Test Drive DuraTex® Roller Grade before buying a whole gallon. OR… it’s just the right size for a smaller project or a re-coat.
We got creative and found a way to put the DuraTex® in a small pint container and pack it in a box along with a texture roller so you’ll have everything you need to give us a real good Test Run or to do that rehab you’ve wanted to do without having to buy a whole gallon.
The Kit is just right to do 10 to 12 square feet of speaker cabinet surface ~ enough for a couple 18” x 12” x 12” cabinets with two full coats for each cabinet (or 20 – 25 square feet of area in a single coat).
The price for the Pint Size Kit includes shipping charges within the USA.
DuraTex® is a high-performance protective texture coating with tremendous adhesion to wood and other substrates. DuraTex® requires no special primers and is easily applied with a brush or our textured foam roller to create a tough, beautiful, weather resistant and easily maintained texture surface. A smooth foam roller should be used if a smooth surface is desired. DuraTex® was designed to provide beauty and protection to wood speaker cabinets, road cases, flight cases and other applications. DuraTex® is a blend of highly technical polymers, and special LOW V.O.C coalescents for creating beautiful high relief spatter textures.

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.

excellent product. Rolls on just as described for the look that is on the Carvin TRx series. Can’t go wrong for restoring a cabinet. Just be aware that if you have a high-end, well-made, old cabinet like mine (a 10-20 year old PAS subwoofer pair), that the prep on the cabinet itself (pulling carpet, plastering/filling holes, sanding, etc.) can be quite a job if you don’t have any experience or helpful equipment such as shop vacs, electric box sanders. I would recommend a cheap 6" plaster tool and at least a quart of plaster, depending on the cabinet. If you have a cheaper cabinet, such as my Technical Pro 1801 powered sub, the carpet should come off relatively easily in comparison. Advice on the internet for pulling carpet is to set the cabinet in the sun for a few hours (or carefully heat with a heat gun) and it should loosen up the old carpet. If its a tough pull, try a good pair of tongue-and-groove pliers.
This product is excellent. Very easy to apply, great appearance and tough! I would recommend to any speaker builder hobbyist or pro.

I bought this trial pack to finish a customer’s amp cabinet. He did not want any of the Tolex-style finishes so we settled on this product. I was amazed at how easily it was to develop a great texture. Two coats plus a little touch up and it was done. I used black satin Krylon on the inside of the amp cabinet and it blended perfectly with the black color of the Duratex. That spray paint can also be used to touch up the Duratex itself as it is the exact same shade of black. It’s definitely a winner in my book.
