A: Thanks for reaching out. Varathane Oil Based Polyurethane can be applied over painted surfaces, this poly dries to a golden amber finish. For questions on specific non Rust-Oleum products, we recommend contacting the manufacturer of that coating to ensure an oil based poly can be applied over their paint. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6

A: Happy to help Steve. Varathane Oil Based Polyurethane is for indoor use only, it cannot be used outdoors, it is not UV resistant. Varathane Oil Based Spar Urethane is the correct product to use on outdoor wood surfaces, however, this is not a floor foot traffic rated coating. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Gloss-Oil-Based-Exterior-Spar-Urethane-9241H/100209410 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6
A: Happy to help, Sam! Due to how quickly Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Ultimate Polyurethane dries, we do not recommend spraying this product as it can cause dry spray on the finish. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
