We use a two-coat installation process. After the surface of your building is prepped and ready, we apply our primer coat that will seal, be waterproof, provide a bonding agent for the ceramic finish coat, and can 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 Wisconsin Weather Elements

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 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 for longevity. The product 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.
