A: Thank you for reaching out, Mike. Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Polyurethane should be applied between 55-90° F and with a relative humidity below 85%. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14
A: Depends on traffic and environment. High traffic high temperature variations 60-80 degrees it'll last for 3-5 years before cracking. Light traffic low temperature variations 68-72 it should last for 10-15 years.
A: Let's clear things up, Elaine. While our Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Polyurethane provides excellent protection to wooden surfaces it is not intended for floor surfaces. The heavy foot traffic will cause the polyurethane to crack and peel over time. Instead, we would recommend using our Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Floor Finish as it is specifically formulated for high traffic areas. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-gal-Clear-Satin-350-VOC-Oil-Based-Floor-Finish-Polyurethane-214552/305577005 -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14
A: It's all about the desired sheen! For example, a semi-gloss finish on the Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Interior Polyurethane, will be slightly duller than the gloss finish. Please note that this doesn't change the performance characteristics, but it's going to be more visual. We hope this helps! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 1
