  1. What Makes Rhino Shield Last? The Science Behind the Durability

Imagine painting your home with a shield, one that battles the sun, rain, wind, and salt, protecting your sanctuary without faltering. Rhino Shield is that shield. But what makes it so resilient? It's all in the mix - a special blend of binders, resins, and solids. This isn't your regular paint; it's a superhero in the world of exterior coatings. Here's why:

  • Binders and Resins: The glue that holds the paint together, making it stick to your walls without cracking or peeling.
  • Solids: They give the paint its body and depth, ensuring your home doesn't just look good on day one but continues to shine years down the line.
  • Our premium coating comes at a cost, though. While in the long run, you’ll save money over the many years you won’t have to repaint, Rhino Shield comes out at an initial cost that is 2 – 2 and a half times more than your typical paint job. However, many of our dealers offer financing options.


  1. The Rhino Shield Promise: A 25-Year, Non-Prorated Warranty

Imagine buying a car that comes with a 25-year warranty. Sounds unbelievable, right? That's the level of confidence we have in Rhino Shield. This isn't just any warranty; it's a promise that your home will look stunning for a quarter of a century. And if something does go amiss, we've got your back, even if it's year 24, day 364.


  1. Proven Through Testing: How Rhino Shield Withstands the Elements

Let's be honest, we all wish we could fast-forward to see how decisions play out, especially when it comes to our homes. Well, with Rhino Shield, we sort of can. Through rigorous testing in conditions that mimic decades of weather abuse, Rhino Shield has emerged victorious time and again. It's like watching your home fast-forward through years of seasons in a weathering chamber, only to emerge looking as fresh as ever.



The core of any long-lasting coating begins with its ability to stick reliably to the surface it's protecting. This crucial characteristic, known as adhesion, is rigorously tested at Rhino Shield. Independent, third-party lab tests are conducted on a variety of materials, including vinyl siding, metal, stucco, brick, wood, and more, to measure Rhino Shield’s adherence capability. Through a "pull test" measuring pounds per square inch (PSI), Rhino Shield has demonstrated adhesion strength as high as 709 PSI—indicating a bond often stronger than the materials themselves.


However, achieving optimal adhesion depends significantly on the product formulation and surface preparation. Cleaning and prepping the surface down to the spore level is essential to prevent biogrowth resurgence. Additionally, addressing any damage, such as rotting wood from moisture, is crucial before application. This underscores why Rhino Shield is exclusively applied by certified professionals trained to prepare and repair your home’s exterior thoroughly.



Elongation is about how much a coating can stretch, vital in areas with extreme temperature changes. For example, a customer from Michigan highlighted the need for a paint that can adapt to both hot summers and cold winters. Rhino Shield’s flexibility allows it to move with your home's natural expansion and contraction, preventing cracks and peeling. With a thickness of 8-10 dry mils, Rhino Shield significantly surpasses the elasticity of standard house paints, stretching up to 495%—well above the elastomeric standard.


Tensile Strength

Tensile strength measures the force needed to damage or break a coating. Traditional paints, which are about 60% water, leave a much thinner layer after drying. Rhino Shield, on the other hand, contains 79% solids, resulting in a thick, durable coating capable of withstanding physical impacts and environmental stresses. This thick layer ensures Rhino Shield’s superior protection and longevity, with tensile strength testing over 200 psi.



A dual-function coating should block external water while allowing internal moisture vapor to escape. Rhino Shield excels in this, preventing rain penetration yet permitting vapor from cooking, showers, and breathing to dissipate. This balance maintains a healthy home environment, free from wood rot, mold, and peeling paint. Moreover, Rhino Shield meets the Federal Wind-Driven Rain Code, ensuring it can withstand conditions akin to a category 2 hurricane, highlighting its exceptional performance in coastal and varied climate areas.


  1. Decades of Success: Real-World Endurance and Customer Testimonials

This isn't a fairytale; it's the reality for homes and businesses coated with Rhino Shield. From Florida's coastal winds to the sunny dispositions of California, Rhino Shield stands the test of time and elements.
