Default 1997 HiLo roof question ? Aluminlum

I have a 1997 tow-lite with a painted Aluminum roof. It's kinda like small bubbles or wood grain and a lot like trim core on a house but thicker. Has anybody used the Dicor metal roof coating and if so can you put it on a painted aluminum roof? Dicor don't really make it clear ? My guess you can but i like to know for sure. I will also be calling Dicor.
thanks Bigbar

They say it works on paint roofs. It just has to be cleaned well and make sure all loose paint is removed

You can also use Koolseal Elastomeric coating. It is available from hardware stores and big box stores. Follow the same instructions as shown in the above video.

I have used the Dicor RPMRC1 Elastomeric Metal RV Roof Coating and it is cheapest and it did work. It is the only one I ever tried. Dont put it on when cold though, it may work, but may peel later. Warm as per instructions…
Clean, clean clean the roof. Soap is fine, but rinse it off. Lightly sand or scour for best results.
