Has anyone tried the High Performance water based topcoat from General Finishes?

I'm thinking of trying this over Zinsser Seal Coat -- Zinsser says Seal Coat is compatible under all clear finishes.

Just checking to see if anyone tried this and what the results were.

I used General Finishes products back in '80 and 90's and always had success. Being a water borne finish, stick with the recoat times. If outside the recoat time, you will have scuff the surface and clean, before recoating

I thought I read somewhere not to use over shellac. It may require a phone call to their customer service to verify

If you care to go down a water based finishing rabbit hole, there is a lot to explore here:
