This is an oil-based gelled clear finish that produces a soft, hand-rubbed sheen. Its thick formula enables multiple hand-applied coats without drips or brush marks.
Where to Use
Gel Polyurethane is recommended for use on interior wood surfaces. This clear finish can also be used over stained surfaces that have thoroughly dried.
Ideal for use on cabinets, furniture, woodwork, trim, and antiques.
All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from dirt, wax, grease, glue, and other contaminants or penetration and adhesion will be affected. Wood surfaces must be sanded smooth and sanding dust removed. Wood that has been stained or finished should dry completely (24 hours) before application of Gel Polyurethane.
Stir thoroughly before and during application. Do not apply in direct sunlight or areas of extreme air movement.
- Use a soft, lint-free cloth or paper towel and apply a liberal amount to an entire side or section of your project.
- Remove excess polyurethane quickly with a clean cloth, then buff lightly and briskly with another clean cloth, working in the direction of the grain until the surface is smooth with a slight wet look.
- Continue to apply and buff until entire project is coated.
Gel Polyurethane will dry to touch in 5 to 6 hours. Allow at least 6 hours between coats. Sanding between coats is not necessary.
- Reapply. Two to three coats are recommended; however, additional coats will enhance build and provide greater protection.
Do not thin. Use as packaged.
Approximately 700 to 750 square feet per gallon. Coverage will vary significantly depending on application method and condition of wood.
Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 60° and 90°F and humidity is between 30% and 70%. At 50% relative humidity and 70°F, Gel Polyurethane will dry to touch in 5 to 6 hours. In case of high humidity, overnight drying may be necessary. Under ideal drying conditions, allow 6 hours before recoating. Drying time will be affected by temperature, humidity, and film thickness. Protect product from freezing prior to and during application.
Using a cleaning solvent, such as paint thinner or mineral spirits, is recommended for cleanup. The use of paint thinners or mineral spirits may violate VOC compliancy in your area. Check with your local government agencies to ensure proper compliancy.
