Continual product development, research, and testing have been the cornerstones of Rhino Shield’s success over the years. Many top ASTM laboratories, including BASF, are utilized to test and verify the high performance characteristics of the Rhino Shield coating system. 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.

At Rhino Shield, designing and testing is an ongoing process. We are very proud of our testing results and believe the tests support our position as the ceramic coating leaders. 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:


Full testing reports are available upon request and include the laboratory, dates, methodology, test description, and detailed results. As you evaluate competitor coating options, be sure to ask for and review their test data. We think you’ll find our test results invariably superior to what else you’ll find in the marketplace.
