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:

Breathability

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.”

Windproof

Rhino Shield is very popular in coastal regions because of the harsh weather conditions in those areas. High salt content in the air, along with excessive moisture and high winds, wear down all other house coatings. Rhino Shield stands up to these conditions, having passed the Miami-Dade wind driven rain 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.

Mildewcide

Rhino Shield now includes a three part EPA registered mildewcide cocktail. It includes a mildewcide, algaecide, and fungicide.

The algaecide actually stops photosynthesis from happening. Most paints only contain mildewcide, but our field research clearly showed this three part system to be superior. 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, one of the largest and most respected chemical companies in the world, has tested Rhino Shield in several areas. In these tests, they found Rhino Shield to excel at viscosity, flexibility, tear resistance, breathability, and tensile strength. They also performed an accelerated aging test, in which Rhino Shield retained its flexibility and showed no sign of aging.

Ceramic Microspheres

Testing shows the solids used in Rhino Shield offer much lower thermo-conductivity than the mineral filler used in traditional paint. Rhino Shield is classified as a “low-e” coating because it acts as a thermal barrier, keeping heat inside in the winter and keeping heat outside in the summer.

Salt Tolerance

Rhino Shield out-performed the industry leader, Rustoleum, in the area of salt tolerance. This is very important in coastal areas, where salt content in the air can wear down traditional outdoor paint products.

Class A Fire and Smoke Rated

Rhino Shield has a Class-A fire and smoke rating. Louisiana residents who live in wildfire-prone areas may be eligible for a homeowner's insurance discount if their home is coated in a Class-A fire rated material.
