The History of Rhino Shield

The developers of Rhino Shield had a vision of offering a permanent exterior renovation that would stop the endless paint-peel-scrape-paint cycle. For a long time vinyl siding was the sole alternative to the expense and aggravation associated with the paint-peel-scrape-paint cycle for the exteriors of houses and businesses. After trying several other elastomeric coatings that purported to be durable and permanent but which failed miserably in just short periods of time a decision was made. They would create their own coating which would not only meet their initial expectations but with continued research, exceed them.

And so Rhino Shield was born and finally a coating was created that will not only permanently coat and seal wood but also brick, stucco, block, Masonite and other exterior surfaces such as Hardi-board.

The coating needed to be breathable, elastic, durable, and present an attractive finish in a variety of colors. Using top chemists and experts from manufacturing partners, Rhino Shield was developed.

Performance claims were literally “put to the test” by BASF and Rhino Shield passed with flying colors.

Ceramic Microspheres were formulated into Rhino Shield as the solid component, replacing cheaper, less durable mineral fillers found in common latex and oil based paints. The addition of ceramic microspheres improved protection against heat and harmful UV rays. This also reduced the thermal-conductivity of the coating which helps keeps the heat from transferring into a building in the summer, and escaping from a building in winter.
