Oils aren't going away
Can't buy oil based interior paints in Maryland, and the big box stores (at least Lowe's) does not carry oil base at all.
- they can't legislate like that.
Who's kidding who?
brakes on the epa for a while.
Did not stop the state from doing what it wants. They may make it, that does not mean Maryland has to sell it.
I don't understand how you can legislate out 'oil' products? They can go after VOC's and such - but heck latexes are abundant in VOC's as well. All I have to say is absolutely ridiculous - and California will notice absolutely no change in their smog levels either - sounds like a bunch of epa types were able to live off the public trough for a while. When are they going to legislate all those nasty High VOC emitting pine trees for contributing to smog - what a joke!
Yep, That is what I have used in the past, I agree I like it better than floetrol but it still doesn't lay down like oil impervo with a little penotrol. Got a job coming up painting all the trim in a house but no doors. Oil was used originally so satin impervo is up to bat.You might try Latex X-tender rather than Floetrol to reduce brushstokes, keeps the brush from dragging and keeps open time longer. 2-4 oz/ gallon recommended. That is 1/2 to 1/4 the amount of Floetrol you need. Unit price is the same so it turns out to be much cheaper. Latex -Xtender leaves no residue in the paint nor does it yellow. Remember, the additive is a fugitive chemical and completely disappears in 24 hours so you will need to add more if you don't use the gallon in that time frame.
From an article here in 2005...Oils aren't going away - they can't legislate like that. In fact - these companies lobbied government and put the brakes on the epa for a while. Most latex paints are just as bad with voc's as their oil based cousins.
