Questions & Answers

Can this product be used to fill cracks, nicks, and worm holes in wood while still maintaining it...

Can this product be used to fill cracks, nicks, and worm holes in wood while still maintaining it's self levelling finish? If not could you suggest a different product please?
Asked by: Connor
Connor, we do not recommend applying our Varathane Matte Triple Thick Polyurethane to cracked or uneven wood surfaces that may cause the polyurethane to pool or puddle on the surface. If the polyurethane is too thick in an area, it may result in a white haze caused by moisture entrapment. For this type of application, we recommend using our Super Glaze Pour on Finish & Preservative: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rust-Oleum-Parks-1-qt-Gloss-Super-Glaze-Finish-and-Preservative-241352/202056337

Great question, Stefeni! Rust-Oleum Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane is suitable for use over previously coated wood surfaces. Please keep in mind that the surface must be free from wax, silicones, oils or other contaminants, thoroughly cleaned and abraded before applying this polyurethane.

Customer Reviews

1 qt. Matte Triple Thick Polyurethane is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, smooth result I have been using water-borne urethane on my shelves for years. This stuff is definitely thicker than the standard coatings I have used. It is slightly more difficult to spread, but not too much worse than thick paint. I usually put on three or four coats of the standard urethane, so I was glad of not having to put on several coats with this product. Well, I ended up putting on two coats with a light sanding in between, using 220 grit sandpaper. This stuff seemed to dry just as quickly as the regular products and came out very smooth. It might even be a little smoother than usual. It is very easy to clean up with water when done. Overall, one quart of this will cover more area, requires fewer coats and leaves a nice smooth surface.

This was highly recommended by the paint department for my unfinished hardwood floor. Followed directions and even sanded after the first coat to help smooth the raised grain (typical) but after the second coat the floor looked awful! I sanded the floor, returned this poly and bought a regular Varathane and have a beautiful finish now. I have finished every room in my 2500sq ft house so I have some experience and can say that this product is not worth buying. Avoid like the plague. And HD pull it off your shelves!

I was looking for straight oil based polyurethane and I thought that this was it. This is WATER BASED and the front label DOESN'T mention it. The fact that is water based is only mentioned once in the fine print on the back. Its too thick to use as a wiping poly and the water base eats paper towels in ways that oil based doesn't. If you have any trace steel wool the water poly will rust it. Not what I wanted. Not what I needed. Can't return it. Anyone want a nearly full quart? MadMark

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Such big hopes unrealized I so much wanted to be able to use a water-based polyurethane on my jewelry boxes instead of an oil-based poly. This one does no better than others I've tried. I am a big fan of Varathane water-based semi-gloss polyurethane for my wood floors, so I wanted to give this a try. It goes on thick but does not even appear like it has put a protective coat on a sample piece of cherry wood. I applied a single coat (supposedly equivalent to three) with unsatisfactory results, so I sanded as directed and reapplied (now six coats). While I can tell that there is a protective coating on the wood after the second coat, it is nothing to write home about. I put my wood sample under the kitchen faucet. Although both the oil-based and water-based polys did repel the waterl, the oil-based was noticeably better. In the attached pictures you will see an oil-based spar urethane that has a gloss finish on the left and the Varathane water-based triple poly with matte finish on right. Although it is not an apples to apples comparison as the oil-based is gloss and the water-based in mate, it honestly is hard to see much of any improvement over the bare wood.
