Oratex®: A Better Aircraft Fabric
Come see us at Booth #300 on the runway side of Hangar A, with a big tent. This year we will be covering a biplane at the show, last year we demo-worked on a Belite. Note that in EAA literature we are referred to by our company name BetterAircraftFabric

Proven Safe and Effective
Oratex is proven safe. It is certified in Europe and Canada, and many FAA STCs are now available in the USA. There are currently over 300 airplanes flying with Oratex (including a 5th place Reno-Racer and a Red Bull Master Class competitor). 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. Just glue it, shrink it, and fly!
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!
