I purchased Eternabond to repair a snagged area on the TPO on our camper. It says, as has been mentioned in this thread, that it needs added UV protection. As I need only a "thimble full," buying their smallest quantity for $35, doesn't seem very practical. Does someone here have an alternate? I see that TPO doesn't want a protectant so I guess I'll need to mask off the Eternabond.

Unless you purchased the EternaBond WS (WebSeal) type of tape, all other EternaBond tapes DO NOT need UV protection.
If you did purchase the WS tape, take it back and purchase the "RoofSeal" type.

Directly from the EternaBond web site...

"When using WB-Seal on areas that are exposed to sunlight, two coatings of EternaBond® UV Protector Sealer liquid (included in the Seam Repair Kits) is required. The installer can either paint over the sealer or tint it to match the exterior at a local paint store by mixing in the liquid tint coloring designed for latex paint -- starting at 75 percent less tint than required for latex paint.

All other EternaBond® tapes are UV protected and require no other coatings, but can be painted if so desired."

Thank you. That takes a load from my mind. I think I picked up needing the UV need from one of their videos and wasn't aware of the different products.

Eternabond tape is a must do for all new and used campers. It is the first thing I do when I bring a new to me camper home.

The smallest of cracks in Dicor can cause a lot of damage and this is cheap insurance to save you thousands in roof and sidewall delamination.

Plus it looks much better than Dicor which does not age well.

Just finished the eternabond today did the whole perimeter. tough stuff to work with. Started out having the DW help for the first section, but that song D-I-V-O-R-C-E becomes final today, kept playing in my head. After the first section had her stand on the back of the ladder to stabilize

Looks good. I still have to do my side seams over the side and into the gutters. Don't forget all the vents, skylight and anywhere else they thought dicor would work. ;-)
