Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great look Gloss Look Been using Minwax for years. Easy to apply with brush. Dries really quick. There were complaints about foaming up, make sure you don't shake the can. Stir it with a paint stick, shaking it will make it foam up and bubbles. Make sure you wait between coats or you will get white streak in your coating. Let it dry at least two hours then sand with a very fine sandpaper 220 grit to ensure an even finish and proper adhesion of additional coats. Wipe down after sanding to get all the dust off. Three coats is recommended. Final coat wait 3+ hours before handling it and 24 hours before normal use. January 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Used this many times I am a licensed contractor. I've used this product many times with no problems. I have also used the water based polyurethane. I've used many Minwax stains too, and I've always been happy with the results. December 18, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Awful - clue words "ultra fast" Dried too fast for use on large area. Streaked and foamed like crazy. Used purdy brush, then tried foam brush. Had to put on thick and dry brush but still couldn't get perfect finish. Ruined my project! December 1, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Only use this product if you want a high gloss finish. I used this product to give a table top a protective finish. It works well, but the finish was too high gloss for me. I switched to a satin finish, which I prefer. November 19, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't dry clear - I HATE MINWAX!!! I am so sick of Minwax products ruining my projects, but they are all the stores seem to carry. I bought this stuff expecting a clear gloss finish, followed all the instructions perfectly, but it dried with milky white streaks ruining my table. I should know better by now,I don't think I have ever been fully happy with a Minwax product, the stains are never represented accurately for color. And beware of the PolyShades product! That will ruin your surface too, streaky and gloppy. July 1, 2012
