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.

PLEASE NOTE: Do NOT apply Wax, Hemp Oil, or other oil-based products before applying Tough Coat.

Lives up to its name

I used Tough Coat on a picnic table I refinished. It really is tough, I had a small spot on an edge that had bubbled and its so hard I will have to sand it to fix it. Tough Coat went on smooth with a foam brush.

Easy application

I really liked the tough coat. I chose this because I knew the end table I was painting would get banged up in my daughters room. My only issue was that it bubbled a bit when applying, but I’m sure one of my kids shook the jar. I would definitely buy again.

Did not yellow like other products I have used

Easy to use...just have to make sure it is a THIN layer so that drips don't pop up. Seems to be protective so far. Will use again!

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.
