Every year, corroded machinery and home exterior components cost homeowners significant investments since corrosion is often an expensive problem. This is especially true for people who live in coastal towns or places that experience high rainfall and humid conditions. However, by taking the time to understand its root causes, you can take effective steps to prevent it or, at the very least, slow its progression. Palmetto Ceramic Coatings, your trusted Rhino Shield® painting contractors, discusses these steps below:
Use Red-Iron Metal Primer (RMP)
This primer is designed to prep metal and help encapsulate and slow down growth of existing rust on exterior walls of your home. This is because it is very high in solids, including zinc and red iron oxide pigments, which naturally form a solid barrier against the onset of rust and corrosion. RMP is also more environmentally friendly than traditional red iron oxide formulas, making it an ideal choice.
Rhino Shield® System
As your trusted exterior painters, we specialize in using the Rhino Shield, an elastomeric ceramic coating system designed for exterior walls and is deal for virtually any building substrate, including brick, wood, stucco and even HardiePlank® siding. It is made of almost 80% solids, which lasts longer and is superior than traditional paint.
The ceramic and tightly packed microspheres in Rhino Shield coatings have replaced traditional paint fillers, such as chalk, providing a stronger insulating barrier against heat, ultraviolet (UV) rays and coating breakdown. In addition, it contains an addictive registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that prevents the growth of unsightly and potentially harmful mold, mildew and algae.
