    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi amie, thanks for your question. Oil-based products tend to offer more durability; however, they can also have an amber tone to them and require mineral spirits to clean up. Water-based products have an easier clean up (soap and water) and do not have an amber tone; however, they generally are not as durable as oil-based products. Hope this info helps! -Christina

        A:  Hi Rick - Thank you for your question. This product can be applied on top of wood surfaces that have been previously coated with oil-based stains, urethanes, and varnishes, and will protect the surface from the outside elements. Best - Sara

          Spar varnish is probably the best finish to use on an outdoor piece of furniture as it has UV inhibitors to keep the sun from fading the wood. If you have some nice cedar teak furniture than this wood be excellent to use. I'm going to use it on the unpainted wood parts of wood Christmas decorations we used this year. Some of the parts were just raw wood and they got soaked from rain and snow and are starting to disintegrate so I'm going to have to re-cut those parts and then put a coat of this finish on to protect them. I was going to coat the whole Christmas item but the instructions recommend that this product not be used over other paints.

          The Behr Oil-based urethane sealer offers an extremely durable finish to any interior or exterior project. The urethane is very durable but be aware that any clean up will require mineral spirts or paint thinner. This may make it a less desirable choice to most non-professional woodworkers. The urethane does contain UV inhibitors which is ideal for any outdoor application that would be exposed to direct sunlight. Even though this product is considered safe for indoor applications after it is dried, there may be off gassing of VOC for an extended period of time, I would only recommend for outdoor use. There are other water-based products that would be a better choice for interior use.

          I needed to refinish the working surface on an antique bakers cupboard and decided to try the Behr semi-glass clear oil based spar urethane wood sealer. It was easy to apply so that no brush marks would show and there would be a nice smooth surface. The semi-gloss gave it just the right amount of shine that I was hoping for. Now the working surface has a new hard sealed surface to work on.

          This durable polyurethane offers UV protection to prolong the life of your wood surface and create a smooth, lasting clear finish. This enhances the look and color of your wood surface, allowing its true beauty to shine through. It helps the wood grain "pop" while protecting it from weather. I've used this to finish a cedar Adirondack chair that sits poolside at a home in Arizona. In the 2+ years it's sat exposed to the sun the finish still looks as though it was coated today! Very little greying around the edges in places. This is an oil based product that requires mineral spirits or similar product to clean up.

          This is a high quality urethane wood sealer. The picture is a piece of birch veneer that was not pertained or treated. As you can see the urethane wood sealer coats well and penetrates the wood. I did a side-by-side comparisons of sheen with a gloss finish. The semi-gloss is not quite as shiny as the gloss finish. The picture is showing the finished product that is two coats. The first coat actually dried to the touch in about 15-minutes. However, the second coat took almost an hour to dry to the touch. I did not sand between coats.

          I have limited experience with oil based urethane as I have been having good luck with water based poly's over oil based stains (your mileage may vary). However, I have been wanting to experiment with Oil based urethane so I selected this spar urethane. It is well known that oil based poly's have an amber hue to them. I tested for this using some light Popsicle sticks as well as a few samples of pine I had in the shop. There is a noticeable green/yellow tint but this spar based urethane is no worse than a regular oil based urethane. This urethane is durable and I love the self leveling effect it has over the water based stuff I have used. I plan on using this on my front door as I noticed the amber/green effect is not really visible on darker woods.

          This product seems to be really good. It arrived packaged well so that nothing could happen to it. I was surprised when i opened the can to find a dark colored product. I expected it to be clear. Once i applied it to a wooden surface of course it was clear. I was surprised how far one brush full went. It covered far more surface than i expected. It gave great protective clear coat and it dried pretty fast. Great urethane wood sealer.

          Super product. Time will tell on the UV damage, but I expect the best based on my experience with Behr products. Applies easily, levels perfectly (no brush marks) dries as advertised even in relatively cool temperatures. If you haven't used before I suggest reading the label very closely and following all instructions to the letter, and plan on at least 3 coats for best appearance, 4 is better.

          The use of this wood sealer resulted in a professional appearing finish. I utilized it on wood stair treads after staining with a Behr stain. The sealer applied smoothly and evenly. Applied at the recommended temperature range the results were excellent with no brush marks or lines showing. It has UV protection for outdoor use. It dried in a couple of hours after application. It is also water resistant and expands/contracts with temperature changes to avoid cracking. The clear finish allowed the beauty of the wood to show thru. Good price point on a good product.

          Being oil-based, this wood sealer is easier to work with than quick-dry water-based polyurethane. We put four coats on a stained wood threshold and it's beautiful.
