WaterCote Polyurethane Resin is an extremely high-quality, clear finish that is scratch resistant and very hard. With its high solids content and clear appearance, it can be used on wood, metal, plastic, or glass surfaces. It also builds very quickly, so it won't bluecast over dark wood like other finishes.


WaterCote can be applied by pouring or by brush, and is self levelling. Re-coating is suitable at the 4 hour mark, depending on ambient temperature. Can be handled after 10 days, allowing 30 days for full cure.

What Makes WaterCote Different From The Rest

When looking at water based polyurethanes the amount of polyurethane loading and the smaller the particle size of the polyurethane resin will normally produce higher clarity and more translucent product, you will find WaterCote to be one of the most clearest and translucent products on the market. We achieve this by using 100% polyurethane resin with no acrylic, as acrylic is a great resin it’s a lot cheaper option compared to polyurethane resin, acrylic polyurethane blends will normally have a white milky semi to opaque look to the liquid. As WaterCote is very high in solids (purity) once dried you will have a harder wearing coat that will last many years.
