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

The Rhino Shield protective finish coat is classified as fully permeable by ASTM standards. The perm rate allows the coating to breathe and release condensation and vapors.

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. To pass the Miami-Dade standard, Rhino Shield had to withstand a minimum of 98 mile-per-hour wind-driven rain.

Field tests were conducted on waterfront homes exposed to Hurricane Ivan in 2004. The homes were in Okaloosa County Florida where wind driven rain topped out at 126 mph. Moisture meter readings conducted after the storm found no moisture penetration.

Mildewcide

Rhino Shield now includes a three part EPA registered mildewcide cocktail. In this 3-part cocktail are fungicide, mildewcide, and algaecide.

Unlike other paint products that only contain a mildewcide, our superior product actually prevents the occurrence of photosynthesis. In an effort to design an eco-friendly product, our mildewcide solution is zero VOC and it environmentally safe.

BASF Tested and Verified

Unlike traditional outdoor paint, Rhino Shield will not peel, crack, blister, or flake. Rhino Shield has been third-party tested by BASF Chemical Company. BASF is one of the largest and most respected chemical companies in the world. They are 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." 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

The solid components (ceramic microspheres) in Rhino Shield are far superior to the mineral fillers found in traditional outdoor paint. Ceramic microspheres have many benefits, including the ability to insulate your home. 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 was found to be the most salt-tolerant product on the market, even surpassing Rustoleum, the industry standard. This is a very important quality to homeowners living in coastal areas where salt content in the air is high.

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.
