Product Information:

When General Finishes first told us about this new water based urethane, to be honest, we were skeptical. However, after testing and using Enduro-Var all skepticism vanished as we realized this was not the typical water based top coat. First, Enduro-Varit uses a colored urethane resin which, like oil imparts a warm glow to wood that darkens or ages over time. Second, it’s an air oxidizing, rather than a simple evaporative, finish which means exposure to air facilitates the cure. This curing process produces an incredibly tough finish that is suitable for any interior application, including floors. Combine these two winning characteristics with the ease of water based application and we think you’ll agree that there is no better finish available. If you’ve been hesitant about using water based finishes, we challenge you to cast your skepticism aside and use Enduro-Var on your next project.

  • Self crosslinking polyurethane

    Decided to completely refinish my oak kitchen cabinets. Contacted supplier for a suggested finish that would work. They suggested General Finishes Enduro-var Top Coat. I must say that was an excellant choice. Cabinets look fantastic. I will definately use this product in the future.

    Comments about General Finishes Enduro-var Top Coat, Satin, Quart :

    This is my first use of water based clear finished in a very long time. I was leery about the clarity of the product. Prior uses of water basted finishes had a slight milky appearance. This product shows no hint of that. I tried it on a small project, using a cheap foam brush. It went down easily and flowed out great. Not the first sign of a brush mark or air bubble blemish. I very lightly sanded between coats. The final coat is smooth as glass. Now on to larger projects with the HVLP gun. If it sprays as well as it brushes, I'll kiss my nitro cellulose lacquer good bye!

    We are using the third gallon on knotty pine kitchen cabinets. It is the perfect finish for these cabinets. We have used the cross-linker from the same company in all batches. We have brushed everything so far, but we plan to spray the cabinet doors.
