Jaconas strip BA502

Allows holding the ribs during canvas mounting and transmitting a load distributed during wing deformations. Insensitive to tension sealing compounds, heat sources, humidity, it cannot change the geometrics of the ribs.

Spool of
15 mm x 200 lm.

Rib lacing cord FI206

Extra flat breading, limiting extra thickness at passage.

Ultimate tensile strength : 23 kg
(Standard = 18,2).
Spools of 260 g = 500 m ( ± 2 %).

Thickness : 0.3 mm Width : 0.9 mm.

Stitching needles

High resistance stainless steel needles for an effective stitching.

length of 20 to 40 cm.

Curved needles,
radius of 4 to 6 cm.

Evacuation holes

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.

sachets de 50 unités.

Diamètre : 3 cm + petit trou de 3 mm

Inspection trapdoor reinforcement ring and cover

Reinforcement ring
To be posed after the first tension sealing compound coat is applied, by adding a little sealing compound to superficially ²melt² the ring into the cloth.
We recommend then completely finishing the canvas mounting, applying the tension sealing compounds, and primary and finish paints without touch-ups to the trapdoors. You’ll fly like this and cut inside the day you need to do so ! ! ! Be sure to save the aluminum covers.

120 mm diameter, made of aluminum, with riveted and integrated pad spring. To be installed after cutting the inside of the reinforcement spring during the first inspection of the structure.

Ring with inner diameter
= 90 mm
Outer diameter
= 120 mm
Thickness : 1 mm,
in Butyl acetate.


iron thermometer

The contact thermometer allows checking the canvas mounting iron’s temperature.It operates directly in contact on the iron base.
This indispensable tool allows optimizing the cloth’s tension to obtain a high-quality canvas mounting .

 Canvas mounting iron

This new canvas mounting iron is more ergonomic, with digital temperature providing precise
control which makes the covering procedure for thermo-shrinkable fabrics easier.
This material includes safety metal stand and iron sock.

Polyurethane protection strips

To protect your leading edges against rain, insects, sand, snow, hail, gravels... These 3M products are designed to protect the leading edges of aircraft, as well as other exposed parts. They prevent impacts and deteriorations due to rain, insects, sand, snow, hail and most particles liable to be encountered. They constitute the most effective way to assure an extremely resistant protection.
Resistant to abrasion, U.V. radiation, and do not change the color of paints.

The product must be applied to a clean metal part, or any paints covering a canvas surface, or metal elements. The surface must be shiny, and equal or better than that obtained by sanding with a no. 400 sandpaper.
It should not have any dirty or greasy particles on it.
If applied to new paint, it is necessary to wait approximately 96 hours at 20° C so that the solvents are totally evaporated before being installed.
Warning : This coating is a permanent coating. It glues very firmly to the paint. Trying to remove it could cause a pulling out of paint. However, it is possible to remove it by pulling slowly on an edge at an angle of 160° / 180° with respect to the surface. Adhesive residues may be removed by using a solvent.
Ref. 86 cannot be used on airplane propellers, helicopter rotors, deicing parts, or other sections on
which unlamination could cause a problem. Width :152.4 mm. Ref. 85 is used mainly on leading edges of
propellers. width 25.4 mm.


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.

Touch-up bottles : AXFLACRET30V

For Polyurethanne paints, with STAINLESS STEEL ball incorporated plus thin clamp plug. With a 30 ml content, they will allow you after separately setting your airplane’s paint and its catalyzer aside to prepare your mixture for paint touch-ups on your aircraft.
