Rhino Industrial™, a business unit of Rhino Linings Corporation introduces its new family of epoxy product coating and lining solutions Feb 3-6, 2009 at World Of Concrete 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Rhino Industrial has been experiencing exponential growth in new products, installations, and applicators and the new epoxy products dramatically advance the company's technological offering for commercial, industrial, and residential flooring markets.

"These new epoxy solutions are another strategic diversification for our company," stated Pierre Gagnon, CEO and President of Rhino Linings Corporation. "Together with our polyaspartic and polyurethane products, industry specifiers, contractors, and our Rhino Home Pro™ applicators now have access to a complete line of coating and lining solutions."

Rhino's epoxy products are specially formulated to provide economical savings along with quick return-to-service times. Each product is easy to use, has an extended working time and can be applied by spray, brush, roller, squeegee, or trowel. The floor coatings are ideal for manufacturing facilities, chemical and food processing plants, pharmaceutical plants, casinos, hospitals, hotels, schools, refineries, prisons, residential garages, and many more indoor and outdoor applications.

Rhino™ Epoxy Floor Coating Products:

  • Rhino™ 450 - Structural epoxy gel
  • Primer 1500 - Clear, water based, 2-part epoxy primer
  • Rhino™ 1501 - Pigmented, 2-part epoxy coating
  • Rhino™ 2300 - Clear or pigmented 100% solids epoxy coating
  • Rhino™ 9300 - Novolac, self leveling, tightly cross-linked epoxy coating
  • Rhino™ 9700 - Novolac, thixotropic, tightly cross-linked epoxy coating & lining

Rhino™ 405 - Structural Epoxy Gel - is a highly versatile, 100% solids high build system. Its wide variety of uses on concrete substrate includes structural restoration, patching, and adhesive repairs. The long working life of Rhino 405 is ideal for repairing large concrete floors and restoration of deteriorated concrete structures.

Primer 1500 - Clear Water Based Epoxy Primer - is a clear, two part, water based epoxy primer that is easy to mix, easy to use, and provides superior results. It is applied over concrete and many other substrates by brush, roller or spray equipment. Primer 1500 dries quickly, and is usually dust free within 60 - 90 minutes. The unique "lacquer dry" (dust free) cure allows Primer 1500 to be recoated quickly. The material has a long working time (2 - 3 hrs) which allows large batches to be mixed together.

Rhino™ 1501 - Pigmented Water Based Epoxy Coating - is a pigmented, two part water based epoxy coating using 1:1 (equal) volumetric mixing of resin and hardener. It is easy to mix, easy to use and provides superior hide and coverage. Rhino 1501 is applied over concrete and other substrates by brush, roller or spray equipment. It dries quickly, and is usually "lacquer dry" (dust free) within 60 - 90 minutes. The unique lacquer dry cure allows Rhino 1501 to be recoated quickly. The material has a long work time (2 -3 hrs) which allows larger batches to be mixed.

Rhino™ 2300 - 100% Solids Self Leveling Epoxy Coating - is a 100% solids epoxy coating system that is easily mixed using the industry standard 2:1 by volume ratio of resin to hardener. Rhino 2300 is a versatile, general purpose, multi-use epoxy with good chemical resistance. It applies easily over concrete substrate by brush, roller, trowel or squeegee. Rhino 2300 dries quickly, usually tack free within 4 - 6 hours, and it dries to a high gloss with greater color stability than conventional epoxies.

Rhino™ 9300 - 100% Solids Novolac Self Leveling Epoxy Coating - is a high quality Bis-F epoxy with superior chemical and abrasion resistance versus Bis-A type epoxy resins. This tightly cross-linked, self-leveling epoxy system cures in the presence of moisture and humidity with excellent mechanical properties. Rhino 9300 mixes using the industry standard, 2:1 by volume ratio. For vertical applications, Rhino 9700 is recommended.

Rhino™ 9700 - Novolac Epoxy Coating & Lining - A highly thixotropic which makes it well suited for vertical applications. It is a high quality Bis-F epoxy novolac coating and lining system which has superior chemical and abrasion resistance versus Bis-A type epoxy resins. The Rhino 9700 crosslinked epoxy system cures in the presence of moisture and humidity with excellent mechanical properties. Rhino 9700 mixes using the industry standard, 2:1 by volume ratio. Having low odor, Rhino 9700 contains no solvents and is 100% solids.

Rhino™ Floor Configurations:

Concrete Patch - Structural epoxy gel is a highly versatile, 100% solids high build system. Its wide variety of uses on concrete substrate includes structural restoration, patching, and adhesive repairs.

Primer - A clear, two-part water-based epoxy primer that is easy to mix, easy to use. Coatings - One or two coat systems with the consistency of thin or thick films. May be used as a stand alone product.

Self Leveling System - A system used to fill pitted concrete and can also be used as a stand alone product or top coat.
Broadcast System - Single or multiple coats of distributed aggregate for additional slip resistance and/or to build film thickness and top coated.

Slurry Filled System - A system designed to fill pitted or degraded concrete as well as providing a finish coat in a one-step application.

Trowel System - A coating that is filled to a trowel consistency then hand-troweled or power-troweled. Typically used when there is heavier traffic with a requirement for better impact resistance and compressive strength. Also a better system for moisture vapor remediation.

Spray-on Urethanes - Rhino sprayed-on elastomeric polyurethane, polyurea, polyaspartic, and hybrid solutions are 100% solids, VOC free. They provide improved toughness and color stability, while retaining the non-skid grip that made Rhino Linings legendary. They also offer excellent stability for immersion applications and chemical resistance and rigid formulations with the highest amount of molecular cross-linking. All provide excellent corrosion resistance and will not deteriorate from most chemical attacks.
