How Rhino Shield Works

Two-Coat Installation in Florida

We use a two-coat installation process. After the surface of your building is prepped and ready, we apply a primer coat that will seal, be waterproof, provide a bonding agent for the ceramic finish coat, and potentially fill up to 1/16” cracks on the exterior of your home. The ceramic finish coat can be tinted to over 1,500 colors and is put on thick—about 100 square feet per gallon. Some areas may require brushing or back rolling of the ceramic finish coat.

Our Coating Resists Florida Weather Elements

Rhino Shield is a ceramic elastomeric coating; it looks like regular house paint but is applied eight to nine times thicker. Because it is so thick and seals so thoroughly, it gives your building hardy resistance to mold, mildew, algae, and any other issues caused by water exposure. It can be tinted over 1,500 colors and is more resistant to UV rays and fading than normal house paints. Rhino Shield also boasts a Class ‘A’ fire rating.

How Our Coating Was Developed

Rhino Shield of MidFlorida is not a paint. Our chemists believed that traditional paints weren’t adequate for exterior house painting and that ceramics were the key to durability and solar ray reflectivity. They also knew that breathability was an essential characteristic of longevity. This product that took us years to develop combines elastomeric acrylic resins with urethane resins, resulting in a tough surface that resists cracking because it remains flexible. The thick, rubber-like membrane uses adhesion and bonding to become part of the substrate.

It is a ceramic coating that is durable, flexible, and low maintenance. It lasts longer than most house paints and comes with a 25-year transferable warranty. Because it has insulative properties, it can even save you money on your heating and cooling bills. A coat of Rhino Shield will add both beauty and value to your home.

Why Do Residents and Business Owners in Florida Overwhelmingly Prefer Rhino Shield of Mid Florida?

25-Year Warranty

Our 25-year warranty on workmanship and quality ensures that your investment is protected. If you happen to sell your home in the next 25 years, the warranty transfers to the new homeowners, potentially earning you more in the sale.

Bonds Completely

With typical exterior paint, moisture can penetrate the paint film and get behind it and cause the wood to swell, leaving blisters, cracking, or peeling. Rhino Shield exterior paint bonds completely to the surface of your home so you don't have to worry about peeling and repainting. Our APS primer is unlike any on the market in terms of adhesion, penetration, and water sealing.
