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.

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.
