BUS-KOTE™ Bus & RV Roof Coating


Works on All Roofs for Buses, RV's and Trailers

BUS-KOTE™ is used to protect and waterproof the roofs of buses, motorhomes, recreational vehicles (RVs), and trailers. This product is designed to be applied to a wide range of roofing materials, including metal, fiberglass, rubber, PVC and DICOR Roofs as well as other types commonly used in the construction of these vehicles. BUS-KOTE™ is a high-performance RV roof coating that is specially formulated to withstand the harsh conditions that buses, RVs, and trailers are exposed to, including extreme temperatures, UV, moisture, and other environmental factors. It provides a durable, long-lasting protective barrier that helps to prevent leaks, rust, and other types of damage to the roof of these vehicles.

Reflects up to 95% of the Suns UV Rays

When BUS-KOTE™ is applied to a surface, it forms a protective layer that reflects much of the UV that would otherwise penetrate through to the surface. This can help to reduce the amount of damage caused by UV over time.

Formulated to Resist over 100 M.P.H. Wind Driven Rains

BUS-KOTE™ RV roof coating is a high-performance coating designed to provide superior protection against harsh weather conditions, such as rain, wind, and sun. This RV roof coating is made of high-quality materials that are specially selected for their durability and weather resistance. The ability to withstand wind-driven rains is an important feature for a coating designed for use on buses and other commercial vehicles that travel at high speeds. Wind-driven rain can be especially damaging to the exterior surfaces of vehicles, as it can penetrate small crevices and cause corrosion and other types of damage.

Bright White Reflectivity and Ceramic Insulation to Reduce Interior Temperatures

Bright White Reflectivity and Ceramic Insulation are characteristics that help to reduce the interior temperature of buses and other commercial vehicles. Bright White Reflectivity refers to the ability to reflect sunlight and other sources of heat away from the surface of the vehicle. This is achieved by using a bright white pigment in the coating that has high reflectivity properties. By reflecting the heat away from the surface, the interior of the bus or vehicle remains cooler, reducing the need for air conditioning and improving overall energy efficiency. Ceramic Insulation, on the other hand, is a technology that uses tiny ceramic particles in the coating to create a barrier between the exterior and interior of the vehicle. These particles help to block the transfer of heat from the outside to the inside, effectively insulating the interior of the vehicle from the external temperature. This insulation helps to keep the interior cooler and more comfortable, even in hot weather conditions.

Superior Elongation and Memory Resists Thermal Shock

Overall, the combination of superior elongation, memory, and resistance to thermal shock make BUS-KOTE™ an ideal choice for protecting most surfaces in harsh environments. Its ability to withstand temperature fluctuations and resist cracking or other types of damage helps to extend the life of the coated surface and ensure that it continues to function effectively for years to come.

Low V.O.C. & Environmentally Friendly Easy DIY Application and Water Clean up

V.O.C.’s are pollutants that can be emitted from certain types of coatings, and they can have negative effects on both human health and the environment. Low V.O.C. coatings are formulated with fewer of these chemicals, which can help reduce their impact. This type of coating is designed to be easy to apply without professional assistance. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who want to tackle small projects or repairs on their own, without having to hire a professional contractor. Water clean-up refers to the fact that this type of coating can be cleaned up with water instead of harsh chemicals. This makes it easier and safer to use, as well as better for the environment.
