    Finally got round to giving this a go and have to say I'm impressed. Needs a drop of extender but then flows off the brush a treat. Decent opacity, no brush marks and leaves a lovely lustrous finish reminiscent of oil based eggshell. Best off the shelf Satin I've used and will definitely use again.

    Yea I find it fantastic, must admit I got use to other satins and did find I was putting it on to thick but once you get use to it the finish is great :thumbsup:

    Is this product water only based or hybrid with alkyd? Thanks

    Waterbased only. However the old aqua satin is a hybrid along with the gloss and. U/C

    Yeah, I had the same experience. Applied it as I would using Andura, and it ran like billy-o. Worth persevering with as the end result is top notch.

    Only stuff to use if you need something off the shelf that day. Loves to run if you don't go careful with it but ita tough as anything once it's cured. Went back to a house I used this in about a year ago and I swear it's gone a bit yellow? Probably just my imagination or just dirt but anyone else noticed this? I know PU can yellow in certain conditions and I believe this is a acrylic pu same as caparol, never seen any yellowing of that though even on radiators where it says not to use it or it may yellow
