I really loved this product. It was the easiest to work with. I have used the clear gloss, semi gloss and sateen finishes. I loved the look. Not sure if that is because it is a popular finish right now. Whatever the reason I have learned changing the finish is an easy way to update any furniture piece. And will updated for years to come. GOD willing.

Beautiful finish!
This product was fool proof. I have never used any poly before and all I did was read the back and do exactly what it said. I will never use another product when finishing my DIY projects. And one last note...it easily cleaned off the brush with WATER. Fast and easy!

pretty matte finish
I used this on some bamboo plywood for a countertop. I wanted water-based because anything oil-based darkens the color slightly and I wanted it to stay as blonde as possible. This brought out the beauty of the bamboo like other clear coats would but kept the blonde color. The first coat or 2 wasn't even because some was being absorbed. I put 4 coats on with light sanding in between. It almost looked like there was nothing on it - completely matte, no shine, and very pretty. It didn't show the brush strokes like many water-based products do.

Since when is Polyurethane water-based? It isn’t, your product name is extremely misleading. It should say water-based in big letters on the front of the can. Of course it shouldn't be called polyurethane in the first place. I’ll be returning this product and buying real Polyurethane. Waste of time!

Response from Rust-OleumSupportMay 30, 2018
Thank you for the feedback, Simon. Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-based Polyurethane provides excellent protection from scratches and stains, has an odorless formula, and also has easy soap and water clean-up. We do offer oil-based polyurethane, however it is only available in satin as the lowest sheen.
