PU(Thinner Based) Polishing Process

Polyurethane is a type of synthetic varnish used for finishing and sealing wood. In interior applications such as finishing floors and wood furniture, polyurethane is harder and more resistant to abrasion than its naturally-derived counterparts. It is also cheap, easy to use, and available in a range of different finishes from glossy to matte. Learning how to apply polyurethane in a wood finishing project is a straightforward matter requiring only a few tools.
  1. Position your work for applying the polyurethane: You will need to work in a well-ventilated area, because polyurethane produces harsh fumes. It is also important to have either old towels or scrap newspaper on hand to catch spills; polyurethane is designed to bond to surfaces, and is therefore very difficult to clean up.
  2. Sand your wood before applying any finish coats: Whether your wood is unfinished or has an old finish on it, go over the whole piece with fine-grit sandpaper. Sanding removes dust and debris, and also improves the polyurethane's adhesion.
  3. Wipe the piece down with a clean tack cloth: This removes any dust or small wood particles left behind by the sandpaper. Generally, sanding should always be accompanied by a cleaning with a tack cloth or a clean lint free rag lightly soaked with mineral spirits.
  4. Stir the polyurethane in the can: Open the can of polyurethane and stir it gently but thoroughly with a paint stir stick. If you have purchased a semi-gloss, satin or matte finish, make sure to stir the flattening agent up from the bottom, or the finish will be too glossy. Avoid stirring too vigorously, as this could introduce air bubbles into the product that will mar the finish.
  5. Apply the first coat of polyurethane: Use your brush to apply the finish in long, slow, broad strokes along the grain of the wood. Spread the finish thinly to avoid drips. Once the polyurethane has begun to dry, be careful not to brush over it. Applying fresh polyurethane over a partially dry patch will reduce the sheen of the finish, resulting in a more matte look than intended.
  6. Allow the first coat of polyurethane to dry: Polyurethane dries fairly slowly, so it is best to wait a full 24 hours before applying the next coat.
  7. After the first coat is dry, lightly sand with 400 grit sandpaper: Using a tack cloth, remove the dust before you apply the second coat of polyurethane. Apply the second coat of polyurethane just as you did the first. If desired, a third coat be be applied following the same method for extra sheen and durability. Do not sand the last coat. It is advisable to apply no more than four coats of polyurethane.
