Once our products arrive at Commercial Testing Company, they are put through the ringer. They are tested to their limits to verify that they can effectively protect our client’s homes and businesses from water penetration, heat absorption, static electricity, and practically everything under the sun.

Once testing is complete, their team of engineers and scientists work with our team to tweak the formulas and proprietary blends we use. The result is a high quality product that complies with building standards and exceeds our customer’s expectations for our company.

How to Effectively Paint Your Hardie Plank Exterior

Hardie Plank exteriors have become one of the most popular siding materials in America. Durable and cost-effective, homes from California to South Carolina sport them on their exterior. While durable, painting a Hardie Plank exterior is essential to ensuring its long-term viability and protection.

Hardie Planks are a high-density mix of cellulose fibers, cement, and sand. This makes them practically impenetrable and highly resistant to everything from wind damage to moisture damage. To paint them, it’s important to caulk and seal all cracks and any seams, joints, or gaps before painting begins. For sealing, it’s advisable to use a high-quality acrylic or silicon caulk.

The next step is to ensure the surface is clean and free of mold, mildew, or other contaminants. This can be achieved by power washing and allowing the surface to dry. Once dry, any old paint should be removed, a primer applied, and then a coat of ceramic paint should be used to seal everything up. At this point, you can watch the coating dry and enjoy the results.

We would be glad to give you more details about painting a Hardie Plank exterior. Contact us at Rhino Shield today with your questions about our coatings.


Why Our Ceramic Coatings are Better than Latex Paint

Latex paint has been the standard home coating for a long time now. While good, there’s a new kid on the block that is far superior in both quality and durability. When it comes to the difference between ceramic coating and latex paint, the following are some things you’ll want to consider.

Latex paint is roughly 60 percent water. For comparison, Rhino Shield ceramic coatings are 80 percent solids. This means you’re getting a more solid product to protect your home. The more solid material within the formula, the more insulation it provides, and the better the product is at protecting your home from UV rays, moisture intrusion, etc.

Additionally, ceramic coatings contain ingredients that are designed to prevent mold, mildew, and algae growth. These can discolor your home and damage the underlying structure. Not only is this unsightly, but it can lead to very costly repairs. With a ceramic coating, you don’t have to worry about this. Finally, latex paint typically lasts 5-10 years; Rhino Shield ceramic coatings are designed to last 25 years or longer.

We hope this information regarding the difference between ceramic coating and latex paint is helpful to you. Contact Rhino Shield for more information regarding our coating products.
