TECH NOTE: The characteristics of the flat MonoKote differ slightly from standared MonoKote covering: Flat MonoKote requires higher temperatures to apply than standard MonoKote because of the flat finish. In addition to the higher temp settings, this covering may require the iron to be in contact with the covering and wood slightly longer than the standard finish. If this covering is applied too loosely, it may be difficult to get a tight shrink with this product. Also, when applied loosely, it could become impossible to remove any wrinkles that may appear.
