We test a lot of finishes before we offer them for sale to DIYers. Waterborne finishes in particular have been historically difficult to apply. The reason we carry the Pall-X Power is that they seem to have fixed the application problems that are common to water-based polyurethanes:

  • Power is aggressively self-leveling. This means that even when you are new to the process and don’t know how to coat in tight spaces or blend around corners, this finish settles fast.
  • Eliminates the need for sanding between coats. If you get your coats of Power on within 24hours of each other, you don’t need to abrade your previous coat. This saves so much time and mess.
  • This finish performs well even without a separate hardener. Two-component finishes are very strong but mixing two components gets messy and causes waste. This causes anxiety, and an anxious coater is not a good coater! A single component finish that is almost as tough as the more problematic two-component finish is the better buy.
  • No need to decant into a separate container; oours right out of the jug and the filter is built in.
  • Can be applied with t-bar or roller.

Pall-X Power is designed as part of a coating system. The Power is a topcoat, so you must apply a layer of a sealer to your raw wood first. If you prefer a waterborne sealer, stay within the Pallmann brand family and use Pall-X Clear or Pall-X Color. Do not use over other brands of waterborne primers or sealers! If you really need the full-on amber look of an oil-based sealer, Pallmann will bond to other manufacturer’s products oil-based products. We sell and recommend Bona Dri-Fast or DuraSeal QuickDry for just that purpose.

Once you have your chosen sealer applied, you will need TWO coats of Pall-X Power over the top, and we recommend three coats in kitchens and entryways.

Shake VIGOUROUSLY for a full minute before apply. Really, a full minute - we are not making this up.

Allow a minimum of four hours between coats. Only sand between coats if more than 24 hours has passed since the first coat of Pall-X 96 using a 220 grit paper or screen, being sure to remove all sanding dust from that process.

Coverage rate is 500sqft per gallon
Dries clear, very minimal yellowing over time. Use a UV film on windows to further limit ambering of the finish from exposure to light.

Comes in four gloss levels, and from flattest to glossiest they are: Ultra Matte, Satin, Semi-Gloss, and Gloss. We stock the Ultra matte and Satin, but we can get Semi-Gloss or Gloss within an extra day or two.
