Q:Is this suitable for a topcoat over multiple colors of paint exposed to the weather ?
by|Oct 12, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Great question! Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Spar Urethane can be applied to exterior painted wood surfaces will help protect again the elements and UV exposure. Please keep in mind, since this is an oil-based wood finish, it will have a warm, golden tone to it. For a crystal clear finish, we recommend Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Spar Urethane instead. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Gloss-Water-Based-Exterior-Spar-Urethane-2-Pack-250041H/202057143 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

        Q:can this be used on epoxy resin
        by|Jul 2, 2022
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Great question, Bobby! Rust-Oleum Varathane Spar Urethane Oil Based is recommended for use on stained, painted, or unfinished wood. If applying over an epoxy, a test application is suggested to confirm the desired results are achieved. Light sanding is also suggested to create a surface profile for adhesion. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 4

            Very nice finish and easy to apply. I suggest a little longer drying time than the label says. The finish is resin like.

              Using on red mahogany boat trim, goes on sticky, stays sticky for 24to28 hours in air conditioned shop. Takes 4 days to do 2 coats on 2 sides. Does not level itself well. Going back to Helmsman next time.

              Response from Rust-OleumSupportJul 20, 2020
              We understand your frustration! Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Spar Urethane dries to the touch after 2 hours and to handle after 4-6 hours. We do recommend waiting a minimum of 3 days before full use to allow the coating to fully cure. Please keep in mind that cooler temperatures, higher humidity, and heavier coats will extend the dry and cure times. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum

              SPAR Urethane is a preferred varnish for boats and yachts, therefore, a perfect selection for my house in the sunny and humid south. SPAR Urethane has a proven high-UV protection and a strong resistance to water, out on the open high seas. With that in mind, I expected this SPAR Varnish to "seal and deliver" but had no idea just how incredible Varathane's oil-based product would bring all of my new cedar shutters and cedar fence to life!! Like a magnet, Varathane pulled out the beautiful wood tannins, swirls and notches in my shutters and fence, while providing superior protection along the way. Now I can just watch the water droplets skip right off my shutters and fence. A 220 block sander and brush was used to apply three separate coats to my shutters. A spray gun (2/3 urethane to 1/3 mineral spirits) was used for two coats on my entire fence line. Very pleased with the show-stopping results and so are my neighbors. Expensive but worth the money. I anticipate going 5 - 8 years before needing to reapply. Brilliant, oil-based product.
