Class A roof reflector

I have been thinking about applying a ceramic adhesive spray type material to the fiberglass roof of my RV. I would like to know if there is anyone else that has done this before I pull the trigger and apply it.

Thanks

A few questions come to mind.

Why? Is there a problem with your fiberglass roof?

If you do apply the coating, can you still walk on the roof safely? Slippery? Brittle?

If you do apply the coating, will you have to use different sealants on your hull penetrations?

Indeed. Why?

I re-painted mine after 10 years, because the old paint had gotten chalky. Took just an afternoon to clean well, mask the edges, and apply two coats.

Are you talking about ceramic paint to protect roof and reflect heat? If so what brand? You said adhesive is it fexable?

I am talking about TC Ceramic Liquid Ceramic Insulation Coating found on line along with several other type products that claim to reflect the suns heat rays from penetrating into the interior of the RV. This is what they claim :
TC Ceramic (previously known as Thermal-Coat) is a liquid insulation, consisting of a mixture of various silicon and ceramic beads blended into a high quality acrylic polymer. TC Ceramic is designed to provide both thermal and acoustical insulation for a variety of industrial applications, providing an effective, inexpensive alternative to the high cost of typical insulation systems. Due to its excellent reflectivity and emissivity, TC Ceramic excels at insulating structures and equipment from radiant energy gain. 99% of the radiant energy that comes in contact with TC Ceramic is either reflected or re-emitted, meaning only 1% of the radiant energy is absorbed. TC Ceramic also performs very well at protecting personnel from burn hazards on hot or cold structures and equipment. Because it physically adheres to the surface, TC Ceramic significantly reduces corrosion and rust formation. TC Ceramic is extremely lightweight and pliable, therefore, it expands and contracts with the surface to which it is applied. The use of TC Ceramic, in place of other insulation, reduces both the space and weight for any given structure or piece of equipment.


However when I asked this guy for a written quote on his e-mail he did not even reply. Seemed shady to me so I started searching other products. Before I went further though I knew that there is a lot of experience on this site and decided to ask you all first.
