Oratex: A Better Aircraft Fabric

Oratex represents a major breakthrough in aircraft fabric covering systems. No solvents, no paint, no stench, no exposure to toxic chemicals of any kind. Just glue it, shrink it, and fly!

Proven Effective

Proven and certified in Europe and Canada, there are currently over 300 airplanes flying with Oratex, and many more are under construction. Three European manufacturers have chosen to use Oratex exclusively, including on an aerobatic version of the Sherwood Ranger. Having been tested extensively in Alaska, Oratex is now available throughout North America.

Easy and Fun to Apply

Covering an airplane used to be a long and involved process. Oratex is different. The builder doesn't need to apply any coatings at all. Just glue it, shrink it, and you’re done!

Covering with Oratex is fun!

Covering with the legacy systems is nasty! Prolonged exposure to dangerous chemicals and hours of tedious sanding, always working with a respirator and protective clothing.

With Oratex you move quickly from one finished component to the next, and in about 100 hours you are done!

I was simply amazed at how simple and quick the fabric went on. In two days we had both wings covered and flying, minus the tapes. I love the fact that it seems so simple to patch. Something that would really come in handy in places like Africa where fabric knowledge is limited and matching paints is a big challenge.
