SILVER FILM is a single component, liquid applied, bright aluminum solar reflective coating that will maintain its reflective qualities for many years. It is a high solids, thermoplastic resin based product that maintains superior adhesion to most metals as well as asphaltic, or coal tar pitch roofs. SILVER FILM is highly effective for either pitched or flat surfaces where ponded water conditions occur.

SILVER FILM is significantly different to other aluminum colored roof coatings. It contains no asphalt, no fillers and uses high quality automotive grade flake pigment. At 3.5 pounds of aluminum metal flake per gallon it produces a layer of protective metal composite that can provide 7 to 10 years of protection in a single coat.


Outstanding Features:

  • Reflects 73% of solar heat and protects substrate against rust, corrosion, UV damage and acid rain
  • Helps reduce energy costs by providing both solar reflection and radiant heat reflection.
  • Easy to apply straight out of the container by brush, roller or airless spray
  • May be applied over rusted and corroded metals
  • Single component, solvent-based formula allows for application in a wide temperature range
  • Reduces the intensity of roof deck expansion and contraction cycles
  • Protects metals with corrosion-inhibiting ingredients
  • May be used on vertical, pitched and horizontal surfaces and withstands ponding water
  • Remains tough at low temperatures and will not flow at high temperatures
  • Will not re-emulsify or wash away with rainwater
  • Can easily be recoated
  • Five year material warranty


Various Uses:

Can be used over BUR, rubber, steel, aluminum, previously painted surfaces and others.





Surfaces to be coated must be clean, dry and free of loose debris, oils, grease and other substances that would interfere with proper bond. Metals should be washed thoroughly to remove flaking rust and salts. All repairs should be completed prior to the application of the SILVER FILM.

SILVER FILM is applied directly out of the can after 2 minutes of low speed stirring or mixing. Apply the product using a brush, roller, or spray technique at a rate of 350 to 380 square feet per gallon in one single coat. Tools may be cleaned after use with mineral spirits.


Clean up:

Clean tools and equipment with Mineral Spirits.



Do not apply to wet or frozen surfaces. Surface must remain at least 5°F above Dew Point during the application and curing process. Store out of direct sunlight and away from open flames or other ignition sources. Keep containers tightly sealed when not in use. Shelf life is 24 months when stored in unopened containers.
