Ceramic Elastomeric Top Coats - The Signature Rhino Shield Coating System
As Rhino Shield's signature system, our Durable Finish Coat is Engineered to outlast paint and formulated to outlast the elements that are constantly attacking your home's coating. This coating is used in our 2-coat or 3-coat systems and excels in most conditions and climates. Comprised of compact, variable-sized ceramic microspheres, the DFC's benefits are unmatched. Durable Finish Coats are a 100% acrylic waterborne, latex-based, high build formula that exceeds Federal Wind Driven Rain specifications. DFC's also reduce the temperature of exterior walls, compared to traditional exterior paint products. DFC's beautify and protect every surface it is applied to, making it the superior alternative to conventional exterior painting methods.
Our innovative technology combines elastomeric acrylic resin with urethane resin, resulting in an elastic film that expands and contracts with hot and cold temperatures while also providing excellent impact and chemical resistance. Durable Finish Coats exceed all relevant industry standards, making them the best choice for use in any situation. DFC forms a thick rubber-like ceramic shield of protection that becomes part of the substrate when paired with the APS primer due to excellent adhesion and bonding. Rhino Shield's Durable Finish Coat offers superior mildew and corrosion resistance. Furthermore, DFC offers insulation and an added sound resistance, excellent adhesion, ultraviolet ray reflectivity, and a beautiful finish. As the cherry on top, our Durable Finish Coat can be tinted to virtually any color, giving you the freedom to make creative choices for your property.
