A: Great question, Kathy. With proper application, Rust-Oleum Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane will not yellow surfaces, and it will dry to a crystal clear finish. However, please keep in mind that if the paint is water-based, and it was applied to bare wood, the surface may yellow from tannin bleed from the wood. To prevent this, we recommend priming bare wood with an oil-based primer before using a water-based paint. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14
A: Happy to help, Ellen! The Rust-Oleum Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane is designed for application to interior wood surfaces such as furniture and trim. It is not suitable for use on kitchen countertops as it is not formulated to withstand kitchen countertop activity and cleaning. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 8
A: Great question, Katty! Rust-Oleum Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane typically does not need more than 2 coats, but additional coats can be applied if needed. You will want to wait at least 2 hours between coats. If more or heavier coats are applied, the cure time can be slowed some. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: Hi Anthony, yes, our Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane may be applied over fully cured paint; we recommend allowing 7 days for the paint to fully cure before applying the polyurethane. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2
