Our non-yellowing water-based Tough Coat comes in 2 sheens, matte and gloss. Perfect for those high traffic surfaces such as tabletops.  Easy to apply using a sponge for a smooth application adding extra durability and increased sheen to your painted pieces. 

Do not use over medium to darker colours as it will show streaks, this is water vapour trapped within the tough coat and is visible on dark colours in particular. Should streaking occur, you can simply apply the paint over top and leave it as is. 

This is known as the “Tough Coat Sandwich”. It has Paint first, then Tough Coat, then Paint and it is beyond durable! This is only recommended for very high traffic surfaces

Use the Natural” colour All in One Finishing Oil as a substitute to avoid streaking and to provide an extra durable strong topcoat over Fusion Mineral Paint over high traffic areas like kitchen cabinets or tabletops, even flooring! 

A third option to avoid streaks when top coating dark colours is to tint the Tough Coat with just a bit of the colour being covered.

500ml covers about 75 sq.ft (7m2).

Clean up is easy with soap and warm water.
