Polycrylic vs. Polyurethane: Which Is The Best For Your Project?

You’ll often hear a debate about which chemical finishing product is superior: polycrylic vs. polyurethane. Each finish has its own pros and cons, which are discussed in the upcoming sections below to help you make an informed decision when you have a task to choose between them.

There are some major differences in polycrylic and polyurethane. Having knowledge about these differences gives you an insight into each of their practical applications.polycrylic vs polyurethane

Polyurethane overview

Polyurethane is essentially considered as plastic in the form of liquid until it dries. It is found in both oil and water based options. And its varieties range from satin to glossy finish.

Water based polyurethane

Water based polyurethane is known for its characteristic low odor and low toxicity.

 

It is crystal clear and doesn’t add color when dried up whereas oil-based variant gives up a slight color that has amber tone.

It dries up faster as well. Water based polyurethane is not highly resistant to heat and chemicals and does not hold up well in extreme conditions.

 

It’s used well for

It is good for things such as desks, bookcases, picture frames, side tables or anything that is not exposed to extreme temperatures or harsh chemicals.

Oil-based polyurethane

Oil-based polyurethane is more durable than water-based counterpart specifically in terms of dealing with heat. It effectively exposes the natural richness of wood but can add a slight amber or yellowish color tint.

Wood floor and Kitchen table are amongst the few of good applications for oil based polyurethane. It takes quite longer to dry and cure than water based and has a strong smell. That is why it is recommended to use a respirator and work in well-ventilated areas while you are applying oil based polyurethane. Both water and oil based polyurethane can be applied to acrylic or latex paints.

You have the option to buy polyurethane in a spray can which makes it a bit easier to apply, typically on large projects. Wipe-on polyurethane version is used mainly by woodworkers who want to get a “hand-rubbed” finish on special projects. These two run the extremes of ease of use but produce excellent results.

Pros of Polyurethane

Polyurethane is essentially a plastic in liquid form. It does add a protective coating that is durable and sturdy once it dries up.

In addition, the shiny look that polyurethane layer gives to wood has no match. The coating is hard and virtually scratch proof.

Cons of Polyurethane

Polyurethane is flammable when it is in liquid form. It is considered as toxic and should be avoided to breathe in. Hence, it must be used in the well-ventilated area.

Plus you have to wait comparatively longer between coats of polyurethane finish. This is because of its plastic nature that needs time to harden up and accept another coat.

Polyurethane Application Tips

Here is some main point ( You can see detailing how way to spray polyurethane)

  • Sanding the surface with fine grits of sandpaper is the essential first advice in an application of polyurethane. Once the surface is blemish free, remove any dust.
  • Mix the oil based polyurethane with mineral spirit and applies long strokes on the whole surface.
  • Use undiluted varnish for subsequent coats and let it dry for at least 24 hours.
  • For final coat, do it within 48 hours of previous coats. Put extreme care for the final one.

Polycrylic overview

Polycrylic is a strong water-based acrylic with a little polyurethane. It is available in satin, semi-gloss and glossy finish. The protection of polycrylic can offers withstands rough conditions. It can go over oil based finishes and can be applied using the same applicators as polyurethane.

Polycrylic is a relatively new candidate or can be called as new polyurethane. It holds up well, offers enough protection of wood along with faster drying times. It combines the durability of oil-based with the cleanup of water-based. It can be used over water based wood stains or bare wood.

Pros of Polycrylic

Finish that comes up with polycrylic is durable and long lasting. It is perfect for surfaces that have frequent usages such as chairs, desks, tables, and kid’s furniture. This water-based oil-modified polyurethane dries clear and doesn’t give that yellow or amber tint which is characteristic of oil based polyurethane. It is of an ideal use when you’re looking for a bright finish and don’t want the colored hue on your project. When sprayed, it lays down a nice even coat those levels well.

 

Cons of Polycrylic

It has a runny consistency which makes it quite challenging to apply. While working on vertical surfaces, you will have to apply very thin coats and watch closely for any drips. As it has faster drying times, it makes hard to work on large surface projects.

Another downside to polycrylic is that you need to wait until it cures before doing anything else to the surface. Although it dries quickly, you definitely have to wait until it cures. While it works well over standard latex paint, it’s not a good choice for matte latex paint which keeps it from drying up. It appears runny leaving behind cracks when dried.

Polycrylic is actually not transparent; it may give a milky finish if applied thickly on dark colored surfaces.

Polycrylic Application Tips

  • Make sure the surface is free of dust and other debris.
  • Sand with a fine grit sandpaper and remove dust afterward.
  • Once the surface is clean, apply a thin layer of polycrylic with a bristled brush or foam or spray.
  • Let it dry and wait until it cures.
  • Sand and then apply two more coats.

Conclusion

There is no direct answer to the debate of polycrylic vs. polyurethane. The answer is directly related to the needs of the piece or surface and the conditions that it has to face and of course your own requirements.

For example, if the piece will be exposed to water, then use polyurethane. Or if it needs to be dried up quickly, then give polycrylic a thought. Usually, more used pieces are better finished off with polyurethane such as kitchen table while painted stand in the room would go well with polycrylic.

