    A:  We appreciate your interest! Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Spar Urethane is intended for use on exterior wood surfaces. Wood surfaces do need to be sanded prior to application.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for reaching out, Nic. Rust-Oleum Varathane Spar Urethane should be applied to a good, sound surface and is not recommended for application with a sprayer. It is also not recommended for foot traffic. We'd like to hear more about your project and try to help make a more appropriate recommendation. Please call our product support team at (800) 556-7737. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 4

        Answer This Question

        A:  Great question, Jackie! We recommend an exterior stain such as Rust-Oleum Varathane Gel Stain under Rust-Oleum Varathane Spar Urethane. We recommend a minimum of 8 hours before you apply your spar urethane. We hope this helps!

          Thank you for reaching out and sharing your experience. Please keep in mind, your weather conditions and thickness of the coating can affect the drying times of Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Spar Urethane. Higher humidity or poor air circulation will slow the listed dry times.

          Good Product - Thick and Slow
          Varathane's Clear Gloss Spar Urethane provides a tough, UV-resistant finish that looks about like other SPAR finishes, but with a golden color tint. Out of the can, the urethane is thick and looks a dingy tan, but once it dries it provides a nice warm tone to the wood (see photos). Being so thick, it requires reasonable care and a good brush during application, and I found I couldn't get a completely flat or blemish-free finish, but I didn't expect to with an exterior-grade Spar urethane. The product did not dry nearly as fast as the advertised “dries to the tough in as little as two hours”, so I waited over 24 hours between coats, lightly sanding in between each. It took the recommended 3 coats to get a uniformly glossy finish, and although the can indicates coverage up to 150 sq-ft/qt, I suspect it won't get that much at 3 coats. The finish seems tough, but it will take a few months in the Texas sun to verify the quality of the UV- protectors. So far it's a good product and a fair value, but I'm not so sure of the “fast drying” claim.
