Following on from the two years establishment program in NZ of the interior plasterboard finish Sheetrock brand Tuff-Hide, USG is in the process of launching this product in Australia.

Tuff-Hide is a unique new development from USG's gypsum technology. It is a coating designed especially for interior application over plasterboard for a superior, consistent Level 5 finish prior to painting.

Features of Tuff-Hide:

· Spray applied skim and primer in a single high build coat

· Dries to a tough, durable, hard, abrasion resistant super white matt finish

· Can be tinted for ceiling applications or for deep tone wall colours

· No or minimal sanding substantially reduces dust and project completion times

· Assists critical light situations

· Can only be applied by USG trained and approved accredited applicators

Accredited applicators will be established for Level 5 finish requirements in due course. Currently applicators are available in Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales.
