Me too.It's water based. Enough said. I'm a dyed in the wool solvent base guy. Every time I'm tempted to try water based and asked questions on this forum I've got the same answer "forget it". Go to the forum index and see.
It's pretty easy to apply, both with a brush or a sprayer. Assuming you have good ventilation and it's not too cold, it'll be dry to the touch in 20 min, and can be sanded/ recoated in 1-2 hours. Minimal smell, easy to clean up. You won't get the deep color you'd get from an oil-based finish, so you may want to first apply shellac or boiled linseed oil first. General Finishes also makes a product called Enduro-Var, which gives you that warm amber look. Also pretty easy to apply.I have a question about the General Finish’s water based polyurethane. I have seen Utube videos about how great it is and how easy it is to apply.
Anyone used it and how was the results.
It is part of the Benjamin Moore, Behlin family. Lenmar Megavar CV. It is a professional product, not meant for the hobby shop. Not freely available, I order it from a local dealer, who gets it in around 3 days. First time I ordered it, Lenmar called me and asked a lot of questions.Willem
Who is or makes the "CV" you are referring to?
In the technology age they just came up with something which looks better, performs better, is multiple times more durable and requires a fraction of the effort.Wellem, what the heck is wrong with shellac? Wood workers have been using it for a few thousand years. All the way back to ancient Egypt. It seems to have worked well for them, and it works well for me.
