The characteristics of the flat MonoKote differ slightly from standared MonoKote covering:
- Flat MonoKote requires higher temperatures to apply than standard MonoKote because of the flat finish.
- In addition to the higher temp settings, this covering may require the iron to be in contact with the covering and wood slightly longer than the standard finish.
- If this covering is applied too loosely, it may be difficult to get a tight shrink with this product.
- Also, when applied loosely, it could become impossible to remove any wrinkles that may appear.