Dewalt DCF887 20v 0.25” impact driver with 3-speed control

Overview

dewalt dcf887Dewalt has come out with a new 20v Max Impact driver, model DCF887. This was launch after older model DCF886, and it appears to be closely base off of the DCF886 design. The DeWalt DCF886 impact driver, which is our best cordless impact driver my pick and features the singer variable speed control. But The Dewalt DCF887 has some different with the older model feature. The new brushless motor impact driver, DCF887 is shorter than DCF886, and it features 3-speed control separate, and it is higher than previous DCF886 nearly 22% powerful at its highest speed and torque setting.

features and specs of DCF887

  • Brushless motor
  • Max torque: 1825 lbs
  • Dimensions: 5.3” Front to back
  • 3-speed setting with precision speed 1.
  • 3 LED with 20 sec delay after trigger release.

The DCF887 launched with 3 options: DCF887B is the bare tool, and a DCF887D2 kit comes with (2 ) batteries 2.0Ah packs, and a DCF887M2 kit comes with (2) batteries 4.0Ah packs.
The kits also include a fast charger, belt clip, and kit box.


Look at the spec; I found in Dewalt’s website about information of DCF887. It is shorter in length (5.5”-5.3” = 0.25”) than the DeWalt DCF886, although on the Amazon’s page description says that it is shorter 2mm than previous the DCF886, which would be 0.0787”. This is a reason why it can fit into tight areas.
The DeWalt DCF887 does have 3-speed; module 1 0-1000 rpm, module 2 2800rpm, and module 3 3200rpm. At module 1, speed is low speed and low torque, that can work precision driving with a small fastener and is good for a small machine, wood screws for things like a cabinet, furniture, etc. At module 2 and 3 are faster and higher torque. You can work with bigger screws and even can loosing the lug nut at the highest setting 1825 lbs torque.
At module 3 is highest torque, it is really higher more about 22% powerful than previous model DCF886 (1825 lbs – 1500lbs = 325 / 1500*100 = 21,67%). It is also higher nearly 10% than Bosh IDH182 hybrid impact driver that I wrote before. The DCF887 impact driver can work with deck screws and lug nuts for automotive.
One other hand, The DCF887 features ¼” hex chuck with one- handed loading, and accept to 1” bit tips. It is easy to change tool with grip sleeve. The tool also includes a belt clip.
For me, I like dcf886 with singer variable speed, but I may be hard to find a reason to dismiss the advantage of DCF887. With DCF886, it can be limiting speed when you need to work with less torque, but the DCF887 you can choose which speed level what you want to do. At this time, it is one more option for you that you can choose for your project.
Let us know, what your experience about model DCF887 you want to share?

  • Its site Pro-Modular Guarding system makes it flexible to adjustments that will suit different types of jobs.
  • It has a port for dust collection, thus making it easy to clean.

Thing we don’t like:

  • The warranty is limited. It might not be very well for buyers outside of North America.
  • No dado cutting support.

Verdict:

This product is manufactured by one of the most trusted brands in the market. DEWALT has been in the construction equipment industry for over 80 years. With this kind of exposure and experience, the brand has learned from previous brands and can be trusted to deliver.

This particular tool is very powerful; with the motor strength of 15 amps and the rotation speed of 3850 per minute, it’s able to carry out detailed jobs such as cutting hardwoods, with excellent accuracy. The fact that it can be carried to site is also a selling point.

The Modular Setup that makes it possible to modify the settings to suit different kinds of jobs makes is like buying different types of tools in one. It‘s durable too.

DEWALT DW745 is a good investment whose efficiency far exceeds the cost.

Proofs:

I have owned the Dewalt DW 745 for 3 years now. During this period, I have only experienced two problems, one that was quickly solved. When I first bought the saw, the power switch went out after 5 cuts. I had to transport it several miles to have it replaced, which took a whole week. The second issue that I have with this table saw is that when you use the TS aligner, alignment to the left is not 100% accurate. The one to the right is just about perfect, though. This is a small matter that can be corrected through proper alignment, but it’s still a waste of time having to do it myself. If not aligned properly, it compromises the accuracy of the final product. If you have an affinity for proper woodwork, you can’t have that happening.

That aside, Dewalt DW 745 has been one of the best investment decisions that I made. It comes with a price that fits my budget. It is portable as well and hence easier to haul around. I can carry it to sight and assemble it easily. It barely takes me 10 minutes to set it up. I do not need to have a lot of storage space for it either because it’s foldable and compact. The rack and pinion fence design is the genius. It gives the saw greater levels of accuracy. I don’t think I could use a saw without this design after this. I wish it came with a stand, though.

They give you a 3-year warranty, which is a show of faith in the brand. In the 3 years that I have had mine, I have not had to invoke the warranty.

Overall, it’ a great saw for a good price, depending on the type of work you need it for.

Final Conclusion

DEWALT as a company is responsive. Should a problem be experienced by the user, the company readily replaces the parts that it needs to.

