Gloss Paint for Internal Doors Not Satin Water Based

Postby boaz » Thu Aug 18, 2016 12:35 pm

Greeting to all you professionals.
I have to re-paint all of my internal doors in a bungalow. I used Crown Satin water based paint brilliant white about two years ago, and after rubbing down and priming the water based paint does not last - it scratches very easily - my problem is I am allergic to the smell of normal high gloss spirit based paint which I would prefer to use
Question :- Does anybody know of a "proper" paint that is high gloss/and tough as a spirit based paint would be but with no smell ? as I do not want to paint 13 doors again ( 26 sides ) in another two years time - I am 70 odd years old and could do without this !!!. ANY advice would be very helpful, and thank you for reading this,
Kind Regards,

Dulux diamond eggshell (2 coats) is very good-you can super tough it by applying a water based Matt/satin varnish over the top.
