Do not use over paint or over white surface
This has turned my white painted floor yellow since first painted July 2021. It wasn't too bad because the bright white became a cream with the poly added. But overtime it has turned yellow with obvious large patches of yellowing where it settled-NOT self leveling over wood. Luckily the bathroom is small. But I will need to sand this off and repaint.

Response from Rust-OleumSupportJul 19, 2022
That is not what we like to hear! While our Varathane Ultimate Water-Based Polyurethane should not be applied to floors, it should not yellow unless applied too heavily, or exposed to sunlight. If the polyurethane is allowed to pool in uneven sections of the flooring, these thicker areas may yellow. For the best results, apply multiple thin, even coats. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum
    Soft and Scratches Easily
    Feels like soft plastic, and scratches very easily. Gently rubbing a fingernail on it to test the surface hardness, and it scrapes right off without much effort. Other objects resting on the table left deep marks. Very disappointed.

      LOVE THIS STUFF
      I bought this product because i wanted something water based, fast drying and easy to use. This product filled all of those requirements. I used it on a carpetball table i was building. It goes on with a milky look but dries perfectly clear. On a warm, low humidity day it dries really fast. I will probably use this product on most of my projects BECAUSE it is so easy to use and clean up after.

      Absolutely superior product. Never yellows, goes on smoothly, and provides a durable, long lasting finish. It’s the only poly top coat I’ll use and I refinish a lot of furniture for my small business. Highly recommend for all the qualities above but also the ease of soap and water clean up.

      I have been working on refinishing a family heirloom 100 year old china hutch. After completely stripping the old finishes (paint, stain and varnish), I applied the Varathane Water Based trio of refinishing products which consisted of water based prestain, water based stain and water based polyurethane. 1qt of the prestain and stain were enough, but I needed an extra quart of the clear satin water based interior polyurethane to finish the project. This is the first time using a water based stain and polyurethane and I am not sure I would use water based stain/polyurethane again. Clean up was easy, but I found the water based polyurethane difficult to work with. The water based polyurethane dried so quickly, it was hard to control brush marks. You have to work fast! I was working in the garage and some days were so warm, the polyurethane dried almost as fast as I brushed it on and brushing over the dried polyurethane caused inconsistencies in the finish that needed sanding and never gave me a professional result. The label clearly states temperature ranges, but I applied while definitely too warm. The polyurethane lifted some of the stain and mixed with the polyurethane causing it not to dry clear, but with milky spots. I had to make sure to clean up any areas that had milky residue. Overall the project turned out nicely, but there are certainly many imperfections. If you know what to expect and don't mind a few imperfections, then water based stain and polyurethane are good options for refinishing projects.
