I have applied a product called "REGENT HEATGUARD" purchased from a Trade Paint Supplier in Cairns. I put this on my fibreglass roof van and on my vehicle metal canopy. The difference this makes is that before the canopy roof would be very hot on the underside even though the top was painted white, and after the application of the HEATGUARD the underside was a lot cooler than before i.e. In full sun it was not previously possible to keep a hand on the underside for too long.

It also does a good job of helping with sealing any problem areas as it forms a thick, flexible skin when dried depending on the coats applied.

Cheers Kev.

Adverts I had seen in 4x4 mags listed a insulating paint from a n 'Australian Paint Company' in Brisbane that was claimed to be a better insulator than 4" (100mm) Koolite type material. I am still interested in doing our corrugated iron roof and trymdeck type roofs as it also has great sealing properties. Has been advertised for a long period of time,so some of you guys must have used it as they have to pay for the ads.
