Kool seal patch and coat roof paint

So I was waiting for the wife today in walmart, I found some Black roof paint for 15 bucks a gallon. Uv protector built in, supposed to hold up for 5 years on a roof before there is any chance of cracking etc from the sun and weather. Says to clean up any rust, primer and roll it on for a metal application. Appears to have a fairly smooth appearance, and to be kinda rubbery.

I would think that this would hold up well inside the tub, If it can withstand 5 years of non stop weather and sun, it should be able to take the light abuse that the inside of my jeep takes for far longer than 5 years.

What are your thoughts? Not really trying to get away from a bed liner type of interior, just trying hard to convince my self that it is really worth the extra money compared to this stuff.

Well that is my Walmart idea of the day, let me know how stupid of a idea it is.

Don't know how it would wear conpaired to the bed liner compounds. Roofs do not have to withstand any abrasion, they are walked on rarely. Bedliners are designed for pickup truck beds with a lot of physical abuse.

Have you ever felt this type of paint once its dry? Its a very thick rubbery consistency, Similar to some of the stuff people patch cracks in there driveway with, which is one of the main reasons I thought about it.

Try it out on a small area then see. As for bedliner, im not impressed with it at all. I did my bumpers and rockers with bedliner and its chipping and flaking off.

Cool seal would not be good because it has metal flake to reflect light, so that prob wouldn't be good on your tub. And as for rubberized roof patch there is not much that is worth a crap. I work on commercial buildings and school's fixing roof leaks and we have tried just about everything on the market and nothing works as it says.

So metal flake in paint can go on the out side, but roof paint with flake cant go on the tub? I'm perplexed. Out side of the metal flake, what about it specifically do you think will not lend it self well to doing the tub of a jeep?

I keep thinking about it, and it sounds perfect, cheap, easy application, uv blockers in it, smoothish texture, easy to repair if I do happen to scar it up. Keep in mind that I don't haul around rocks or steel with my Jeep. So its not going to get beat up on a daily basis...


Keep the responses coming

If your talking about the cool seal that you put on mobile homes then the metal flake will reflect the heat and light back on you and passengers. It's not like a mirror or anything but if I remember correctly then when it's first applied its supposed to to reflect 40% or 60% of the light. Climb up on a mobile home that has been cool sealed and sit there for a little while and you will know what I mean, it's brutal in the summer.

There are two types, a white and a black, i was going to go with black and and i don't recall it saying anything about reflecting light, perhaps that's the white kind?

Must be cause what I'm thinking about comes in only white and silver and is specifically made for aluminum roof. Now the rubberized roof patch will fade and chalk up over time and will usually start to crack trust me I know, working on some today. But it usually takes a year or two. I have seen some rubberized undercoating made for vehicles and I didn't like it either, I used it on the bed rails of my old truck and it never did cure out completely. It was made for inner fenders and stuff like that.

I get what you saying, now how do you think it would affect the longevity of the kool seal if it was under a hard top 80% of the time. I live in Maine, so i only get to go once or twice a week or so in the summer.

I'm not sure. I honestly would just spend the little extra cash and do a bed liner. It's a time tested and proven thing when done right.

Worked very well for me. Did it on my plastic fenders 8 months ago and looks like new.
