CLEVELAND (Sept. 4, 2019) – The next generation Tuff Surface Premium Texture Finish from Sherwin-Williams delivers an even more appealing knockdown, splatter or orange peel texture finish to hide imperfections, helping to create inviting spaces and save professionals time. The mildew-resistant coating is easily applied with airless and conventional texture spray equipment to deliver lasting results, ideal for hotels and other high-traffic spaces.

Excellent “hang” properties keep Tuff Surface clinging to the wall until it is knocked down to the desired texture.
