    Q:how long to dry
    by|Aug 10, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Great question, Roger! Surface and air temperatures must be a minimum of 45°F and rising. DO NOT apply if heavy dew or rain is expected within 24-48 hours. Apply on clear, sunny day in morning hours with a professional airless paint sprayer or a 3/4” nap exterior paint roller. First, apply one coat over all seams and joints. Allow to cure for one hour or until dry, then apply two (2) uniform coats over entire surface, avoiding excessive rolling. Two full coats across the entire surface are needed for proper results. Apply second coat perpendicular to first coat. Allow at least 24 hours between coats and 24-48 hours for full curing. You can find the TDS and helpful how-to videos on the individual product page of www.gardnercoatings.com. Or you can contact our customer service at 1-800-237-1155 to discuss the project details.

          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.

          Great results
          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 easy to use
          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.

          Metal X coating worked very well. It made a big difference on my metal patio cover. Typically during a hot Texas day, the heat from the metal would feel like getting hit with blast from an oven when you first open it. Application was easy enough after power washing the surface. I used a 4 inch roller with a 3/4 inch nap and also an extension handle. The only issue I had is that I couldn’t apply the second coat the next day because of forecasted rain. I had to wait until I had at least 24 hours of dry weather. I had to wait for a few days but better safe than sorry. Overall I’m very pleased with the quality of the coating and the final results.
