San Diego, CA (August 31, 2009) – Rhino Linings Corporation,, a global provider of industrial, municipal and residential protective Urethane, Polyaspartic and Epoxy coatings and linings, is excited to announce the introduction of its new roof coating system for certified commercial roof and general contractors. Rhino Linings has an extensive history of its independent dealers and applicators applying water-proofing roof coatings in commercial applications throughout Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia.

Available immediately globally, the new eco-friendly Rhino Roof Coating System contains a comprehensive selection of coating materials including Rhino™ SPF (Spray Polyurethane Foam) with 2.5, 2.8 and 3.0 density. SPF roofing systems are cost competitive with other systems and have demonstrated over a 30-year life span to cost between 10% and 50% less on average than comparably insulated membrane roof systems*.

Additional Rhino roof coatings available in the eco-friendly roof coating system include: Rhino Eco-Coat™, an aluminized polyurea top coat applied over foam or metal roofs providing enhanced UV stability; Rhino Acrylic Top Coat™ applied over foam in hot, dry climates for UV resistance on sloped roofs; and Rhino Silicone Top Coat™ used in rainy weather and extreme temperature environments. When properly applied by state certified roof or general contractors, the Rhino Roof Coating System qualifies for a 5-Year, No Leak, Roof Coating Limited Warranty.

Rhino Roof Coating System materials assist architects and building owners in earning LEED (The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Credits for their building projects. LEED, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council,, is a third-party certification program and nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

"We're excited about our entry into the roof coatings market," said Pierre Gagnon, President and CEO. "Rhino Linings has a 20+ year history of identifying and manufacturing innovative chemical formulations and an eco-friendly roofing system is a natural extension of our expertise. We're looking to add new certified roofing contractors to our global network of professional roofing applicators to help us become a major world-wide provider of roof coating solutions."
