Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use it on painted (not stained) wood?

Can I use it on painted (not stained) wood?
Asked by: Abe
Hello. Yes, we agree. Polycrylic can be used over paint. However, latex paint needs to be cured for 30m days, oil-based paint, 7 days. If the paint has any sheen or is chalking, it will need to be dull (220 is an ideal grit), make sure the paint is dry and is clean, and is not flaking or peeling. Regards, Minwax Customer Service

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.

1 qt. Satin Polycrylic Protective Finish is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 26.
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 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 Issues with the first coat this was my first time staining and finishing something so I'm sure this review could be chalked up to my inexperience with stains and finishes. I recently built a wine rack for someone and had no problems with the staining process so I got a nice brush followed all the dierections and laid my first coat of polycrylic down. I had a really hard time seeing where i was spreading the stuff, it was difficult to to get even coverage, it had a sort of tacky consistency and so it left all kinds of brush strokes after it dried. As far as the color goes it didn't seem to alter or leave any kind of coloring other than brush strokes. I used some fine grit sanding paper and lightly sanded by hand after it dried but that left all kinds of scuffy kind of marks even after I wiped it down. I just gave it a second coat so I'm hoping I can get it right, the first coat has me a little worried. If youve never used this before I would recommend maybe practicing on a scrap piece of wood before attempting it on a finished product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poly acrylic A great finish for projects that will not be subject to heavy use. Dries very fast, flashes very, very fast in warm temp and low humidity. For first coat it would be beneficial to lightly prewet the wood.

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 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 5 out of 5 by from Love it. I had not used a low VOC water based clear coat product before. I always used products such as Minwax wipe on poly, lacquer and shellac. This product is much easy to use and cleans up with soap and water, love it. I recommend you splurge and buy a 2 inch Purdy nylon polyester paint brush. I have used the same brush for two months on water based stain and clear coat. It still looks and feels like new. Good luck with your project.

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!
