I painted some skirting boards and picture rails with Crown brilliant white gloss paint a few years ago, within a year or two they had significant yellowing, despite the claims on the tin which stated it was non-yellowing. What is the best paint brand to resist this yellowing?

Hmmm, Crown is up there with Dulux as a top brand. Maybe yellowing only happens with gloss because a couple of years ago I panted my skirting boards, door frames and stair case hand rail with a satinwood finish paint, and there is absolutely no yellowing.

I'm not sure that any really do stay gleaming white for any real length of time. Just do what my granny used to do and give them a wipe down with very watered down bleach once a year or so. That does the trick

B&Q Colours Everywhere paint stays white, no yellowing at all. Highly recommended.

I just wonder how long you expect it to remain pristine white! You say a few years ago. If it's regularly cleaned properly, it will last a few years, but not forever, despite what the tin says. How many people can honestly say they clean their skirting boards regularly? The odd wipe down maybe, but not a 'proper' clean.

I always use Dulux paint. But I also redecorate every 'few years'.

I did read it was something to do with removing additives Dulux as well ( EU strikes again? )
supposed to be sorted now with recent paints.

Satin woods better. It doesn't go yellow. Tried a few different glosses. Dulux professional gloss is good but still.goes abit on yellow side

I normally add two quarts of Lidi bleach.

I have used satinwood for years, but have now changed to gloss, it is harder wearing. I haven't found it has yellowed at all. Not sure of the brand though, as the decorator did it.!!!

At least 3 years, the last lot yellowed within a year.

Brits take there paint very seriously , I actually brought a small tin of white gloss back with me to the US about 15 years ago to paint a small area around a window, it,s never yellowed but did start to peel year later, I think I put it on too thick though, didn't want to waste any. The paint in the US is not as good...so a professional painter once told me, egg shell paint is used the most here for interior walls, egg shell is just the texture, don't see much high gloss used at all in the US.
I hear bus paint is used a lot in the uk, makes sense , what could be more hard wearing than that. I just had my house and deck painted last year, I chose stain over paint, paint eventually peels ,stain will fade, I chose fading.

saw thing on telly about this. and yes it was due to additives being removed. (have to say some of the whitest gloss I've used was an ancient tin-fullof lead)
one bit of advice was to use the low odour ones-they have less oils in them and its th oil that causes the yellowing.
