Product Features

Coverage

Approximately 125 sq. feet per quart depending on application and wood porosity

Area Preparation

Surface must be clean and dry. Remove all loose and peeling paint, dust, dirt, grease, oils, wax, and any other surface contaminants. Bare Wood: Sand with 220-grit sandpaper along the wood grain until smooth. Remove all dust. Stain if desired. When applying over stained wood, ensure stain is thoroughly dry. Previously Coated Wood: If the clean surface is in good condition, sand with 220-grit sandpaper. Remove all dust. If the finish is damaged or deteriorated, complete removal of the finish is recommended. Do not use polyurethane over light-colored surfaces, wax, shellac, fresh lacquer, lacquer sanding sealer, silicones, or stearates.

Application Details

Provide adequate ventilation. Stir well before and during use. Do not shake. DO NOT THIN. Apply with a high-quality, natural bristle brush, pad, or spray equipment. Apply thin, even coats with the grain of the wood. For adequate protection on interior surfaces, a minimum of two coats are required. A minimum of three coats are recommended for exterior applications or applications to interior floors. Between coats, sand with 220-grit or finer sandpaper along the wood grain until smooth. Remove dust. Additional and/or maintenance coats will extend the life of the finish. Recoat at the earliest sign of peeling, cracking, or excessive wear. Ideal air, product, and surface temperatures are between 50°F (10°C) and 90°F (32°C).

Drying Time

Requires 4 hours of dry time before adding another coat, and 24 hours before use
