installed after the first layer of tension coating, adding a little coating to melt the ring into the fabric superficially.
We then recommend that you to finish the covering, tensioning, primer and paint completely without touching the inspection rings.
You will fly like this and cut out the inside the day you need to! ! ! Keep the aluminium covers.

Diameter 120 mm, aluminium with riveted and integrated spring hooks. To be installed after cutting the inside of the reinforcement ring during the first inspection of the structure.

Ring diameters: inside 90 mm
outside 120 mm
Thickness: 1 mm, butyl acetate.





The contact thermometer enables the user to check the temperature of the covering iron.
It works by contact, directly on the soleplate of the iron.
This tool serves to optimize the tension of the fabric to obtain a covering of quality.

Nowadays it is preferable to use the new digital covering iron which has a built-in thermometer and precise temperature control.


 Covering irons

This Digital covering iron allows very precise temperature control. The handle is comfortable and ergonomic, and its Teflon soleplate coating helps it to slide over the fabric.

It is perfect for all heat shrinkable fabrics.


Rotary foam sleeves : AXMANMOUFL10

10 cm in width for self-locking rolls.Usable with NITROCELLULOSE sealing compounds (glue, colorless and aluminum) ; they resist perfectly to their chemistry.
To be used only from the 3rd coat, in order to obtain a pretty surface condition, reducing sanding operations …

Self-locking rotary mountings :
For FLOQ foam rotary mountings of 10 cm in width. Steel armature and plastic handle, available in 2 lengths : 24 and 39 cm.
