    Where is the white gloss that doesn't yellow?

    No, youre right opps, I didnt mean it stopped yellowing, I just meant it appeared 'more white' at first application. As you say all shades of paint will yellow after time (unless sun-bleached)

    exterior painting

    NP Yes, Weathershield is water-based, its pretty durable stuff...Personally I dont apply it after the end of Sept /mid October - weather permitting. Theres a good colour range to be found in Dulux. If you can afford it resin-based(Pliolite) is longer-lasting & 'dries' better in iffy weather
