Product Information:

These oil-based Gel Topcoats and Stains are quite possibly the easiest of all finishes to use and achieve a "hand-rubbed" look without all the work. Application is easy with a foam brush or lint free cloth. The heavy bodied gel formulation permits the product to flow out evenly (no drips or runs) preventing uneven penetration for consistent color control. Gel Topcoat may be used to top coat any stain. Although Gel Stains contain urethane, Gel Topcoat has a higher content of urethane and may be used to top coat Gel Stains for more protection. Gel Topcoat is available in satin. For semi-gloss or gloss sheens, use Arm-R-Seal Topcoat.

  • Pleasant odor
  • Water, alcohol and heat resistant
  • Will never chip, crack or peel.
  • Non-toxic after drying
  • Stains are compatible with other topcoats


  • This item is not available for shipment into the State of California. However, it may be available for sale at your local Woodcraft Store. Please call for availability

    Need help refinishing old cabinets or cabinets that are in perfectly good condition? Tired of that golden oak color
    and would like a more modern, up to date look? General Finishes Gel Stains open up a world of easy-to-attain
    possibilities for revitalizing wood furniture, redecorating your home by changing the color of wood cabinets,
    furniture and floors, and achieving an excellent first-time finish. These oil-based products are super easy to
    use and produce a ‘hand-rubbed’ look with little effort. Just apply with a foam brush or lint-free cloth
    and wipe off – heavy-bodies gel offers even flow and consistent color control. Recoat time is quick, and
    sanding between coats is your choice. Use the gel topcoat for extra durability and protection.

    Many homes built in the 1980’s used stock golden oak cabinets in the kitchen and the bathroom.
    These cabinets were made with excellent quality construction and have proved very durable over
    the years in your home. A couple decades have passed and you would like to bring your kitchen
    or bathroom up to date with a different color combination for your cabinets or furniture.
    General Finishes Gel Stain is the simple answer – and extremely affordable too!
  • Available in 11 colors, including the popular Java (shown here)
  • Multiple coats can be used for even more color combinations

    Comments about General Finishes, Clear Satin Topcoat Gel, Quart :

    I love the gel stain but the topcoat was a HUGE disappointment. I mixed it before every application but my cabinets turned out shiny, nothing like a satin finish. I will be purchasing another brand of oil based topcoat in an attempt to tone down the glaring shine.
