Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigD Best bang for buck for people on limited budget...one coat!
Bought one 4.75 gallon pail and one 0.9 gallon can to coat a 12 x 70 mobile home roof. I ended up with approximately 1/2 gallon left. I used a flat 9.5 inch tampico fibers roofing/asphalt brush to brush it on the roof. Tampico fibers hold plenty of product, and there is no way I would roll this on. Brush it on, and that's the recommend way to do it. No need to use a three knot tampico fiber brush because I did not have that many vent pipes to coat around.
Used a 1/2 electric drill, and a mixing attachment to help get it mixed. Used a paddle too during the mixing because the attachment will ball up with aluminum, so just use the mixing paddle to scrape it off, and then mix it with the paddle some too. You can mix with just a paddle, but it will take longer to get it mixed good. It will look like liquid aluminum when mixed thoroughly.
The 555 only requires one coat. The white stuff requires two coats, so the Henry 555 will save a lot of money if you have to pinch pennies like I had to do. The 555 offers 53% initial reflectance, and I think it was 42% after three years. The 555 is listed on the Cool Roof Rating Council that tests these type of products. The Henry white stuff is rated at about 70% reflectance after three years. I think the 555 is a good bargain for the money spent albeit at a reduced sun reflectance.
It does produce a brilliant aluminum color, that looks really good on the roof. Neighbor was wanting to know what it was. The 555 is a better bargain than the cheaper aluminum roof coating. You do get what you pay for with the 555. Highly recommended for people on a limited budget!

I used this Henry Aluminum Coating to paint 100 feet of chain link fence. Although this product was designed for metal roofs it looks great on my fence and I am hoping it lasts at least 5 years.

I have been using this product for a long time it lasts longer than any other I tried lowes and several other ones . the price doubled when the price of aluminum went up and now that the price of aluminum went down the price stayed the same.

.Have used this paint for yrs. on OLD garage roofing...it covers all leaks...no more rain dripping into shop. YEAH. Would recommend for anyone needing this kind of coverage. Regular aluminum paint just doesn't work for this kind of application. You do need to get brush sold for use with this .( Most any long handle will do )
