Fabric covering on aircraft requires heat tautening of the polyester fabric. If fabric is not exposed to enough heat, under-tautening can be an issue, but if it is exposed to heat in excess of 375° F, the fabric will be permanently damaged and will need to be removed and replaced. This is why using a high-quality iron, and not a clothes iron, is extremely important. This video describes what irons we recommend as well as how to properly use them.
