Q:Can this product be used over de-waxed shellac, such as Zinsser SealCoat?
by|Jan 29, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  I do know many that have done this in the past, but if the other manufacturer has modified or changed the product it may not. We would suggest doing a small test area first.

    Q:Can this be used in a spray gun?

    Answer This Question

    A:  I have used this product in a spray gun with very good results. you just have to reduce it with mineral spirits. I would start with a 70/30 mix and go up to 50/50 Just remember, the thinner you go the easier it will run on your vertical surfaces.

      A:  Bubba - we do not have a spray spec sheet for this product at the moment, but an airless sprayer that supports 1,100 psi and a fine-finish tip like a 210 to 312 would be ideal. I used an air-assisted airless and fine-finish tip from Graco that delivered a beautiful finish with a similar ZAR® polyurethane. I suggest reaching out to the manufacturer of your spray equipment as well.

        Q:Can this product be used to refinish an existing interior flagstone hallway with an oil based floor finish?
        by|Mar 13, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Walter, ZAR Polyurethane is designed for use on wood surfaces. If you will be completely removing the existing finish on the flagstone, you could then apply DRYLOK® WetLook Sealer for a glossy finish and protection.

          A:  Robin - Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we would not recommend using ZAR® polyurethane on your sticky tiles. I suggest contacting the manufacturer of the tiles for their suggestion of a topcoat.

            Nope
            Terrible product. Applied in a room conditioned to 60 degrees on old growth fir. Even after thoroughly mixing and applying with lambs wool applicator, the sheen is uneven. Won’t be buying Zar again.

            Marshall - Sorry to see this. After fully incorporating the flattening agents by mixing thoroughly that may have settled in the can and kept a constant surface and room air temperature without air blowing across the fir during the dry time (fans or heaters which will cause uneven sheen), we'd like to discuss with you what other factors may have caused this issue. If you would be willing to call in (1-800-845-5227) to discuss, that would be helpful. We look forward to speaking with you. wtuckerugl

            Sheen not as advertised
            I've always used Zar products and have been satisfied, but not this time. I bought the "High Solids" in satin to redo kitchen cabinet doors. Coverage was excellent, but it dried to a very high gloss despite it saying satin on the label. Fortunately, I started with only 4 door, but they will all need sanded again and a different finish applied as this isn't going to work. Back to the store tomorrow :-(

              The best poly and worth every penny

              "Thank you for sharing your experience! We're delighted that our product lived up to your expectations and that you're enjoying your new birch bookshelves. It's great to hear that you found it easy to use and that it looks amazing. Your recommendation means a lot to us. We appreciate your support!
                This poly lays on very well, and is indeed very matte/flat in appearance for poly. DO NOT thin it. I am used to thinning poly until watery to spread very thin, if you do that with this, it will become very glossy. So if you want that nice matte finish, you have to leave it as is from the can.

                I really liked this product. I was hesitant to buy instead of my normal brand. It dried in less time also.

                Won't use any other poly product
                Oil-based satin poly is the only poly I will use on my projects. Leveling characteristics with brush-on are unmatched by other brands. This product is somewhat more expensive than those brands carried in big-box stores or even in a to-the-trade store I use for other items. But worth it. I have not used with a sprayer but will be back with my review of this delivery system when complete.

                  I used to sell Zar products 25 years ago and they were by far the best. It didn't even seem like an oil based product. I refinished a table top and applied this polyurethane. A week later I bumped the surface and the polyurethane turned white and released from the top of the table. I had to remove the poly which wasn't hard. I was able to blow all of it off with my compressor it just flew right off.

                  Jeff - If the polyurethane turned white, it's a sign of excess moisture that was trapped in the wood. The moisture then prevents the polyurethane from properly adhering/curing to the wood surface. This is why your air compressor could blow it off - the polyurethane dried to itself - an indication the poly was fine. It's always best to use a moisture meter before finishing wood to determine readyness. wtuckerugl
