SUNSHIELD

5 Gal. Radiant Barrier for Roofs and Exteriors

$ 297 00 /pail

Overview

SUNSHIELD is a flexible water- based high-performance coating solution that prevents and blocks solar heat from loading when used on any external surface / application where solar heat loading is a problem. Once painted with Sunshield, the external surface will be physically cool to the touch and at an ambient surface temperature, regardless of how hot it is outside or the type of surface that Sunshield has been applied to. Even on a bare metal roof, when Sunshield is used, if it is 85F outside, then the surface temperature of the metal will be 85F with Sunshield, rather than 160F without Sunshield. SUNSHIELD will greatly reduce the expansion and contraction on a roof that causes leaks. It also prevents corrosion and surface deterioration. SUNSHIELD will not peel, crack or lose of adhesion. SUNSHIELD is more than just a white reflective coating as it does not allow external surfaces to load with heat. SUNSHIELD resist dirt, mold, mildew and pollution to increase longevity and reduce surface maintenance. SUNSHIELD is a durable USDA approved, energy star green coating. 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. SUNSHIELD contains 4 unique ceramic materials that are designed to block and prevent 95% of solar heat from ever loading.

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,

Does it make a metal roof much quieter? I have a composite aluminum panel roof (sheets of aluminum sandwiching a 4-inch Styrofoam core) that is extremely loud during rain storms. So mainly I'm looking for a way to deaden sound. (The heat reduction would be nice too, as the panels warp/bow upwards on hot sunny days.)
Asked by: JeffL
WELL JEFF I'M REVISING MY ANSWER TO YOU . THE DISTANCE FROM MY ROOF TO THE INSIDE IS ONLY 5 INCHES AND I STILL HEAR THE RAIN SO IT MAY DAMPEN SOME BUT NOT ENOUGH TO JUSTIFY THE COST . BIG BUT . MY INTERIOR ON THE CATHEDRAL CEILING WAS OVER 90 DEGREES SHOT WITH A LAZIER TEMP GUN . NOW IT IS THE SAME TEMP AS MY WALLS . IT STOPS THE HEAT IN ITS TRACKS . AND LIKE THE OTHER GENTLEMAN SAID , YOUR SCREWS WILL NOT GET LOOSE CAUSING YOUR ROOF TO LEAK . I SUSPECT THAT A LEAKY ROOF THAT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED COULD BE COATED AND NOT REPLACED TO MAKE IT LIKE NEW . ALSO ON A HOT DAY THE METAL WOULD SHIFT SO MUCH THAT IT SOUNDED LIKE SOMEONE WALKING ON THE ROOF . NO NOISE NOW , WHICH MEANS NO MORE SHIFTING , WHICH ALSO MEANS IT IS NOT GETTING HOT . THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH WORDS TO DESCRIBE HOW BLOWN AWAY I WAS BY THIS PRODUCT .

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)

5 Gal. Radiant Barrier for Roofs and Exteriors is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exellent for my application. The back side of my two story house faces west. The lower half is block with stucco applied. The upper half is wood siding. (50 yrs. old) The stucco area got so hot, that you could not touch it. I applied 2 coats of this product and the difference is AMAZING! The temperature is 85-95 degrees and the stucco is barely warm to the touch in the hottest part of the day. I am now working on the wood siding. (Got to replace some of it). Pricey, but well worth it. My AC is working much better and I'm only half done. My neighbor installed vinyl siding 3 years ago and it is warped and distorted on the back of his house, due to the heat. I hope it will last for a few years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from *DONT PURCHASE until you read review!* Final Results: House dropped from "Oven Temp" to bearable and the A/C wasn't running constantly. 20 Degree drop. This is drastic as Guam is extremely hot! Cost comparison: It paid for itself in 2.5 months. WHEW! From Michigan to Guam: We don't have extreme heat in Michigan so we had to do some extreme research to figure out how to lower the air conditioning cost while living in Guam. Winter averages 80-90 degrees. Summer is 85-110. We used about (5) 5 GAL drums of this magic on the flat roof. We applied multiple coats with a Ryobi Spray Painter. It did a decent job but be *WARNED*! THIS STUFF IS THICKKK! It's not recommended for sprayers but it can be done... We did it and I was highly pleased with the results. Rent the sprayer for $60.00 and call it a day! A FANTASTIC BUY!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Radiant Barrier Paint I used this paint to cover my exterior wall facing west to the sun. I gotta say the rooms actually feel cooler. I should recommend anyone who plans to paint block should use a thick primer first so that you can cover more easily. This paint is very thick and you should use a wide roller. The reviews helped me to decide if the investment was worth the risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product! Great product. We have a refinished attic with a flat roof that transfers an incredible amount of heat during hot summer days. It has separately zoned AC and a supplemental window unit but nothing really works during 95+ degree summer days. Sunshield has reduced the temp from 92-95 degrees room temp in late afternoon to 83-85. That's remarkable. Pretty easy to install, too, which my son and I did ourselves. You will need to use their sealer before applying the Sunshield. Still more than worth the cost and effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do This Before adding Insulation I have a Spanish style home built in 1927 that had no insulation. Everybody says insulate and save heating and cooling bills. I say do your research before you do what I did. HD came and sold me attic insulation and they blew in R40 everywhere and higher values in places. Before I had it blown but after I signed a contract to have it done I found out about this product. I have a flat roof, live in sun soaked So CAl and I painted two 5 gallon buckets on my roof. It immediately dropped the attic temp at least 20 degrees and inside the house almost 12. At night the house would cool to just above outside temp. Then I get the attic blown and guess what. The house would cool better as long as we ran AC but at night the house was hotter. I hadn't painted the entire roof and bought more. I just finished painting a second coat and one on the garage. Now the house is cooler, in fact temps dropped 2 degrees when we painted the roof and the AC now cycles. The garage dropped 10. If I had it to do over, I'd only paint the roof. and add maybe R19 max in the attic. Insulation holds heat. Sunshield BLOCKS heat. It's better to keep it out than remove it.

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 need to give thanks to Home Depot for selling this product and also the manufacturer for such a life saving product.
