Rhino Shield’s high tech coating part of a sustainable future 

<strong>Rhino Shield’s high tech coating part of a sustainable future </strong>

DESTIN, FLA. (June 30, 2023) – From the beginning, Rhino Shield’s ceramic elastomeric coatings were formulated to minimize environment impacts. Rhino Shield is non-toxic, low VOC, low odor, non-flammable and safe for skin contact. A truly eco-friendly product, when applied the ceramic topcoat also creates a low-e thermal barrier that saves energy by rejecting heat.

But the hallmark of Rhino Shield’s sustainable formulation is that it breaks the traditional paint cycle. AmCoat’s CEO, Terence Andre said in addition to environmental benefits, for many customers, it’s the last time they have to paint.

“We’re proud that our products are safe for the environment and help to conserve energy as well,” said Andre. “And because it breaks the paint cycle, Rhino Shield eliminates the need to repaint over and over every 3 to 5 years. That means greatly reducing the amount of paint manufactured and used over time.” 

Did you know Rhino Shield creates a thermal barrier around the home which can help save energy?

“Rhino Shield ceramic coatings have a high solar reflective index, helping to keep the heat out and reduce the amount of time air conditioning equipment is working to cool a building,” said Andre. “A large part of a building’s monthly energy usage goes toward cooling and many of our customers discover they save on their energy bills after applying Rhino Shield.”

On top of that, Rhino Shield helps prevent the growth of algae and mildew, which reduces the need for repeated exterior cleaning.

“Because of Rhino Shield’s built-in bio-growth inhibitors, less chemicals have to be used to maintain exterior surfaces,” said Andre. “That’s good for the environment, and it’s good for the home or business owner. So not only breaking the paint cycle, but also breaking the cleaning cycle.”
