APPLICATION
Do not apply in direct sunlight. Use in an area with
adequate ventilation such as an open garage. Use only
when air (ambient) temperature is between 55-90°F (1332°C) and relative humidity is below 85%. Lower
temperatures and/or high humidity may cause slower dry
times and slower dry may also result from applications on
redwood, cedar or woods with high oil content, or when
applied over some stains. Use full strength. Do not thin.
Stir thoroughly before and during use. To prevent bubbles
in the finish,
.
SURFACE PREPARATION
Previously Finished Surfaces – 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 10% household
bleach and water. Old finishes in poor condition should be
removed. Sand using 150-220 grit sandpaper to obtain a
smooth surface. Remove all sanding dust using a vacuum,
tack cloth, or cloth dampened with mineral spirits.
DO NOT SHAKE. Apply using a good quality natural
bristle brush or applicator. Allow the finish to dry 8 hours
before re-coating. Re-coat only when previous coats have
dried clear and feel hard. The coating should no longer
feel tacky to the touch. If any coat has dried more than 12
hours, lightly sand before applying another coat. A
minimum of two coats is recommended. Allow the finish
to dry 24 hours before light use. Wait 3 days before
subjecting the surface to normal usage.
Unfinished Surfaces – Sand using 150-220 grit
sandpaper and remove all sanding dust using a vacuum,
tack cloth, or rag dampened with mineral spirits. If a filler
or putty is used, make sure it does not contain wax allow
enough time for it to dry thoroughly.
Stained or Painted Wood – Follow manufacturer’s
directions for application of the stain or paint. Make certain
the surface is thoroughly dry before applying Varathane
Oil-Based Polyurethane. Using this polyurethane over
white or lightly painted surfaces could cause discoloration.
Refer to the manufacturer’s label for dry times. For best
results, use Varathane Premium Wood Stains.
DRY AND RECOAT TIMES
Dry and recoat times are based on 70°F and 50% relative
humidity. Allow more time at cooler temperatures. Dries to
the touch in 1-2 hours and can be recoated in 4-6 hours.
Surface is ready for light foot traffic in 24 hours and full
use in 72 hours.
CLEAN UP
Clean application tools and equipment with mineral spirits
or paint thinner.
