Oratex Success Stories

Dan Dufault's Glacier Cub

We're happy when our customers are happy. And boy, are builders Dan Dufault and Bobby Breeden happy. Here's what they told us:

From Dan:

Hi Lars,

We finished 324GC a few weeks ago and wanted to let you know how much I liked the Oratex product. I have been covering planes for thirty years with Ceconite and Stits processes. The Oratex process is radically different. No applying chemical coats and no toxic fumes. The Oratex cement that attaches the fabric is extremely strong. It took time for me to get used to applying the surface tapes with heat and pressure from what I had been used to, but overall the process was clean and relatively simple. Painting the Oratex fabric with oracolor worked well also. The black we used covers in just two coats!

Thanks Lars.

From Bobby:

As a pilot I am always looking for the lightest and best option for performance and durability. That is why I chose Oratex fabric for my experimental Super Cub. Theirs is the best product I have found that withstands the rocks, mud and elements out in the Alaskan bush. Thank you for helping us out with the new plane.
