    Evening all, Astra:), I have some pre finished internal doors that now require painting, been in around 15 years, recommendations on a one coat water based gloss that does what it says on the tin please?.
    TIA chaps.

    Benjamin Moore advanced gloss. Ice fusion 4 inch roller but you must clean surface so water based gloss sticks. I spray with cheap hvlp but you can get amazing finish with roller

    On my own house I use Crown Trade FastFlow gloss but it is not a one coat product as it requires 2 top coats and an undercoat, I am not familiar with the Benjamin Moore products that Wayners has suggested mainly using a Satin finish pretty much everywhere during the last 10 years for interior work. Water base gloss has a lower shine level than an oil base paint FastFlow is a hybrid paint which is a water base product that performs like an oil paint so brush marks are not a problem as much as often can happen with water base paint.

    I believe you will struggle to find a one coat water base gloss paint as two top coats are generally recommended for a decent quality finish.

    Benjamin Moore Advanced gloss is a very good product, however I agree that I think you will struggle to find a one coat gloss, as all water based systems need at least two if not three coats to achieve a good finish.

    Astra knows his stuff, Crown fastflow is one of two generally recommended on this forum. I'm using Leyland acrylic primer/undercoat and Johnsons aqua top coat, satin finish, the other recommendation.
