Maximum Protection

Tough Coat is an incredibly strong, water-based sealant. This is a very popular choice for people that want to seal kitchen cabinets, outdoor furniture, and table tops to make them water-resistant, scratch-resistant, and better able to stand up to heavy wear and tear! As our strongest sealant, it offers maximum protection that will preserve your furniture’s surfaces for years to come.

How does Tough Coat differ from Clear Coat?

Tough Coat offers the highest durability and requires only two coats for maximum protection, whereas Clear Coat will require up to four coats. Tough Coat is VOC-compliant and best suited for kitchen table tops, kitchen cabinets and outdoor furniture. Clear Coat, on the other hand is 100% VOC-free and requires less of a learning curve to use. If you are not experienced with applying clear finishes, we suggest Clear Coat because it is more user-friendly than Tough Coat.

If you’d like to use a 100% natural product with light protection, try using Wax or Hemp Oil.

Tough Coat Product Features:

  • Adds extremely durable protection for high-traffic projects such as kitchen cabinets
  • Adds a beautiful satin sheen
  • Water-based and non-yellowing
  • Suitable for exterior projects
  • Eco-friendly and VOC-compliant

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is very important to make sure that you let your last coat of paint dry for at least 24 hours before proceeding with Tough Coat, otherwise you may end up with a streaky finish. If your work space is cold or humid, you’ll want to wait at least 72 hours so your paint coats have plenty of time to dry all the way through.

Excellent

The Tough Coat went on smooth as silk and I applied 3 coats to the top of a kitchen table with no sanding in between coats. I am so happy I found Country Chic.

Top Notch Tough Protection!

I have learned to LOVE this product, and use it for sealing and protecting MANY of my furniture AND decor items! Although a lil' tricky to work with... once you get the hang of it, this product works seamlessly and pleasantly! Well worth taking the time to get comfortable with! Whether I'm looking for EXTRA protection for high-traffic furniture pieces OR I'm sealing decor items for protection from spatters, fingerprints and water... TOUGH COAT by Country Chic Paint is my go-to product EVERY time! I highly recommend this product!

Great

I applied the tough coat with a fairly firm foam roller. It was easy to apply. I like the finish it has, not too shiny but not matte either

Gives that extra protection

Country Chic paint is very hardy so the tough coat is not always needed BUT I do love that extra sense of security on items that tend to get a lot of daily use. Easy to apply, I love it for tables or any surface that is going to have a lot of use (thinking glasses that could leave potential water rings etc.)

The best

First time using this product. Protected my finished table top exactly as described. I will definitely use for those heavily used pieces.
