Yellowing of B. Moore Impervo?

The Moore site warns that this type of paint yellows. How much? I thought I was all set and going with Latex. That's what the Blog queens recommend. Than I read you folks.

It's for an Ethan Allen table, Drexel base, cheap coffee table, and some chairs.

So my questions are:

How Much Yellowing

What's the cure time?

Can it be sprayed- if yes, what kind of sprayer?

Thanks. Am I done yet?

are you sure they weren't talking about the oil Impervo? Huge difference.
The Waterborne might a little, but very little.

And if are asking what kind of sprayer, I have to assume you A) dont have one, and B) havent used one.
Learning curve there- are you sure?
Id use my HVLP.

Thanks, Brush Jockey

Yes, it may have been the old oil base. I've found some waterbourne at the ACE in my 'hood.

Actually- I've got a painter coming to do some other work. I'm going to hire him to spray now that I've got it all primed.

Hopefully, I'll hang up my brush right after I get this done!

Light colored tint bases (and of course white) of oil based enamels like Impervo will yellow and chalk over time. It is the nature of them. You can get Impervo in an acrylic formulation and will not suffer the yellowing. If this is for furniture, you might consider a factory mixed white polyurethane product.
