Alkyd

al•kyd

\ˈal-kəd\

noun

Refers to synthetic resin that is modified with oil. This results in a good level of adhesion and leads to a high-quality gloss and clean surface. Alkyds are slow to dry but provide a high level of flexibility and color retention.

You should use an alkyd if you want a glossier finish than a water-based paint because it is oil-based.
