Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as intended I did a full strip and refinish. Once you get the thickness of each coat down it goes on fine. Used the varathane applicator. Ensure to mix extremely well, mine had a ton of solids settled at the bottom of the can. I didn't realize this on my first can and ended up with a lot of waste on the first go. Still turned out great. Did 4 rooms, appx 1000 sq ft and used 4 gallons. 3 coats in 3 rooms, 2 coats in a lesser used room. One thing I would change next time is better scuff sanding and dust removal after the first coat. This is a critical step and I did end up with some dust particles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product It is hard to find a quality water-based clear coat for furniture. This is it!! Lovely barely-there sheen and no brush strokes!! The only issue is I have to drive 200km to pick it up as my local Home Depot fails to keep it in stock.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure? Thought I properly followed instructions for this product, but now after several days of drying the clear Matt finish is easily scratching off like a thin wax coat. Was is something I did improperly? How do I safely remove this finish now without damaging the stain? Disappointed and need help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is one of the worst wood finishing products I've ever used. The spray from the can is not properly atomized, and comes out in uncontrolled large droplets rather than a mist. The large drops land on the project and quickly dry into uneven dots. Subsequent sprays don't improve it and simply add to the poor finish. If you spray enough material to form a film, the film does not self-level and sets into an uneven, botchy finish. Don't waste your money and time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great finish for desk I have used a number of water and oil based stains, and I'm very impressed with this one. I used this on a desk which I use 50 hours per week. It is holding up well and not scratching or breaking down, and is holding up to water rings. The soft touch feel is very nice, especially for a desk which is used daily. Application is easy and brush strokes are not obvious. Water based means easy clean up, and no odour after 24 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Completely transparent and matte, this varnish just brings out the beauty of the wood grain without showing. You can't even tell that it's there, but it does make a difference. It's also easy to clean with just warm water. It dries fast too, and the smell is not overwhelming. I used two coats on newly installed wainscoting but the second one is really not that necessary. The only downside is that it's pricey. Highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality finish This is the product that I choose to finish woodworking projects that want to last forever. When applied with a quality brush, this product dries with absolutely no brush strokes visible whatsoever, which is quite impressive. It also dries incredibly fast, so applying multiple coats does not take a tremendous amount of time. Don't cheap out and apply only one or two coats to your project. Follow the instructions on the can and actually put a minimum of three coats on. It produces a true professional finish. Durability seems to be decent as well. I finished a coffee tabletop with it a year ago, and there are only minor faint scratches that are visible when light hits it a certain way. Overall, i'm satisfied though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great top coat I like that finish I use it to seal and protect all my chalk paint projects... I have repainted a bedroom set, a desk and a bathroom vanity all holding up excellent to every day use. I usually do 2 coats and I wait at least a day before I apply the second coat. Works well for me,,, I use sponges to apply.

I thought I followed proper directions for this product but after several days the clear coat is scratching off like a thin wax coating on the stained table top, how do I properly remove the finish coat now without damaging stain finish? 

Asked by: Jennyk123
Hi Jennyk123, We're sorry to hear about this! While the finish can be handled after a few hours, it can take between 7-14 days for full cure hardness, depending on how many coats were applied. Sanding will be the best option to remove the finish. However, you should still be careful not to remove the stain underneath.

I'm going to use this for refinish hardwood floor, but wondering if I can directly apply this right after I use the sander to remove old painting. Thanks

Asked by: maggie
I'm assuming you mean without any additional staining. I used this after sanding as a final top coat and just kept the natural colour of the wood. I suggest getting a floor finish applicator to make the job easier.

Hi a couple questions. Is this suitable for bare pine tongue and groove walls and ceiling? Can this be sprayed? What is the appropriate respirator for spraying this?

Asked by: bert
It is perfect for bare pine. It’s water base so it does not have a harsh smell, I used it on home made poplar (aspen) cupboards, I used a paint brush and sanded smooth after the first coat, poplar tends to have fibres raise when wet, then light sanding if you apply a third coat, what I like the most of this finish is that it will not yellow the wood like the oil based polyurethane,

Can this be sprayed and is it safe to use over a painted surface

Asked by: the_count
Yes and yes. I spray it all the time with a gravity fed HVLP pneumatic spray paint anywhere from 40-60psi. Full strength, don’t thin it.  It’s also great over paint. 2-3 light coats. Sand with a 400-600 grit in between if you’ve got texture but not necessary if it lays down smooth. Does not yellow unless it’s left to pool in an area. Drys fast and wears great!

I repainted my kitchen cabinet doors with white Cabinet & Trim paint.  Is this product good as a last coat?

Asked by: Barb
Hi Barb, Yes, our Premium Wood Finish is a great choice as a top coat. We recommend waiting until your paint has dried hard before applying 3 coats of the clear for protection. Most importantly, test on a small area first as some clear coats may alter the appearance of these colours when applied.

If you are using it indoor, it should work; just follow the instructions for the best finish.

can Varathane diamond finish be applied to masonite

Asked by: roger_d_s
Hi roger_d_s, We recommend an oil based finish over water based finishes for masonite. Our concern is that water based finishes may cause the masonite to swell.

I made a book box for my infant son, while I don’t foresee him eating it, I just want to confirm that this product is safe for me to use to finish my project as he will be touching it lots. Is it food/baby safe? 

Asked by: Shawn10
Hi Shawn10, Once the product fully cures, which can range from 7-21 days, depending on temperature and humidity, the coating will be non-toxic. That being said, the product is not food safe even when fully cured. We hope this new information is helpful.
