Re: Coating ripstop with silicone?
- I wouldn't bother with a spray gun or roller. The key with sil
coating is to work it into the weave of the fabric, not use it as a
second layer on top of the fabric as you might with urethane. I've
had luck applying first with rubber gloves and a regular sponge and
then working it in/evening it out/removing the excess with a semi-
flexible squeegee - fabric laid out against a hard, smooth surface.
