Great finish by spraying
Product produced a great finish for some cabinets I built. Applied by spraying with a HVLP sprayer. Used a 1.5 tip and just had to add a small amout of water to meet the 20 second viscosity test. Sprayed really well and leveled out after 4 or 5 minutes to smooth finish.

Awesome product!
Very easy to apply and dries quickly. Flows well to remove brush marks. I applied it with a bristle brush, foam brush and a roller. All worked perfectly! I ended up applying five coats to the table I was refinishing to offer the best protection to the surface. Clean-up was a breeze. It almost felt like cheating to use this product because it is so easy to get professional results.

Usually a Behr fan- no more!
Terrible. Didn’t self-level like other brands do. Applied on a 73 degree dry day. Sanded with 1000 grit paper after 4 hrs. There were scratches from that, as usual, but assumed they would cover over with the next coat. NOPE!! Looks horrible. Wasted time/$

    Looks great, doesnt protect against scratches
    Put 3 coats of this stuff on my new staircase and waited the 24 hours for it to cure. Looked great until my dog walked on them. Got all scratched and scuffed the second his claws touched the stairs. Looks good, but if it offer little to no protection, whats the point?

      Don't Buy This
      Worst polyurethane I have ever used. Finish looked crystal clear and beautiful until any slight touch to surface. Leaves scratches and then starts flaking off. Have never seen anything like this with any other brand of poly. I bought 2 quarts of the matte finish and it has created an absolute nightmare. Will have to scrub off all the poly (which flakes off like sunburnt skin when we rub it with a green and yellow kitchen dish sponge.

        I tried this product on 3 different surfaces and it delivered good results. I am putting new hardwood floors and after staining them I used this to seal it. The product has good consistency, runs smooth and it has low odor. It dried up fast and the finish was semi matte without bringing out mistakes that I caused during staining. I also tried it on a chair that I painted with chalk paint and I am happy to inform it didn’t crack the paint which has happened with other brand that I have used. I also used it on a cultured marble top counter that I painted with flat paint and it brought a gloss to the surface and most importantly it didn’t chip. I tried to put many things on top of the countertop to see if it would chip and no it didn’t happen and also no stains or marks. Very happy with product. I would definitely recommend it.
