        Q:Cure time
        by|Oct 20, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Nathan, Henry 287 Solar-Flex will cure in about 12 to 24 hours normally. However, the cure time can vary depending on the temperature and the humidity. Since it is a water based coating the higher the humidity the longer it will take to cure. Do not apply if the temperature is expected to dip below 50 degrees, (day or night) for 24 hours or if rain is expected within 12 hours.

            by|Oct 12, 2023
            1 Answer
            Answer This Question

            A:  Doug, none of our Henry roof coatings are designed to be applied directly to wood. Henry 287 should only be applied to normal roofing materials such as metal roofs, rolled roofs, recoating roofs or roofs coated with Henry 107 Asphalt Emulsion, acrylic or aluminum coatings.

              Q:I need a rubberized RV roof sealant !
              by|Oct 6, 2023
              1 Answer
              Answer This Question

              A:  Walter, Henry 287 Solar-Flex is not a rubberized roof sealant but is an acrylic roof coating that is primarily designed to reflect the sun's heat and damaging UV rays. For RVs the only coating we recommend is Henry 887 TropiCool 100% Silicone Roof Coating. Henry 887 is a moisture cure product that forms a chemical bond to the roof surface that is much stronger than the normal physical bond that acrylic coatings form. Henry 887 is waterproof, applied in only one coat and has a lifetime warranty.

                  Q:Can I use this as a Primer Over a Granulated Mod Biit Roof, and than Apply Two (2) Coats of an Acrylic Elastomeric over it. ??
                  by|Sep 21, 2023
                  1 Answer
                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Chris, Henry 287 is an acrylic Elastomeric coating product that normally doesn't need a primer. If you need to apply a primer you can coat the roof with Henry 107 Asphalt Emulsion and then apply two coats of an acrylic elastomeric coating. Just give the Henry 107 3 to 7 drying days prior to coating with an acrylic. The easiest method is to coat the roof with Henry 887 TropiCool 100% Silicone roof coating since you only have to apply one coat, it is waterproof and it has a lifetime warranty.
