BENJAMIN MOORE INTRODUCES ULTRA SPEC® SCUFF-X® AS THE INDUSTRY'S FIRST SCUFF-RESISTANT PAINT

Revolutionary Formula Provides Long-Lasting Durability in High-Traffic Commercial Spaces


MONTVALE, NJ - May 31, 2017 - Benjamin Moore, North America’s favorite paint, color and coatings brand, today introduced Ultra Spec SCUFF-X - the first-of-its-kind, one-component interior latex paint engineered specifically to resist scuffmarks in high-traffic, commercial environments. SCUFF-X provides superior scuff-resistance to two-component coatings, without the strong odor, pre-mixing, short pot-life and application difficulties associated with similar products.

"Our proprietary scuff-resistant technology minimizes repainting, retouching and cleaning, while offering easy application, low odor and quick dry-time," said Alfredo Valiente, Benjamin Moore Brand Manager. "The Ultra Spec line of coatings is the trusted solution for commercial contractors and introducing SCUFF-X to the portfolio will dramatically improve how professionals maintain the busiest areas of their facilities."

Recommended areas for use include high-traffic, commercial spaces such as hallways, stairwells, lobbies, offices, gymnasiums, locker rooms, public restrooms, retail fitting rooms and much more. The cutting-edge formulation enables the coating to be low-VOC, eligible for LEED® v4 credit, and CHPS certified.

SCUFF-X is available in gallons and five-gallon pails in more than 3,500 Benjamin Moore colors and three finishes: Matte, Eggshell and Satin. To learn more about Ultra Spec SCUFF-X or to locate a Benjamin Moore retailer, visit www.benjaminmoore.com/SCUFF-X.
