TuffGrip

TuffGrip® is the most versatile coating formulation of Rhino. Its spray-on polyurethane – aliphatic elastomer formulation provides improved toughness and color stability, while retaining the non-skid grip that made Rhino Linings products legendary. It can be applied with low pressure equipment.

TuffGrip has a Shore A 88 (ASTM D224) hardness with a 250-300% (ASTM D412) elongation rating. It has excellent impact, abrasion and corrosion resistance, and provides a high level of skid resistance, sound deadening, and vibration absorption. Its formulation is extremely flexible while maintaining its integrity under repeated flexing, regardless of film thickness. It offers a proven track record of saving businesses hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment repair, maintenance, and replacement.
