Overview

This is one of the hardest, most durable consumer polyurethane topcoats on the market today. It is non-yellowing and offers easy water cleanup. It contains all the consumer-friendly characteristics of PolyAcrylic Blend. In addition, it contains a UV Stabilizer to protect it from breaking down in sunlight and to protect the underlying stains from fading. With its pure polyurethane durability, it's a great choice for hardwood floors.

Details:

  • Dry Time: normally 2-4 hours under ideal conditions (70°, 70% humidity). Cooler temperatures and higher humidity will prolong drying time up to 8-10 hours.
  • Clean up with warm, soapy water
  • Coverage: 75 sq. ft./pint; 150 sq. ft./quart; 600 sq. ft./gallon.
  • Thinning: If necessary, thin with 10-20% water.

Direction for use:

  • Oil-based stains must be completely dry before using a water based topcoat. Wait a minimum of 48 hours before applying GF High Performance.
  • Use a foam brush or paint pad applicator. Apply liberally, using smooth, even strokes with the grain. Use enough material to provide a wet film.
  • Sand between coats using 320- or 400-grit sandpaper. Remove dust before recoating.
  • A minimum of 3 coats is recommended. Additional coats may be applied to increase durability and depth.

As a hobby I build small...

Leonard A from Barnegat light, N.J. Posted April 16, 2011
As a hobby I build small tables and on occassion refinish other pieces. This product is, bar none the finest and easiest to use on the market as long you follow the directions.I found that the temp at 60 and out of direct sun also laying it on heavy with a foam brush it will lay down great. If you want, after about5 days rub it out. Again follow what tell you. It gets very hard and is worth every extra dollar you pay. Also the people at the company are very helpfull.

One of the best clear finishes...

Woodrow H from Clifton, VA Posted December 27, 2010
One of the best clear finishes I've come across. Doesn't fish-eye where another high end poly does and sprays on nicely with less tendency to sag even at 10% thinning. It dries fast so I can easily spray 5 coats in a day, and it rubs out beautifully.

This is THE BEST Urethane on...

Brian J from Harvard, MA Posted October 1, 2010
This is THE BEST Urethane on the market for furniture, and cabinets. What I really like about it is that it is easy to brush on, leaves NO brush marks and you can sand it and get a nice white powder after a n hour or so of drying time. I just completed a large kitchen project in red birch, and I can rub out a piano finish in no time at all. This is a wonderful product, and the boys that make this in Wisconsin are also great on the phone to talk to. Can't say enough good things about this product that was rated as the best brushable urethane by FWW.
