Default Source of bulk Peel-ply

As Wayne Hicks recommended....

http://www.airtechintl.com

They have peel-ply available in 60" x 25yd rolls...

Ordered a roll of Econo-Ply J.. cost was 47.25 before shipping. $1.89/yd.. sure beats the $3+/yd that Wicks and AS&S wants.

I ordered it on Monday, and it was here by Wednesday.

Steve, is it bulk material or are you just buying shower curtain liners from the bath section?

I had bought some material from walmart that worked great however when it ran out I couldn't remember the kind of material I had. So today I ended up with 50% poly and 50% rayon, it doesn't work the material is to weak and doesn't release very well.

its bulk, same spot you find cloth, i find it all ready cut form 5 y to 20y
i go in before 1100 pm or they can't prize it.
just look for very small weave then give it a good pull, it must not stretch or tear

i bought many materials that seemed right, a couple were not and caused us GREAT big problems, like 9 hours to remove stuck peel ply on a turtle back

wrinkles that left a very poor surface.

I will never sub it again and try to save money that way, cost me too much saving a few bucks

Really liked the zebra stuff - it bled in the epoxy and left my bird striped , does not seem to have affected strength

Default Peel Ply gone wrong

I bought some polyester from Walmart also and applied it to a layup.

I guess it cannot be considered peel-ply if it doesn't peel. It is more like "permanent ply". I could not lift an end off to get the peel going. It kept on breaking off in small pieces. I tried sanding it, but it comes off in strands, creating lots of dust and fibers. I could not see whether I was sanding cloth or glass.

I guess the lesson here is not to save a buck at all cost. Redoing the layup will cost me (marginally) more than just paying for the right stuff.

It wasn't polyester, G., dispite what the clerk said (Dacron is one trade name for polyester). There are several of those fabrics that look and feel alike. You gotta check the label. Just wanted to clarify that point.
