Aerogel Insulation Coating
Green Label

How to Apply

1. Check Working Condition (Temperature, Weather)

2. Prepare paint tools (coating, brush, roller, tape) and safety gear (mask, gloves)

3. Remove any debris. rust, or mold from area to be worked on. If area is damp or moist, allow airflow and sufficient time to fully dry.

4. Mark edges with painter’s tape.

5. Apply primer, if necessary. Primer is recommended for very smooth surfaces such as metal, plastic, and ceramic surfaces.

6. Open roVa Shield and using an appropriate tool, stir or mix for 3~5 minutes.

7. Apply using brush, roller, or airless spray.

8. After applying the first coat, allow 30 minutes to 1 hour for the painted area to dry before applying the next coat
(repeat steps 7 and 8 until thickness meets recommended thickness (0.5mm, 0.02” or above)
(Apply 1mm, 0.04” or above for areas with serious condensation problems)

9. After applying additional coats, allow 24 hours to cure

FAQ

1. Can I dilute or add water?

• No. Do NOT add water.
Adding water may create problems when applying and degrade insulation performance.
Please use as is.

 

2. What is the coverage for a 4-liter bucket?

• At 0.5mm thickness, 4 liters will cover 5.4 square meters.
Equivalently, at 0.02” thickness, 1.06 gallon(4 liters) will cover 58.1 square feet.

 

3. How many coats should I apply?

• Normally, 2~3 coats are recommended to reach a thickness of 0.5mm (0.02”).
 

4. After applying roVa Shield, can I add other finishing layers or coat with color paint on top?

• After applying roVa Shield, various finishing layers may be applied on top, including color paint.
For applying color paint as topcoat, roVa Shield TopCoat is recommended. Please inquire regarding topcoat compatibility.

 

5. Can I apply on rooftop or exterior walls?

• roVa Shield is for interior only. To apply on rooftops or exterior walls, additional topcoat must be applied.
Please inquire regarding topcoat compatibility.

 

6. Can I add color?

• Yes, you may add color to roVa Shield at a nearby paint shop.
 

7. How long does it take to fully dry?

• It depends on working atmosphere. At room temperature, it takes 24 hours to fully cure.
 

8. After applying, how long does the insulation performance last?

• The insulation performance of roVa Shield is semi-permanent, as long as the applied surface is not physically damaged.
 

9. When applying, does it give off bad order or dangerous chemicals?

• roVa Shield is a water-based coating and does not contain dangerous chemicals. Therefore it does not give off bad order or dangerous chemicals. When applying, overly repeated hard brush strokes may cause white powder to come off. This is aerogel, the main performance ingredient of roVa Shield, and it is harmless according to FDA studies. Please inquire about additional information.

How to Mix

After opening roVa Shield, mixing by hand with a mixing stick is usually sufficient for most cases. For products that have been sitting on the shelf for a long time may require a bit more effort. We recommend using a mixing rod attached to a power tool. Even the thickest roVa Shield coating will mix in a matter of few minutes.

In the demonstration video, we mix the thickest version of roVa Shield Black Label that’s been on the shelf sitting idle for more than 3 months. We use a mixing rod attached to a power drill and in a little over a minute, the coating is all mixed and ready for application.

Don't be alarmed if the coating looks separated, i.e. thick white coating on top and watery coating on the bottom. This occurs over time because the super hydrophobic nature of aerogel inside the coating wants to separate and float on top of the water-based rova shield coating. Sufficient mixing will put them all back together.

Although mixing by hand with a stick is sufficient for most cases, for those cases where you need greater dispersion, mixing rods that are attachable to power tools are sold online for around $5. Among the roVa Shield lineup, roVa Shield Green Label is more likely to show this separation (see video below). Gently shaking the container before opening also helps.
