These water-based finishes are low in VOC (volatile organic compounds), so they pose less risk to health and make for easier clean-up and disposal. They have a thick, smooth-flowing consistency that levels well and is readily brushed, drying in about 2 hours to a tough, durable coat. The High Performance Polyurethane is a general-purpose varnish suitable for interior woodwork and furniture, with a high resin content for excellent durability and vertical sag resistance.
For exterior applications, the Exterior 450 Polyurethane produces a tough, water-resistant finish that is flexible enough to endure wood movement from changes in temperature and humidity. It contains a mildewcide to inhibit mold and mildew growth. Unlike oil-based finishes, these varnishes deepen the tone without imparting an amber color to light surfaces.
They contain UV absorbers to prevent the cured film from breaking down in sunlight and to protect underlying stains from fading. Both are available in gloss, semi-gloss, and satin sheens and come in quart containers (32 fl oz/946ml). Coverage is approximately 150 sq.ft./quart; minimum of three coats recommended.
Can also be sprayed by diluting by about 10%. Suitable for use over oil stains that have dried for at least 48 hours. An excellent family of varnishes.
