Issues I Utilized in This Portray MDF Cupboards Challenge:
Primers For MDF:
- Zinsser’s BIN is my favourite as a result of it dries quickest and sands best.
- However I additionally like Kilz Authentic and Zinsser Cowl Stain. All of those are solvent-based, so cleanup is a ache.
- Each Zinsser and Kilz have just a few variations of water-based stain-blocking primers. They clog sandpaper greater than solvent-based merchandise. However I nonetheless use them after I need simple cleanup.
- As a substitute of primer, some folks use water-based polyurethane (akin to Minwax Polycrylic) to seal MDF. It dries quick and sands very effectively. But it surely’s probably not a primer and paint could not adhere to it as effectively.
