Why this smell so strong? is it bad for health to breath in?

Asked by: Alex
Hello, Sorry to hear that you have had this experience. Strong odor can happen if proper ventilation isn't used. Odor should dissipate after a few days however. Increase air flow around the project.

1 qt. Satin Fast-Drying Polyurethane is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good finish but product doesn't store well I have used Minwax products for over 40 years and have always been very happy. This was my first disappointment. I only needed a small amount but apparently they don't make pints anymore so I had to buy a quart. As expected it did the job. However, I just opened the can to use it again only a month later and there was a half inch of solid mass on the top. When I broke through that the rest of the polyurethane was like glue. It was completely unusable. So, if you need the whole quart, fine buy this product. But if you only need a small amount find something else because this doesn't store well at all. I've never had this happen to a can of polyurethane before.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing but trouble My contractor used this product to finish my retro stair treads - oak. He hoped that the fast drying formula would allow us to complete the project sooner, but it has been nothing but trouble. We applied according to directions, in recommended temp and humidity. It has taken over a week for the first coat to dry. Every time he tries to sand, the finish gums up, not allowing him to progress. My contractor is first a painting contractor, with many years of experience working with products such as this. This is his (and mine) first - and last- time working with this fast drying version of MinWax poly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Produced a great finish I think the keys to using this product are take your time and don't skimp on the sanding. I used this to apply a protective finish to a project I was making out of pine. I didn't want a high gloss and this satin polyurethane did just the trick. Others have complained about bubbles coming up on their work but I believe a lot of that occurs because of shaking the bottle. I'm tempted to shake it to because it's smaller than the gallon size, but a few stirs with a paint stick is all you need. Sanding lightly helps you get a good final fish, especially if you look at your first coats and see bits of dust stuck on. Good product that will give you professional results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Finish I have a bit of experience refinishing cabinets and doors. This is the first time I used this Minwax product. I was encouraged to try it by another customer. I brushed on the first cabinet door, like the instructions said and I did have the bubbles. I was using a Purdy Syntox brush. This product is thin and easy to spread, so I dipped a sock in the can and went over the brush strokes knowing those bubbles can't dry and ruin my door. The sock worked perfectly. I did the rest of the cabinets using a soft sock and the results are perfect. I can't believe how fast it dries and the sheen is a satin, not a gloss. I will say that because it's so much thinner than other polys, you have to do about a coat more. No big deal when it dries to the touch in about 6-8 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall good quality. I thought this was a bit more glossy than anticipated as well, but I'm okay with it. I used it on a dining room table I bought and it works really well. Following the directions and using as light of a coat as possible for the first coat makes for a great outcome. The second coat I used seemed to take more than the first, but overall, I was impressed with the outcome. My past experiences involved a bunch of runs and extensive sanding between coats. Not with this. I really didn't even see the need to sand after the first coat, but I did anyway since the directions said to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLEASED WITH RESULTS i have experience with older polyurethane varnishes from over 10 years ago. I chose an oil base because a water base will surely raise the grain. I was impressed with the soft satin finish fast build up, excellent leveling and transparency.. Can says 6 hours to dry and 24 hours to full hardness. I varnished fumed oak-oak treated with ammonia. Perhaps, because of the oak or? But, the finish needed at least 24 hours to be hard enough to sand with ultra fine sand paper. No problem. I was hot in a rush but, if, I was doing a floor, I would need to learn to fly.. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great finish If you follow the directions, you'll get exactly what Minwax promises - a great finish for you project. In the past I've done three coats, but I two was just fine thought with this polyurethane.
