Abstract : The invention concerns a prime coat of thermoplastic release material that is applied to the metallic or thermosetting resin surface of an airplane or radome prior to coating the surface with an outer coat of thermosetting, resin-based paint. The thus interposed thermoplastic layer is useful in that it and the outer, thermosetting resin-based paint may be easily removed, at a later time, by the steps of (a) applying heat until the thermoplastic release material softens and (b) scraping or sanding.
