    Hi Folks any advice on this topic, I have a number of internal doors gloss white about 8 years ago now gone yellow. Looking to lightly rub these down, then acrylic undercoat followed by dulux satinwood waterbased to save this future problem.
    Whats the chance that the yellowing from the oil paint will still try to get through to the top, I would imagine the acrylic will stop this but for how long, any advice appreciated

    You need to give them a thorough rub down, light won't cut it when moving from oil to water based. It won't bleed through. You don't need to u/c satin just two or three coats, but u/c does tend to be cheaper. Have been using the dulux today, although not bad the sikkens satura BL is still the best.

    P.S I wish this site could get rid of auto correct, getting fed up with retyping brand names on every post
