It forms a solid seal over any piece of wood and therefore protects your projects from damage that can be caused by temperatures, water, and light. Immediately after getting polyurethane on your hands, head to the sink and wash them with warm soapy water. If you have dish soap, such as Dawn, it can help to break the chemical bonds better. Krylon Clear Coatings are perfect for any surface, hands-on or hands-off. Beautiful adhesion on more surfaces than any aerosol paint. Durable anti-chipping clear coat protects paintings finished with wet-on-wet techniques. Use with K01303 Tinting Base or Mixing Primer to create custom paints. I have heard from a number of freeflight guys that the miniwax did not work as well as one might expect. I'll try to find what they now suggest. The big issue was warping of the solid balsa stabs after it has sit in the sun a while. Once dry, both polycrylic and polyurethane don’t pose any hazards. However, in its liquid form, polyurethane is very flammable.

Aerosol cans also have the disadvantage of being bad for the environment. Also, in most cases, obtaining large amounts can be difficult. So, it is best used on smaller wood items. Lightly sand the stain to create some texture, and then apply the Polycrylic using the techniques we discussed. Can You Paint Over Polycrylic? There are also more varieties of roll-on Polycrylic. However, the downfall of a roll-on Polycrylic is that it is hard to apply without noticeable brush strokes. Another thing to remember is that satin polys and varnishes almost always do not have any UV inhibitor added, so they don't resist UV degradation anywhere near those with UV inhibitors. This may not be a big deal with models that are never placed in direct sunlight, but no professional yacht painter worth their salt will ever use a satin varnish on anything that's going to be exposed to direct sunlight. The proper practice for producing a satin clear finish is to use a quality gloss coating with UV protection and then flatten the gloss by hand rubbing when it's dry with rottenstone and/or pumice or a fine Scotch-brite pad to obtain a uniform satin finish. Manufacturer-compounded "satin" clear finishes only mimic a quality hand rubbed finish and are quite inferior to the real thing.Krylon has the same durability, color match, and level of performance found in MInmax Polycrylic Protective Wood Finish.

When you apply polycrylic, you will need to apply thin coats and be mindful of drips. Its consistency is a lot thinner than polyurethane so drips and beading are more of an issue. No, it takes only 30 minutes to dry to the touch and in 60 minutes it can be handled. Once the final coat has been applied, let it dry a further 24 hours before using it. Rinse your hands in a sink with mineral spirits, or apply it first to a clean cloth and then rub your hands. Just be sure to perform this task in a well-ventilated area and away from an open flame as mineral spirits are flammable. Peanut butterThe polycrylic topcoat is designed for unfinished solid wood floors only. It offers great value for money due to its sub-floor protection, water-repelling properties, high gloss and durability. If you have a small surface to cover, polycrylic will work just fine. For a large surface, you will probably want to try polyurethane. When it comes to wooden items that might be exposed to humidity or get wet, then again, the oil-based polyurethane should be chosen over the polycrylic finish. When applying a seal coat, it might be a good idea to use polycrylic instead of oil-based polyurethane. This is because the polyurethane can leave a yellow tint.

Similar to temperature, humidity can greatly affect the curing time of polyurethane. The more humid it is, the more moisture in the air, which prolongs the curing time. Consider how large it is, how often it will be used, and how much time you have to work on it. To get the best results, carve out some uninterrupted time to ensure you get the finish you really want. Additional Tips for Working With Polycrylic Next, keep in mind that this is the roll-on variety, so you need to use a brush or roller to apply it to wood, just like you would with paint or varnish.

We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.


Before you start any project with polyurethane, you should make sure you have mineral spirits on hand. This is a clear liquid that is used to thin paint or substances like polyurethane, but unlike traditional paint thinner, can be used on your hands. The finish hardens clear and will not develop a yellow tint, which is what the polyurethane will do. So, if you are looking for a clear coat, especially over lighter wood, or light color paint, polycrylic is the best option. When you want to apply a protective finish to a project, it’s important to know which one is best. And within the category of polyurethane, there are two types: oil-based and water-based. Oil-based Polyurethane

Today we want to talk all about Polycrylic, what it is, how to use it, how it is applied, and much more. Let’s get right to it and tell you all about this awesome protective and finishing agent for wood. What is Polycrylic? If you can, work with polyurethane when it isn’t too humid out. If you can’t reschedule this task, use a dehumidifier in the room to remove excess moisture from the air. Don’t use a space heater If you are looking for a glossy and luxurious appearance, polyurethane is the best option. You cannot get this glossy look from other types of wood finish. The polyurethane surface is also scratch-proof, which will keep your wood surface looking great for quite a while.

Is Polycrylic The Same As Acrylic?

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you. It does dry very fast because it comes out in a thin layer, but applying a very even layer, especially without getting air pressure marks, can be a bit difficult. You could go with polyurethane, which can be oil-based, whereas Polycrylic is only water-based. There are also bio-paints, Candelilla wax, and various oils that can be used. Polycrylic is similar to high-gloss varnish. In fact, it is often referred to as an “all-in-one” coating that goes on over almost any surface safely and easily.
