  • What prep work is required before using Tuff Coat?

    The Surface must be cleaned thoroughly. If residue is left in the area you wish to apply Tuff Coat, you can run into adhesive problems during application. Tuff Coat recommends "Zep Industrial Purple" as a de-greaser and surface cleaner. After the surface is cleaned, Tuff Coat Primer can be applied.

  • Is the primer required?

    Absolutely, if you are applying Tuff Coat for the first time, the primer must be applied before Tuff Coat Rubberized Coating is applied. Tuff coat will last up to 7-10 years, if you are re-applying Tuff Coat to an area that has Tuff Coat already, one coat is all you?ll need for another 7-10 years.

  • Does the primer need to dry before application of Paint?

    Yes. Primer dries in about 4 hours, for wet concrete surfaces Tuff Coat recommends letting the primer dry overnight.

  • Do I have to use the Tuff Coat Roller?

    If you plan on applying Tuff coat with a roller, the Tuff Coat Roller is required. It has a unique honeycomb design that spreads rubber coating evenly. The Tuff Coat Roller is very durable and can be rinsed and re-used numerous times. The roller is designed with a plastic core so the roller can be cut to size for your specific need. Generic rollers from the hardware store will not disperse the rubber properly.
    As an alternative to rolling, Tuff coat you can also be applied using an Under Coating or Cup Gun, Drywall Hopper Gun or a Texture Spray Rig for bigger projects.

  • Will the Tuff Coat Fade? If so how long will it last?

    Tuff coat will last up to 7-10 years, if you are re-applying Tuff Coat to an area that has Tuff Coat already, one coat is all you?ll need for re-application.

  • What materials is this designed for?

    Tuff Coat UT-100F is designed for Wood and Fiberglass

  • How many cans will I need to cover my boat?

    One Gallon of Tuff Coat will cover approximately 50 sq/ft of area

  • Should I use gloves or masks when working with Tuff Coat?

    A mask is not necessary when applying Primer and Tuff Coat Rubberized corner, when cleaning and prepping the surface for primer a mask is suggested. When applying Tuff Coat gloves are a good idea since Tuff Coat dries very quickly and may be a challenge to wash off.

  • At what temperatures should Tuff Coat be applied?

    Tuff Coat recommends temperatures exceeding 40 degrees Fahrenheit

Came damaged/long shipping process.
Altogether seems like a good product, unfortunately after waiting 2 weeks to receive the gallon of tuff coat it came damaged. Dented and slightly leaking. Spent nearly $200 between paint and primer. Extremely disappointed to finally receive a damaged product.

Great Product
I applied it on two different boat floors this year. Definitely take some time in the prep work to get the best results. Adhered to both the wood and aluminum portion of the boats without issue.

Tuff Coat worked great
Stuff is tuff as hell. Put it in a small 13' aluminum boat... Was not made for aluminum but used it anyway its holding up just GREAT. This stuff is awesome. I didn't need to use special roller for rough surface but did anyway. IM HAPPY! You will be too... Just give it a GOOD CLEAN SURFACE and let the stuff do its job. Like building a house U NEED A GOOD FOUNDATION.

I will need to cover a area 6 ft by 17 ft how much will I need ?
Jamie G on Dec 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: One gallon of Tuff Coat will cover approximately 50 sq. ft. of area and one quart of Tuff coat Primer will cover approximately 60 sq. ft. of area. You should need at least two, possibly three, gallons of Tuff Coat and 2 quarts of primer. I hope this helps!
Can you add other paint/colorant to this to change the color of the tuff-coat?
Danny on Mar 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can absolutely modify the color of the Tuff Coat by adding external paints or pigments. The only important hook is that because Tuff Coat is water based, the colorant that is added also needs to be water based. Hope this helps!

I have a work barge and the steel floor has red primer on it can I use tuff coat over top of it?
Charlie B on Dec 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That's a great question! Tuff Coat highly suggests you use their primer. As far as their primer sticking to the current primer you have on the deck, we're not certain if that would work or not. For more information on what would be involved in making this happen please reach out to us directly.

