impervious to *** and water, and is durable enough for floors.

It's what's called a "wiping varnish" or thinned varnish like Waterlox,
Seal-a-cell, Formby's Tung Oil and so on.  It does have a few more resins
and other solids than some wiping varnishes but not as much as others.
"Impervious" is simply marketing.  Varnishes do stand up to water and
*** fairly well but certainly not impervious. <g>  It'll be comparable
to the other varnishes and most polyurethanes for bottle stopper use.

  There is no "ideal finish", just finishes that are better than others for
use under certain conditions...................
