Default Is it water or oil based polyeurathane?

wrote in message
My wood floor was sanded and refinished by the previous owner. I need
to redo one section in the middle of the room that has splintered.
Previous owner doesn't remember, and I honestlty cannot tell, if he
used water-based or oil-based polyeurathane. Any definitive way to
test it?


If it is fairly new, just look at the wood. water based goes on water
clear. Oil based give a mellow yellowish tinge to the wood. I fit is very
old, it may be darkened anyway. As the original owner if it stunk up the
house for a day or two? If so it is oil based.
