It says dry to the touch in 2 hours and after 48 hours can be lightly used (7 days full cure). When can you walk on it?

My advice is walk out the door and don't use this stuff.

1 qt. Semi-Gloss Triple Thick Polyurethane is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Thick to brush on smoothly There are no shortcuts to a good finish, and a "triple thick" finish promising one-coat coverage is no exception. First, I'm a fan of water-borne finishes, and enjoy the original Varathane Polyurethane. I usually use three coats of it on any furniture project; however, I always have to sand the first coat since the water base raises the grain. The same is true with this thicker finish, so at least two coats are required. Unfortunately the thickness of this poly makes brushing evenly nearly impossible, and it starts to set long before it "self levels". The thick coat means it must dry long after each coat to sand, and it was impossible to "sand out" the final coat to get a really smooth finish. I tried thinning the product with water, and while that helped with brushing and dry times, it still meant three or more coats. While there might be a cost savings if one buys this product and thins it to the viscosity of the original, there's certainly no time savings, and the end result is a finish that's not quite as good.

Turned yellowish color when it dried and made my project look terrible. Wish I read more reviews before buying and didn't just take the store employee recommendation. Bought to seal/protect a kitchen table and chairs we painted light grey. Was told because it was water based it would dry clear and not turn yellow. Wrong. Used a roller to apply to table top and put a pretty thin layer on... still dried with a yellowish tint. Before using this the color was great, after it looks gross. Would not recommend this product.

I used a paint brush to apply, I applied 2 -3 coats just because I wanted it to be thick, as the can states, gravity will take place, so keep an eye on it for runs and brush them as soon as possible, as the product starts to set it will be harder to remove the drips/runs

It is supposed to be self leveling but since it is so thick the self leveling properties are missed on brush strokes. I had to use a tiny roller to make the orange peel look instead of brush strokes. It does dry quickly. It is water clean up,It can be white if put on too thick.

It's easy to apply and results are quick with one coat. Yes it does raise the wood fiber but a light scuff sanding and wax wipe yields a slick interior finish.
