Quick question on Isosport nylon topsheet material...

Post by RYM Experimentals »

I just got a Isosport nylon topsheet printed by Miller that's going on a deck soon. First time I've used this material. Question is do I need to flame it like Duravision before layup?

Thanks, -D

I have always flamed my nylon topsheets. I've never done it without, so I can't say I've had negative results, but there's no harm in doing a quick flame other than the time.

No. The white nylon from miller is a fleece back. Do not flame.

I should have clarified, I'm using the clear nylon.

Whenever I've gotten white nylon from Vince it hasn't been fleece backed, but it's been a couple of years.

Isosport stopped making textured back white nylon last year. Delam issues.
