Tuff Coat™ Rubberized Non-Skid Coating
Sprayed in a 17 ft Lowe aluminum boat am very pleased with the color and texture. Have not used it as of yet and am looking forward to finding out how it does in the south GA heat. the olive color is just a shade liter than the original boat color but am satisfied with the deference

First, I'd like to say I read every reveiw posted here. There are some truths and some not so truthful. Whomever stated the color is off is correct. The olive color is a seafoam green. So didn't match my olive drab tracker 1542. The product does indeed need a drill attachment mixer, (5 bucks) as it is very thick and the agraget settles on the bottom of the can. I applied the coating with a brush with ease. I can't see how this will peel like some comments. Multiple thin coatings is the way to go. I feel the people having problems are appling like 1/8th inch coatings. If you need 1/8th inch coatings, use 4 or five coatings. I used 2 and liked the results. Also, I used this on presure treated plywood not metal. I used the recommended primer and that seemed to lay a nice base coat down for the tuff coat to adhere to. All in all I am very satified with the performance and whould highly recommend.

Better than paint or carpet
Looks great, just put down on plywood. Bought chop gun to spray on deck. You need two coats prep of deck is very important.

Using this product on all inside surfaces of a 14' aluminum boat. I have read many reviews searching for application experiences. Many stated to buy the roller specifically designed for the coating and others suggested spraying. Though I have a compressor, I had no experience spraying and decided to purchase the roller. I used the recommended primer and did everything required for a good application. The primer was thin and had no issues applying. The coating was a different story. This turned out to be extremely difficult. When the manufacturer states do not roll over what is already rolled down... They mean it. After just 5-10 seconds it already starts to adhere to itself and if you re-roll an area, it will come up peeling. After the first coat and 2 hrs later, it looked terrible. At this point I was reconsidering my purchase. For the 2nd coat I decided to purchase a texture sprayer and with no experience, attempted this method with nothing to lose. This was the best decision ever. I sprayed the whole boat in 10 minutes with a very even coat and it looks great. This was not difficult at all and I would recommend anyone to bypass the roller application and start spraying. I used 2/3 of a gallon with the 1st coat using a roller (with poor results) and 1/3 of a gallon spraying 2nd coat (with great results). I purchased 2 gallons and sprayed the 3rd and 4th coat, though not necessary, just wanted to use up what was left. The coating has the consistency of pancake batter so there was very little over-spray to worry about. Sprayed in the driveway with no wind. and dried very fast. The product looks great and feels like rubber, durable and is non-skid as advertised. Would definitely use this again.
