RHINO SHIELD TESTING SUMMARY

The success of Rhino Shield can be attributed to lab testing and continuous research and product development. 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 moisture. In addition to this extreme testing, Rhino Shield is subjected to extreme exterior exposure testing. This is why our product stands up to weathering and exposure over the years, no matter what your climate.

We are very proud of our testing results and believe the tests support our position as the ceramic coating leaders. Our lab results verify our performance claims and offer proof of the scope of Rhino Shield’s protection. Some key performance characteristics include:
