Brief History of Fabric Covering : In the early 1900’s builders used finely woven organic fabrics to cover air-frames. They began to experiment adding oil coatings and varnishes to the fabrics that had been compromised from the weather and elements. The safest mixture was a system combining butyrate dope and nitrate dope which protected the fabric from dirt, adhere to the tubes and reduced flammability. The fabric covering system was not complete with out protection from sun radiation. By adding aluminum solids to the system, builders were able to prevent UV damage.
