Best White Water Based Gloss ...?

Post by george29 » Tue Aug 28, 2018 5:20 pm

Hi,

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.
[https://www.johnstonestrade.com/product ... ased-gloss]

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 ?

thanks

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:

Thanks,

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