Rhino Shield Testing Summary

Rhino Shield has remained successful over the years because it has been constantly subjected to lab testing, research, and product development. Our product has been through years of rigorous lab testing by BASF and other ASTM laboratories to ensure its durability and performance. Rhino Shield must continually pass the industry’s most extreme internal thermal tests where substrates are coated with Rhino Shield and then exposed to subfreezing temperatures followed immediately by extreme heat and then subjected moisture. In addition to this extreme testing, Rhino Shield is subjected to extreme exterior exposure testing. This is why our product stands up to weathering and exposure over the years, no matter what your climate.

This is why our product stands up to weathering and exposure over the years, no matter what your climate. We are very proud of our testing results and believe the tests support our position as the ceramic coating leaders. Our lab results verify our performance claims and offer proof of the scope of Rhino Shield's protection. Some important characteristics include:
