As a 100% acrylic paint, Fusion™ is extremely hard wearing just on its own (after 21 days it has fully ‘cured’ and reached its full durability), however there are always those projects that get a lot more daily wear and tear and need that little bit extra protection.
Tough Coat™ is perfect for those high traffic surfaces such as table tops and kitchen cupboards. Our non-yellowing water-based wipe on sealer is easily applied with a damp lint free cloth, or brush for detailed areas, and dries to either a beautiful matte or satin gloss finish.
SELECTION OF TOP COAT:
Please note Tough Coat is a water-based top coat, perfect for use over paler colours due to its non-yellowing properties. Top coats can, however, draw tannins through a painted surface if unprimed. We recommend using a primer over raw wood surfaces if you are intending on painting in a pale colour. When choosing a top coat for dark colours, water-based top coats may cause cloudiness unless applied in a very thin, consistent coat. Oil-based top coats are preferable over dark colours – Beeswax Finish or Hemp Oil will add some durability, or select Stain & Finishing Oil if high durability is required. Please note oil-based products take longer to dry and cure so should not be reapplied too soon after first application.
Shake gently before use to ensure the product is thoroughly mixed. 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 pad and apply two coats 2-4 hours apart. In humid areas, longer drying times may be required.
Lint-Free Microfibre Applicator Pads are perfect for applying and wiping off Tough Coat.
A 500ml bottle of Tough Coat™ will cover approximately 7 sq.mtr. (75 sq.ft.)