The features of this product that are what anyone looking for an efficient yet budget-friendly table saw would require. The added benefit if three years warranty gives one the confidence that it is a good brand. The portability and power are what make Dewalt DW 745 to me a product that stands out amongst the rest in its level.

An upgrade of the Dewalt DW745 is out and the new model is Dewalt DWE7480XA. It has a 10-inch blade like its predecessor. However, this new model has a 24-inch rip capacity as opposed to 20 inches, 15 amps and an rpm of 4800 as opposed to the older model’s 3850. It also has a rack to hold it up for easy set-up anywhere.

DEWALT DWE7480XA 10-Inch Compact Job Site Table Saw Review

Overview

6 months ago I was searching for ages trying to find the perfect table saw for my woodworking projects. Woodworking is my passion, and I love crafting at home, using the garage as my workshop when I have the spare time. After trawling through the internet and hours of Googling, I pretty much compared every single product out there. Belief me when I say there are plenty of options to choose from…

In the end and after 4 weeks of research, I chose the DEWALT DWE7480XA. I have to say, and it has not let me down. Reliable, consistent and a great price, I have recommended this table saw to everyone I know interested in woodworking.

First impressions

So it probably took about 10 minutes, maybe slightly more, from unboxing to setting up the table saw. Most of the time I was following the instructions, which are relatively simple when you’ve had to deal with Ikea manuals before!

It was surprisingly straightforward to set up. It’s perfect if you’ve been spending hours researching table saw’s like I had and just wanted to start using it straight away. What I liked was that the saw was still aligned from the package, so it didn’t require any further adjustments.

Portability

dw7480x job-site saw

Now, let me tell you about how portable this table saw is. I mentioned earlier that my garage is my woodworking workshop, and so I need a table saw that doesn’t take up too much space.

Working from home is great, but you’re always going to be limited on space. The DEWALT DWE7480XA is perfect for this. At a table size of only 26.5 ” x 25.8 “, it’s small, but you still get a lot of power. In fact, it’s got a spinning speed of 4,800 RPM and a 24 tooth 10-inch blade. That makes it effortless when I’m cutting through thick and tough wood. It may be small but don’t underestimate its power.

It also uses a scissor stand, so you can fold it up quickly without using up too much room and the scissor stand is carried separately from the saw, making it easy to move about when you’re spring cleaning the house. This also means I have room for other tools in the garage, without the table saw getting in the way too much. I can safely fold it up and pack it away if I know I’m going to be taking a break for a while.

Fence system

fence of dw7480x table saw

The Dewalt rack and pinion fence system also make my life a whole lot easier, with 24-1/2 inch of rip easily cuts a variety of larger shelving and trim materials. This has a telescopic rail fence system, so you can be quick and accurate when adjusting it. Before I bought this product, I read and watched a few videos stating how long you can spend making adjustments and fine tuning the alignment of your table saw. That made me worry a little. I barely get enough time to woodwork as it is, without having to tune fine my tools each time I use them…

However, with the DWE7480XA you won’t have to realign it every time you pick it up. You won’t spend hours working out how to adjust it. You’ve simply got a stable, solid fence.

Dust

When I’m woodworking from home, I like to keep things tidy. That means dust can be a big issue. Woodworking is a hobby for me, so the last thing I want to be doing is spending half of my spare time cleaning up when I could be crafting my next project.

Luckily, there’s a dust port on the DWE7480XA that hooks up to a 2-1 /2-inch vacuum, so it’s quick and easy to clean up. I was surprised by how little time I spent hoovering up dust. My surfaces are still smooth, 5 months later. This feature has also stopped my wife from complaining that the garage was a mess! I have to say there’s nothing worse than seeing dust all over your tools and garage, so you need a dust port like the DWE7480XA’s if you don’t want sawdust and chips everywhere.

However, I have to say some might get a little annoyed with the dust port. If you don’t have it attached to a hose, it will shoot dust all over your workshop or anyone in the way! It’s easy to make this mistake, especially if you haven’t used a dust collector on a table saw before. Just be mindful of this each time you use it. Otherwise, you’re going to be spending a long time cleaning up.

Guarding system:

safe guard system

The Site-Pro Modular Guarding System allows for tool free adjustments of the guarding components appropriate for each application. The guarding system is supposed to be useful if you’re concerned about safety.

Projects so far

I have to say; I love the DWE7480XA and I’ve had a lot of fun using it. It helped me so many times, and it allows me to be creative on my projects. From crafting a wooden iPad dock to building a birdhouse, in woodworking, you don’t have to be a pro or even that experienced to own one. I spent hours researching table saws, so I’m confident I’ve made the right choice.

For me, this isn’t just a table saw. It’s a way for me to express my creativity. I like the fact that it’s powerful and portable, so I can use it in my small garage while still having enough power and precision to craft accurately.

Conclusion

So now you can see why this table saw is perfect if you’re a woodworking enthusiast. It’s portable. Easy to clean, reasonably priced and incredibly good quality overall. You can buy the DEWALT DWE7480XA here from Amazon.com
