Scuffs and scratches will ruin any paint job. They can happen at anytime especially on lightly colored walls where dirt and scratches show up very easily. This is especially true when it comes to areas that see a lot of foot traffic such as stairways and entrances. Trying to keep an airbnb or other short term rentals looking fresh and clean can be especially challenging. There will be plenty of people on a daily basis and they will be carrying bulky luggage that can leave marks on the walls. The same is true for the walls in offices, hospitals, schools, hotels and other commercial buildings due to the fact that they can get dinged or scratched by equipment, furniture and other things. Now, there is a quick and easy fix that will protect your walls and woodwork.
How Scuff-X Works
Ultra Spec Scuff-X Latex Paint is scuff resistant, durable and can be washed down much more easily, so you and your family can enjoy your home without worrying about the walls.
Ultra Spec Scuff-X is formulated with scuff and stain-resistant technology, that provides the ultimate protection in scuff and stain-resistance, allowing for the ultimate washability for long-term durability. The line is available in 3 finishes: Matte, Eggshell, and Satin; and is available in a wide range of color choices numbering in the thousands. “This is probably the most durable one-component paint you can buy,” says Keith Meyn with Texas Paint. In our YouTube video, he demonstrates how other latex paint gets easily scuffed by a black wheel taken off a piece of luggage. He shows us how the wheel barely leaves a mark on the Scuff-X paint which he simply washes off. “If the paint is used in commercial buildings such as hotels, hospitals or other medical facilities […] you paint it one time and you have maybe a 10 year life expectancy. For you and I at home, never paint again,” added Meyn.
Scuff-X proprietary formula is designed to dry quickly, within 2 – 3 hours after the application of the first coat, for minimal down time on the job. Each gallon of paint covers approximately 350 – 400 square feet and has low VOCs. This product line qualifies for LEED v4 Credit and is CHPS Certified, which are green building practices.
