Can you Poly over enamel paint?

Polyurethane can be used over enamel paint, which often provides a harder finish than latex-based paints. For best results enamel paint should be allowed to dry for three to seven days before applying the finish.

Moreover, can you put clear coat over enamel paint?

Most Krylon paints are lacquer (technically acrylic lacquer). Enamel over Krylon primer is fine, but don’t use Krylon clear over enamel. If you can find Rustoleum clear coat, use that. It is enamel so you can use it over enamels or lacquers.

Secondly, what kind of paint will stick to polyurethane? Paint will not adhere to polyurethane treated surfaces unless they are primed. Water-based latex and acrylic latex primers are not appropriate for conditioning polyurethane. Applicators should use a quality oil-based primer that is compatible with water-based paints.

Then, does enamel paint need a topcoat?

The best part is no top coat is needed and unlike water-based latex, the oil-based finish can go 5-10 years without needing to be repainted. You’ll want to sand the piece until you can no longer feel the ridges and the piece is smooth (do not sand the primer off).
