      A:  Hmm, something seems wrong here. If your Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Polyurethane has a strong odor after applying we recommend removing the finish as it may be having a reaction with the paint. We need to know more to understand what may have gone wrong! Can you please give us a call at 800-901-0411, and we would be more than happy to assist you further? -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

          Very smooth
          I used the Matte poly on a new, bare, pine table top. Stained with Varathane carbon grey. I used 9 coats. Very little sanding with 2000 grit between the first 3 coats and then no sanding with the other 6. I final buff at completion. I let it cure for 6 weeks. It’s so smooth it looks like Formica. It dries fast! Easy to apply with a foam brush.

              delivery problem
              I can’t speak to the quality of the product, but the packing was apparently insufficient since the box arrived leaking on my porch.

                Spray with Caution
                I tried to spray this product with an airless sprayer, but it was way too heavy and wasted a lot of product. I switched to an HVLP gravity feed sprayer. You do need to spray closer to the wood than with other paints. Turned out better after switching to that method.

                  Amazing finish
                  I refinished a desk from the 1950’s. This was the finishing touch. I had never used it before and 2 coats was enough. Super easy to use and finish looks amazing

                    great product
                    This is my go-to varnish for my furniture painting business. Only complaint is that my closest store no longer carries it (because they're switching to another brand ONLY) and I have to travel a distance to get it or have it delivered.

                      We used this as a finish coat for painting our half bath floor tiles. A top coat wasn’t suggested to us, but once we finished painting, it was obvious we needed it. A quick google search suggested a water based polyurethane top coat. This was perfect. It was pretty easy to use. I would suggest however, if you need to “touch up” a spot, that you just do an entire extra layer. We have one square of tile w an extra coat and you can see it from certain light angles It dried quickly, it’s holding up great and it’s really what we needed to complete the project . It feels sturdy, like it will last a long time. The Matte is perfect

                      Quick and easy, nice looking and durable finish
                      Used for dining room table. Tried spray oil based first which was bad; sputtered a lot. Sanded off worst of sputter blobs and then used this water based stain with a brush. It was easy to apply & dried fast. Put on about 7 coats; have been using the table w/ no apparent scratches or wear so far. Some coats I didn't apply uniformly and you could see different sheens, but was easily fixed by just applying another coat. So really you only need to get the last coat right.
