Elastomeric Ceramic Coatings
Just what exactly is Elastomeric Ceramic Coating ? Many people don't really know the difference between this and ordinary paint. I'm going to explain what the benefits are of choosing to go with a superior product. Elastomeric coatings look like ordinary paint and the application is the same, but the two are very different. Elastomeric ceramic coating is far superior to traditional paints due to it's super thick elastic-like dried film which has outstanding adhesion, flexibility, and sealant characteristics. Then added are heat reflecting ceramic micro-spheres that protect the painted surface like a shield with a thick rubber like thermal barrier. That is why so many people are starting to use Elastomeric ceramic coatings on stucco, concrete and even metal roofs. It not only protects the house from the elements like wind,rain,UV rays, salt and rust corrosion, but it will lower your electric bill. That's right the reflectiveness bounces those harmful UV rays away from the house keeping the wall cooler and roof cooler if applied on the roof.
Rhino Shield is applied much thicker than the normal thickness of traditional paint approximately (16 ml's). That is thick enough to close all small cracks, but it also will expand and contract with varying temperatures. This helps to prevent more cracks in the future from popping up. Elastomeric wall coating is blended with Hy-Tech Insulating Ceramic Micro-spheres which helps it to insulate enough to reduce sound transfer. Talk about insulation! The mildew-cides that are added will prevent mold and mildew from growing in all areas.
These coatings are highly recommended for stucco and concrete because both of these like to crack in the heat when it expands. The protective layer will expand instead, leaving the building intact.
Mobile Homes or Modular homes which ever you prefer are also in need of this product since they have a hard time in the hottest and coldest months. The thin, poorly insulated walls are in desperate need of some protection. Rhino Shield Jacksonville is a great company to get these products from. They have a variety of products for the exterior of your home as well as Super Shield for the roof. Backed by a written 25 year warranty you can't beat it. Never paint again!
