Toughen up

“Latex paint is easy to work with and clean up, but on abuse-prone cabinets it could use some added muscle. Mix this additive with water-based paint (32 ounces treats 2 gallons of paint), and the ceramic beads inside bind to the resins in the paint .The result is a water-based paint that protects like an oil-based coating, with improved hardness that resists dings, scratches and chips.” - This Old House Magazine, September 2016 Issue


Whether it’s kids, pets or simply passionate cooking, kitchen cabinets take a beating. Hard Coat helps protect like oil-based coatings. It helps protects from wear and tear, improving the lifespan of new paint.

Coincidentally, the former award-winning Oil Bond is also an excellent additive for painting kitchen cabinets. Oil Bond helps paint grip directly on to oily or glossy finishes without sanding or priming, saving time and effort.

Together, Oil Bond and Hard Coat make painting kitchen cabinets easier, faster, more protected and longer-lasting.