Can I buy Tuff Coat in light texture instead of medium texture? I have young grandkids and this would go on the houseboat swim platform.
Bill G on Apr 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: After having Tuff Coat on my deck for 3 months I have found Tuff Coat to work as advertised. It works as an aggressive non-skid yet is easy on the feet. I have not found it to be abrasive with normal use. Not bad on the knees either, as normal non-skid is.
I have a 4' X 8' deck. Will one gallon be enough? and how thick does it need to be? Do i need primer or use it straight on the plywood?
Ronnie D on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ronnie, One gallon should certainly be enough to cover a 4 x 8 area. You will need to use the CP-10 primer in order to have the best adhesion for the paint. Thanks Ronnie!
I’m confused, you have hardener, primer and tuff coat so I need all three? What’s the process then primer, hardner then tuff coat?
Bryan D on Sep 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Bryan, Tuff Coat has a primer (which is a two part primer that you mix together before applying it to the prepped surface), and then there is the paint. There is not a separate hardener for Tuff Coat. Thank you!
Some of the paint/finish on my boat is wearing and you can see the clear fibers on the wood. I think all of the paint is thinning, so I wanted to refinish it with this. Do I need to sand the old paint off or anything? I know I should use primer but I’m unsure about whether it will go onto paint. Thanks!
A shopper on Apr 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great question! You would need to prep the area for painting to make it smooth by sanding or filling and areas, but removing the paint is not necessary to create a tight bond. We do recommend applying the primer prior to painting.
will this product adhear too boat plywood floor that had several layer of expoxy resin applied too it or do i not apply the resin over the adx plywood?
dennis f on Jun 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I can’t answer your question specifically, however the primer provided is any parks see based coating. If you plan to use the primer I feel confident it would work but it may work without the primer..
I have 19-8 Carolina Skiff. I would like to paint the deck using the Tuff coat Rubberized Non Skid in a life blue color but I would like to paint the inside walls white. My question is do I need to use the non skid paint for the side walls or should I use a different type of paint .What would you recommend?
Keith Y on Jul 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hey Keith, great question. You can do either. Tuff Coat is great for decks, but can be used on any suitable surface. However, surface prep for Tuff Coat Vs. other marine paints may be different. Thanks!
Can this product be put on a stained deck attached to my house,or is this product only for boats and decks by water?

Rhonda T on Jun 4, 2019

I have an Xpress boat that the non skid surface paint is peeling in areas. I would like to repaint the entire floor and deck of the boat. Will I have to remove ALL the OLD non skid surface or just the areas where it is peeling?
LESHIA T on Jun 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Leshia, I would recommend removing all of the old non-skid before putting down the Tuff Coat. The tuff coat will bond to wat it is applied to, but if the old non-skid is peeling up then the tuff coat will come up with it.
If applying more than one coat is primer needed between each coat?

I want to create a custom color, something in the direction of the brown on the chart. What color should I choose for the base to start tinting?
Robert C on May 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Robert, this is a great question. We had a customer who ordered the wrong color recently and was able to correct it by taking his can in to a Sherwin Williams. I would think that you would start with white and modify from there, but you might be best off contacting Tuff Coat directly to get the answer to this question. Thank you!

Jay B on Apr 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Good morning I bought this paint for my deck ramps for my dogs it is a great paint I know it’s for boats but it really looks good on my ramps we got to cans and only used one and a1/3 of the other one it goes on thick but make sure you use a primer with it. We put a new deck on and you can’t tell the difference from the deck color and the ramp color, I’m very pleased with the way it turned out. I do have pictures of the ramp painted and the stairs that are deck boards.
Need primer for outdoor application would that be the water base primer ?
Gerard on Apr 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Gerard, Great Question!!! We offer two types of primers the CP-10 which is a primer that you would want to use on wood, concrete and fiberglass. Then there is the MP-10 which is what you would want to use when applying Tuff Coat paint to metal. Both in fact will be fine for an outdoor application.
