Is it OK to lay down two coats of this instead of one or is that overkill. Of course I'm asking those of you that tried this. I want to use this on my new bar counter.
Asked by: Lou
2-part epoxy resin is best for a bar top. Harder to work with, but the results cannot be beat.

Will this work on my dining room table?
Asked by: Sissy
I would think it would work well on any wood table. Just make sure you clean it well, and even lightly sand with very fine grit sandpaper.

Spraying This

Can this be sprayed on using an HVLP sprayer?
Asked by: cliu
This product is way to thick to spray. Caravans makes a thinner product that will spray well.

1 qt. Gloss Triple Thick Polyurethane is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 117.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked as advertised.PROs: High build rate. 1-coat saves... Worked as advertised.PROs: High build rate. 1-coat saves time if you aren't worried about minor grain raising.CONs: As expected, 3X applies thicker and as a result is slower to dry and cure than standard poly product. Raises grain same as standard poly, but slow to touch dry (2 hrs to over-night) and to harden to final dry-film thickness (3 days), so inter-coat sanding to remove raised grain is less convenient. Single thick coat is marginally less effective at grain filling on red oak, as expected.Next job, I'll evaluate shellac sanding sealer or standard water-based poly for first coat, with light sanding to remove residual grain nubs before finishing with 3X poly.

It is so thick that it is hard to smooth out. When it dries you can see all the brush marks even with a high quality brush. I did not save any time using it as I had to sand it back smooth and use a thinner water based urethane to try to hide the brush marks. If you are just trying to seal your project and don't care what it looks like when it is finished then this would work fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not use on countertops! I bought this instead of the usual oil based stuff that I'm used to. This stuff spreads like Elmer's Glue and looks like it. DO NOT USE A BRUSH!! You will get brush streaks everywhere! I had to recover this mess with some 220 sandpaper, then bought the oil based and applied over it. Already looks better!

Had to sand it off and it came off in little plastic beads. DO NOT BUY. Go to Rockler or Woodcraft and get the good stuff, General FInishes ARM-R-SEAL. Nearly the same price and worth it.

Did show some brush strokes when it was dry...probably could be eliminated with more diligent end to end brushing. I did do a second coat with light sanding between and that helped as well. First coad did a great job leveling out small imperfections in the surface.

I was able to securely reclose the can top using gentle taps with a rubber mallet. The urethane stayed on my brush until I transferred it to the surface I wanted to treat.
