Your honour.......................in my defence :oops: :oops:

These new paints are a bit Chicken & Egg IMO. Do you buy new brushes for your new paint, or new paint for your new brushes? :scratch:

I normally use decent water based stuff, though cadged some pre-2010 sadolin OB based woodstain off the old man to redo the stain on the front door (previous residents (plural) dogs had clawed round the letter box and they had just varnished over it)

Even with all the windows open, and fans on...I was tripping...then again when I read the datasheet online it recommends a respirator if using indoors on surfaces such as doors...

killer headache from hell the next day....give me waterbased anytime!

Dynamod, has your original test been cooking in the back of the garage for long enough, do you think?

What's it looking like?

Will this post never die :lol: :wink:

I had a look at it the other day, and from a cursory glance, the Jotalak seemed the best one, but I wasn't really paying a lot of attention TBH, as the board was in the way of other stuff I was needing, so just shifted it out of the way. :oops:

I'll take a couple of pics early next week and put them up against the originals for a direct comparison :thumbright:

Took these the other day. Sky was overcast and the light was as flat as the proverbial, but should give an indication of how white they all are.
The board has been in almost complete darkness since it was painted, so will try to get another shot once there's a bit more sunshine (up here :? ) to show the gloss levels better.

Thought I'd bring this back to the top as we've been talking about water based glosses.



Do you still have those in the garage Dyna?

Almost 4 years since that was done. :shock: :shock:

It's still there. That board lives in near darkness. I'll stick a photo on tonight and see what they're like, but from memory, there was some discolouration. :thumbright:

Lots of regular posters that no longer contribute to the forum, which is sad and also I notice Id never posted on this thread, which is strange!

You weren't outside cleaning oil gloss from your hands with turps?

Haha! I was for the odd job.

I was quite happy with the Jonnos aqua until I tried the bedec.

Still haven't tried some of the others.

Talking to my paint supplier yesterday about the Bedec Aqua Advance. He was saying that a decorator had used it on some exterior cills and they had all bubbled. When they contacted Bedec they told the decorator that it shouldn’t be used on surfaces such as cills that hold water :wtf:

I see hybrids as a total waste of time. They discolour like oil so unless smell is an issue you may as well just use oil. They only seem to be good for making the transistion from oil to fully water based.

Anything can fail externally. I think if it was a common problem we'd have heard a bit more about it.

Personally, if I was asked to gloss an outside, I'd still be tempted to use an exterior oil, as the drying/whiteness wouldn't pose a problem externally.

As for satin/eggshell on an outside, I'm more than happy to use waterbased finishes.
