Benefits of Rhino Shield

Rhino Shield does so much more than what traditional paint can do for your house. Renewing the look of your home is a benefit of both paint and of our ceramic coating. But with Rhino Shield, the renewed look will far outlast that of paint. Unlike conventional house paint, which is solely used for aesthetics, Rhino Shield is largely beneficial to the overall well-being of your house. Protection from UV rays, resistance to weathering, and a seal against moisture are only a few benefits of our ceramic coating. Other benefits of Rhino Shield include:


Rhino Shield was designed to allow moisture and vapors to flow through it to prevent condensation and extra moisture. According to ASTM standards, our product is rated “fully permeable.”


Rhino Shield passes the Miami-Dade wind driven rain standard. Manufactured in Florida and used extensively on the coasts, this is an important standard. The standard is to withstand 98 mile-per-hour wind driven rain.

In 2004, after Hurricane Ivan, field tests were conducted on waterfront homes coated with Rhino Shield in areas that had experienced the worst conditions (126 mph wind-driven rain). Results of this study found that no moisture had penetrated the coating or the house.


Our 2010 Rhino Shield has incorporated new mildewcide cocktail. This is an EPA registered triple cocktail. In this 3-part cocktail are fungicide, mildewcide, and algaecide.

Most paints and coating products contain only a mildewcide, but studies show that our 3 part cocktail is much more effective. The algaecide that is included actually prevents photosynthesis from happening on the surface of your home. Our mildewcide cocktail is environmentally safe and 0 VOC.

BASF Tested and Verified

Our product is more durable than any coating product on the market today. BASF is a well respected chemical company usually recognized by the slogan, "We don't make a lot of the product you buy; we make a lot of the products you buy better." This company has performed several third party tests on our product. Through many tests, BASF found Rhino Shield to excel at breathability, tensile strength, viscosity, flexibility, and tear resistance. Additionally, BASF performed an accelerated aging test. At the end of the test, Rhino Shield showed no visible signs of aging and still retained its flexibility.


Ceramic Microspheres

Ceramic microspheres help insulate your home, unlike mineral fillers in traditional outdoor paint products. Rhino Shield acts as a thermal barrier, keeping heat outside in the summer and inside in the winter. That's why it is considered a “low-e” product.

Salt Tolerance

Rhino Shield is the most salt tolerant coating on the market. This is vital in coastal areas. As the testing shows, we are in the top category of salt tolerance, and even out-performed the industry standard, Rustoleum.

Class A Fire and Smoke Rated

Rhino Shield is Class A fire and smoke rated, and even contains materials that are used to make flame retardant materials. If you live in an area that is prone to wildfires, you may be eligible for a homeowner's insurance discount if you coat your home with Rhino Shield.
