At 200 degrees F the adhesive on ParkLite becomes active, allowing the covering to be attached to the model. While 200 degrees F will fully bond the to the model, it is well below the temperature that causes ParkLite to shrink. This is exactly what's needed when first attaching covering to the model to prevent the covering from distorting.
Shrink Onset temperature - 280 degrees F
At 280 degree F ParkLite begins to shrink. This is called the shrink onset point. After the covering is attached using an iron set to 200 degrees F, the next step is to shrink the covering. This initial shrinking is done with the iron set at 280 degrees F.
Maximum Shrinkage Temperature - 350 degrees F
At 350 degrees F, ParkLite reaches it's maximum shrinking point. Raising the temperature above this will not cause it to shrink more.
This covering is not suitable for foam models because of the high shrinkage temperature.
Please read the instructions included with each roll of ParkLite for the complete application instructions and pro-user tips.
