A: We hate to disappoint, Lars, but Rust-Oleum Varathane Soft Touch Polyurethane has been discontinued. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: Yes. I've used this over painted wood many, many times. Once cured, it's scuff resistant and very durable. It's stain resistant if cleaned in a reasonable time frame. It's not recommended for floors but for regular painted surfaces, once cured, works beautifully. The finish is smooth, soft to the touch and strong. This is my favorite topcoat for my painted or stained projects - or even just to seal raw wood.
A: Yes! I’ve used this over painted wood many, many times with great success. Not only does it have the perfect sheen and softest feel, it gives fantastic protection. Once applied, use the piece lightly for the first 30 days so that it can fully cure. After that, it’s very hard and scuff protective. It seems to harden even more as more time goes by. This topcoat has never let me down. I typically apply 3 thin coats with a Detailers Choice Applicator Sponge- found here at HD in the automotive detailing department. That’s the fastest and easiest way ever to apply a topcoat that’s flash and streak- free.
A: Great question! Yes, Rust-Oleum Varathane Soft Touch Polyurethane can be used on painted wood and will offer scuff resistance. You will want to ensure the paint is dry and in good, sound condition prior to application. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: I requested Home Depot let me know when it was available again. Got an email this week that it was now in stock so I just ordered mine.
A: Hi Amira, our Varathane Soft Touch Polyurethane is now going to be our Varathane Ultimate Water-Based Matte Polyurethane: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Matte-Water-Based-Interior-Polyurethane-262074/305587650 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2
A: No, this is not recommended to be applied with an HVLP spray gun.
A: It's thin enough so I think you can. I have only brushed it on but am in the process of building bedroom suit and plan to try spraying this finish.
A: Yes it can be applied with a spray gun.
A: Happy to clear things up, Patrick! Since this product dries so quickly, we do not recommend applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Soft Touch Polyurethane with a spray gun. Spraying can likely cause dry spray on the surface. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: Yes! No need to thin. I use a Graco Finish Pro HVLP. The finish is beautiful and consistent.
A: Yes, it sprays beautifully.
