Yep that is the stuff netsurfer.

Oil based so lasts a lot longer than the water based stuff. I notice a lot of the Dulux gloss is reduced at the moment though in all quantities, just this Satinwood is what we are using tins and tins of and genuinely half price...

Nope thats more likely the water based stuff. This is oil based like gloss.

Avoid "quick dry" which is water based - make sure you pick the right tin up!

Check the back and if it says to wash brushes in water then its crap stuff, if it says to wash brushes with a brush cleaner then its oil based and will be durable and not yellow.

wrong, both oil based satinwood and gloss will yellow. I know all too well. As part of the EU regulations oil based wood paint was reformulated in 2010 so not as tough as it used to be, runnier and takes longer to dry. iv had so many problems with this stuff over the last 3 years.

This is correct, Dulux have had major problems with their oil based paint yellowing sometimes after only weeks.

Will let you know how mine goes - used it everywhere on an 8 bed house with lots of woodwork!

Had some decorating done recently, and the painter suggested eggshell over gloss as it doesn't yellow so much.

Did the skirting board, and whilst it's not as shiny as gloss, it's a pleasing finish and so far no signs of yellowing!

Good price. The smaller tin was going for this the other week but I ended up getting the 2.5L for £17 I think. Goes on quite nicely but takes a couple of coats to completely cover some areas as satinwood is slightly translucent.

we bought similar stuff for our woodwork, the decorator said it was crap & had "no flow", like water basically. He got us some mixed at a dedicated paint suppliers, far better coverage & good value.
IMHO or IMPHO

I've had this stuff on all my skirting board and doors for a year by now. Fingers crossed that they are still white!

Dulux oil based paints, the gloss, matt and eggshell all yellow quite quickly. I did the doors/skirting/other stuff in our entire house with the eggshell and it went a horrible yellowy dull greyish colour. Called Dulux and they said that all oil based products now have less of the ingredients in them that keep them white because of an EU directive, I think lead was one of the ingredients. Anyway, they went on to say that areas of your home with less UV light coming in will become yellower faster. They also gave us a voucher for 5L of their water based diamond eggshell paint that doesn't yellow.

Bottom line is, avoid this unless you like decorating twice.

I can pi55, therefore I can paint.

I worked for dulux for years.
Firstly this is the retail version so it's ok but not as good as the trade stuff.
Secondly, pure brilliant White will always yellow faster than white.
Avoid pbw if it's for yourself, but it's a winner if your selling.
Also satinwood is self undercoating so 2 coats of it without an undercoat will be fine

I used this as face paint and the paint is still on peoples faces 3 months later, good stuff

Pure brilliant white will yellow quicker than satin?

How does trade differ to trade stuff?

Sorry trade to retail!?

Far be it for me to disagree with a man that worked for Dulux! I'm no decorator but been DIYing for past 50 years plus. Just finished my sons new 3 bed home and his wife was 'advised' by %&£ that Satinwood was 'the' paint she needed and no undercoat needed. I've had to do 3 coats on most paintwork and it is still not to my satisfaction. Never again and as for no undercoat needed., bah.

yes

used this exact stuff six months ago and its all gone yellow already

get the water based if you want non-yellowing

johnstones aqua bw gloss is superb but not cheap like this rubbish

wrong way around!

just wait a few months to watch all your decorating turn yellow

Get it price matched at B&Q + extra 10%

Don't buy it or Dulux gloss, segment from email received from Dulux " All solvent-based paints are prone to discolouration, but this is accelerated when they are excluded from direct daylight, subjected to higher temperatures or possible reacting with certain chemicals found when new carpets are installed. "
"In accordance with EU Directive 2004/42/EC, the paint industry has had to reduce the amount of Volatile Organic Compound's (VOC's) being emitted through decorative products. This has resulted in solvent based coatings not being as resistant to discolouration as they were prior to the reduction of VOCs."
Should be printed on the tins as a warning. Did all the upstairs less than 2 months ago, yellowing already it will all need redoing, what a waste of time. They have agreed immediately to refund, good service but i will still have to spend another 2 days repainting.
Anyway just a heads up .

Oil based paints take days for the smell to clear. Water base paints are OK within hours.

So I would only contemplate using oil based paints in the summer when I can leave windows open to disperse the fumes.

With water based paint, the brushes can be quickly cleaned with soap and water, rather than any nasty white spirits.

With hassle like that, here would have to be a significant performance advantage for oil based paint.

Nothing at all to do with quality.. but was told you can't lift finger prints from satin wood paint. so hopefully you will not need their services, unlike us oO so, would never use again.. I wondered why the decorator we hired mentioned the fact I liked satinwood, I soon found out when he cleared us out of 2,000 worth of stuff.. Luckily for us the idiot left his prints elsewhere!

After reading all the comments I'm still none the wiser if this is good, if it yellows quickly, if it is better than water based paint.

* my decorator advised us to get it, and we did, so I do KNOW this is a great price for it, weather our woodwork will still be white in a year has still to be seen >>>

Can anybody recommend a white paint for doors, skirting, etc, that will stay white for at least a couple of years?

I used this and it was fine wherever it gets sunlight, but in the bathroom it yellowed in a few months as there's no windows.

Would never ever buy dulux again. Hall stairs and landing all went yellow after a month. got £100 back in compensation but it all needed painting again. Not fun. wilcos own brand gloss is pretty good.

Found a tin of Crown non-drip gloss in Pure Brilliant White, that I had forgotten about. Is it worth trying this out, or does anybody know if this goes yellow quickly like Dulux? Thank you.

if it's pure brilliant white it will yellow pretty quick no matter who makes it.
I would go for an oil based white eggshell for any skirts and doors rather than satinwood
