When looking for a product to finish a wood bathroom vanity top I came across Waterlox. Then I went to their web page and see they are pushing a new low VOC two part finish that they claim is just as good as the old.

Anyone have experience with the new version? Or should I just stick with the older 1-part formula?

OK - no responses but I did get some good info from the supplier but I always regard end used feedback at a higher level.

For my application I purchased the original Sealer/Finish. I had heck of a time getting a coat down without bubbles drying in the finish. I tried my best paint brush, a new (expensive) 100% bristle brush, paint pad, foam brush, rags ... Then I found a white bristle/synthetic blend varnish brush at Lowe's and it was like magic - flawless finish.

New question - during my frustration I was thinking of topcoating the Waterlox with Target EM9300. For future reference I'm still wondering if this would work. I tried contacting Target by email and voicemail and have never received feedback. Just wondering if others have found a way to contact them. On my past couple of projects I have had a couple questions and have not received feedback. Wondering if it's time to jump ship?
