The new CoolCoat Insulating Coating uses advanced MicroCells technology to reduce heat transfer from the RV roof to the RV interior.
Tests show that this new ceramic coating can reduce the interior temperature by as much as 29 percent from the roof temperature. The temperature reducing coating material is a new alternative to the popular acrylic coating that RVers have used for years in Dicor’s Two-Part Coating System for EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) roofs. Dicor Products says it is critical to prepare the roof with the cleaner/activator (Sku 32150) before applying either coating (second part) to ensure maximum coating adhesion.
CoolCoat contains MicroCells, whichare nano-sized spheres, inside of which a vacuum has been created, which helps to dramatically slow heat flux — the rate of heat transfer from one surface to another. In this case, the heat transfer is from the RV’s exterior roofing surface to the RV’s interior surfaces, from where the heat can radiate into the RV. Using such vacuum-filled spheres is similar to the way a Thermos works in keeping liquids hot and cold for an extended period of time.
When CoolCoat cures, the MicroCells become tightly packed and help create a tough coating that reflects and dissipates heat by minimizing heat flux. This allows everything under the roof to stay cooler, longer — thereby reducing the load on air conditioning and saving energy. The durability and longevity of the EPDM coating is also improved. As with the other parts of the coating system, CoolCoat Insulating Coating is easy to apply and dries quickly.
Like Dicor’s EPDM Roof Acrylic Coating, CoolCoat extends the life and beauty of rubber roof membranes in forming a protective barrier with superior resistance to harsh weather and ultraviolet light.
