Yeah seems I missed that when I reread it again and again trying to figure it out, put it down to Saturday morning but old age might be a better reasoning :)
That as well as masonry paint fence paint etc all now withowrr vohc levels... Emulsion is also rubbish these days... When i was younger it was almost like a paste you could get away one coat.
It states in the description Flat finnish. :D sorry a bit deep for this time on a Saturday morning.
I think you are referring mainly to gloss paints and the chemicals that were once used to help stop discolouration. White gloss/satin paint turns yellow now if it's not exposed to light much. I'd recommend a waterbased paint called Zinnser Perma White for you skirtings, doors, etc, as it will never yellow. It can be a little tricky to use, as it can dry quite quick depending on the conditions, so going back and correcting drips can ruin the finish even more with brush marks. I've found a technique that gives a great finish though. Regular washing of you brush is essential to clean off drying paint, have a second person corrected drips closely after your coat or doing smaller sections at a time then going back yourself to correct drips, and finally have a spray bottle of water ready to give the painted area a quick misting if you need to correct drips or brush marks in the paint. You'll get a super-smooth finish doing this, but it can take quite a few coats to complete the job. Make sure you leave enough time to dry before applying another coat and it can take 14 days to fully cure so if you are doing skirtings prior to having a new carpet fitted then make sure you leave this amount of time before doing so. I think it's touch dry in something like 4 hours but all depends on the environment and conditions it's used in.
Agreed. I always get trade paint and I'm just a diyer. Its get more pigment in, it's thicker amd can be watered down slighty, you get better coverage. 2 coats are always enough. I've had to do 4 coats previously with retail paint, it's a massive con, as is paint for bathrooms and kitchens. Dulux decorator centres sometimes have 25% off, just keep an eye on their website for offers.
