Performance Data & Green Features
What Makes Rhino Shield Different?
We believe that designing and testing are an ongoing process, and we constantly strive to make our products more environmentally friendly. We have achieved quite a bit of success toward that goal — we are now qualified to do lead paint testing and removal, BASF has given our products high durability and longevity ratings, and our products have gotten high marks in fire resistance testing. This means if a fire strikes a home protected by our products, less of it will end up in a landfill.Get a Free Estimate
Green Features of Our Florida Coatings
Our products have many green features including low VOC (less than 100 grams per liter), non-toxicity, safe for skin contact, approval for solid waste landfill disposal, nonflammable, resistance to the growth of mold and mildew, and the Low-E reduces thermal conductivity to insulate buildings better. They have a low enough odor that they aren’t an inhalation hazard, and we are members of the Florida Green Building Coalition. We believe companies should promote environmental consciousness and long-term sustainability, and our products do just that.
Our Products are Tested by Outside Companies
BASF Chemical Company and the National Fire Protection Association both performed tests on Rhino Shield to ensure it is a long-lasting and durable product that is better for the environment than its competitors. BASF found out, independently, that our products provided protection and longevity against exposure to heat, cold, and moisture. It performed well against accelerated general weathering and salt tolerance better than most exterior paints. The NFPA tested fire tolerance, giving it a Class ‘A’ rating. Records of tests are available on request.
Lead Paint Testing and Removal
Rhino Shield of Mid Florida has passed all requirements to become certified to test and remove lead-based paint from homes. All homes built before 1978 might have been painted with lead-based paint… some of which may still be there. Many painting contractors don’t take its removal very seriously, but we aim to detect its presence and safely get it out of your home for the health and safety of your family.I want to know more
