I'm confused how is this a water based urethane but it says it has an oil based formula? I need a water based product to use as a top coat over vinyl decals but I'm trying to find something that will be able to stand up to outdoor conditions.
Asked by: Donna
This will hold up very well outdoors. Just make sure to use the exterior version. Most water-based poly use some oil to help it settle.

Is it water or oil based? Title says water but description says it's oil base will give wood a yellow tone. Thanks.

Asked by: KK
Both versions are available. The water based truly dries crystal clear.

do I have to sand between coats? This would be impossible to accomplish on this project ( A four panel wood and metal screen..))

Asked by: sylvie
You really only need to sand before final coat. I thought I got a really nice finish until my older brother came over and "informed" me that to really get a good clean smooth finish I should have done this . Man you don't know how much I wanted him to be wrong but use a fine sandpaper over the whole service apply final coat came out like glass. Still wish he was wrong is all I can tell you!

Why is this sold only in 2-can packs?

Asked by: JugleBackBob
Factory packaging shipped to store for pick up. Just the way it is. The product is worth $30 in my opinion...I bought 4 cans even though I ended up with a whole can left over I am VERY happy with the application and appearance of this water based urethane.

1 qt. Clear Gloss Water-Based Exterior Spar Urethane (2-Pack) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 113.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy application, good self leveling (I applied on horizontal surfaces). Appearance and smoothnes... Easy application, good self leveling (I applied on horizontal surfaces). Appearance and smoothness are very good. The recommended minimum is 4 coats. I did 3 per day at 2 hour intervals. Light overall and spot sanding starting day 2. Water based makes clean up the easiest possible. Who knows how this will hold up over the long term (6 months to 10 years). Regular spar varnish and urethanes did not hold up for many years requiring frequent strip and re-finish.

If the coat has any appreciable thickness as sometimes happens on the edges the varnish dries with a white color and leaves white marks. When applying you must use only a tiny amount varnish on the brush. To get a usable coat you must carefully apply many very fine coats. With other varnishes imperfections do not turn white.

I applied 2 coats on my fence and it just rained (lightly), causing the coat to steak white blobs. Happy to submit photos. I didn’t open the last box and would like a refund for the 2 unopened cans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great topcoat over color coats I have been using interior Varathane water based poly for years as a topcoat for all my indoor trim work. It gives good gloss and does not yellow. So far I have used this exterior spar varnish formulation on a storm door and a lantern. The color coats for the storm door were latex, the lantern had a combination of enamel and latex. For the door, the varnish was applied with brush and pad. For the lantern, the varnish was applied with a cheapo HVLP spray gun (unthinned). Once dry, Varathane can be sanded and polished to a mirror finish, but I don't bother for these outdoor projects. No deterioration so far after several brutal winters and the harsh Summer sun. I am really impressed with modern waterborne technology.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and Clear This urethane went on easily, dried quickly and had a good finish. It was easy to use and still looks great. We used the urethane for an outdoor barbecue table and had many compliments during our 4th of July party!
