Tuff Coat Nonskid Coating FAQs

Q: My existing flooring is dirty and damaged. Can I apply Tuff Coat directly over the old flooring, or will I have to remove the old flooring?
A:
If your flooring is dirty or damaged, it's recommended that you remove it and thoroughly clean the area to ensure proper adhesion.

Q: What is the expected coverage?
A:
One quart of primer and one gallon of Tuff Coat (applied in two coats) should cover a maximum of 40-50 sq. ft. for most non-heavy commercial applications.

Q: Do I have to use the Tuff Coat Application Roller for both the primer and the Tuff Coat Nonskid Coating?
A:
No, you can brush or roll on the primer with a regular paint brush or roller. The Tuff Coat Roller (item #73215) is only required when applying the Tuff Coat Nonskid Coating.

Q: What should I use to clean the area prior to application?
A:
Use a commercial-quality degreaser or laundry detergent with a scrub brush. Make sure all grease, oil, and other contaminants are removed from the area where Tuff Coat will be applied.

Q: Can I apply Tuff Coat with a sprayer? Can I use my HVLP (High-Volume Low-Pressure) gun to apply Tuff Coat?
A:
Only use the spray gun recommended by Tuff Coat - Superior Brand Spraying-Mantis Handheld Hopper Gun. For larger projects, Tuff Coat recommends Graco Brand Tex-Spray Compact.

Q: Can I apply Tuff Coat to a painted surface?
A:
Yes, if the surface is not cracked or chipped and is structurally sound. To apply Tuff Coat to a painted surface, aggressively roughen the surface by sanding it with 36 or 40 grit sandpaper. The surface must be rough for proper adhesion. Clean all oils, grease, dirt, silicone, and other contaminants. Leave no residue. Prime with Epoxy Primer CP-10 (item #73216), then test a small area for adhesion. If adhesion is acceptable, then apply the Tuff Coat.

Q: Can I apply Tuff Coat to a steel or aluminum surface?
A:
Yes. All smooth metal surfaces should be cleaned and aggressively roughened by sanding with 36 or 40 grit sandpaper or by acid etching. Acid etching is recommended by the manufacturer. After roughening, clean and dry the metal surface, then prime with Metal Primer MP-10 (item #73217). Test a small area for adhesion before applying Tuff Coat. If adhesion is acceptable, then apply the Tuff Coat to the area.

Q: Can I apply Tuff Coat to plywood or treated lumber?
A:
Yes. New lumber needs no sanding, however old lumber should be sanded with 36 or 40 grit sandpaper. Make sure the surface is clean and completely dry. If applying to pressure-treated wood, be sure the wood has had sufficient drying before applying the primer or Tuff Coat. Prime the surface with Epoxy Primer CP-10 (item #73216). Test a small area for adhesion before applying Tuff Coat. If adhesion is acceptable, then apply the Tuff Coat to the area.

Q: I previously applied Tuff Coat to my boat and now need to repair an area. Can I apply Tuff Coat over existing product?
A:
Yes. If Tuff Coat ever becomes damaged, it can easily be repaired or coated over since the product bonds to itself. To repair, use a utility knife to remove all the damaged Tuff Coat. Then with the knife, make clean, sharp lines to establish a well-defined area for re-coating and eliminate any uneven edges. Sand the area with 36 or 40 grit sandpaper, so the new application can adhere well. Clean and dry the area, then prime with Epoxy Primer CP-10 (item #73216), before re-applying Tuff Coat.

Q: Are there any special requirements for maintaining the Tuff Coat finish?
A:
When cleaning Tuff Coat, do no use bleach or other caustic materials. For best results, clean Tuff Coat with a stiff deck brush and a general, all-purpose cleaner, such as Simple Green, TSP, laundry detergent, etc.

You can not go wrong with this product. When I found out this product was available to replace carpet this was a no brainer. Never understood why carpet was installed in a boat. However this is the best alternative!!

The only con during this process would be with the application roller, the full size roller was great for larger areas but it does not fit all nooks and cranny's. They don't have a 4" roller to reach in those areas. I used a normal paintbrush and worked fine because it picked up the granules without issue, I would not however user a normal 4" household roller, the granules do not pick up.

But all and all you can not go wrong with this product, this has saved me well over $1900 and I would do it over again!!

I used this for the front casting deck on my 18' aluminum bass boat. I sanded the whole deck, used the recommended primer, followed all directions, even used the roller they sell on here. I applied it a month ago, haven't taken the boat out since and already it is separating and peeling in the 90 degree angles. The flat deck area seems to be holding fine. I put new carpet in the rest of the boat but wanted to go with this since I throw a cast net a lot from the front deck. We'll see how it holds up through a season but more than likely I will just scrape it off and go back with all carpet.

    Comments about Overton's Overtons Tuff Coat Rubberized Nonskid Marine Coating, gallon:

    This product went on an aluminum pool deck that had multiple layers of glue for indoor / outdoor carpeting. I did not want to put carpet on again.
    This is not hot under your feet! We were also able to get it in a color that complements the pool! This also is non-slip!

                  Thank you for your question.
                  If you are asking about covering gelcoat cracks in the floor---I would first us a filler such as our 3m filler # 81513 before applying the Tuff Coat. While the Tuff Coat may initially fill and cover the existing cracks---they may eventually print through. To ensure a top quality job--fill the voids with appropriate filler before applying.

                  A:

                  Some cleaners will have a reaction of this sort. If this is an area that you had to use cleaner on before applying the tuff coat this could explain the bubbling occurrence. Unfortunately the best thing to do is to remove the coating from these areas and reapply it after washing the areas with water to remove any chemicals that may be present underneath.
