Rhino Linings Corporation launched its flooring division, Rhino Home Pro, in April 2008 to serve the needs of the residential and commercial flooring markets. The division draws upon the resources of the company’s 20 years of providing linings and coatings to new and diverse marketplaces. Among those products is Rhino EcoStain, a decorative concrete solution that will provide surface protection and enhance the look and feel of an ordinary floor.
Rhino Home Pro offers a variety of products for decorative garage floors, driveways, walkways, patios, and numerous commercial applications. Rhino Home Pro’s family of products includes, FastFloor, a premiere polyaspartic flooring solution; Rhino Epoxy, which offers numerous flooring systems; and Rhino EcoStain.
The Rhino EcoStain product line consists of two innovative products for the flooring industry. Rhino EcoStain Base Coat is bio-based, nontoxic and environmentally safe for interior and exterior applications. Rhino EcoStain infuses concrete with rich, deep, translucent tones giving character to ordinary, dull concrete. Rhino EcoStain ClearCoats are two-component, waterborne, polyurethane, top-coat systems that magnify the look of stained concrete while providing superior protection. Rhino EcoStain ClearCoats offer excellent UV, chemical, abrasion and impact resistance.
“Consumers are becoming more conscious of what products they are bringing into their homes and how it may be affecting their environment,” says Jenny Clifford, marketing manager for Rhino Home Pro. “Rhino EcoStain technology is preferred by eco-friendly professionals and consumers requiring a green environment.”
Because Rhino EcoStain is a soy-based product, it is ideal for interior and exterior applications of porous surfaces such as concrete poured or stamped, masonry, brick and many other substrates. Acid stains work by reacting chemically with the calcium hydroxide in concrete, so the product is not as diverse as soy-based stains.
As far as future products from Rhino Home Pro, its R&D department continues to work and develop new products for the company. The Rhino Industrial division recently expanded to include sprayed polyurethane foam and protective coatings for roofs. With Rhino SPF, the company’s closed cell spray polyurethane foam system improves energy efficiency and offers both a low life cycle cost and environmental impact with almost no maintenance, while Rhino Eco-Coat, its Rhino elastomeric roof coating, provides a significantly cost-effective role in the maintenance of roofing substrates.
