There is no R value to any radiant barrier paint some companies claim an R value or an equivalent R value We Make No Such Claims. What we do claim is that we will meet or beat any other paint additive on the market and our test show that we are within one or two degrees of aluminum foil radiant barriers.
The more you use, the more you’ll raise your thermostat in the summer. With your attic and some walls you can expect 3 to 5 degrees savings in the summer. In the winter you’ll lower your thermostat about 3 to 5 degrees
Heatshield-R20 is compatible with all Interior and Exterior paints: Water base, Oil base, Urethane, Epoxy, etc.
You should get about the same coverage as your paint without Heatshield-r20 but will go on thicker.
One or more coats of paint to achieve about 4 to 5 mills in thickness. Where coatings are expose to harsh elements we suggest a prime or tack coat of untreated paint before coating with Heatshield-R20 ( to increase adhesion)
Yes! But Heatshield-R20 is always more effective as a top coat. For the best energy efficiency use Heatshield-R20 inside & outside but either application alone will give increased energy efficiency.
4 oz. for one gallon of paint.
You will get close to the normal coverage of the paint your using but will apply a little thicker.
You can figure approx. 300 square feet per gallon for most house paints at less than 5 cents per sq. ft cost, approx. 200 sq. ft. per gallon for attics and in elastomeric roof coatings generally cover a minimum of 100 sq. ft. per gal.
There will be a slight more texture. Sheen will drop 1 gloss level. As in any additive this could effect your paint properties. If in doubt, always run test sample.
White is always the color of choice, the lighter the color the better the performance.Darker color paints may lighten with Heatshield-R20.
Yes: Heat travels to cold! The heat inside is trying to escape to the cold outside air. Heatshield-R20 on your interior walls and ceilings will help stop this outward heat loss.
Heatshield-R20 will reduce heat travel and moisture in the heat that is trying to escape through the outer cold surface and will reduce condensation on your roof underside.
Yes: Remove all filters from your spray equipment (as they filter out Heatshield-R20 and use a slightly larger tip than
normal .017 .019. Elastomeric Coatings Require .028 to .032It is always recommended to filter paint before use.
Heatshield-R20 applied to underside of roof decking will reduce heat gain in your building & will lower the surface temperature of insulation making it more efficient in controlling heat gain. This is probable the best single area to use Heatshield-R20.
Great USE for those left over paints
When completed it should have an even appearance with very minimal shadowing of the roof decking we recommend that all rafters be coated and the upright supports coated about 1 foot down from roof decking,
as these all conduct and hold heat.Attics are very dry and absorbent and in most cases require two coats.
No, but always apply your paint to a clean dry surface.
Yes but always run a test for adhesion
With a Mohs 7 * hardness and spherical shape contribute to increase hardness and burnish/abrasion resistance of the finished surface.
* Talc = 1 Mohs Steel= 5 to 8.5 Mohs Diamond = 10 Mohs
Fastener backout is the biggest cause of metal roof leaks.
Thermal shock caused by temperature change results in metal roof panels to expand & contract. Holes elongate around the fasteners & back out. Also, UV’s deteriorate washers, they dry out and crumble away leaving space under the fasteners.
Instant high tack, with a full bond in 24 hours.
They are not effected by UV’s as they are reflected by the aluminum surface.
A clean dry surface.
TSP or any good harsh detergent. For small areas any quick drying solvent that leaves no residue such as Acetone.
No. Just seal the hole with a Seal & reuse the old fastener if usable, placing it as close to the original position that is not damaged.
They will work on all roof fasteners. Always remove loose fasteners & reuse if possible.
They should last the life of the roof. They have been on the market for over 10 years with no failures. Should one occur, they will be replaced at no charge.
No, but they will accept most any paint to match any surface.
Yes, but they require the surface to be clean. Apply sufficient pressure to dispel all water. Seals will stick to most clean flat surfaces. Always test before permanent application.
Apply Seam Tape, centered over seam.
It has been tested for water immersion with no delamination after 360 days.
