Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use this over oil base stain on my dining table top?

Asked by: AGA
I just used MINWAX brand STAIN on my kitchen island top, an oil based stain. It says on the can that MINWAX product Polycrilic can be applied over it. so YES for sure if you use Minwax oil based stain. I would wait 24 hours to allow stain to dry before using the Polycrylic.

Can this be used as a finish on hardwood floors?

Asked by: Belle
Minwax says no, but they do make a product specifically for hardwood floors - most likely your local HD has it.

1 qt. Satin Polycrylic Protective Finish is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever for Everything This is the BEST product ever! I use this on everything. From decoupage projects to my hardwood floors. It was also used on my painted kitchen cabinets. My dining table was refinished over 20 years ago with this product and there is not a knick or scratch on the table top - and we use it everyday. I've refinished countless furniture pieces and have found that this product provides the best protective coating. Buyer Beware - there is a disclaimer not to use with latex paint. With this caution in mind, I have found that this product can and has tinted latex paint. The outcome has been a yellowing or as I prefer to say it provides an antique glaze effect to piece being worked on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this stuff Ive been using this stuff instead of regular old poly and so far its great. Ive used it on several wood projects including a coffee table and clock with various types of stains and no yellowing. Ive put it over white trim paint with no discoloration. Note to user: this stuff works great in a compressed air HVLP spray gun. Coats even and clear, sand with 300 or higher grit paper with very light pressure, comes out smooth as glass. Unfortunately, Ive just started using this stuff so I cant speak to its durability over time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not dry clear Dont use this unless your base coat is white or cream. I bought this product as a top coat for a dresser I painted black. It left a white tint on the dresser. I had to gently sand the finish off. I ended up using a spray can of polyurethane. I painted bifold doors a light cream and used this product and the finish turned out fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bubbles. Can't get rid of the bubbles. Lots of bubbles everywhere. I followed the directions. Did... Bubbles. Can't get rid of the bubbles. Lots of bubbles everywhere. I followed the directions. Didn't shake the can, 70 degrees, didn't overbrush, high quality Purdy synthetic brush. The surface was completely dry, a table that's many years old. No dust in the room. Just bubbles. I read lots of message boards, and tried a foam brush, wet sponge of two types. Didn't scrape the brush on the edge of the can. I read somewhere there's a special brush that Minwax makes that works better- but they don't say that in the directions on the can. I guess spraying is the best way to apply, but I don't do this often enough to buy that equipment. I'd like to give it one star, but that means "I hate it" and I don't like to say that. But I'm not going to use this on anything I care about looking nice. And it's expensive. Pros: dried clear, at least in my application. Cleans up easily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from probably a good product - did not work for me I was looking for a product to provide a waterproof barrier over water soluble stain in order to protect curtains and blinds when there is condensation on windows in the winter. The stain did not bleed quite so badly but it would have still ruined curtains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST of this type product. I hope they don't change the formula. Best of anything i ever used on furniture indoors. Have used this for years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I used it on a dresser that I painted white and it performed beautifully. A year later it is still as clear as the day I applied it and has been very durable. It was a breeze to apply - I actually used a sprayer to apply it - and it dried in a snap. It dried much quicker that polyurethane and has never yellowed one bit like poly will. And since it's water-based it doesn't have the strong odor and fumes like all of the other clear coats have, and it cleans up with soap and water. I don't know what the other reviewers who reported to have problems did wrong, but if you just follow the instructions you will not be disappointed. It's actually pretty idiot-proof, which makes it a great clear coat for almost anyone to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best and Most Versatile Product I've Found - EVER I'm not a neat painter person... In fact, I generally wind up wearing more than I get on the surface. I started doing tile mosaics on wood a couple of years ago and began using wood stains and sealers on the trim pieces. Everyone said the oil based and bar top type varnishes were best, and, it's possible that they are. I wouldn't know, you see. The first quart I bought I dropped onto a hard surface floor accidentally - it broke right open and soaked a $1200 rug. Awesome. The second quart I bought it was a windy day when I went to use it, it took forever to dry and wound up with bits of dust stuck all over it. I had to sand it and start over. Enter Minwax Polycrylic - it changed my life. I LOVE this stuff. Drop the can? No worries, a spray bottle of windex and you're good to go. It dries fast, thus provides a much shorter window of time for me to mess the finish up. Uses for Polycrylic? What Can't You Use It On? I use it on a lot of stuff, like, just about anything I want to seal that is not going to set out in the rain. I apply it to painted surfaces, some of my metal sculpture pieces, and... wait for it... my fingernails. Not sure Minwax wants that promoted, but there it is. Dull rocks that would otherwise be pretty? No problem, smooge some Polycrylic on there. Shabby-chic wood furniture? Too easy - a quart of cheap white paint and Polycrylic & you're good to go. Those ugly clay pots getting you down? Get out your brush and paint 'em, seal with Polycrylic. I'm serious, I use it on about everything. Don't have a drip pan for your 1956 F100? No worries, scrap of plywood coated with you guessed it, Polycrylic. Have fun!
