Product Details

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 85°F outside, then the surface temperature of the metal will be 85°F with Sunshield, rather than 160°F 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 m Gal.) comes in 5 Gal. pails. SUNSHIELD contains 4 unique ceramic materials that are designed to block and prevent 95% of solar heat from ever loading.
  • More than just a reflective white coating - blocks solar heat gain resulting from visual light, ultra violet (UV) and infrared (IR) 5 Gal. pails
  • SUNSHIELD is a high performance ceramic compound
  • Shatters high air conditioning / cooling cost when applied to all roofs and exterior walls
  • SUNSHIELD is a green coating with exceptionally low voc (21 gram/liter)
  • Resistant to dirt, mold, mildew and pollution and has a 10 year life span
  • Excellent for roof and exterior wall applications; coverage: 100 sq. ft./Gal. (9 sq. m/Gal.)
  • USDA approved
  • Insulation for containers, transportation vehicles, refrigerated containers, reefer trucks, trailers/motor homes and railroad cars
  • Water-tight barrier and sound dampening capability
  • Used as a system over metal, concrete, modified bitumen, rubber, masonry and wood to stop heat gain, moisture penetration and corrosion development
  • Withstands large temperature variances without peeling, cracking or loss of adhesion

Q:Will applying this product to the exterior side of my metal roof, help with condensation on the inside?
by|Dec 28, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Yes, Sunshield has been used in this type of application many times before when condensation develops. Sunshield is able to provide an ambient or within a few degrees of ambient surface temperature (even on metal) regardless of how hot it is outside. Once dried the metal surface will be physically cool to the touch regardless of the external ambient temperature.

          EXPENSIVE I HOPE IT IS WORTH IT. GREG IS 5 STARS
          Greg, the Company Repesentive is a great repesentive for the Product. He clarified some things that are not exactly clear for both the Super Base, and SUNSHIELD. I live in Las Vegas, NV. Hopefully after $8,000. in product, it will pay off. Will not know for several months. I not only put it on my Roof, but I also added it to the Sides of my House. Over 100F every day now. Finished the Coating procedure middle of June 2022. .

            FANTASTIC! Almost miraculous!
            We painted the outside of a very large metal sliding garage door. See in the photos, temp reading on the inside of a section WITH this paint, another on a section of the door WITHOUT: Unbelievable difference.

              I got a call from the distributor to explain to me the proper way to clean my roof and then apply the primer and then the ceramic heat resistant paint. Gregg was very helpful ( and excited about their products ) and I spent a few weekends cleaning, priming and painting. Product works excellent and as described. My roof in Miami went from 165* degrees in the afternoon, to now be in the 80’s ( I think it will be even better as it cures, and I also may put on another coat which should make it even cooler as I have 1 bucket left soI may have put it on too thin. Don’t spend tens of thousands on a new roof and insulation… paint it !!

              It just simply WORKS!!!
              When we first bought the product, the price was concerning. Would the product work? How about company support? For us, this was a major investment into a product we knew nothing about. We were using it to coat the entire exterior surface of an old shipping container, which would house the entire contents of our home for about two years. We really needed a product that would keep the heat from doing damage to our furnishing and electronics. We took the leap and paid the price. We could not be happier. This product arrived timely and was as described and expected. AWESOME... it out performed beyond our expectations. You could touch the metal of the container and it would be so hot you could not keep your hands on the metal....YET....just inches away where we had already applied the product, it was cool (on the outside) and on the inside of the container, the metal felt like it had just been taken out of the refrigerator. Once we had the entire container completed, the inside felt like it was being air conditioned (outside temps over 80 degrees). We made the decision to apply two coats. One worked fine, but we found two was better. As for coverage, for us, the product covered way more footage than was advertised. Two 5-Gallon buckets covered an entire 40' High Cube container with two coats and almost half a second container with two coats. We had some concerns and questions about how we were applying it. We were always able to get right through to a human being at the manufacturer. We always got answers and assurances. They were wonderfully helpful. That is something special in these days and times or answering machines and never call backs. They were very helpful in all matters. Would I buy the product again? Yup, we already bought more and put it on other things, like the top of our 20 foot trailer. Was the price really worth the value of the product? ABSOLUTELY!!! Hands down, the value you get from the product is certainly worth the price. Advice: Before you purchase, give the guys at SPI a call and discuss what you plan to use the product for. They will give you guidance and talk about things you should be aware of. But, my best advice? If you have something that you want to reduce the heat build up on, run out and buy this product. It does exactly what they say it will do. We are HAPPY consumers of this product.

