DuraTex® is America’s #1 Speaker Cabinet Coating designed to provide beauty and protection to wood speaker cabinets and road cases. It’s a superior performance Texture Coating that’s easy to apply, beautiful and tough.
DuraTex® has tremendous adhesion to wood and other substrates. It rolls on easily with our special texture roller to create a tough, beautiful, weather resistant and easily maintained texture surface. For a smooth finish, apply with a smooth foam roller. DuraTex® will cover up to 100 square feet per gallon in multiple coats or up to 200 square feet per gallon in a single coat application.
DuraTex® is a blend of highly technical polymers, and special LOW V.O.C coalescents for creating beautiful high relief, durable textures. DuraTex® requires no special primers because it’s self priming.

TECHNICAL DATA (BLACK/WHITE):
- V.O.C.: 0.46#/Gal. (55g/L) as packaged
- Solids by Weight: 44% / 63%
- Solids by Volume: 40% / 51%
- Viscosity: Roller Grade=25Kcps, Spray Grade=15Kcps
- Wt per Gallon: 9.0# / 11.5#
- Cleanup: Soap and Water on fresh material, and Xylene or Toluene on dried material
All substrates must be clean and dry with no oils, silicones, waxes or other contaminants. Fill holes in wood substrate with Elmer’s Carpenter’s Color Change Wood Filler to prevent potential adhesion issues. Stay away from certain wood fillers that stay soft & rubbery when they are fully cured because there is a chance that DuraTex may not adhere to these types of fillers. DO NOT USE A POROUS TYPE OF WOOD FILLER AS THESE COULD CAUSE POTENTIAL CRACKS IN THE DURATEX COATING. We recommend doing a spot adhesion test to ensure there are no issues with the DuraTex coating. Sand surfaces before application and remove all sanding residue. Bare wood surfaces need not be primed; however, a base coat of DuraTex® can be applied as its own primer. Please contact us with any questions.
Apply roller grade with our textured foam roller to evenly coat the surface if a textured surface is desired. A heavy first coat followed by a lighter second coat will give a milder texture. A heavy second coat will produce a more aggressive texture. Adding a small amount of water to the product will reduce the texture profile and can provide more of an orange peel texture. If a smooth finish is desired, use a smooth foam roller to apply and be mindful of any roller nap overlap marks.
Allow all materials to dry thoroughly through air drying or forced drying in a baking oven. Do not exceed temperatures of 150°F for drying. Heating speeds up the curing process of DuraTex® but normal air drying will accomplish the same finished result over time. (Oven heating is optional, but facilitates rapid production throughput.) Do not apply this product to damp surfaces or when surface temperature is or will be below 60°F. and when Relative Humidity is above 70%.
To store containers that have been previously opened, spray a fine mist of water onto the coating surface in the container before resealing the lid. This raises humidity levels in the container and can help prevent the product drying or skinning over in the container.

Purchased this product for some large PA style garage speakers I built. This is probably the best roll-on product I have ever used. No scent, dries fast, cleanup is a breeze and the texture with the roller they provide (separately) is perfect, it looks as though it is sprayed on. One gallon will also go a very long way. I was able to cover four cabinets (two each – 22"H x 28"W x 18"D and 42"H x 15"W x 17"D) with two heavy coats and used less than half a gallon. Very durable as well, HIGHLY recommended.

Two words – freakin’ awesome! I can’t count the number of cabinets, new and replacing that old nasty fuzzy carpet (actually increase value of some refurbs I’ve done), and other projects I’ve used DuraTex on – I even rolled it on a bed tool box and hard tonneau cover I built for my truck – Looking good after Texas summer heat and now ice and snow without a crack or fade yet – if it ever needs a touch up it’s a just a few roller strokes away. Don’t think I’ll ever go back to flat black paint or carpet again. Only wish it came in colors – an olive drab and dark green (love to do do a camo look), medium gray, navy, a dark burgundy maybe ? Water clean up and tough durability make it a great product!
Great really great!

This is a very very great product. It goes on easy, covers well, and the final product looks AMAZING!!! Definitely has won me over and several others who have seen our speaker cabinets and amp racks. Great customer service, shipping, price……everything is spot on. Thanks again
This stuff is super fun and very easy to work with. Just be sure to follow the instructions and prep all the surfaces correctly before refinishing. Beyond that, low humidity and hot temperatures really help this stuff work its magic. It tacks up quickly which means jobs can be done in a day or two if necessary.
