Q:I saw the 1-2 hour dry 'to the touch' time, but what is the working time?
by|Aug 18, 2020
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for reaching out, Jose! The working time if Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Ultimate Polyurethane will vary depending on how thick the coating is applied and your weather conditions. We recommend applying in lower humidity and applying near the lower end of the temperature range will give you more time to work. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

            DO NOT use this finish!
            Like many of the other reviews, I had very bad results with this product. I've been using minwax poly for 2 decades without a problem. This product applies very different, the results are hit and miss, and sometimes the outcome is catastrophic. Attention Rustoleum - please don't respond with the instructions about the optimal temp and humidity for this product because I obeyed them. Look at the picture on this review and explain to me why your product dries like that sometimes. It's happened three different times in three different places on this project. When applied, the product leveled OK (albeit thick and difficult to spread) , but as it dried it would dry leaving craters and ripples like you see in the pic. And yes, I stirred it adequately. There's no contamination on the surface of this table - it was sanded down to bare wood. I've had to scrape off your crummy finish once but like a fool bought it again thinking the first can I had was aged. Nope, the new can acted just like the old one. NEVER AGAIN WILL I BUY THIS PRODUCT. I will buy minwax from somewhere else. Shame on home depot for carrying this garbage.

              I have a lot of experience with using Polyurethane and needed to finish some oak shelving that I made. (as an aside, once I used a water based poly and would never do that again) I bought the Varathane oil satin at Home Depot since they no longer carry Minwax poly. Of course this is all about money and obviously Varathane gave Home Depot a better deal. Fine with me up until I used this product. It is more like a gel than a liquid and required extra effort to spread. It went on with difficulty and did not dry fast as advertised. I returned it and went to the local hardware store to buy Minwax oil satin. There was no need to remove the coat of Varathane, Just let it dry, light sand and go over it with the Minwax product. I can't imagine that anyone with experience with Minwax would ever use the Varathane product.

              Thank you for your feedback! For the best results, we recommend applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Ultimate Polyurethane with a good-quality natural bristle brush. You also want to be usre you are applying only when air (ambient) temperature is between 55-90°F (13- 32°C) and relative humidity is below 85% in an area with proper ventilation. This will help with drying and curing of the coating.

                very good product
                I think that some Minwax fan is sabotaging the reviews for this product. The finish that i have observed is quite superior to most that I’ve experienced. Very clear and hard finish. I have used Minwax polyurethane as well, also a very good product. If the cans were not labeled I would be hard pressed to tell them apart. Spotty availability in the single quart offering prevents me from giving it 5 stars.

                  Bubbles, streaks and globs
                  I am experienced using polyurethane. I usually use Minwax but bought this since Home Depot did not carry that brand, thinking it would be a comparable product. It is AWFUL, do not buy it!! I thought it would get better with subsequent coats but by the 3rd coat I am convinced this is garbage. No matter what application method I use and how gently I apply, there are bubbles and streaks, almost as if the surface of the wood is repelling the poly. I’ll never buy this again, lesson learned.

                    terrible finish and sandability
                    Used minwax for years and had great success wirh it. Dried qyickly, easy to work with, sand able and laid on multiple nice smooth coats but then i had to switch to this product. Its still tacky four days after coating and i can’t sand it because of that. On top of that the second coat has rippled surface and fish eyes. I will Never again use this product

                      Doesn't dry to a satin finish
                      Like a number of other reviews, this is way too glossy to be considered 'satin'. Glad I only tried it on a very small area rather than wasting a lot of time. Hope I can find Minwax somewhere.

                      Thank you for sharing your experience, Sue! To ensure the proper sheen, Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Ultimate Polyurethane needs to be thoroughly stirred prior to each use and often during your application. This allows the flatting agents to be evenly distributed and not settled in the can.

                          This product is a poor substitute for the Minwax products.
                          I purchased the Minwax equivalent to this product found at Home Depot. Apparently, I purchased a few of the last Minwax cans at Home Depot, when I returned I was unable to find any Minwax products. I tried out the Varathane stain and Ulitmate Polyurethane products from Home Depot, big mistake. When I use the current cans I have I will not be back for Varathane products. Their products are thicker (even when stirred) and have much longer dry times and with their Ultimate Polyurethane (oil based) is thicker and leaves streaks.Not happy.

For the best finish with Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Ultimate Polyurethane, it is essential that it is applied with a good-quality natural bristle brush and applied within the recommend weather conditions.

                            Very disappointed with this product
                            Such a disappointment using this product. Left brush marks, very difficult to apply, very long dry time, and lots of wasted time. I thoroughly the product before applying like recommended, used a quality brush, and still there were terrible brush marks. I sanded in between coats and really took my time to try to correct the uneven finish. I gave up and went with Minwax. Much better.

                            That's not what we like to hear, Christopher! To ensure the best finish with Rust-Oleum Varathane Oil-Based Ultimate Polyurethane, we recommend lightly sanding between coats if a coat has dried for more than 12 hours.
