Can it be used on a painted surface

what tint should be added to match the amber tint of oil based polyurethane?

I want to match adjacent oil poly finished flooring, but without fumes
Asked by: Greg
Happy to help, Greg. Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-based Ultimate Polyurethane is not formulated to be tinted. The addition of colorant to these can affect product coverage, drying, and performance. We recommend using the oil-based version if the amber tint is desired and ensure that the area is well-ventilated - with a fan if necessary. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

I am putting up new oak railing that I am staining with Varathane Antique White Interior Wood Stain. Should I use Matte or Satin Varathane water-base interior palyurethane?
Asked by: Chas
We like the way you think! Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane is suitable for use on stained interior wood surfaces. The sheen you use is up to you! Please keep in mind that matte surfaces may hold on to dirt more and may need to be cleaned more in high- traffic areas. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

It has not been as durable as I would have hoped. They no longer advertise "Tough Enough To Skate On" because it's just not the product it used to be. I've used it a few times on various projects and it did scratch and scuff. Application is easy and it does level things out a little but can be difficult to avoid getting brush strokes or "eggshell" finish over a painted, cured surface. It's also not crystal clear. When used over white paint it has yellowing and not in a good way. Used this when we redid cabinets on a house we were flipping for a family member and I was so embarrassed. I often use General Finishes varnishes but wanted to give this one a try since it was readily available. Thought I was putting the finishing touch on the project with a good strong poly coat on top of the primed, painted doors, and came in the next morning hoping we'd be ready to hang the doors back on. I was so frustrated to find that anywhere the Varathane had been brushed into the corners of cabinets it looked yellow and dirty. If I wanted a patina I would have bought a product that did that effect. I know it wasn't the doors because after this happened we experimented by pouring a little of it onto a bit of plastic and letting it dry. Dried yellowish. Had to sand all over again and put more coats of paint to cover the yellowish effect the Varathane had. If you are not painting over a cool or white hue this product can work. Clean-up is easy, it dries quickly and evenly, it just isn't as durable and dries off-white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great. Dries fast between coats. Stuff between coats 220... Worked great. Dries fast between coats. Stuff between coats 220 grit or #0000 steel wool. Then follow with air pressure/clean tack cloth between coats. I’m not a water based finisher type of guy as I spray Kremlin with pre-cat lacquers 99% of the time. Used for my old mantel beam for my fireplace

I was able to do several coats each day. It sanded well between coats with 320 grit paper. I will continue to use this product for sure.
