Roof Paint/Coating?

Hello,
Does anyone know the difference between roof paint and coating?
Many years ago i used something that was made of tar, fiberglass and plus something that made it dry shiny silver. I think the "fiberglass" was of a fiber nature. It was applied with a brush, but i donot remember what kind of brush.
Does anyone know if such still exists? It was expensive. I had it painted on a slightly, showing-signs-of -usting roof.
Thank you

All the box stores have this in the roofing displays. I believe they label it as 'Mobile Home Roof Coating' and it definitely comes in silver. HTH

Sounds like the exact material used on mobile homes during the '50s in S Florida. It sealed the roof and the light color refracted plenty Sun and heat back away from the metal roof.
Many roof coatings were light color; at least over tar.
