          Worked perfectly forgot I needed
          I needed to refinish a dining room table and a butcher block countertop with a resilient finish, protective wood from scratches and hot items. I did a lot of research and decided not to pay attention to negative reviews because it sounded like the problems came from user error. This product is perfect. It is easy to apply with a high-quality, synthetic, bristle brush, it dries very fast. The finish strong and smooth and beautiful. Just remember to stir frequently when applying.

            gloss finish
            I needed a high gloss finish on a table I was repurposing. I knew I needed multiple coats. The water based Varathane worked well

            NOT Scratch resistant, very soft
            I followed the instructions on the can to the letter. I applied three coats, with ample drying time (4 hours between coats). Then I applied 2 more coats, sanding before each. Then I let it dry for three days to cure before normal use. So far it has been soft to the touch, scratched by my fingernail and soft, blunt, plastic objects, and gouged by my cat. Very unhappy with this finish.

            Let's talk about this, Jamie! While Rust-Oleum Varathane Water-Based Ultimate Polyurethane does fully dry after 3 days in ideal conditions, a complete cure can take up to 7 days. Once fully cured, the coating will have reached full hardness. We recommend avoiding scratching the surface before that point.

              Perfection
              I sanded and stained a wine barrel lid. I didn’t want shiny, glossy, or even a hint of satin but I did need to protect it from water marks. This was going to be a table top on a pool house. This made the wood look so natural and raw. No sheen whatsoever. It dries fast and had practically no odor. Love this stuff!!!!

                We need to know more to get to the bottom of this, Tyler. Varathane Water Based Polyurethane dries to a crystal clear finish when applied as directed on the label. Give us a call at 800-901-0411, so we can hear more about your application and try to make things right.

                Best Water Based Poly!
                Great product! Goes on very smooth, dries fast! Nice clear finish that doesn't detract from the natural look and feel of the wood. Only downside is that I can't seem to find it in a gallon sized can!

                Do not use over paint or over white surface
                This has turned my white painted floor yellow since first painted July 2021. It wasn't too bad because the bright white became a cream with the poly added. But overtime it has turned yellow with obvious large patches of yellowing where it settled-NOT self leveling over wood. Luckily the bathroom is small. But I will need to sand this off and repaint.

                That is not what we like to hear! While our Varathane Ultimate Water-Based Polyurethane should not be applied to floors, it should not yellow unless applied too heavily, or exposed to sunlight. If the polyurethane is allowed to pool in uneven sections of the flooring, these thicker areas may yellow. For the best results, apply multiple thin, even coats. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum
                  Poly as it should be
                  Coated a piece on 24"x24" Ash 6 times with a paint brush. Sanding between every 2 coats. It did well. I would use again on small projects.
