Also question is, is polyurethane paint oil based?
Both oil- and water-based polyurethane can be applied to latex/acrylic paint; however, oil-based polyurethane will create a yellow or amber hue, especially to light colors. To add durability without affected color, use a water-based finish.
Similarly, is Minwax polyurethane oil based? Minwax® Fast-Drying Polyurethane is a clear, oil-based, durable protective finish. Provides long-lasting beauty and protection to any interior wood surface. Among the most durable coatings for wood protection. Ideal for woodwork, furniture, doors, cabinets and floors.
Subsequently, question is, is oil based polyurethane more durable than water based?
Oil based polyurethane lasts longer than water based. There is no contest on the durability between the 2 options. Water based polyurethane has lower VOC's - which is a bit of an environmental benefit (more about that in a moment) - but because it has lower VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds), it doesn't last as long.
How long does oil based polyurethane take to dry?
Time for oil-based polyurethane to dry: Hours 24-48, you can walk on the floors with socks. Avoid shoes and bare feet. And, make sure your pets (who usually have bare feet) do not walk on the floors during this time. After 4 days, you can move furniture back on to the floors.
