Asked by SY July 8, 2020
1
Answer

ECOS varnish is suitable for wood floors in high traffic residential areas and has been used in this application for over thirty years. We recommend applying three coats for durability, which is similar to that of a polyurethane. The varnish should not be cleaned with harsh chemicals or steam cleaners, which will soften the film and lead to premature degradation.

A great question. My answer - I don't know! It's water based so there may be issues with it going on over an oil-base. My suggestion is to call the manufacturer. I did, before i bought it, and they went out of their way to be informative and helpful.

Asked by Evgen January 25, 2019
1
Answer

Dear Valued Home Depot Customer, We have reached out to the manufacturer and their reply is, Our varnish can be applied over an oil-based poly-stain combo finish, so long as the finish has completely dried and cured. The existing finish will need first to be lightly sanded to open its surface so that the new varnish will adhere properly. Please note, the varnish will not smooth out a rough surface. That can only be done by sanding the substrate to remove the roughness.

How would this dry or set up on totally unfinished cork? Is it even recommended for that material?

Answer

It would probably be good, but I'm just guessing. Call the manufacturers, EcosPaints, 866-587-3586, I called them to get information on the product and they went out of their way to be helpful. Home Depot sells it at a lower price than ordering on their website.

This varnish is great because it has no smell, applied easily, fast drying (about two hours) and covered well. I used another varnish on some replacement boards for some flooring and I could not bring the boards in the house for two weeks because of the strong odor. I know I killed some brain cells with that varnish.

I had just had the floors sanded in two rooms of my house. I wanted a non-toxic, very low VOC finish for them and chose ECOS WoodShield. This product far exceeded my expectations. There were no fumes or odors. It applied easily, dried quickly, and I put four - not three - generous coats on the floors, but only used a single gallon. I had expected to use two, but I still even had a bit left over. After the first coat, the finish was so smooth that following coats used less product. It was cost-competitive. I highly recommend it.

This product is amazing. It has no lingering odor and dries in 15 minutes!

No awful odor
This. varnish was very easy to work with. It was like painting with skim milk. You had to watch out that it didn't puddle in any places. We had to varnish 14 windows and a door wall and all the associated moldings. Since it was winter time, we couldn't use regular polyurethane because of the smell and health dangers. The specifications say this has no odor. We were a bit skeptical, but they were right. We used 3 coats and still have about 1/3 of a gallon left. The finish looks great. VERY satisfied with this product. Only downside is that it is not carried in the store; you have to order it online, but it came in about a week.

No chemical smell. It didn't irritate my eyes at all. Color came out darker than sample. You need patience because it dries very fast and you have to be careful not to over stain some spots.

Applied easily following directions on container, product had an odor for 2 to 3 hours after each coat but totally went away 3 hours after final coat. My wife is asthmatic and was skeptical about the zero VOC claim at first, but now is a big believer in Ecos products. Wonderful stuff!
