Upgrade Alert: Sherwin-Williams Tuff Surface Premium Texture Finish Hides Imperfections for Lasting Results


CLEVELAND (September 4, 2019) – The next generation Tuff Surface Premium Texture Finish from Sherwin-Williams delivers an even more appealing knockdown, splatter or orange peel texture finish to hide imperfections, helping to create inviting spaces and save professionals time. The mildew-resistant coating is easily applied with airless and conventional texture spray equipment to deliver lasting results, ideal for hotels and other high-traffic spaces.

“Pros who work on projects in segments such as hospitality are asking for a coating that creates a scrubbable premium knockdown texture quickly and easily,” said Rick Watson, director of product information and technical services at Sherwin-Williams. “The next generation Tuff Surface coating does exactly that while covering up blemishes for striking results in every type of space, from a lobby to a gym.”

Tuff Surface hides various imperfections and is an excellent option for application over uneven or damaged sound surfaces. It is more reliable and cost-effective than traditional methods of creating textures that require a primer and topcoat. Excellent “hang” properties keep Tuff Surface clinging to the wall until it is knocked down to the desired texture.

Available in flat and eg-shel sheens, Tuff Surface is tintable and can be used as a level five finish. Tuff Surface Premium Texture Finish is ULGREENGUARD Gold certified for low chemical emissions into indoor air during product usage and meets the most stringent VOC regulations with <50 g/L VOC. The finish offers quality performance, especially over uneven or damaged surfaces, and has antimicrobial agents which inhibit mildew growth on the surface of the paint film.

Tuff Surface is available at Sherwin-Williams stores nationwide. For more information, visit www.Sherwin-Williams.com.
