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 passes the Miami-Dade wind driven rain standard. Manufactured in Florida and used extensively on the coasts, this is an important 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. The three parts include a mildewcide, fungicide, 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

Unlike traditional outdoor paint, Rhino Shield will not peel, crack, blister, or flake. 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. BASF has performed several rounds of testing on Rhino Shield. Rhino Shield excels at flexibility, tear resistance, tensile strength, breathability, and viscosity. 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 is a "low-e" product that helps keep the heat from transferring into the building in hot climates, and from escaping from the building in cold weather.

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. In some areas of the country prone to wildfires, buildings with a Class A fire rating may qualify for a discount on their homeowner's insurance.
