Answer: 
Varathane Polyurethane and Varathane High Traffic Floor Finish Polyurethane are not the same product. Varathane Floor Finish is designed to expand and contract with the flexibility of floors and withstand foot traffic. Varathane Polyurethane is ideal for furniture and other indoor wood projects.

Answer: 
Yes, but it WILL scratch, and it probably won't adhere as well as if applied over wood, for instance.
You could try lightly scratching the laminate with ScotchBrite pad to give the polyurethane a "tooth" for better adhesion.
Personally, this would not be my preferred coating for laminate, but I will assume your laminate is in bad shape to be thinking of doing this, so it may be worth a try.

Answer: 
While this is not made to be in long-term exposure to water (being an interior product), anything that penetrates slightly, and then hardens as this does should help keep water from penetrating and de-laminating your laminate if you spill water on it.
Just to be sure this water based product won't cause delamination, I would apply the first coat thin so it will dry before the product stays wet long

Just to be sure this water based product won't cause delamination, I would apply the first coat thin so it will dry before the product stays wet long enough to cause the very swelling/delamination you hope to avoid by using the polyurethane in the first place. Once you have a dry first coat, you can apply a second, wetter coat.

Answer: 
Yes, Rust-Oleum Varathane Crystal Clear Polyurethane can be painted over. With all smooth or glossy finishes, it is typically recommended to either scuff sand the surface or prime with an adhesion promoting primer such as Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 for best adhesion before painting over it.

Answer: 
Not sure, but MOST polyurethane finishes seal SO well when cured that they won't allow other paints to get a "bite" on them for more adhesion. I'm not saying a topcoat won't dry and adhere somewhat, but it could be subject to flaking off if disturbed much.
The answer is probably yes IF you lightly sand the poly before repainting, but that seems like a lot of work to me.

I suppose you could use a conventional sealer (clear) which is made to be painted over, and decide if you like the clear look. If so, THEN use poly for a permanent finish. Read Less

1-qt. Clear Semi-Gloss Water-Based Interior Polyurethane (Case of 2) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.

Much easier to apply than oil based varnish because water based Polyurethane initially appears milky so it's much easier to see areas where you might have missed, especially when adding another coat of finish. Also Polyurethane doesn't skin over in the can like oil based products often do when half the volume is used up. Cleanup is super simple, just wash out brush with soap and water. All in all a very user friendly clear finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was so easy to use! This is the best indoor wood seal/finish we have ever used. The odor was barely noticeable, cleanup was easy with water, and it produced an excellent finish! We used two coats and sanded lightly with 400 grit sandpaper after the first coat. It only took about 15 minutes to dry, so the process went quickly. The Home Depot employee suggested using an old t-shirt to apply so there would be no brush lines, and she was right! Our handmade reclaimed redwood tv stand looks great! We will definitely buy more of this product for our next reclaimed wood project - bookcases!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal Clear Coat I used the product over a painted floor. It dries absolutely clear with no yellow tint, which is exactly what I was looking for. The semi gloss designation is a bit wrong I think, though. came out a bit too glossy for what I wanted, so I put down a couple of coats of the satin version of the product over the semi gloss and it came out to what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Easy To Use This goes on fast, looks good, has very low odor, and cleanup is easy. I can't address durability as of yet but I'm happy with product. I used two coats over a water based sanding primer on unfinished oak cabinets. All done in 5 - 6 hours!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product Was a little hesitant on a water based product . It went on easy, dried very fast and looks great. I haven't had it long enough to see the durability but with everything else that's good NO WORRIES!!
