  • TuffSkin Surface Protection Advocates for Natural Stone at HD Expo May 15-17

    LAS VEGAS– TuffSkin Surface Protection will exhibit at an interactive booth during the Hospitality Design (HD) Expo May 15-17, 2019 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. 

    Look for TuffSkin at Booth 5069 and meet Lelia Friedlander, Katie Friedlander, Kyle Ross and Louisa Dizon.

    Hospitality's most influential designers, developers, purchasing firms, and ownership groups attend HD Expo because of the unmatched level of original products, education and inspiration.

    The TuffSkin team regularly offers continuing education to design decision makers through the

    Natural Stone Institute, educating design/ décor professionals about the benefits of using

    natural stone in design along with providing practical suggestions on how to best protect

    and maintain the beauty of natural stone.

    Hospitality- and designer-recommended TuffSkin has been solving housekeeping and

    maintenance issues in commercial properties, residences and in the hospitality industry.

    Frank Friedlander, vice president and developer, invented the product in 2007 to solve a

    problem for a hotel’s engineer. The company now serves hospitality, commercial and

    residential clients worldwide. 

    Lelia Friedlander, president of TuffSkin, said educating decor experts and designers is a

    priority for TuffSkin and in line with the company’s core values. Attendees will have the

    opportunity to test the benefits of TuffSkin personally to see how it works.

    The acid and stain-free formula increases durability and longevity of marble, onyx or

    travertine by eliminating etching and staining caused by alcohol, coffee, water, wine,

    juice, oils, lemons, perfume, toothpaste and makeup. TuffSkin also tolerates heat over

    400 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Because TuffSkin’s laminate is liquid impermeable but gas permeable, it lets stone

    “breathe.” It disappears on surfaces and brings out the stone’s natural beauty.

    TuffSkin’s original Gloss is perfect for polished stone while TuffSkin’s newer Satin

    complements a honed stone surface.

    The company’s Gloss product won the Surface/Coating Systems Award in the Applied

    Finishes and Materials category in the 2012 International Interior Design Association’s

    Hospitality Design competition. TuffSkin expanded its residential division in 2016.
