A: Happy to clear things up! While Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane is not considered a waterproofing finish, it does provide water resistance. To help ensure the longevity of the coating, we recommend allowing it to fully cure before exposing it to water, and using coasters and trivets whenever possible. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: Thanks for reaching out. Different sheens of Varathane Water Base Interior Polyurethane cannot be mixed together to create a different sheen. Each sheen (Gloss, Semi-Gloss, Stain & Matte) formula incudes specific ingredients to achieve those specific sheens. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6
