Has anyone used the RMP-#3 to seal (coat) a rubber (EPDM) roof?

I just applied it to the fiberglass body and am very pleased with it.

I would not put anything on a EPDM roof unless it specifically states that it can be used for that. That roof costs a fortune to replace. Some coating will eat it right up. On a previous MH with a EPDM roof I only used DICOR products. They make the EPDM roof. Call them up and ask them.

Mike, I'm familiar with EPDM roofs and Dicor products. I recently re-coated the roof with RV Liquid Roof. I live in a high humidity area and would like to find a transparent coating that would seal the new roof from mildew and mold.

I'm not experimenting, I'm looking for the answer to my specific question. I appreciate your concern.

I believe that is made by ZEP here in Atlanta. You might want to call them and ask for the MSDS and see if there is any petroleum in it. I could't find it listed.

As I posted in another thread, and at the risk of sounding like a smart aleck. It' a floor wax, and over time if I recall it needs to be stripped and redone that may be a problem on a EDPM or rubber roof, but who knowes. Kind of like Dimond Shield works great until time to replace it JMHO.

I don't think you are trying to be a smart aleck, but "it is NOT a floor wax". It has NO wax in it, and no petroleum. It is a water based acrylic. It IS a floor finish product, so has no claim to being beneficial on an EPDM roof.

I'm not looking for advice, but facts from anyone who has tried it on their roof.

The acrylic dries to a hard coating and over time has cracked and flaked off. The EDPM roof expands and contracts with the weather. Not trying to give advice but doesn't sound like a good fit. Keep us posted on how it works for you.

Is this a statement from your own personal experience?

As I've stated, I DO NOT intend to try it until someone, who has done it, gives us a positive recommendation.
