Aircraft Covering Materials - Solarfilm SoLite

You may have heard that Solarfilm are closing down. The owners wish to retire and there is no-one to take over the business. We have good stock of all colours but, once these are gone, there will be no more.

'Solid' colours are only slightly heavier. Weights include colour and adhesive. Also available in clear.
