Product Overview

Gardner Metal-X Metal Roof Acrylic Coating is a tough, white elastomeric roof coating that is formulated for exceptional bonding strength to metal roof surfaces. This high performance product also contains rust inhibitors, which provide long-term protection to metal surfaces. Metal-X expands and contracts with the roof's movement to resist cracking and peeling. The bright white finish keeps metal roofs cooler by an average of 50 degrees compared to uncoated metal, thus minimizing heat stress associated when metal roofs expand under the hot sun. Metal-X provides a protective barrier that reflects, seals, and protects from the elements. In turn, this provides a longer life to metal surfaces, helps to cool surfaces and will help reduce interior temperatures. This environmentally advanced formula helps reduce energy cooling demand, is low odor, and low VOC, making it a great choice for your metal roof. Covers approximately 50 sq. ft. - 75 sq. ft. per Gal. per coat depending on porosity of the surface.

Can this be sprayed on

Asked by 1960 March 12, 2018
6
Answers

Yes, I rolled the first coat on a corrugated metal roof which was pretty time consuming. I went to Home Depot to rent a sprayer for the 2nd coat and was told by the kid at the rental desk this product cant be sprayed with any of their rental equipment. After doing more research on my own I decided to go get the medium duty paint sprayer from another Home Depot location. Worked perfect and only took 30 minutes for an 18'x50' roof. Rolling it took over 3 hours.

Can you apply this product already on a roof that has rust on it?

Answers

Thanks for your interest in Sta-Kool 805 Metal-X. Rusty metal must be cleaned with a wire brush and primed with a rust inhibitive primer before application. Due to the limited information we have on your project, check out the Technical Data Sheet (TDS). You'll find it on the product page of homedepot.com, under Product Overview- look for Info & Guides and then click on the TDS link. All the best with your project!

You might be better off with a good acrylic paint. This has worked well on top of metal storage container and tin roof; however, I have not seen it applied for "under water" use.

We are putting in a metal kit sun room. Can this be applied to the metal roof before the roof is...

Asked by Kay June 18, 2019

Answers

Thanks for your question. In most cases, applying the coating before assembly is fine. Light touch ups can be accomplished after installation if needed. Just be sure that the metal kit manufacturer didn't factory coat it in a way that would inhibit adhesion. For best results, apply product in the morning hours on a warm clear day with plenty of sunshine so the product dries properly. Due to the limited information we have on your project, please read the Technical Data Sheet (TDS) for further product information, proper prep and application instructions. You'll find the TDS and helpful how-to videos on the individual product page of www.GardnerCoatings.com. We take great pride in helping you achieve a successful project so please feel free to reach out through the Contact Us page on our website should you have additional questions. Our employees and owners love to hear product feedback and hopefully your high marks, so please come back and share your experience! Sharing pictures is also very helpful to others and that is always appreciated too!

This is good stuff. I sprayed two coats on with a 0.021 nozzle on a Graco airless sprayer. Covered lots of screw holes in an old corrugated metal roof to stop several leaks. The temperature difference is very noticeable and a vast improvement. Now the only unknown is how long it will last.

Easy to roll on the roof of my horse trailer. I'm putting the recommended 4 coats on the roof. Supposed to lower the temperature of the inside of trailer. Looking forward to that. My 1996 sundowner did not leak but wanted to protect any future damage. This product claims to last 20 plus years with recommended number of coats. Love the bright white color.

The metal roof of our sunroom was quite rusty. The product overview stated Metal X contained rust inhibitors. From the advice of the staff at our local St Petersburg Home Depot, we ordered the product. The metal roof was cleaned and treated with Prep and Etch. We followed the application instructions and 2 coats of Metal X was painted on with a paint roller and brush. It looks great. The results were to our satisfaction and more.

good product and worked as advertised. Easy to apply and resulted in good coverage. Definitely needed 2 coats as recommended. Only negative is that it is only available in 5 gallon cans.

It covers well,but don't expect it too cover the specified amount of square feet,so either apply super thin or buy more than what the specs say you need.
