Questions & Answers

Can this be applied on top of primer?

Can this be applied on top of primer?
Asked by: Brian
I applied my on top of paint. I used two coats of primer, two coats of paint and three coat of the polyurethane on my kitchen table. I would test on something first. I would not stop at the primer. It is a different consistency than paint.

I want to use this over a untreated (no paint or varnish) pine bed. Should I apply a sealer first?
Asked by: bedmaker
Depends. It is a water base and as such without a sealer the wood fibers can lift and make a less than desirable finish. Most woods need a treatment of sorts before water based finish is applied only oil base will not lift wood fibers. Learned this the hard way. Even products that claim to be a primer with paint will leave a less than smooth finish. Of course the finer the sand paper i.e. 400 or 600 grit will have smaller pores and produce a smoother finish, but will not take to staining as well as a more porous surface. So if using water base stain then light sanding with very fine grit before an application of polyurethane or oil rubbed finish is applied will give a mirror like surface, but I digress.

Can this be wiped-on using a cloth or does it need to be thinned?
Asked by: Caitlin
Happy to clear things up, Caitlin! Rust-Oleum Varathane Ultimate Polyurethane is a ready-to-use product and doesn't need to be thinned. We recommend applying it with a good quality, synthetic bristle brush, foam brush, or applicator for the best results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Is this product safe to use with food? My husband turned and carved a wooden spoon. Next, he sanded smooth and 'sealed' with epoxy. Is your Polyurethane safe for (3) final coat?
Asked by: McFish
Personally I would not apply any hard finish to wood used for food. I would treat it similar to a wood cutting board.

Customer Reviews

1 qt. Clear Semi-Gloss Water-Based Interior Polyurethane (2-Pack) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 174.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR WATER BASE This product will dry hard very quickly within 24 hours. Ready for normal use in 72 hours. Instructions say do not use roller due to air bubbles. You need for sure a SOFT brush to avoid brush marks. I deducted a star as this product is way too thin and can almost dry to the touch in 15 mins. On a large area you need to be fast. I learned the hard way and also learned the next time around to put a lot more on with a roller and a final smooth out with the correct brush. I did 3 coats and sanded lightly with 400 grit between each coat. I used this product over flat black latex paint but also learned the hard way DO NOT SAND YOUR FINAL PAINT COAT before applying this polyurethane. Although others think it looks great, to me I should have spent more time on the preparation of the MDF board I used especially with hole filling etc. This product no doubt will ENHANCE any defects you may already have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE most fantastic polyurethane ever This polyurethane is the only one I've found that leaves a true "satin" finish... not shiny, not matte. It spreads nicely, doesn't run, doesn't leave streaks. Once cured, hardens to a factory-like finish. Best. Stuff. Ever. Worth every penny. As a side note, the way I found this was because last year I used the Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations Kit for a project and loved the polyurethane that came in it. When I went to find the same stuff for my new project (I'm not doing the kit this time), I called Rustoleum and learned that this product is the same one that came with the kit. (Which I also highly recommend.)

Painted an old Dresser in chalk paint to use as a media center and used this Polyurethane as the finish instead of waxing. Waxing is a lot of work....buffing and buffing. Plus waxing is a temporal finish that does not stand up to every day wear. This Polyurethane is a PERMAMENT finish! Beautiful satin finish applied easily with a good brush right in my front room. Very little odor.............. I will be using this finish on all my projects!! I LOVE the FINAL RESULT!!! See my photo below..............So easy to use. You will not be disappointed in the final outcome of your project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to use with great results This is a very good product and have been using for about a year now. I would recommend two or three coats , just as the direction states and you will be very pleased with the results. I have used both high quality brushes but also a foam roller and it turned out great for my larger surfaces. I redo furniture and it has been a great way to add sheen and protection to both painted, glazed(if it's dried long enough) and stained pieces.

I did Annie Sloan white chalk paint on my kitchen cabinets and this product was great. It is thin, crystal clear, easy to use with no odor. It comes in a two pack only. I used both and reordered. However, the second order was not the same product as pictured. It was a white label but said a lot of the same things- " crystal clear, satin, fast drying time" etc - and the product looked the same milky white and dries clear. I haven't noticed a difference- so maybe the company changed the label? I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the product change and not getting the same thing I got the first time.

Sprays easily enough and for the short time I've had it applied, has held up well. My low rating is based on the poor performance of Rustoleum as a company. I ordered 6 gallons of this from Home Depot. The product was drop shipped from Rustoleum (meaning HD never touched it). When it arrived, the boxes they were in were in very good shape and showed no signs of rough handling during transit. What I found inside however, was a different story. The cans were pretty dented, beat up and generally in poor shape...it's a wonder they weren't leaking. Given the boxes (both inner and outer) showed no damage, some employee at Rustoleum shipped these to me in that state. Not impressed. Rustoleum's mission is to make new customers and keep them......this was the last order they get from me.....I'm going back to General Finishes.
