We recommend using the Superbase primer sold at Homedepot.com on virgin concrete, modified bitumen, rubber, asphalt, shingles, etc. You do mot need the Superbase primer when applying Sunshield direct to metal or previously painted or sealed surfaces with good adhesion. Yes when applying Sunshield on virgin concrete the Superbase primer will fill the cracks and seal the surface so that you spread rate / yield stays consistent at 95 square feet per gallon when applied at 17wet mils (10 dry mils). Otherwise the spread rate will decrease if applied on virgin concrete without the Superbase primer or sealing the concrete prior to applying Sunshield. If the virgin concrete is sealed or primed with another product other than Superbase, then realize that Sunshield’s adheshion to the surface will be dependent on the adhesive ability of the alternative primer or sealer.
Because Sunshield if scrubbed in an abrasive rough way when cleaning, you could remove Sunshield. I say this because the application you mentioned is on a table where it most likely would be cleaned daily.
Yes Sunshield will keep the surface cool very easily, however, there could be an issue with abrasive washing of the table once Sunshield has been applied.
95 square feet per gallon.
We are able to tint Sunshield to earth tone colors. Sunshield is a high solid coating with only 12% added water,so in order to change the color of Sunshield a lot of dye must be added which decreases the performance of Sunshield. The darker Sunshield is tinted the performance decrease. We have a color chart which shows what colors Sunshield can be tinted and the associated performance impact. If you would like to receive the color chart for Sunshield, email email@example.com and we will respond as soon as possible.

Yes but it must be tinted at our factory. Sunshield has only about 12% added water and the rest is solid material, so in order to change colors, a lot of dye must be used. This will significantly decrease performance. If further help is needed, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
No. Sunshield is designed to face the sun. When applied at the proper thickness and facing the sun, Sunshield will prevent solar heat loading.
No. Sunshield is most effective when it faces the sun. It blocks 95% of the sun’s heat from loading. The roof is the largest surface area of your house that faces the sun and it is here where most of the heat gain takes place. Many clients paint the roof with Sunshield and the remainder with regular paint.
