A: Happy to help, Chris! For best results using Varathane Water Based Polyurethane, apply using a good quality, synthetic bristle brush, foam brush, or applicator. Allow the finish to dry a minimum of 2 hours and then re-coat, a minimum of 2 coats are required. Re-coat only when previous coats have dried clear and feel hard (no longer tacky to touch). A powder should develop when lightly sanded. If any coat has dried more than 24 hours, lightly sand before re-coating to avoid brush marks. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6

A: Thank you for reaching out, Robin. Rust-Oleum Varathane Ultimate Polyurethane Water-Based is not recommended for exterior applications. This product is formulated for use on vertical interior surfaces, like wood furniture, or trim. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 4
A: Thank you for reaching out, Jeannine. Rust-Oleum Varathane Ultimate Polyurethane Water Based is not recommended for application to rattan. This product will dry to a hard and rigid finish, and should not be applied to flexible surfaces. The movement of the substrate can cause the dried polyurethane to crack and delaminate. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 4
