Customer Questions & Answers

how do you lay down the finish

Asked by: larra
I used a Shure-Line paint pad. Worked great - just apply in THIN coats - multiple times.

Will this product yellow over time??

Asked by: DIYer
Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Floor Finish Polyurethane offers a crystal clear finish that is scuff and scratch resistance. For the best results, we recommend applying the number of recommended coats and recoating only when the previous coats have dried clear and feel hard.

Can it be applied on a concrete floor

Asked by: Jay
Happy to clear things up, Jay! We do not recommend Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Floor Polyurethane for use on concrete surfaces. If wanting to put a clear coat over a concrete floor, check out Rust-Oleum EpoxyShield Clear Floor Coating!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product I am redoing a bed and breakfast with many rooms and lots of wear. I used another companies product and was very disappointed. The large common room, 45' long was the next project and wanted another water based polyurethane. I applied three coats over a sealer and am very impressed with the results. there has been a lot of traffic including two very busy children's birthday parties and several dogs including a 130 pound German Shepherd using the floor daily. It is not bullet proof, but it is holding up very well. This is the product I will use in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works. I wanted to put a hard coating over my kitchen floor that I just stained. I also had such a headache with the stain (even with the windows open and fans going ), that I wanted a water based product. I brushed this Poly on and gave the floor three coats. There is very little odor. I couldn't find this product at the stores so I ordered it on line. It came quickly. But I had to order two gallons. One gallon gave me the three coats over a 300 sq ft floor. It is not inexpensive but well worth the dollars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zero Durability. Defective Batch? Given the great results everyone else has posted, I'm going to guess I received a defective batch. I applied this product exactly as described, and even used a Varathane brush. When I was done, I gave it 8 days before stepping on it (Varathane recommends 3 days). On the 9th day I had company over. The finish is scratched to the point where the floors look 10-15 years old already. Obviously I'm extremely disappointed. On the bright side, after a call to Home Depot customer service it looks like I will be able to return the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Application was very easy. This is a great product providing you need at least two gallons as that is how it is sold. The label has been slightly changed removing the word 'diamond' from the front of the label although the product appears to be the same. It takes about ten days to arrive so order it prior to using it.
