When looking at any brand of wipe on poly check for amount of thinner. Never buy a product with more than 60% solvent/thinner.

If look at this product label over 75% solvent/thinner (Light Aliphatic Hydrocarbon)
Essentially naphtha and lesser degree mineral spirits.

While the more solvent/thinner used, might allow for faster drying but more coats are needed!

Whether using poly or varnish today different chemical resins a 50% resin to 50% solvent/thinner prefered. Two coats of that 50/50 mix equals one coat of poly or varnish. Some folks use less solvent/thinner to mix thier own wipe on poly or varnish.

You can do the same with thinned lacquer with about 20% lacquer thinner.
