Speaker Cabinet Coating – DuraTex® Spray Grade: Black
DuraTex® is America’s #1 Speaker Cabinet and Road Case Coating that’s easy to apply, beautiful and tough. It’s water based so application and cleanup is easy and requires NO solvents. DuraTex® Spray Grade requires no special primers and is easily applied by Hopper Gun, Airless Sprayer, HVLP Pressure Pot Spray System or roller.
DuraTex® has tremendous adhesion to wood and other substrates. It can be sprayed or roller applied to create a tough, beautiful, weather resistant and easily maintained textured or smooth surface. DuraTex® was designed to provide beauty and protection to wood speaker cabinets, road cases, flight cases and other applications at up to 100 square feet per gallon in a two-coat application (or up to 200 square feet in a one- coat application).
DuraTex® is a blend of highly technical polymers, and special LOW V.O.C coalescents for creating beautiful high relief spatter textures.

- Solids by Weight: 44% / 63%
- Solids by Volume: 40% / 51%

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.

I have to say this is one of the best paint products i have used on my custom speaker cases . It gives it the same identical look like the EAW, JBL SRX, AND TURBO SOUND pro audio speakers.
