Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beware water I've used Minwax polyurethane for years to refinish woodwork in the house and am pleased with the finish and ease of application. However, God forbid a drop of water gets on it because you will be left with a permanent spot or ring.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality Control Issues I used to love Minwax products, but as others have posted on various websites, they are having issues with quality control lately. While refinishing my wood floors, I bought five gallons of Fast Drying Polyurethane in satin finish. Two of the gallons, while marked satin, clearly have dried in a gloss finish which is very upsetting after the amount of work I have put into this refinishing job. Two bedrooms came out beautifully With the desired satin finish while my staircase and hallway and another bedroom look quite glossy and don’t match. As I said, I used to be a Minwax fan in years past, but I won’t be using them again. I have completed many refinishing jobs through the years and have never had this issue before. When I mentioned this at my local big box store, they mentioned others had reported the same issue. Please beware.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not happy I’ve used this product for 25 years as a contractor. Seems something has changed with the durability of it. After two coats, curing well over 24 hours light traffic on it and I have scuff marks. ( good thing it’s my personal floor)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Finish Attributes I should have known, this product is not good. I started using a penetrating stain on red oak, let it dry for a few days then came back to put this on, what a mistake! The first layer, not sure what was going on but pulled the stain out of the wood and wouldn't dry. I lightly sanded 220 to knock any high spots off, then decided to charge forward and finish a second coat. I could tell, right away, it wasn't going to end up good. Alligatoring of the original coat, almost dilsolving it and making it run after 24 hours of dry time. This is the last time I use a Minwax product, they're terrible. Ruined my project, not I'm not sure what to do to rectify the finish. The wipe-on poly is the only finish worth a cent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bought a can of clear satin......... ended up with a can of semi gloss and now requiring me to strip one side of this interior door because it doesn't match the rest of my woodwork. Extremely frustrated with this one door with this product. After this door I will be switching products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beatiful Color & Finish Used the clear satin oil-based, 3 coats, to finish this new solid core front door. The color is Minwax English Chestnut, then finished with 3 coats of poly. No sanding between coats 1 and 2, then a light scuff sand with 400 grit between coats 2 and 3. Absolutely gorgeous!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Advantages and Disadvantages I've done quite a bit of varnishing in my life and this Minwax Fast Drying Polyurethane varnish has some advantages, but also some disadvantages. The advantage is that it dries very quickly and consequently there isn't a lot of time for dust to settle on the finished piece. It is wonderful for horizontal surfaces. Traditional varnishes have to be stirred very carefully to prevent air bubbles from becoming mixed into the varnish. Because this varnish is "thin", bubbles will not become entrapped in the can of varnish. Only by letting traditional varnish sit undisturbed in the can does the entrained air rise to the top and dissipate with time. The low viscosity of this varnish with respect to traditional varnishes, is however, also a disadvantage. This low viscosity makes it difficult to varnish vertical surfaces as it will easily run. I am using it to varnish the handrail of a set of stairs that is sitting on saw horses. In varnishing the top or bottom of the handrail, it is very easy for the varnish to run over the edges and cause drips. If I were varnishing a piece of furniture with carvings or an intricate profile, I fear that that profile or carvings could easily become "filled" with varnish as it flows into the lowest part. I would therefore avoid using this product on such a piece. Lest the reader think that perhaps I have too much varnish on my brush, even by dipping the brush in the varnish by only 1/16 of an inch, enough varnish is on the brush that it can easily cause drips.
