Cutting gloss on polyurethane


I recently applied satin polyurethane to a door using three coats. It is now a bit glossier than I would like. Any way to cut the gloss back without stripping and recoating?

Cutting gloss on polyurethane


Wet sand with 1000 grit paper or 1500 grit paper found at an auto supply store. Or at same store or painting store buy a deglosser.. made for just this purpose.

Thanks, I'll try the deglosser since I have some of that on hand already.

Cutting gloss on polyurethane


No need to strip
A coat of less glossy poly (satin/low lustre or flat if available) will dull it down a bit

(de-glossers are made to de-gloss for re-coating for adhesion purposes, not to be used and left as is...which by the way is soft...again for re-coating)

+1. The Deglosser will leave you with an uneven milky white gloss.
