Minwax/"Polycrylic"/ Varnish

Minwax Polycrylic is an example of a fortified water-based polyurethane than can stand up a bit better to rough conditions. It also can go over oil-based finishes and can be applied using synthetic-bristle brushes, a foam roller or a rag, as can other water-based polyurethanes. Water-based oil-modified polyurethane is a relatively new product that combines the durability of an oil base with the cleanup of a water base. This product can actually be used on wooden floors.

( I use the product as a protective varnish on my 'silicone paste' paint formulations ( see prior posts) after 24 hrs of paint exposure to the air. It applies smoothly with various paint brushes to the paint surface. Before applying the varnish, I 'finger test' the paint surface to make certain it is non-tacky.
