Drag on the polyurethane with a heavy weight T bar Padco™ type applicators, Paint on with a brush requires skill as does lambs wool applicators for polyurethane
The polyurethane coating is generally the color of light amber and will yellow dramatically within the first year, The typical system for a one day finished polyurethane coating is to use a fast drying sealer and trowell the surface with a large steel plate dragging the surface with the sealer. Lacquer sanding sealer U-200 is the wrong sealer because it does not have any penetration and is incompatible with polyurethane. Once dry nothing else will stick to lacquer except lacquer itself so the trick for this is to roll your coat of polyurethane over this lacquer before it has evaporated. We use the Glitsa Bacca floor sanding sealer instead it is compatible and has great penetration and high build to create a great seal.
