  • 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

Tuff Coat rubberized deck and dock coating
I recently used Tuff Coat MP10 primer and medium gray rubberized coating to refinish the bow and gunwales on a 1983 aluminum boat. The products were easy to apply and performed well. I have already recommended Tuff Coat to a friend with a slippery cargo trailer ramp.

Did not stick
I applied product and let dry for over 3 days and as soon as it got wet it started wrinkling and tearing and coming up. Maybe a water based product should get wet ?

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.

What would you recommend to use on the concrete around my pool steps to provide a non-slip smooth surface to sit on by the steps?
Angie G on Feb 27, 2019
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 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!
Are there any issues with yellowing if I choose the white tuff coat?
Gary R on Apr 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great question! We have not heard any issues of yellowing over time with the White colored Tough Coat.
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.
Can tough coat be applied to marine plywood?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2018

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.

jjalt on May 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have only used this product on plywood and aluminum in my Duck boat. It's working great, but we are very hard on it. IE 80 pound lab, decoy bag, mud n sand on our boots etc........
Consult Tuffcoat, your deck having stain on it the product might not adhear to the wood
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’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!

Do I strip the glue from the carpet off of the aluminum or go directly over it?
Roduner on Nov 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I know it's a lot of work to strip the glue off the floor before applying the primer and Tuff Coat, but it needs to be a clean surface for the proper adhesion of the product. Be sure to use the water based metal primer MP-10.
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!
If water lays on it does it keep the water from seeping through a deck?
Sandra P on Dec 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I’ve been very impressed with this product. It doesn’t seem as though any water leaks thru I did the whole inside my boat and it cleans up nicely. In order to really know for a fact I would have to remove my deck to find proof but again I don’t believe it leaks thru. I put 2 Heavy coats on it

Desperado on Dec 10, 2019

I will buy it again.
I have a concrete pool deck that has some texture in it. It is slippery when it gets wet. Can I use Tuff Coat on this type of surface?
Frank P on Nov 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I put it on a boat floor so as far as water it is fine . When it comes to the surface to put it on you’ll have to ask manufacturer.I would think as long as you used the correct primer it would be fine.
I am thinking about putting this on a metal grill guard/ bumper? Do I need to primer it first?
Seamer on Nov 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hey Trent, Great question! Yes you will want to use the primer. The primer helps the deck coating adhere to the surface you are applying it to. If you have any other questions, please give us a call at (866) 633-7961.
I have a fiberglass fish/ski boat which currently has carpet on the decks but is fiberglass with heavy metal flake paint underneath. Do I need the primer before applying the Tuff Coat non stick paint? Also, is there any additional prep required before prime/paint?
Hank T on Sep 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hey Hank, applying Tuff Coat Primer before the Tuff Coat Deck Coating will help the Deck Coating adhere to the deck surface. Before priming and painting, be sure to clean the area well. Sand the area first and clean up any sanding residue. For a clean finish use masking tape so primer and paint do not get on surfaces you do not want covered, more detailed preparations will ensure a more clean and detailed job! Allow the primer to dry for approximately 24 hours (this depends on the temperature outside and the humidity) before you apply the Tuff Coat Deck Coating. If you have any further questions our number is (866) 633-7961.

John P on Sep 5, 2019

Can I use Tuff Coat on the bottom of my polyethylene boat? As in the bottom that’s in the water? Also will it seal any cracks that may leak?
Preston Loy on Aug 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No it will not seal leaks, and not a good idea to use under the waterline. This is not a below waterline paint.
Can I use this to resurface the floor of a shower? Is it easy to do? How do you determine and the achieve the texture you want?
NANCY B on Aug 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Nancy, you could use this material as a non-skid surface in a shower, but it is not designed to fill/prevent leaks. The application of the material is easy to do. For your application, I would look at the medium or the fine texture for non-slip purposes. Thank you!
On my current coating, I have 1" wide strip all around the decks and the deck hardware in the same color without the nonskid surface. this looks very clean and neat, can this be done with your product? Thank you in advance for your time.

How will this hold up in a dog kennel. Will it repel urine? Will anything penetrate through it? Thanks,
Rhonda T on Jun 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Rhonda, this is a great question that we do not have a great answer for. Short term exposure is not an issue at all, but we cannot speak for regular long-term exposure in these conditions. You might try reaching out to Tuff Coat directly. Thank you!
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?
Lou S on May 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Lou, no primer is not needed between coats as long as you add the additional coats in the proper amount of time per Tuff Coats Instructions. Thank you!
