Q:Can this be tinted? Example green or blue?

1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  We appreciate your interest. Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Spar Urethane is a ready-to-use product, and we do not recommend adding tint to it. Doing so can prevent the product from properly drying and can cause a more opaque finish. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    Q:Can I use this on wood cedar fence
    by|May 16, 2021
    3 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes, but the wood should be dry for several weeks before the first application. Wood should be below 15% moisture before adding any stain or other finish.

    by|May 16, 2021

    A:  Yes! Most definitely.... I used it on mine and it turned out great. The important thing is to coat it before it starts turning.

      A:  Hi Vinay, while our Varathane Oil-Based Spar Urethane may be applied to a cedar fence, our Wolman RainCoat Oil-Based Sealer will fit the task much better: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Wolman-5-Gal-Raincoat-Clear-Oil-Based-Water-Repellent-Sealer-12385/204642362 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2

          A:  Varathan was once used on roller skating floors before the two-part urethane came on the market. Spar Varathan is all the more durable. Make sure the wood is below 15% moisture before application. Read all prep work that is noted on the product. I hope your project comes out better than expect.

          by|May 16, 2021

          A:  Thank you for reaching out, Ron. Rust-Oleum Varathane Spar Urethane Oil-Based is not recommended for application to horizontal surfaces. We'd be happy to discuss your project and try to help make a recommendation. Please reach out to our Product Support Team at (800) 373-6333. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 4

            Excellent product. We use it in many applications. We used this to finish barn wood, sanded and stained, in our band room. I expect it to hold up very well to typical abuse.

            Great varnish. Holds up well out doors and dries to a hard finish. It is pretty thick so thinning gives much better results. Dries very clear!!!

            I have always trusted Varathane when building outdoor furniture. My latest project was a pair of Red Oak Tile inset end tables.

            Stirred and stirred, still too slow drying and dries unevenly.
