Oratex: A Better Aircraft Fabric

Proven and certified in Europe and Canada, there are currently over 300 airplanes flying with Oratex, and many more are under construction. In addition, 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. Oratex represents a major breakthrough in aircraft fabric covering systems. No solvents, no paint, no stench, no exposure to toxic chemicals of any kind. [The Oratex System] is so benign you can even cover parts in your living room!

Easy to Apply

Other covering systems require many layers of special coatings, which can be extremely toxic. The application of these coatings requires skill and the purchase of expensive equipment. It is not unusual for 10 or more coats to be required, and between each coat comes the necessary and tedious sanding. In contrast, Oratex requires no coatings at all! Just glue it, shrink it, and you’re done. To see just how easy it is to cover your airplane, please refer to our [Application Instructions].

Proven Effective

Oratex is being used widely throughout Europe, and airplanes are now flying in North America as well. Currently there are over 100 airplanes flying with the Oratex fabric covering system, ranging from a record setting solar powered job to a 1000 horsepower Antonov AN2 biplane.

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.
