Orastick is a liquid form of the adhesive coated onto the back of Oralight and Orafilm covering film. It is useful for ensuring excellent adhesion to very porous or uneven surfaces.
When applying additional heat to remove wrinkles a common problem is that the glue no longer works well as the wood fibres originally adhered to have torn away from the piece being covered. Thus the glue layer can no longer stick the covering to the structure. If Orastick is used before covering the liquid adhesive soaks into wood, gluing loose wood fibres permanently to the surface. This prevents the fibres tearing off under stress and the covering coming loose, which is the usual cause of wrinkles and other problems.
To use brush a thin coat (just 20g/m2) of Orastick onto the wooden structure. Wait for it to dry - it is important to let the adhesive dry thoroughly before covering, to prevent incompletely evaporated solvents from gassing off during ironing, thereby causing bubbles. Then apply the Orafilm or Oralight covering as normal.
If the Orastick has dried out a bit you can restore the original viscosity by adding the Orastick Thinner product.
