pre primed trim


I bought some mdf crown molding. It comes pre primed. It has alot of detail to it so I would like to spray it with my hvlp before I install it and then do any touch up that are needed. I will be painting it with a latex off white paint. Should I re prime these with a quality primer or is the primer they come with good enough? Thanks.

There shouldn't be any reason to re-prime. If there where going to be any durability issues it would be with the mdf itself. I don't like mdf for high wear areas, but for crown molding it really is a good economical and eco-friendly option.

Back to your original question. I've never had a problem with the primer. So paint on and I'm sure it will turn out great.

Happy trimming

Thanks Jesse. Ya mdf isn't the best but it should be ok in this situation and I got a really good deal on it. Has lots of details. Thanks again for your help.
