Painting brickwork comes with certain challenges. For one, traditional paint does not adhere to the material surface, which then results in it flaking or not looking good at all. It doesn’t help if the purpose of doing so is to cover up any apparent damage or discoloration on the brick. Fortunately, there are other alternatives, Rhino Shield® Ceramic Coating System being one of them.
Not Actually Paint
Rhino Shield is not like any standard paint. It is an innovative ceramic coating that bonds to brick just as easily as it can stick to the surface of any building material. This product can be the single solution for your home’s exterior – apart from brick, you can apply it over wood or vinyl siding, stucco or even garage doors.
Long-Term Protection for Your Brick Exterior
Rhino Shield can provide long-lasting protection for your brick exterior. It is composed of 80% solids unlike standard paint that is comprised of about 60% water. Once applied over damaged or discolored brick, it creates a dry film that is 8 to 10 times thicker than standard paint. With that, the product eliminates common painting concerns, such as chipping, peeling or efflorescence. More importantly, you don’t have to repaint again in the future.
Durable Brick Exterior
Brick exteriors with noticeable damage can become more durable with a coat of Rhino Shield. It is known as a top-notch water repellent, being able to withstand wind-driven rain of up to 100 miles per hour. The paint also improves the insulation of the building material, reflecting 90% of the sun’s rays. This results in an energy-efficient, more comfortable home. No wonder it is approved by ENERGY STAR®
