A:  Thanks for reaching out. Varathane Oil Based Spar Urethane cannot be applied to a deck, it is not formulated to withstand foot traffic. Give us a call at 800-373-6333 so we can hear more about your deck and provide the correct product recommendation. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6

    Q:Is that a total of 2 gallons? Can I spray this on?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Great question, Bob. This listing of Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-based Spar Urethane is sold in case quantity, which means you will receive two 1-gallon containers for the price shown. This product can be applied using a good quality, natural bristle brush or applicator. We don't recommend spraying it on as it will reduce the surface protection and performance of the coating. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

      A:  Each tin contains 1 gallon. I think I bought a package that contained 2 individual tins each 1 gallon. This is a little thicker than olive oil. I don't know if spraying would work. Clean up woulld be very difficult. You would need a solvent and it might clog your equipment. We used it on an interior floor and used a paint roller. Hope that helps

            A:  Yes it can be. We used it on an apartment floor that was not heated and it still looks great for each showing. Highly durable.

                                Would have gave a 5 star, great product. But received one can that was sooo damaged it was mission impossible too open. When I did get it opened it was impossible too reseal an wasted half my gallon. Could have been shipping company fault. But non the less, the stuff is expensive an half of a gallon got wasted.

                                That is odd. All of our products are inspected before they are packaged and shipped. It is important to us to know more so we can ensure this does not happen again with our products. Please call us at 800-901-0411 to discuss further.

                                Not like old Spar Varnish
                                After applying to my replacement knotty pine siding on my house I read the label, okay, my fault, guys don't follow instructions well. The label says not intended for siding or something like that. Ooops. Additionally, after reading up on mildew information on the web, it says some varnish formulations today actually encourage mildew growth. Nice. Fortunately from my years of former professional painting I did mix in an after market mildewcide prior to application. We'll see how that works. Probably negated any implied suitability for purpose but I know that doing nothing didn't work either. So from the homeowners perspective, the EPA has taken materials out of products that actually perform, so now the result is siding that should have lasted 30 years or more looks bad in 5 years. Thus necessitating the replacement. I'd say this is a little counterproductive from an environmental standpoint. The sad thing is, there aren't many options today and no common sense. Unfortunately, it doesn't stop there either. Many products that used to work with older formulations, like resilient flooring adhesives, now often fail immediately or soon after installation so that certainly helped the environment didn't it? (Ask any flooring contractor) So the review/rating I have shared reflects more on what industry has been forced to do, rather than the product itself in its present formulation. It applied fine and leveled out well. Those are things that are somewhat important but longevity is what really matters and that I won't know for years. Given no other real options, I would say it is the best out there for the price. How's that for a treatise..........

                                  Thank you for your feedback! If wanting to lower the sheen with Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Spar Urethane in Gloss, you can topcoat with a lower sheen finish. Make sure the previous application is dry and follow the instructions for a previously coated surface with the new coat.

                                  I used this product on my outside redwood fence and it transformed it from drab to beautiful, plus it stops the fading process that is normally seen on redwood outside.
