As the above Sticky on the Yellowing gloss problem a few years ago, we were then advised to use Johnstones Aqua System Trade Water Base Gloss and matching undercoat for several interior white doors.

Seems the were right as there is no obvious yellowing though they are now getting a bit tired and other interior woodwork needs repainting; the only downside is that it gives more of a Satin finish than full gloss.

Any comment about any better non yellowing white gloss or is this Johnstones one about as good as any ?

Dulux Trade QD Gloss.

I'm no fan of Dulux for a variety of different reasons, but QD gloss is the best water-based gloss out there. Not the most forgiving paint, as it's a tad heavy in application, and tends to eat brushes a bit too readily, but the results are easily as good as oil.

Drop of water or Floetrol goes a long way with this paint. :thumbright:

Will give it a try and perhaps try thinning it a bit to help reduce lines when covering the doors.
