8 oz. Gloss Polycrylic Protective Finish is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff !! Tried this on a lark and am loving it. Now I know the difference between shine and luster and the polycrylic is a much easier product to work with. And the crystal clear also doesn't "amber" the wood. You get the true color of the wood. I used it on a pecan and elm wood project and it gives a deep rich look. Loving it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not protective enough Following the recommendation of spot testing first to ensure satisfactory results; I sanded, cleaned, and then put on one coat of polycyclic using a high quality synthetic bristle brush. I went with the grain as well when applying. I let it dry for a DAY and then sanded with 220 grit sandpaper cleaning all dust. I went on to apply 2 more coats. The directions say allow 3 hours for light handling and 24 hours for normal use. So I waited 24 hours and then slid a coin on the "protective" coating. It left a nice big scratch that wouldn't come off by wiping it. I then waited another 24 hours and same thing happened. A whole week later and the coin/key with LITTLE force still left a nice scratch mark. This "protective finish" is no better than any acrylic based paint out there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tar and Feather Your Furnishings with Polycrylic Polycrylic as a water based material is politically correct but chemically wrong. ' Should have stuck to my guns as an organic chemist and saw through the junk chemistry. I had to see for myself- Yes, it's all new, but not improved- In general, all the "new" coatings, paints, and removers don't match the chemical stability and time-tested PETROLEUM oil-based compounds. In reality, polycrylic should never be used for outdoor use. To be fair the package says for "indoor use", The communication should be more glaringly declarative, NOT FOR OUTDOOR USE (PERIOD). The finish looks great in the beginning but in humid environments it retains a perennial tackiness attracting dirt. It's windy on the hilltop where "my stuff" resides, where truckloads of black sand are delivered in fine increments each year. Having "0" UV resistance the coating peels very quickly in Central FL sun. Coated a bird feeder and 30% peeled in less than 6 months- Also coated patio chairs (for indoor patio) a year ago after sanding, priming, double spray painting and then double coating it. Every part of that (once beautiful) furniture even remotely touching human skin (back of head included) developed a thick, pitch black tar look and is now peeling. 40% of all the armrests on every chair is black and can't be cleaned due to an unidentified chemical reaction (body salt? oil?). This is a fair warning review, every good hard-working DIY American deserves. Stick to high quality polyurethane coatings -a little yellowing is better than the "tar and feathering" this product will do to your hard work.
