How long should you wait before using the floor after applying water base polyurethane?
This will depend on the humidity and temperature of the room, but generally 24 hours.

How can you tell the difference between water based and oil base polyurethane once it is on the floor?
Generally a colour difference is the thing to be looking for. An oil based poly will generally have a browning effect on the timber that increases with age. A waterbase poly w…ill generally give very little if any tonal change. Bear in mind that newer waterbased polys are 100% polyurethane products that will exhibit very litlle tonal change in their lifetime, but earlier products (and some "new") are co-polymers that sometimes seemed to bleach or even whiten timbers. Old solvent based poly (a product still available in some countries) will have a definite yellow coloured characteristic.
If you're dealing with a new slab, you must wait a minimum of 28 days, preferably two months, for the floor to cure and dry thoroughly before applying a garage floor coating.
After applying polyurethane to floors, especially oil based, ittakes a minimum of 24 hours before you can think about walking onit. As long as it is putting off an odor, it is… still curing.
No you cant ,you should never ever put water base over anything except oil base primer and any other water base paints.If you put water base paint over anything that is oil ba…sed it will never ever stick it will peal.People will tell you you can do it but they are wrong its bad voodoo
No, polyurethane is meant to be applied to a porous surface. Pergo is laminated and has none. Using the product will cause permanent damage.
No! Polyurethane needs a porous surface and because pergo is not, you would only ruin the floor.
24 to 48 hours depending on your temperature and humidity.
at least 24 hour then float it for 15 min. put a cup of aquarium water in it the net the fish in . DON'T PUT HE STORE WATER IN YOU AQUARIUM!!!!!!!!!!! Edit: It depends on wha…t size aquarium it is if it is less then five gallons then you should take the fish out when cleaning if it is anything bigger then that then you should only be taking 25% percent of the water out at once which means you wouldn't have to wait to put your fish in because you don't take them out. If your asking how long you should wait to get fish after starting up an aquarium its at least a day but its better to wait a couple days. And if your putting the fish into your aquarium then you want to float the fish in a bag of water for 10-15 minutes before putting them in.
Befor applying polyurethane, you need to sand the wood smooth, clean it and if wanted putty the holes.
Yes, that's common and should cause no problems.
If your young at least wait a year or until you get comfortable. Trust me, they don't hurt
Without any methods used to beat the test, you should wait at least a month, WITHOUT SMOKING!
Yes u could put a acrylic poly over tung oils, make sure your tung oil is dry my take2 months.oil urethanes yellow in time acrylics will but last twice as long before they yel…low.if tung oils or stains oli base have just been done them no u would not want to put on acrylic. Needs at least 8 weeks to dry.
You don't. Polyurethane is a carbamate-based polymer. Water has essentially nothing to do with it. You make it by reacting compounds with isocyanate groups with compounds wi…th alcohol groups. Including water can mess up the reaction, since water reacts with isocyanates. Sometimes this is desirable in small quantities to produce a polyurethane foam... the carbon dioxide serves as an in situ blowing agent. Freon-like materials are also sometimes used for this purpose, since it has the advantage of not using up some of the isocyanate starting material.
With good air circulation and low humidity, about 24 hours.
