The advancement of technologies across all industries never seems to stop, and the RV roofing industry is no different. The roof is an essential defense against the elements, especially water. Without a good quality roof, you’re like going to require constant repairs and maintenance that will quickly add up over time. Not to mention the excessive repairs could be avoidable with something that is a higher quality.
Thanks to the ever evolving landscape of RV roofing and the creation of substances, a spray-on roofing system was developed. While it started out as a roofing system for buildings, structures, and even truck beds, its use was quickly extended for RV’s as well.
What Is Rhino Eco-Coat?
The Rhino Eco-Coat is a specially designed spray-on roofing system that was developed by Rhino Linings, a company that specializes in the creation of protective coatings that have a wide array of uses. This is achieved by using a plural component aluminized hybrid polyurea that is heated prior to application, and then coats the targeted roof. This probably sounds like some fancy scientific wording, so we’ll try to break it down for a basic understanding of what it is.
First, the term “plural component” simply refers to taking a handful of different materials and mixing them together to create the final product that is the Rhino Eco-Coat. However, the mixing process isn’t quite as easy as throwing it all into a bucket and giving the materials a good stir. In fact, all of the materials used are mixed together just prior to being applied to the surface that is being coated. This is because each material must be properly heated to correctly apply the roof coating. This also means that specialized equipment is required, so there aren’t going to be any DIY options for this. The other reason the materials are heated and mixed just prior to being applied is because even after being heated, the plural component roof coating dries very quickly.
