Covering an Ultralight

I've watched a bunch of the video on youtube for the stewart system and I think I want to try it.  Will this glue work on all fabrics?  Will this glue have any ill effects on styrofoam?  I'm planning on making rib and want to make sure they will not be effected by the glue or uv coating.  Thanks in advance

EkoBond is designed for use with all polyester dacron type fabrics and none of our products will effect foam. We have many ultralight builders using our products.

Thanks Jason,
Can you tell me what the thread count is on the superflite 1.8 fabric

I have no idea, I'd recommend you call Molly at Superflight. She's very helpful. The FAA does not regulate light weight fabric anymore so there is no required standard.

OK, i've covered the bottom of my first wing with great results.  I've done the first shrink at 250.  ribs are installed and i'm ready to cover top.  I'm using the uncertified dacron, what is the temp I need to use for the final shrink?

250-275 should be plenty tight for your project
