What Is The Difference Between Paint And Rhino Shield

At Rhino Shield, we often field a common question: “What makes Rhino Shield different from traditional paint?” or “Why should I opt for Rhino Shield over regular paint?” The answer lies in understanding that Rhino Shield isn’t just paint; it’s a transformative coating that surpasses the capabilities of conventional latex paint in several key aspects. While it mimics the appearance of paint, its formulation and performance elevate it to a league of its own.

Unlike traditional latex paints, which require repainting every 3-5 years, Rhino Shield breaks free from this repetitive cycle. With a minimum lifespan guarantee of 25 years, Rhino Shield offers enduring protection, sparing homeowners the hassle and expense of frequent repainting.

Traditional latex paints contain a high water content, typically around 60-70%, providing limited defense against nature’s elements. In contrast, Rhino Shield boasts a water content of only 21%, allowing for a thicker, more resilient coating that offers superior protection against harsh weather conditions, ensuring long-lasting beauty for your home’s exterior.

Moreover, while traditional paints rely on basic solids like calcium and clay powder for minimal protection, Rhino Shield incorporates a sophisticated blend of high-performance resins, urethane, ceramic microspheres, titanium, biocides, and fire retardants. This advanced formulation forms a robust barrier against UV rays and moisture, safeguarding your home from sun damage, fading, and moisture infiltration. Rhino Shield’s innovative composition effectively blocks up to 90% of UV rays and boasts an impressive R-equivalency rating of 6.89, providing insulation akin to over 1 1/2 inches of polystyrene foam.

In terms of mold and mildew resistance, Rhino Shield far surpasses traditional paints. While regular paints may offer mildewcide at best, Rhino Shield includes a triple cocktail of protection, featuring algicide, fungicide, and mildewcide in every batch. Tested rigorously by BASF laboratories, Rhino Shield has demonstrated zero breakdown over a decade, effectively preventing mold and mildew growth and ensuring long-term protection for your home.

These are just a few of the many advantages Rhino Shield offers over traditional paint, with more detailed information available on our website. Despite its superior performance, Rhino Shield maintains the familiar appearance of paint and offers a wide array of colors, providing homeowners with both durability and aesthetic appeal.
