Science Behind the Shield 


The Rhino Shield application process has proven to protect your property against the harshest weather while improving the overall energy efficiency.

Ceramic Microspheres were invented in the early 1960s as an outgrowth from the manufacture of solid ceramic beads. Because the micro spheres are made from ceramics, they provide the additional benefits of high heat and chemical resistance.  The central air pocket in the micro spheres provides an insulating barrier for your walls much like a thermos bottle does. This insulating, industrial maintenance-free coating is long lasting, offering superior mildew resistance, corrosion resistance, and ultra-violet ray reflectivity.  Rhino Shield’s Ceramics incorporate different sized microspheres as fillers. Conventional paints utilize inexpensive mineral products as fillers that are irregular in shape and size. These irregularly-shaped fillers don’t pack nearly as well as a mix of small and large microspheres. (The smaller spheres pack more tightly into the spaces between the larger spheres.) The more densely the coating is packed with microspheres, the less permeable it is to stains and the thicker it is when dry.

Adding ceramic microspheres and high quality Titanium Dioxide to our top grade 100% acrylic elastomeric resins makes Rhino Shield reflect more light and heat, repel water better, and is more durable than any other coating on the market. Ongoing testing and constant improvements ensure that Rhino Shield will remain the absolute best exterior paint coating for your home.  For a complete look at the science of Rhino Shield Ceramic Paint Coatings, please call today and speak to one of our experienced representatives.

They had a few days of delay due to the weather but when they could work, they did. And when they couldn’t work they explained why and they were very valid reasons. I must say they were very dedicated to being thorough and making sure the job was done correctly. The workers listened to any… Read more “DAVID T”

I contracted Rhino Shield this summer for my home and I couldn't be happier. They took the time to walk me through the process and I never felt pressure by anyone at the company to buy. My home gets direct sunlight and rough weather and I was tired of the chipping and peeling I was getting every 4 or 5 years. They were able to color match exactly what my wife wanted and i don't have to worry about painting. Great company and product!

"Don't paint, don't vinyl, go Rhino!" Catchy isn't it? After weeks of research into this product I was convinced this was the best solution for exterior coating. If you do your reading on the company and the product and want yourself a 25 year guarantee, this is absolutely the best way to go.

I wanted this to be the last time I had to have my house repainted. I looked into long-term solutions and found Rhino Shield in the area, and after having a long talk with them on the phone, I had them come out. Great job. All my neighbors were asking about my house, nothing by compliments!

I needed a new siding paint that would hold up well in high-winds. This product has been highly-tested and definitely comes out looking good. The price was totally reasonable, I'd say this is surely the best investment.
