1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  William, Henry 287 is not rated for water containment or for catchment systems. Henry 287 is a water based acrylic roof coating but we have no information on how runoff would affect fish. The only product that we have that is rated for rainwater catchment systems is Henry 887 TropiCool 100% Silicone roof coating.

    A:  Help, Henry 287 is made for flat roofs to repair or to seal cracks, splits, seams, etc. It should not be used on shingles. If you have leaks use Henry 208R or Henry 209XR to seal the leaks.

        Answer This Question

        A:  Carly, all of our acrylic white coatings have a service temperature of -40 to 180 degrees. Snow should not be a problem provided it just sits on the roof and is not scraped off.

          Q:What size adapter reducer to use on drain to fit a garden hose
          by|Jul 27, 2023

          Answer This Question

          A:  Kings, here is what I was able to find out from out tech. support group regarding totes of Henry 287 Solar-Flex. Our IBC containers use the standard 2” threaded buttress fittings, and the most commonly used system would be a threaded 2” buttress adapter with a cam-and-groove fitting. I don’t doubt that there’s a reducer available somewhere that could be used to reduce to a garden hose size, but I’ve not actually seen one. There is also a valve which can be used to control the flow.

            Q:Can it be used on rv rubber roof
            by|Jul 25, 2023
            1 Answer
            Answer This Question

            A:  James, we do not recommend the application of an acrylic roof coating to a rubber RV roof. Acrylics often have a hard time sticking to a rubber roof. The only product that we recommend for RV roofs is Henry 887 TropiCool 100% Silicone because of it's great bonding characteristics. Henry 887 forms a chemical bond that is incredibly strong, much stronger than the normal physical bond formed by acrylc coatings.
