Coated kitchen cabinet doors. Good coverage that seems to be resisting chipping (after only one week), but any the varnish yellowed when it dried. While it did this in patchy spot on flat areas, it is especially obvious in areas where varnish pooled, like in the joints between trim pieces.

Thank you for your feedback! For the best results with Rust-Oleum Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane, we recommend using a high-quality synthetic bristle brush and applying in the direction of the wood grain in one, thick smooth uniform coat. Over application can cause discoloration so it is essential to check areas for pooling. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
Thank you for your feedback! To ensure the best coverage with Rust-Oleum Varathane Triple Thick Polyurethane it is essential to apply with a high-quality synthetic bristle brush. Apply the polyurethane in the direction of the wood grain in one, thick smooth uniform coat. If refinishing a previously coated surface or a second coat is desired, make sure to sand with 220 grit sandpaper. Each quart has a recommended coverage of 50 square feet. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
After seeing a commercial for this product I really wanted to try it. I'm so glad that I did. This product is quite thick and one coat really does the job. I like that it is a self-leveling, did not have a problem with air bubbles when using a 4" synthetic brush and dries to the touch quickly. When you brush it on, there will be streaks but rest assured, the self-leveling works like magic with this product. I used this on painted plywood and pine boards and am completely impressed with how well this worked. I will probably throw away all of my other poly's for indoor use and stick with this one only! Oh - and the soap & water cleanup is just the cherry on top for this product. The attached picture is an example of what this product was used on.
Product works well. Being thicker it is easier to control the application. I'm not sure it truly replaces 3 full coats of regular poly though. Of course our project was not the best test given it involved kitchen cabinets with a 20 year old finish. The color was richer and deeper just by applying this poly and the cabinets now shine nicely. All in all a very good product.
Note: our store only sells individual cans, not the case of 2.
Ok this product is thick! I suggest using a foam brush as it will leave brush marks. I used a professional grade brush. Goes on milky but dries clear. I do think it is a time saver as i just did one coat. I did a door and a table and used all but a 1/4 inch left in the can.
This is the best stuff out there. I build a lot of farmhouse type of tables and I only use this now. Regular Poly takes up to 24 hours to dry before you can put another coat on and with this you just have to wait an hour. It goes on super thick and is very durable. I have left coffee mugs on the table and it doesn't leave a ring. Here is a picture of a table I made for someone with old barn wood, the person didnt want it sanded smooth but this stuff still went on even and looks amazing.
This product is great, it takes less coats to get the desired thickness and nice glass like shine.
It was a little soft at first but I expect it to harden over time. Dry time was great, I did get one coat a little thick and it developed air bubbles and I had to use a heat gun to get them to pop I'm sure a hand held propane torch could also be used for this.
It did not produce a smell that I could detect.
Overall I'm very happy with the result of this .
The finish was for a MDF topped workbench in the garage. The finish goes on well with a brush and sets up to a tough finish. It is supposed to be self leveling but did leave brush marks in the finish. This is not important on a work bench but would be on a bar top or something that would be for show.
