Q:Can this product be dyed tan in color?

1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Eric, Henry 287 cannot be tinted. However, we do make Henry 288 Solar-Flex Desert Tan which can be special ordered at the pro-desk in any Home Depot. Henry 288 should be just the product you are looking for.

    Q:Will this work on an RV roof?
    by|Feb 19, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  James, the only roof coating that we recommend for RVs, trailers, campers and motorhomes is Henry TropiCool 100% Silicone roof coating. The roofs of RVs experience additional stresses that a normal roof does not, such as excess movement, wind peel and wind lift. Because of these stresses the coating must create a very strong bond. Henry 887 forms a chemical bond to the roof as opposed to the weaker physical type bond that acrylic coatings do. I guess that is the long winded way of saying that Henry 287 should not be used to coat the roof of an RV.

      Q:On a bare metal roof do I need to use a primer before applying this?
      by|Feb 17, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Mike, traditionally no primer is needed for the application of Henry acrylic white roof coatings. You can apply a base coat of Henry 107 Asphalt Emulsion Sealer and Damp-proofer at the rate of 3 to 4 gallons per 100 square feet. The emulsion coat must be fully cured before applying the Henry 287, usually 3 to 7 good drying days.

        Q:Can it be applied with an air sprayer
        by|Feb 16, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  RayRayxray2, you can spray Henry 287 Solar-Flex. You will need a rig that can produce 1,000 to 1,500 PSI and spray one to two gallons per minute. You will need a .030 to a .040 tip for the spray gun.

          Not worth my time or money
          After a couple of weeks, the paint eroded off in San Francisco rains. Save yourself the hassle of recleaning, and use silicone sealer paint.

            Mary-Please keep in mind this coating is NOT intended to stop leaks. The white acrylic roof coatings are for reflectivity purposes only. Thank you for putting your trust in the Henry Company and The Home Depot.

            Works as Advertised!
            I have central air in my mobile home, but the air conditioner couldn't cool the inside to a temperature that was cooler than the outdoor temperature without running continuously. I applied Henry's 287 to the roof of my mobile home today and for the first time this summer, the inside of my mobile home is cooler than the outside temperature! My air conditioner is running much less and the mobile home stays cool. Only time will tell if the product will last the advertised 7 years, but at this point, i have no reason to doubt that claim. Had I known this product worked, I probably would've used Henry's 887, which has a lifetime warranty.

              Waste of money
              24 hrs after application, not expecting rain, but it did rain and most of the product just ran off the roof, down the gutter and all over my driveway. White paint everywhere. It was dry to the touch last night and back to liquid state again today. It was applied to clean almost flat asphalt roll roofing, as per directions Not impressed and not sure what to do now.

              Looks nice, should save on utility bill
              After just a little practice, it applies easily and looks very nice on our double wide mobile home. Well worth the work
