how many square feet does 1 gallon covers
Asked by: doris
We like how you think, Doris. Each gallon of Rust-Oleum Varathane Floor Finish Polyurethane covers 500 to 600 square feet per gallon. Keep in mind that a minimum of 3 coats is required to build up the proper film protection, so take that into consideration when estimating the square footage needed. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Someone told me you can use oil based for first coat then water based polyurethane. Is this true. It doesn't sound right

Asked by: Jan
Good question, Jan. It is possible to apply water-based paint over oil-based paint or vice versa. Just make sure that the product is fully cured before topcoating. When applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Floor Finish Polyurethane, the surface must be clean, dry and free of wax, grease, oil, shellac, lacquer, mildew, and polishes as this can prevent adhesion. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

What is the UV protection level? I'm finishing a new American Chestnut 500 sqft kitchen floor that is all windows and I'm concerned about yellowing. Thank you
Asked by: Rob
We appreciate your interest, Rob! Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Interior Polyurethane is recommended for use on interior floors only. Please keep in mind that since this is an oil-based coating, it will have a warm golden glow to it. If looking for a clear floor finish, Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Floor Polyurethane may be a better fit for your application. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-Gal-Clear-Satin-Water-Based-Floor-Polyurethane-Case-of-2-230231/202057141 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Varathane 1 gal. Clear Matte Oil-Based Floor Finish Polyurethane (2-Pack) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent product I originally put water-based Varethane on my maple floor about 6 years ago and it is ruined to the point that I had to use wood bleach (not to mention a lot of sanding) to get the floor to a presentable condition. Water-based poly is a bad idea for floors. Sure, it goes on easy and doesn't smell, but every time you leave a wet sponge or other damp item on the floor, expect permanent stains. This stuff, by contrast was pretty stinky to put on, but repels water like a newly waxed car. The fumes were relatively short lived. Our house has excellent exhaust ventilation so we could have easily slept in the house and not gotten a headache. Be warned that this item is mail order only and takes a while to get delivered. If your delivery gets damaged and returned (mine did) it can really put a damper on your project schedule. I did lambs wool applicator for two coats and brushed on the last. I would brush two coats if I had to do again. Don't bother trying to clean and save your brush. This stuff is so sticky, tough, durable, and hard that even a very thoroughly cleaned brush will be rock solid the next day. Make sure you mask carefully and don't drip or spill. Be very careful peeling your tape. My foam knee pads lightly scratched the 3 day old surface cured in low humidity. Make sure your furniture has felt pads to protect the finish. It does stay soft for two weeks or so even in relatively low humidity. To me, however, I am glad I stuck to my guns and insisted this particular product. I am extremely happy with the results.

DO NOT USE...The overall look was exactly what we were looking for with the low sheen finish the matte poly provides. After following the instructions on the can very carefully, as I am incredible particular, and applying four coats of poly(this was not my first time finishing floors) with a lambswool applicator, we waited an entire week before allowing light traffic use over the surface. We have 2 medium sized dogs and after a couple weeks I started to notice a few scratches that were not heavy enough to indent into the floor, but just to cause the poly to turn white which I could then flake off. A few weeks later the seams in the floor began doing something very similar and the scratching only intensified. Needless to say I am forced to completely refinish brand new solid oak floors and have wasted a ton of my time and labor as well as material costs associated. Rust-Oleum(Owner of Varathane) did refund me the cost of the poly only, but would not pay to have the floors refinished. In our back and forth emails over a 3 week period they never blamed me for improper application, yet never claimed the product to be defective. With the lack of clarity I would highly recommend using a different product/brand altogether.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ONLY polyurethane for high traffic areas It is a shame Home Depot doesn't stock this in their stores, it is online only. I was steered towards this product more than 15 years ago by a guy who did floors for a living. This is what they use for bowling lanes. MUCH better than the Minwax products. I have an office floor I refinished 15 years ago and it still looks like the day I did it. They also make water based products which are probably fine for low-traffic areas. But if you want maximum durability use an oil based polyurethane, and of those products this is the best you can buy.

Was used over a dark stain on a 'distressed' rustic-look pine floor so the amber coloring didn't change anything for us. Easy to apply. Don't get in a hurry and you won't have bubbles. Use good quality lambs wool applicator. The oil based is a tough finish and has held up well. The matte was exactly what we were looking for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Damaged cans The product is fine but I have an issue with the shipping. Both cans arrived damaged. It looked like someone used them as a football and one was leaking. The damage was not done during shipping since the box it arrived in was not damaged.
