Questions & Answers

How quickly does this dry when hvlp sprayed? Is it thin enough to hvlp spray?

Asked by: Sean
You've come to the right place, Sean. Rust-Oleum Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane should only be applied using a high quality synthetic bristle brush. We don't recommend applying it with a sprayer because it will adversely affect the drying and performance of the product. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Is this product good for wood floor paint?
Asked by: PC
While Rust-Oleum Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane is suitable for use on interior surfaces, we do not recommend if for use on floor surfaces. This coating will not hold up to foot traffic. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Water Based Poly This is a good water based polyurethane that is easy to apply and clean up afterwards. The product is a thick milky fluid that turns clear when it dries. The milky color helps because I can see where it has been applied. It is very thick but the claim that one coat is enough is not accurate as I had to apply 3 coats on my raw wood shelf to get the smooth finish I desired. Because it is water-based, it does not have a strong smell and is not volatile which makes it ideal for babies' or children's furniture. It also dries pretty quick. I will stick to the oil based polys for my floors or items that need to endure a lot of use and wear, but this is good for furniture or shelves and the clean up with soap and water instead of mineral spirits is very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good poly top coat! This Matte Triple Thick Polyurethane by Varathane is an outstanding top coat. In my woodworking I use a lot of blue pine which makes beautiful furniture, cabinets, signs and many other projects, but is a very, very thirsty wood. It is not uncommon to have to put six or even seven top coats on it to seal it completely. But with using the Triple Thick Polyurethane by Varathane I can seal off the blue pine with one, or at the most two coats. Seeing as this is a water based polyurethane when you open the can the poly is white, but will turn clear as it drys, however, as it dries there might be some light amber coloring . It is also very thick! But that is normal when using a triple thick polyurethane. And another plus about this polyurethane, being a water based product it cleans up with just soap and water. This is a super product and I will be back to Home Depot for more of it!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thick and Thin. This seems to be a nice product for indoors. It is very thick , levels nicely, low voc. When you open the product it's is Mikly white this clears as it dries. Good for building up a finish dries fast and levels nicely. I mainly use oil base products and was happy with this product for it Low VOC along with being much clearer than oil base . See my pictures where the darker yellowing color is the Oil base product from the same manufacture other than being exterior the Same color Clear. Drying time is quick however it takes a while if your sanding between coatings. My sample pictures were on dirty wood to see how long it really took to,sand the product not peel it. Overall on a finished product I was happy with end results. Time will tell if this is really as durable as an oil base product. Easy to apply, fills voids , clear . Easy to clean up, low VOC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Triple Thick Polyurethane by VARATHANE 1 Qt. This Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane is 3X thicker than traditional polyurethane. The advanced water-based, self-leveling formula allows most wood projects to be complete with just one coat. I applied one coat on my white painted hand rail leading to my basement. With this Matte finish providing a soft look, the railing stays cleaner than before. I just wipe with a damp cloth occasionally. After heavy usage of the railing, I see no signs of wear or scratching. I thought I was going to have to apply at least 2 coats for my desired finish, but the one coat was all that was needed. I did notice a slight "ambering" of the white color, very slight...as advertised. Be sure to follow all of the instructions for the best results. This is NOT your traditional Varathane. Use a high quality synthetic brush. Cleans up with soap and water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to apply The Matte Triple Thick Polyurethane is easy to apply with a brush. Clean up of the brush can be done with soap and water. The Polyurethane is white when it is applied and dries to almost a clear finish. I painted it over painted white stool. When it dried, it has a slight yellow tint, but is only noticeable under certain light. This would not be a problem if use over wood tones. Although this only took one step, I prefer using multiple coats of the traditional Polyurethane.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1 coat As all the products I have tried from Varathane have worked great so did this triple thick polyurethane. When you first open the can it looks milky but it does dry clear. I did notice a little amber coloring but it was very slight, but it does state that it can occur on light colored wood. I applied it with a synthetic brush and applied it in the grain direction. Clean up of the brush was easy just soap and water as it is a water based formula.

It worked beautifully! The product is super thick, which I think made application so much easier. It is self leveling and since it's water based so easy to clean up. I highly recommend this product and will use it exclusively from now on. One note: It happened to be super humid the day I was using the polyurethane, so it did take a little bit longer to dry to tough. But I expected this to be the case.
