Questions & Answers

Will this amber like traditional oil based poly.

Home Depot list this as "Amber Satin Interior Polyurethane". The can itself and other Rust-Oleum documentation does not mention the "amber" in their description. My understanding has always been that water based polyurethanes always dry crystal clear and do not have the amber glow that is common with traditional oil based polyurethane. Will this water based polyurethane give the amber glow like the traditional oil based polys?

Good for floors?

Asked by: John
Varathane manufactures polyurethane products specifically for use on floor projects. The recommendation here is to examine their line of floor finish products before making your decision because these specific products are designed for longer life based on high traffic and impact resistance necessary for flooring applications.

US this a sealer because it doesn't say sealer.

Also the description says water cleanup and just below that it says cleanup with mineral spirits.

Can you use this water-based urethane over the varathane oil-based stain?

I'm not even sure that I saw an oil-base urethane at the store in this brand.
Asked by: DIYLady
Yes. Water-based urethanes, Varathane products included, can be used over oil-based stains. It is imperative, however, that the stain has been allowed to fully dry, usually 24 to 48 hours, and that all vapors have dissipated before attempting to apply the water-based urethane finish. It is recommended that a lint-free cloth be used to gently wipe down the project wood prior to urethane application as well. Although some comments recommend using mineral spirits to lightly dampen the cloth before wiping, I do not recommend doing so with the water-based urethane products since additional drying time is necessary and often miscalculated when finally applying the urethane finish. As long as the cloth is specifically made from lint-free material and performed in a low airborne particle environment, you should be fine.

Varathane 1 qt. Amber Satin Interior Polyurethane is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to apply and looks great We redid our kitchen in 2014 with new cabinets and I used some of the old ones to make a 2x3 foot island. Laid 1/4 " birch plywood on side and used Varathane Cognac stain, followed by their satin polyurethane.. I believe I used a 3 inch foam roller on the flat sides and a brush to get into the crevices on the door side. Yes it is a milky color in the can but dries clear. The stain and poly matched up very close to the new cabinets. I did put a second coat of the poly on but don't think it made any difference. I suggest using a small spare piece of wood as we did to see what your finish will look like. The wife and I love these products over the M brand with stain and poly in one can, which gives you one shot at the stain and finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be an excellent product A bit weird to be applying a white milky Polyurethane to dark hardwood recently stained floors, when I thought would be a clear product, but although it goes on milky white, it dries clear. I am not sure why they don't write this on the label, as would save a lot of concern/confusion for the home DIY'r. I applied first coat with a brush, and was worried about brush lines, but it all evened out perfectly within 1 hour, and dried within 2 hours, allowing a second coat (I applied by roller to be quicker), to be applied the same day. Brushes wash clean in water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine product for me! Not a pro here. But I believe most of the water based clear finishes are milky white then finish clear.. I have used the MinWax version of this product and found this to be every bit as good and may prove to be better as claimed on the label. It was very easy to apply and the finish was rich and smooth after 2nd coat. If someone is looking for clear out of the can, I think you can find that in an oil based product. p.s. used on new pine casings of Pella Designer slider.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't use on light colors! Bought this item in store. The can doesn't make it obvious that the poly is not clear, it's amber tinted. I painted this on top of light gray chalk paint, and it's all yellow now. I may have to repaint five pieces of furniture because of this. Very displeased that I wasted my money and my time on this product. Other than that, this poly goes on smoothly, dries fast, and is easy to clean up. Use on dark woods and dark paint, not light colors!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is amber!!! To say that I am extremely upset is an understatement!!! I went into the store and asked for help and told her I was refinishing my kitchen table to be a light weathered gray. She handed me the correct stain and this can of polyurethane. After spending 4 painful weeks sanding down my huge table and getting all the grooves and everything done and three coats of stain for that perfect weathered grey color I was hoping for, I used the polyurethane and was a little worried with how dark it went on but figured it would be ok and would dry clear. Wrong!!! My beautiful grey is gone. I’m literally crying as I write this!! No where on the can does it say that it’s amber and I’d like to give that sales lady a piece of my mind!! Now I have to re sand that whole thing!!! So MAD!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I went to the store intending to buy Minwax Polycrylic,... I went to the store intending to buy Minwax Polycrylic, which I love, but the store had discontinued it. It was recommended to use the Polyurathane satin, that was supposed to be equivalent to the Polycrylic. Unfortunately, it made my paintings look dull, where as the Polycrylic makes the colors more vibrant, as if they are still wet paint. I found another store that carries Polycrylic, so will go there to purchase.
