      Q:Is this ok for slide outs as well as roofs?
      by|Jan 19, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Arizonajazz, from your comments we assume that you are planning to coat the roof as well as the sliders of a motorhome or RV. The only roof coating that we recommend for motorhomes, trailers and RVs is Henry 887 TropiCool 100% Silicone because of it's particular bonding characteristics. Henry 887 forms a chemical bond that is much stronger than the physical bond that acrylic coatings such as Solar-Flex form. The stronger bond is needed due to the extra stresses that a moving roof encounters that stationary roofs don't have to deal with. Henry 887 is also waterproof whereas most of the acrylic coatings are not.

        Q:Will this product stop condisation on the underside of a metal roof?
        by|Jan 8, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Dave, Henry 287 will NOT stop condensation from forming on the underside of a metal roof. Condensation forms when warm moist air comes in contact with a cold object like cold metal. The way to prevent condensation is to insulate the cold metal from coming in contact with the warm moist air.

            Q:Is this good to use on a rubber roof
            by|Dec 14, 2023
            1 Answer
            Answer This Question

            A:  Bligh, Henry 287 Solar-Flex is not recommended for use over a rubber membrane roof such as EPDM. Most acrylic coatings will not adhere to a rubber membrane. You can use Henry 887 TropiCool 100% Silicone on a rubber roof as long as the roof is aged and has been cleaned.

              by|Dec 6, 2023

              Answer This Question

              A:  Frank, you can coat over an aluminum roof coating as long a the aluminum has had a year or so to weather and gas off the solvents in the product. Since this is the first coating of an acrylic coating you will need to apply two coats of Henry 287.

                Answer This Question

                A:  Young, by asphalt do you mean a flood coat of a tar like product or do you mean asphalt roll roofing? The part that looks like sand, is it the granules that have come loose?

                  A:  Duffy, your roof should be lightly pressure washed or with a hose that has a strong spray nozzle prior to the application of any coating. In order to get a good bond the roof must be clean and dry.

                    Q:How does it take to dry for the next coat

                    1 Answer
                    Answer This Question

                    A:  Mario, usually you can apply the second coat after the first coat feels dry to the touch. The drying times are affected by humidity and temperature. Low humidity and high temperature will significantly speed up the curing process.
