The epoxy-based coating is designed to prevent chunks of ice from sliding off of the trailer and hitting cars behind it, the company says. To apply, the product must be mixed, poured and rolled onto the roof of the trailer. The 52-foot trailer kit comes with 10 gallons each of resin, hardener and surface primer and the rollers for applying the coating.
