I have had Old Masters water based poly recommended to me for its UV
protection. Of course no clear finish can *stop* UV damage but this is
supposed to be better than others. Has anyone tried it long enough ago to
have a sense of how it protects against UV damage?
I have not used their product.
According to their web site, the water based poly is for interior use.
They do not mention UV absorbers in this product.
They do offer "Old Masters Spar Varnish" for suitable for exterior
use. This appears to be oil based.
My usage would be interior - I have mahogany window frames. The sills on the
south facing side of the house really get bleached out. I looked at their
website too but saw no reference either. The person who told me about the UV
protection is a professional house (interior) painter friend but maybe they
don't know what they are talking about.............
