Arisfor ToughDeck®

Arisfor ToughDeck® is a three component polymerized cementitious protective coating that can be applied to a variety of horizontal interior and exterior substrates including: concrete, wood, metal, pool decks and tile.

ToughDeck has superior adhesive properties and is extremely durable. This unique coating is abrasion resistant, impact resistant and water resistant while allowing for transmission of moisture vapor from within the substrate. Strong and sound, ToughDeck provides a long lasting slip-resistant surface in any temperature or climate.

It’s not a tough choice to make – choose Arisfor ToughDeck® to save time and money on your next concrete repair or resurfacing project.

Planning Wisely Could Save You…

There are many factors to consider when planning a concrete repair project. Do you demo the entire site and start over? How long will the area be out of service? Will you need to resurface your repairs in only a couple of years? How much will this job cost you when it’s all said and done? By using Arisfor ToughDeck, you can eliminate the extra steps and costs – saving you time and money!

We Don’t Water It Down

Arisfor ToughDeck utilizes a concentrated acrylic polymer to ensure a durable, sound, non-slip surface that can adhere to almost any substrate with minimal surface prep. Arisfor ToughDeck does not need to be resealed or resurfaced year-after-year, even with forklift and truck traffic, making it the perfect solution to any climate.

  •  Arisfor Bond (liquid component) | One (1) six (6) gallon pail
  •  Arisfor ToughDeck (cement based component) | Five (5) 50-lb bags
  •  Arisfor Mesh (fiberglass mesh component) | One (1) 475 sq. ft. roll

Coverage of the unit may range from 200-450 square feet depending on the desired finish, texture, and porosity of the substrate.

  •  Arisfor Bond (liquid component) | Six (6) gallon pail
  •  Arisfor Tough Deck (cement based component) | 50-lb bags
  •  Arisfor Mesh (fiberglass mesh component) | 475 sq. ft. roll (38 inches x 150 ft.)


All surfaces that are to be coated with Arisfor ToughDeck must be sound and free from any bond obstructing substances such as loose debris, grease, oil and any other contaminates or impeding materials. Sweep away any standing water from application site. Surface and ambient temperature required to be 40˚F (5˚C) and rising.


Always pour Arisfor Bond into the mixing container first. Gradually add cementitious component and mix with a slow speed drill (400-600 rpms) and high viscosity mixing paddle. Mix ratios range from 4 quarts of Arisfor Bond to achieve trowel grade consistency and up to 6 quarts of Arisfor Bond for a slurry consistency for each 50 lb. bag. Mix a minimum of 3-5 minutes to achieve a homogeneous lump-free blend. Let mixture rest for 5-8 minutes prior to application. Remix before beginning application. To keep color consistency, the same mix ratios should be used when mixing additional bags. DO NOT MIX WITH WATER.


Arisfor ToughDeck may be applied by brush, roller, trowel, squeegee, Magic Trowel, or spray. Apply one layer of ToughDeck to substrate and then embed the mesh, working from the center to the edges, while mixture is still wet. Lightly use trowel to fully encapsulate mesh. The base material should be approximately 1/16” to 1/8” thick. Additional layers may be applied to ensure mesh is uniformly covered and the desired finish is achieved. May be back in service to pedestrian traffic in 2-4 hours. Clean tools with water before product permanently adheres. Floors, metal, concrete, wood, tile or any surface not intended to be coated, should be wiped clean using a wet cloth within minutes of application to avoid permanent adhesion.


Moving cracks may reflect in finished product
Do not apply over expansion joints
Product working time is approximately 45 minutes at 70°F (21°C)


  • Start in the middle of project and work outward
  • Clean tools periodically with clean water throughout application process & clean fully at end
  • When troweling, keep tools coated with liquid bond.
  • A spray bottle of liquid bond is recommended. If material sets rapidly, spray on liquid bond to refresh wet material to achieve desired finish.
