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

According to ASTM standards, Rhino Shield is considered “fully permeable.” Permeability allows the coating to release vapors and condensation, rather than locking them in and causing moisture damage.

Windproof

Homeowners in coastal regions rely on Rhino Shield to protect their homes from high winds and heavy rains. Rhino Shield passed the Miami-Dade wind driven rain standard. To pass this standard, a product must be able to withstand 98mph 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. 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. This cocktail is zero voc. It is environmentally safe and supports our efforts to design the greenest coating possible.

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 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.
