    Maybe too simple: just hang the mylar, it will stay smooth. It's a grow room, not a gymnasium.

    Default Flat white paint over roofing coatings

    I was just looking back at afew lines and seen roof coatings. I'd be wary of using it. I can almost smell it after it heated awhile under a 1000 watter. I myself agree keep it simple. Flat white paint. You wat top grade use sherwin williams ever clean paint. It's a flat washable enamel. GL hope your Gradens are green Keepem Green

    I would strongly recommend pool flat white paint. It is only 1 or 2% less reflective and NO hot spots. Every little crease in the Mylar creates hot spots that make for uneven reflection that can burn leaves. Look at the best grow cabinets in production. They are flat white, not coated in Mylar.
