Rhino Shield’s success as a superior alternative to traditional exterior painting is due to continual product development, research and testing. 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 to 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.
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 painting performance claims and offers assurance to our customers that Rhino Shield will perform on their homes and businesses.

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 are invariably superior over traditional exterior painting in the marketplace.
