Rhino Shield® Benefits

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.

Mildewcide

Rhino Shield has incorporated new mildewcide cocktail. This is an EPA registered triple cocktail. The three parts include a Mildewcide, Fungicide and Algaecide. The Algaecide actually stops photosynthesis from happening. Most paints only contain a mildewcide, but our field research clearly shows this three part system to be superior. This cocktail is zero VOC. It is environmentally safe and supports our efforts to design the greenest coating possible.

BASF Tested & Verified

BASF won’t crack, peel, flake or blister. Rhino Shield has been 3rd party tested by BASF Chemical Company. BASF is one of the largest and most respected chemical companies in the world. 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.

Windproof & Water Resistant

Rhino Shield passes the Miami-Dade wind driven rain standard. Manufactured in Florida and used extensively on the coasts, this is an important standard. The standard is to withstand 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 miles per hour. Moisture meter reading conducted after the storm found no moisture penetration.

Salt Tolerance

Rhino Shield is the most salt tolerant coating on the market. This is vital in coastal areas. As the testing shows, we are in the top category of salt tolerance and even outperformed the industry standard, Rustoleum.

Class A Fire & Smoke Rated

Won’t crack, peel, flake or blister. Rhino Shield has been 3rd 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”. BASF has performed several rounds of testing on Rhino Shield. Rhino Shield excels at flexibility, tear resistance, tensile strength, and breath-ability, 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.

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

Ceramic Microspheres

Testing shows the solids used in Rhino Shield, offer much lower thermo-conductivity than the mineral filler used in traditional paint. Rhino Shield is a “low-e” product that helps keep the heat from transferring into the building in hot climates, and from escaping from a building in cold weather.
