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?

    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.

      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.

        Q:Can you paint over once it dried

        Answer This Question

        A:  Justin, you probably could paint the Henry 287 Solar-Flex White roof coating but that would completely defeat the purpose of applying it in the first place. Henry 287 is designed to be very reflective in order to protect the roof from the sun's harmful UV rays and to cool the interior of the structure. As a side note, most paints contain hardeners and are usually not elastomeric, which could result in crazing or cracking.
