A: Great question, Daucella! Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane can be recoated after 2 hours. Re-coat only when previous coats have dried clear and feel hard (no longer tacky to touch). If any coat has dried more than 24 hours, lightly sand before re-coating to avoid brush marks. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: We appreciate your interest, Debbie. Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane is not a tintable product. Adding tint or dyes can prevent proper drying of the finish. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: Hi Dale, our Varathane Ultimate Water-Based Polyurethane is not an odor-blocking coating. For blocking odors, we recommend first using our Zinsser Odor Killing Primer, which is a clear sealer. This may be followed by the polyurethane to protect the surface if desired. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-1-gal-Odor-Killing-Interior-Primer-305928/206967270 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2
A: Thank you for reaching out, Robert! For the best finish and protection, we recommend applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane with a good quality, synthetic bristle brush, foam brush, or applicator. We do not recommend wiping this polyurethane on. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
