Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dries very fast Out here in the arid, low humidity West, this product dries way too fast, making it difficult to make a smooth, brush stroke free surface before it gets too tacky. Unfortunately, I will have to go back to traditional Minwax oil based polyurethane.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't use this again. I used it on my dyed guitar body. After 24 hours of dry time. The spray has no direction. It just sprays everywhere. One of those nozzles that let you adjust the spray would be nice. To make matters worse it orange peeled badly. I slowly moved the can back and forth but if I went to slow it ran, too fast it orange peeled. The stuff is terrible. Now I have a guitar with 3 coats of clear orange peel. It's so bad if I try to sand it it went to the wood and that was with 2000 grit. Never again. I'll stick with General Finishes instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bubbles Table top painted with 3 coats of chalk paint. Dried for days. 1st coat of polycrylic I used a foam brush, super light finish. Waited 14 hours. Sanded. 2nd coat used a small roller and it looked like there were some polycrylic bubbles so I let it dry, knowing I was going to sand. Waited 2 hours (can says you can ré-coat every two hours). Sanded. Lots of little white dots came up from sanding. Weird. 3rd coat, thicker amount of polycrylic. MAJOR PAINT bubbles. What on earth? Was able to press a few out but then they popped right back up again. Waiting to see what happens in 2 hours but not impressed right now. Super worried this is going to ruin the whole project.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I painted my sons nightstand in white to match the other furniture. I used Minwax polycrylic in Matte finish as a protectant and ruined the nightstand as it turned yellowish. I am very unhappy as the amount of time I spent to sand, paint and the polycrylic ruined it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gets sticky and deteriorates through use Gets sticky and deteriorates through use even after it has dried. Not good for work desks or chairs for reasons I assume is that the polycrylic does not tolerate regular contact with body temperature or the oil from your skin. Over about 4 months after sealing my desktop with minwax polycrylic, the edge of the desk where I rest my arms began to peel off and get sticky. Everywhere else was fine. Only use this for bookshelves or things you don't intend to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible results I used the water based set of products...stain, sealer and satin polycrylic finish. I followed all instructions precisely. The top coats will not level. On a tabletop with sections of about five square feet, the finish dried before I could brush from edge to edge leaving brush strokes and flashing. Trying to tip-up just made it worse. After deep sanding, sealing, staining, and three top coats, the tabletop looks worse than when I started. It is not possible to apply this finish per instructions and get an acceptable result. Do not use this product on unpainted fine wood finishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear! I built a kitchen table out of birch and when the kids saw it, I ended up making three more out of eastern red cedar (juniper). I really like the clear finish that didn't amber the natural color. (However, eastern red cedar changes from purple to brown when finished.) One thing I learned was that I needed to apply thick coats that looked milky to reduce brush streaks. Contrary to your recommendation, instead of using a synthetic bristle brush I ended up using a high dollar natural bristle brush. The cedar is bad about having lots of tiny holes and imperfections from its many limbs. I would have liked for the polycrylic to flow more than what it did to help fill the imperfections. It was indoors during winter time and the woodstove no doubt lowered the humidity greatly, which may have accentuated the problem. However, the lack of odor made the projects possible. Couldn't have done it outside in the shop with rain, snow and fog. I'll use polycrylic on my next projects.
