Tough Enough™ Clear Top Coat
What it is:
Tough Enough is simply VIVILON™ with a unique high molecular weight resin added to provide enhanced color and gloss retention, extreme flexibility and enhanced adhesion over hard to adhere to nonporous substrates.

Tough Enough provides excellent graffiti protection as well.

This resin also brings excellent diesel, kerosene and gasoline resistance properties to the coating. In all other respects, such as restoring faded paint, fiberglass gelcoat, metals and aluminum, stainless steel, copper or Hardi-Board siding, Tough Enough performs like regular VIVILON™.

Where is it used:

To restore and protect painted metal, clear-clad, anodized or galvanized aluminum, stainless steel, fiberglass, brass or copper;

Or, on ANY surface where graffiti resistance is desired;

Or, anywhere absolute maximum adhesion over hard to adhere to surfaces is needed;

Or, on any surface subjected to high flexural stress where optimum flexibility of the coating film is required.

As is the case with every Vivilon Coating product, Tough Enough is available in the standard high gloss finish, in a semi-gloss, satin or completely matte finish in any quantity without any extra cost. The way you want it is the way we will make it for you!
