Questions & Answers

like other spar varnish, will this yellow with curing and/or age?

Asked by: OLDguy
Yes. It doesn't even need to cure or dry to see that it's yellow. If you're looking for 'crystal clear' poly, this ain't it! Unfortunately, I learned the hard way...

i was told by an employee a high gloss interior/exterior paint will work well on my kitchen table can i use this to seal it?

Asked by: mary
Hello. No. Our Polycrylic works better over paint. If it is a latex, based paint, allow 30 days for a full cure before topcoating. If the paint is oil-based, allow 7-14 days for a cure. Then, dull the paint if it has any sheen before applying our product. Regards, Minwax Customer Support

Hello, I have an outdoor door that is eroded by the sun and rain, causing fading, now i intend to use wood finish paint to restore the color, and then use this material to cover the wood finish paint, so right? Also I know that paint is water-based and oil-based, how should I choose? Thank you!
Asked by: amy
Hello, For outdoor applications, use our Gel Stain, not our Wood Finish Stain. It will hold up better in the sun. Topcoat with 3-4 coats of our Helmsman Spar Urethane. Both our water-based and oil-based versions will offer the same protection. However, our oil-based formulation will amber more than our water-based counterpart. Also, our water-based version will be cleanup with soap and water and will have less of an odor. Regards, Minwax Customer Support

I just applied 2 coats of Helmsman Spar Urethane semi-gloss on my front porch ceiling. Lightly sanded in between coats with 3/0 steel wool. Coverage seems to be good. Two third of a quart used on 100 sq. feet. It looks shiny and nice now. Hope it will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helmsman Gloss Spar Urethane Best product for finishing outdoor furniture! I'm re-finishing a couple tables and 5 chairs after 3 years of outdoor use...even withstanding some snow and lots of rain. The secret is to apply several thin coats with a soft 4" natural bristle brush. Apply in the shade in the cool of morning with no wind. Lightly feather-brush the surface after application to eliminate any bubbles that form. If you apply inside, allow a lot of ventilation. I'd recommend Helmsman Spar to anyone wanting a long lasting finish. Cons: The cost and odor.

It's been in the sun for two weeks and I still can't bring the item inside. Additionally, the coating is not very tough and remains pliable. Avoid this if you plan on bringing the piece indoors or setting anything down on the surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liquid glass Went on like melted butter, clear, wet glass look even after drying. I like this better than the water based version.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What?!? This leaves a horrible muddy tint on white surfaces. I used it on my wooden counter top, which was painted white. It genuinely looks like dirty dishwater left to dry on this countertop. See the photo attached. I emailed customer service (the wait time n the phone was rediculously long) and never got a response. Don't waste your time and money like I did.
