Big Steve Posted December 18, 2007 Share Posted December 18, 2007 I learned a new trick about applying peel ply horizonatally. I am cutting my peelply off of a 60" roll after a 6-8 hour layup my epoxy is not very sticky and it is hard to hold the peelply on. It has a tendancy to fall to the ground get dust on it and make me want to say words that I should not say. So what i found that works is to take and dip my brush in epoxy and go down the area that need the peel ply. I put a nice wet dab about every foot. Right now I am doing my center section spar and I had to peel ply bothe sides of the bottom of the layup. after I have gone the entire length I just stick the peel ply on and it stays right there. Some of you were probably already doing this. It works great. One other tip do your second shear web layup on saw horses not your table it is to hard to lean over the spar and see what is happening on the other side. Also if you do this before you put your nose on your plane you can store it in a corner out of the way on the f22 here is a picture.
