Polymer Gloss Medium & Varnish 250ml
Both polymer and polyurethane varnishes are popular choices for protecting and finishing crafts, but they have some differences. Polymer varnishes, also known as acrylic varnishes, are water-based and dry clear. They offer a durable, protective coating that resists yellowing and can be easily cleaned up with soap and water. Polymer varnishes are also known for their fast drying time and ability to retain their clarity over time. Polyurethane varnishes, on the other hand, are oil-based and offer a more traditional, glossy finish.
They are extremely durable and resistant to scratches, abrasions, and water damage, making them ideal for use on high-traffic surfaces. However, they can yellow over time, and they require solvents like mineral spirits or turpentine for cleanup. When choosing between polymer and polyurethane varnishes for your craft project, consider the type of finish you want and the level of durability required. If you want a clear, water-based finish that dries quickly and resists yellowing, choose a polymer varnish. If you want a more traditional, glossy finish with superior durability, choose a polyurethane varnish.
