This is a Non-Yellowing, Clear Tough Coat. It is a water-based wipe on sealer and is easily applied with a damp lint free cloth and dries to a matte finish.
When to use:
Perfect for those high traffic surfaces such as table tops, kitchen cabinet doors, kitchen islands, backs of chairs or any areas that you think could potentially show wear and tear. If applying to a recently painted surface, allow 12-24 hours of drying time before applying. For best results, use with a damp lint free rag and apply two coats 2-4 hours apart. In humid areas, longer drying times may be required.
Important to note: You can easily paint over it anytime if you change your mind.
More tips about our Tough Coat.
Be sure to gently mix your Tough Coat prior to using it as the matting agent and other ingredients may settle to the bottom. Do not shake vigorously ( as with any poly-type top coat ) as this will cause air bubbles in your piece that are difficult to remove once applied.When applied on mid to dark paint colors it may show streaks where the edge of the brush stroke was…only a very thin coat using a sponge or our applicator will give you a consistent appearance. This is due to water vapour that may be trapped (within the thicker edge of the brush stroke ) Tough Coat and is visible on dark colors in particular. Should streaking occur, you can simply apply the paint over top and leave it as is. A nice thin coat of our Natural colour in the SFO (see below ) can be alot more forgiving on darker colours.We have what we call a “Tough Coat Sandwich”. You paint first, then use Tough Coat, then paint again and your project will be beyond durable! This is only recommended for very high traffic surfaces.
