New MDF cabinet doors


Hello Everyone!
I'm purchasing new kit MDF cab doors and am painting over the old, original brown cabinets.

I know I need to lightly sand and prime everything but heard that the MDF needs an oil based primer. I've purchased the primer Fine Paints of Europe (expensive but excellent) ECO "urethane-alkyd-emulsion". It's water thinnable.

Two questions: Would the "alkyld primer" be ok and can I use this paint in a cheaper Wagner paint sprayer?

I use Zinsser as a primer for MDF. MDF will bleed with regular primer.
Spread 2 coats on the cut edges and profiles. sand between coats.

Does the Zinsser have oil AND latex? Is it ok to use w/ a cheaper Wagner paint sprayer (I realize there's a thinner to buy separate w/ the sprayer)?

Thanks for your quick response.

can be sprayed, but I use a 4 inch foam roller.

this is the water-based product. http://www.zinsser.com/product_detail.asp?ProductID=11