                Almost 4 coats on a 8x32 un-insulated race trailer, AC could not keep up in the summer, it was miserable inside. Hope it will better next season. My un-scientific test on a plain sheet of aluminum laid on the roof revealed a 10 degree difference on a 70 degree, sunny December day here in Alabama. Stuff is thick, stirred with a 1/2 drill and paddle mixer. Washed and scrubbed roof with TSP week one, then a week later put the first coat on, then a week later the remaining coats. Dried to touch pretty quick. Waited just over an hour between the other coats, otherwise would have been painting in the dark. Used a 1/2 nap roller.

                  EXCELLENT product. Does everything the manufacturer says it does! 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 used it for a flat roof in Downtown Manhattan over SBS. Excellent product but you need to use Super Base (sold at HD also) from the same company as a primer.

                      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.

                      It's a paste and goes on more like plaster with peeks and valleys and yes I did stir it up good. It might work great in certain situations but on my RV which I live in it hasn't helped cool it off any. I do understand that the heat permeates the trailer from many places other than the roof too so take that into consideration before buying.

                      Response from Spc HelpdeskAug 5, 2022
                      Countryboy, are you a competitor that is hoping to derail the awareness of Sunshield's incredible ability to minimize solar heat loading? I am asking this question because your rating of Sunshield's use on a RV is totally opposite of others who have used Sunshield on RVs. Sunshield has been sold by Home Depot for more than 10 years and only within the last 18 months have Sunshield all of a sudden received a couple of reviews similar to yours that says Sunshield does not work, when 95% of the previous user reviews say the opposite and that is that Sunshield is amazing and typically worthy of a 5-star review. There are many RV users who have given Sunshield a 5-star rating, so again, it very strange that somehow Sunshield does not work on your RV at all. Nevertheless, as usual, we are determined to make your experience with Sunshield a good one. Please reach out to us at Help@Spcinfo.com so that we can determine what went wrong with your experience.

                      By the way, Sunshield is not a paste at all, and Sunshield does not go on like plaster. Sunshield is spray applied or rolled on with an end finish similar to a painted surface. Sunshield is specifically applied at only 10 dry Mils (10 dry mils is about as thick as two business cards) and when applied at 10 dry mils Sunshield blocks the solar (sun) heat leaving the surface physically cool / cold to the touch, no matter how hot it is outside, as the majority of the reviews confirm over the last 10 years at Home Depot. So, to say it goes on like plaster implies that you did not follow the application instructions.

                      Sunshield, formulation wise, lacks the physical density to load heat from the sun very similar to a piece of paper's ability to load heat from the sun. If you were to go outside and pick up a piece of paper, the paper will always be physically cool to the touch and at an ambient temperature, no matter how hot it is outside, because paper lacks the physical density to load and hold heat from the sun. The nano proprietary components used in Sunshield's formula that are responsible for blocking heat from the sun are 50 times lighter than paper and thus Sunshield can no more load heat from the sun than a piece of paper, so your review obviously raise concern as to your motive. You can't have 95% of the users say that Sunshield performs as advertised and then a few that says it does not. Sunshield is part of a spray on insulation technology platform, borne from association with NASA. Sunshield is part of our spray on insulation technology platform that includes Sunshield on the lower end of the technology platform and Sunshield is made to handle sun heat. And on the higher end of our spray on insulation platform is our HPC technology that is used to insulate hot assets and hot processes up to 1200F. No other spray on insulation platform in the world (to date) has this range of performance and there is a reason why. So, when you say, Sunshield did not work at all, obviously we have to respond to this because this is simply not true or possible. Simple white paint will reflect some heat on any surface and Sunshield while being white is significantly more than simple white paint, given that Sunshield is part of a technology platform that insulates up to 1200F. Sunshield will continue to change the market by delivering clients a solution that keeps external surfaces physically cool / cold to the touch, no matter how hot it is outside.

                      We would welcome an opportunity to visit your RV (application site) for review and or to connect with you regarding your experience. Please reach out to Help@spcinfo.com and we will respond accordingly.
