Rhino Shield Testing Summary

Continual product development, research, and testing have been the cornerstones of Rhino Shield’s success over the years. Our ceramic coating system has been tested by BASF and other top ASTM laboratories to verify its performance and durability. 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. After years of exposure to many different environments, our proprietary system remains durable and continues to perform.

This is why our product stands up to weathering and exposure over the years, no matter what your climate. As you can see below, our product excels in lab tests across the board, proving its durability and longevity. Independent testing confirms our performance claims, and offers assurance to our customers that Rhino Shield will perform on their homes and businesses. Some key performance characteristics include:
