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.

Economical option
This Spar varnish is just the right size! I needed to refinish an outdoor table top and I did not need a whole gallon of Spar Varnish to complete the job. This quart size was just what I needed. After sanding the table top, I applied the varnish and the quart size finished the job with just a little bit to dispose of. And this has two quart containers, so it allows you the flexibility that a whole gallon does not. It went on smoothly with a brush and look stunning. A great buy for small-sized projects!

I applied 1 to 2 coats in some weathered areas. I was very pleased with the final appearance. It appears that it will wear very similar to the spar varnish that I have used in other areas. I will choose this product for my future needs. It met all my expectations.
