Tuff Cab PRO - MATT version (satin-matt finish)
Tuff Cab ® is a paint which has been specifically formulated to give a hard-wearing, durable, professional and attractive finish to loudspeakers. The coating is flexible yet scratch-resistant, highly durable, and is water-resistant when dry.
Intended for use on bare wood, plywood and MDF without the need for a primer, Tuff Cab ® is easy to use, and a variety of textured finishes can be achieved using standard rollers or HVLP spray systems, without the need for special equipment. Its environmentally friendly water-based composition needs no fume extraction, is easy to clean and dries at room temperature without oven-curing. The curing process can be accelerated and a harder wearing finish achieved by oven-curing, please see data sheet for further details. The coating can be wiped clean, and minor damage is easy to touch up.
Curing time varies with temperature - cold conditions can significantly increase the curing time, as can humidity. High humidity in tropical regions will require longer curing time. In europe, exposure to dry summer weather is the ideal way of curing the paint more rapidly, however we do not recommend painting in direct hot sunlight, as the paint will dry too rapidly, which may create a rough spiky surface from the roller, and the outer surface may dry quicker than the paint underneath, causing cracking on the surface. It's best to paint inside at normal room temperature and then leave the finished cabinets outside in the sun to dry/cure.
Standard (glossy) and Pro (satin matt) Tuff Cab ® is available in a wide and constantly expanding range of colours, with matches for many professional finishes, and giving the freedom to choose a colour to help your rig stand make an impact and stand out from the crowd - or let your installation subtlely complement its surroundings.
