Benjamin Moore’s SCUFF-X Makes a Good Impression with Scuff-Free Walls

Memory foam pillows. Pajama jeans. Novelty toasters that scorch the image of Ryan Gosling’s face into toasted bread. These are all genius inventions that we only wish we’d thought of – and here’s another: Benjamin Moore’s Ultra Spec® SCUFF-X™.

Built for commercial contractors and specifically engineered to resist scuffing before it starts, SCUFF-X is a high-performance latex coating made for hallways, stairwells, lobbies, gyms and other busy public spaces where walls tend to take a beating.

Now, we don’t like to casually throw around a word like “revolutionary,” but that’s exactly how we’ve come to think of SCUFF-X. Quite simply, it’s a game changer. This single-component paint is an industry first in the way it stands up to wear and tear in hotels and restaurants, schools and universities, offices, retail stores, hospitals and other health care facilities.

What we love most about this unique formula is that it delivers outstanding protection in the toughest areas, providing superior durability and scuff-resistant properties without the strong odor, pre-mixing, short pot life and other application issues that have been related in the past to similar products. It’s washable (it even withstands repeated washing!), easy to apply and quick to dry when a fast turnaround is needed. And because we can all appreciate that time is money, SCUFF-X promises to retain a high-quality appearance much longer and with minimal maintenance. Not only does it lower costs and boost the bottom line, having to do fewer paint touch-ups makes for much happier employees, right?


Imagine the possibilities of using SCUFF-X in high-traffic areas where making a good first impression and maintaining a professional appearance is important. We’re talking all kinds of rooms: waiting rooms, locker rooms, exam rooms, conference rooms, dining rooms, restrooms and dressing rooms.

Although available in two convenient sizes, in any of Benjamin Moore’s signature array of 3,500 colours and in three different finishes (matte, eggshell and satin), SCUFF-X is more than just a pretty face: it contains anti-microbial additives that inhibit the growth of mould and mildew on the surface of the paint. This is tough stuff, folks – mark my word.
