Very pleased with results and how quickly my floor was ready to go!
Granted, it wasn't a job that I would have chosen, but once I had painted my vinyl flooring, there was nothing else to do but for providing a good sealer over it. I didn't have the funds to replace my old linoleum flooring, and wouldn't in the near future; so I found a floor paint at Home Depot that appeared to be the correct type of paint for a floor - got that done, but it had a rough surface and just didn't feel right on the bathroom floor. It didn't look as good as I'd hoped, but then it wasn't a product made for painting a vinyl floor! I knew I'd have to use some type of poly over it. This was the easy part; clean floor well, and apply with a pad, two coats were all done within a days time! fast drying, clear and now it feels like a floor should! I'm even happy with my stencil I did on one side... before the 2X coating. I'm happy!

Good Polyurethane
I have two spare rooms that I plan to renovate but I’m not ready to start yet so I’m trying this product out on a scrap piece of wood for now. Last time I varnished a bedroom I used oil based varnish and it took forever too dry and the place smelt of varnish for over a year. I decided then that next time I would use water based. Also with oil based I had to keep recoating it because it wouldn’t flatten properly. Because I had to use 3 or 4 coats it really darkened the wood and I had already stained it to make it a little darker, so it became much darker than I wanted. Also with water based the fumes never seem to be as bad though you should make sure to provide adequate ventilation anyway. I like that you don’t have to sand this between coats, as long as you do it within 3 days, because that is a pain to do. It would seem to give good coverage with just two coats and doesn’t change the color much. You should also take notice of the instructions to “Allow to dry 24 hours before light use and 7 days for optimal cure”. You don’t want to ruin it by walking on it too soon. Also remember that if it is humid it may take longer to dry and fully cure.

It took 3 coats unlike the advertised 2 doses. I sanded with 220 between coats because it tends to raise the grain especially on the first coat (this is pretty regular actually). It's really thick and hard to spread evenly so that part was hard work. I'd use the regular stuff and do 4 coats if I had to do it again because of the ease in spreading it with the lighter formula..The job turned out fine but was more work than expected.

Response from Rust-OleumSupportMay 20, 2022
Thank you for sharing your experience! While typically only 2 coats of Rust-Oleum Varathane Ultra Thick 2X Water-Based Floor Polyurethane is needed, an additional coat may be needed if the surface is more worn or porous. Please keep in mind, each gallon has a recommended coverage of 260-320 square feet, and the initial coat will be on the lower end if the floor is bare wood. Applying the product thinner than intended, will require additional coats.

Beautiful.
I just finished two coats of this product over a hardwood floor that I painted. The paint is not holding well in some areas and was advised to cover floors in polyurethane. What I love about this product - 1. no odor - a huge plus, 2. drys fast, 3. the self-leveling worked, 4. using a thicker product with fewer coats was wonderful - 2 coats look great. I purchased satin and love the shine. I have no idea how this will hold up. It has only been 48 hours but we are able to walk on it. So far - so great.
