Application Directions

  • Preparation Warning
    Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
  • PREPARATION
    • Surface must be dry and free of paint, wax, grease, polish, old finishes in poor condition or any foreign matter.
    • Sand to obtain a smooth, uniform surface. Remove all dust.
    • If desired, apply stain, such as Minwax® Wood Finish™ Stain to unfinished interior wood surfaces. Follow directions for application instructions and dry times.
    • Stir Minwax® Fast-Drying Polyurethane before and during use to eliminate settling on the bottom of the can. Stir to rotate the product from the bottom to the top of the can. NEVER SHAKE. Do not thin
  • APPLICATION
    • Apply a THIN coat of Minwax® Fast-Drying Polyurethane using a high-quality, natural bristle or foam brush.
    • Let dry 3-4 hours. Then lightly sand entire surface with fine sandpaper (220-grit) to ensure an even finish and proper adhesion. Remove all dust. For floor projects, use a square buff orbital or disk-type sander with 220-grit sandpaper or the equivalent grit pad or screen (specifically designed for sanding between coats). Do not use a belt or drum-type sander for sanding between coats. Follow the sander manufacturer’s directions for your type of project.
    • Apply a second coat. If a third coat is desired, repeat step 6 before application.
    • After final coat, allow 24 hours before light use.
