A: Happy to help, Rudi. Varathane Matte Water Based Polyurethane cannot be applied over Varathane Satin Water Based Floor Finish Polyurethane, it cannot be applied to floors. Varathane Matte Water Based Floor Finish Polyurethane can be applied over the Floor Finish Stain. The last sheen of the last coat applied will be the final sheen of the surface. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-Gal-Clear-Matte-Water-Based-Interior-Polyurethane-2-Pack-286820/205926960 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6
A: Happy to help, Paige! As long as this is interior, generally painted surfaces can accept a polyurethane. It's a good idea to make sure you allow proper dry time of the paint, before considering use of the Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Polyurethane. Additionally, a test application should be considered to ensure desired results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 1
A: Thank you for reaching out! If applying directly to bare wood, you may experience slight grain raise after the first coat. Lightly sand the surface smooth using 220-320 grit sandpaper, then move on to the next coat. You may also sand lightly just before the final coat to ensure an ultra-smooth final finish. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2
A: Manufacturer says it doesn't require sanding, but I always lightly sand with 320 or 400 grit between every coat and get excellent results.
