How to Apply Varathane Water-Based Polyurethane?
Previously Finished Surfaces â€“ To ensure proper adhesion, surfaces must be clean, dry and free of wax, grease, oil, shellac, lacquer, mildew and polishes. Remove wax with a wax stripper, shellac with a paint stripper, and mildew with a solution of up to 10% household bleach and water. Old finishes in poor condition must be removed by sanding using 120 150 grit sandpaper. Sand to obtain a smooth surface. Do not use steel wool as rust may develop after the finish is applied. Remove all sanding dust using a vacuum or cloth dampened with mineral spirits.
Unfinished Surface Preparation - Sand smooth using 120â€“150 grit sandpaper and remove all sanding dust with a vacuum or cloth dampened with mineral spirits. If a filler or putty is used, make sure that it does not contain wax and allow enough time for it to dry thoroughly.
Stained Or Painted Wood - Follow manufacturerâ€™s directions for application of stain or paint. Make certain the surface is thoroughly dry before applying Varathane Crystal Clear Polyurethane. For best results, use Varathane Premium Wood Stains.
Brush Application - Stir thoroughly before and during use. To prevent bubbles, DO NOT SHAKE. Apply using a good quality, synthetic bristle brush, foam brush, or applicator. Allow the finish to dry a minimum of 2 hours and then re-coat. Lower temperatures and/or higher humidity may cause slower dry times. Re-coat only when previous coats have dried clear and feel hard (no longer tacky to touch). A powder should develop when lightly sanded. If any coat has dried more than 24 hours, lightly sand before re-coating to avoid brush marks. A minimum of 3 coats are recommended. If grain raise occurs, sand smooth before final coat. Allow finish to dry 24 hours before light use. Wait 3 days before subjecting surface to normal usage. Clean application tools and equipment with soap and water. Dispose of properly.
