Hi,
From what I have read on other forums this is suppose to the same or close to ChinaCoat from HKc.
Similar to Ultracote/Oracover regular stenght and not the lite.

If it's the same as the stuff from Hobby King run away FAST. I got rolls of white, black and bright silver from HK. The bright silver looked like brushed aluminum and I had high hopes for it. I was let down big time though. It has poor stick to edges and pulls away from the edge when shrunk. Probably the worst covering I've tried in 40 years. Now I have 45 feet of this garbage and I need to find a use for it. It won't be on R/C planes though. My advice is to stick with coverings like Solarfilm (my favorite) or Ultracote (my second favorite). Solite or it's many clones works fine for very lightweight airframes.

Yea i buy some cheap motors from value hobby and servos also for my smaller 30 inch foam planes but i dont think i would trust their covering or HKs either . Sometimes in this hobby you cant be cheap so when it comes to covering mine i spend for the tride and true stuff . joe

I covered this Byron Christen Eagle with the HK covering and it turned out very well as you can see. Goes on much like Ultracote and takes low heat for shrinking. Don't forget, this is an all foam plane.
