Can Rhino Shield Be Used on Brick?
Since the dawn of civilization, humans have used many different effective (and not so effective) building materials to construct one of the most basic of human needs: shelter.
While the human need for safety, security, and peace of mind will likely never change, the materials and strategies we use to achieve this need has changed as society has advanced. Fast-forward to today, where we have advanced building materials and options for customization and protection. Perhaps the apex of customization and protection technology can be found in Rhino Shield’s special ceramic elastomeric coating.
To answer the question posed by this blog, yes, Rhino Shield’s ceramic elastomeric coating bonds beautifully with brick in any custom color to create the look of your dreams for the exterior of your home. But, before we discuss the durability and versatility of Rhino Shield’s special coating, let’s take a look back at building materials of the past.
Ancient Building Materials, Before House Painting Services
Now the very first building materials had an expiration date, meaning they would deteriorate over time and were seen as perishable. Some of these building materials included leaves, tree limbs, and animal hides. As you can imagine, the rudimentary huts built with these materials were strictly utilitarian, with little room for customization.
More Durable, But Obsolete
Fast-forward a little bit and humans have started to create more complex societies. With these advances came the need for more durable building materials. Naturally strong materials such as stone, clay, and timber started to become the standard building material for homes and gathering places. Despite being slightly more advanced than their ancient counterparts, these natural materials were still vulnerable to the elements and left little room for aesthetic customization.
Bricks, Metal, and Other Modern Age Materials
Fast-forward even further to the early 20th century. Modern advancements in building technology brought us strong and uniform bricks, flexible metals, and more. These advancements helped modern civilization reach for the stars and build skyscrapers, massive sports stadiums, and affordable and customizable homes. Traditional paints also become popular in the 19th and 20th centuries, giving homeowners the option to customize their homes for the first time.
Needless to say, these paints did not stand the test of time and quickly started to fade, crack, chip, and deteriorate. Would you be surprised if I told you that many exterior house painting services still use latex-based paints similar to those used in the mid-20th century?
Rhino Shield’s Ceramic Elastomeric Coating Is the Height of Exterior House Painting Technology
At Rhino Shield, our special ceramic elastomeric coating is engineered to powerfully bond with the vast majority of modern building materials including bricks, aluminum, steel, stucco, and more.
When compared to traditional latex exterior paint, Rhino Shield is undoubtedly more durable. Our special coating is applied 8 to 10 times thicker during our painting process. This is because it is made with 80 percent ceramic microsphere solids compared to traditional house paint, which is typically around 60 percent water with clay additives.
To put it simply, more advanced science combined with better components leads to greater durability, eliminating the need perpetuate to the paint and repaint cycle.
