SUNSHIELD

5 Gal. Radiant Barrier for Roofs and Exteriors

$29700 /pail

Product Overview

SUNSHIELD is a water-borne combination of high-performance aliphatic urethanes, elastomeric acrylics and resin additives which produces a tough, yet flexible coating film. Designed for performance and durability, SUNSHIELD contains 4 unique ceramics to block up to 95% of solar heat entering a structure, due to visual light, ultra violet (UV) and infrared (IR). SUNSHIELD is a flexible membrane with low permeability that can greatly reduce expansion and contraction of a roof. It also prevents corrosion and surface deterioration. SUNSHIELD can withstand large temperature variances without peeling, cracking or loss of adhesion. SUNSHIELD is more than just a white reflective coating as it does not allow a substrate to load with heat, thus preventing conduction of heat into a structure. SUNSHIELD resist dirt, mold, mildew and pollution to increase longevity and reduce surface maintenance. SUNSHIELD is a green coating where low voc and durability is needed and is energy star approved and USDA approved for use in food preparation areas. SUNSHIELD provides a water tight barrier and has a sound dampening quality making a structure more comfortable. Coverage area: 100 sq. ft. per Gal. (9 meters Gal.) comes in five (5) Gal. pails.

Questions & Answers

Can this be painted over to match the rest of the house?

Can this be painted over to match the rest of the house? Or is it the white reflective color that assists in temperature reduction more than the 4 ceramics barrier? white is OK but I would love it if this reflective barrier still had the same success rate even if it was used as a primer. This is a great question however from the lack of response to the past questions, I suspect this site isn't maintained for responses. MK 9/14/15
Asked by: MK
Sunshield is designed to be the first layer of defense against solar heat loading. So painting over it would not be advisable. Sunshield has proprietary nano particles of specific ceramic material that blocks all 3 forms of solar light energy. Sunshield can be tinted to light pastel colors but will loose some of its ability as it is a high solid coating and will require a lot of dye to induce color, so the darker the tint, the more the nano material within the coating is tinted, which impacts performance. Performance wise, you will loose up to 30% on average when Sunshield is tinted to pastel colors. Most people only tint Sunshield for exterior side wall applications and as recommended, they do not tint Sunshield for the roof. Additionally, Sunshield has very little density and this is very important for performance. For example, a piece of paper when left outside will never be physically hot to the touch regardless of the ambient temperature or how long it has been in the sun, because the paper lack density. The proprietary material used in Sunshield is 50 times lighter than paper and thus Sunshield cannot load and hold solar heat (same as with paper), so the surface coated with Sunshield stays at an ambient surface temperature, even on bare metal, regardless of how hot it is outside. So if applying to a metal roof, for example, (metal will conduct heat extremely well) if it is 85F ambient temperature outside, then the surface temperature of the metal roof will be 85F or within a few degrees of 85F, if it is very humid, rather than a 160-180F surface temperature without Sunshield.. This means that less heat will load on the metal roof and thus, less heat is available to transfer inside of the building. Because Sunshield cannot load the solar heat, it is a proactive means of controlling solar heat loading,.allowing only 5% of the solar heat to load on the surface of the roof.. If buildings do not load with heat, then you do not need as much air conditioning to remove the hot air. Prevention is better than cure. Because only 5% of the solar heat loaded during the day, the air conditioner does not run all through the night.. Additionally, because the surface of the roof stays at an ambient temperature level when coated with Sunshield, Sunshield significantly prevents roof failure as a result of contractions and expansions, which occur when the roof has loaded with heat all day and then experiences an evening rain shower. Sunshield can be used on any roof surface type. When used on metal no primer is needed. No primer is required when used on concrete, but without the use of the primer, the spread rate will be reduced as the concrete is very dry. . When used on asphalt, rubber, modified bitumen, shingles, etc.. the Superbase primer sold at Homedepot.com is needed. Sunshield can be used in any application where solar heat loading is a problem, commercial and residential,

Can this be used to paint a rooftop ac unit? And will it cool it down to make a difference in how cool the air flow is?
Asked by: Linsname
Yes, Sunshield will prevent 95% of the solar heat from loading. It will also keep the coil cooler in the AC unit when you paint the AC unit. This will allow the AC to run more efficently.

I am thinking of applying this to my flat roof. There are areas where water ponds after rain. The water tends to dry up within hours after the rain ends. Is this product able to be applied where water ponds on a flat roof?
Asked by: PeterC
Yes, if you do not have ponding water that stays more than a few days. We provide a top coat called Sp Seal Coat that is used to protect Susnhield in areas of ponding. You would have to contact us direct to buy SP Seal Coat (770-594-0083)

I noticed my air conditioner cycles ON much less and that the house stays cooler throughout the hot parts of the day. Easy to apply - I used a 9 inch roller and it took one day (6 hours) each to cover 1,000 sq ft with the primer and then the next day I applied the SUNSHIELD. READ the spec sheet - manufacturer's specs for coverage are spot on.

I can put my hand up to the underside and hold it there now in the middle of the day. Before, it was too hot to touch. Very good product, even better when it's on sale. Get somebody who knows what they're doing to paint it on, it's thick.

I have never written a product review before but this product and the Radiant Barrier for Roofs and Exteriors truly warranted a review. I had a foam roof installed in my home and the roofers talked me into upgrading the top coat to what they claimed to be the best product available. After completion I noticed that the coat even though it was white it still got really hot during the summer moths. After about 18 months the top coat started to peel off exposing the foam. After legal dealing whit the roofing company I ended up being out of luck because they declared bankruptcy. I got estimates from several other roofing companies and they were extremely high so I decided to do it my self and chose these products. because of the degradation of the foam I applied a couple coats of the primer followed by the radiant barrier and it is amazing how well these products perform. the product is quiet cool to the touch and it has lowered the heat transfer into my house dramatically thus reducing my energy usage and cost. I highly recommend both products.
