RV Insulate – Roof Protection

California Desert Heat

This customer was having challenges keeping his RV cool in the summer.  His A/C would run all day which increases his electric bill and was hard on the A/C unit.  His response after the product was installed.  I can sleep without sweating and the RV Cools much easier.

RV Insulate – Roof Protection

10 Year old Damon A Class Motorhome

We wanted to see how the RV Insulate would perform and test the actual temperature drop.  It was about 97 degrees that day when the sun was out.  What we learned is after the first coat of product there was very little difference in the temperature between the untreated and treated, but with the 2nd coat we saw 20 to 28 degrees difference between the two.

Testing Product over Hot Lamp in a Box

We wanted to see how the product would perform when pushed to the limits.  The box has a large heat lamp in it, with 1/2 of the inside of the box having standard insulation and 1/2 with RV Insulate.  One the top is a metal sheet with part coated with 2 coats of RV Insulate and the rest is bare metal.

See what happens when it gets up to 250 degrees.

Top of Motorhome Class A

This Motorhome had a white roof so we wanted to see the difference to see how the product would perform. This is a second test of the Damon Motorhome.  Seemed like most couldn’t believe the difference until they saw it with their own eyes.

Application

Step 1: Wash the Roof

Use a bristle brush with water and simple green or a water-based Degreaser.  Per instructions on bottle for mixture ratios.

DO NOT USE ANY SOLVENT BASED CLEANERS, DISHWASHING SOAP OR ANY CAR WASH SOAPS.  THIS WILL AFFECT THE ADHESION OF ROOF PRODUCT.

Step 2: Cut in the Edges

Once you have washed the roof and it has dried. You can use a paint brush to cut in the edges and coat the chalking.

Using the tape is optional to prevent product from getting on painted surfaces.

If product accidently gets on areas you did not intend, use a wet/damp rag to wipe away when it is still wet.

Step 3: Apply the First Coat

We call this the primer coat.  Apply a thin coat of product to the roof surface.

Allow the product to dry before applying 2nd coat.  Usually 30 to 45 minutes.

DO NOT APPLY WHEN RAINING UNLESS UNDER COVER UNTIL FULLY DRIED.  IN A HARD RAIN THE PRODUCT WILL RUN OFF THE TOP.

Step 4: Apply the Second Coat

Pour a generous amount of product in an area.

Use you roller to spread the product evenly on the surface.

Using you roller with a light upward pressure, pull the roller toward you in one direction to get a consistent look and texture.

DO NOT APPLY WHEN RAINING UNLESS UNDER COVER UNTIL FULLY DRIED.  IN A HARD RAIN THE PRODUCT WILL RUN OFF THE TOP.
