Priming MDF
 
I've got some MDF coverpanels I'm working with (access doors that are flush with the wall) that open on hinges ----that over utility meters, shut off valves, etc.

It will be paint grade.

Applied 1st coat of Gardz, May do a second.
Just knock it down with 120 and paint away right ?

Faces are pretty smooth already, the edges need some attention, maybe a filler. Why Gardz? Cover stain works fine.:)

I've got 4 primers in my stash....some more than others....

The primers I want to use up is....
gardz , fresh start Premium or Bin Blue.

The Bin Red I don't have enough for these panel covers.....but yeah, bin red would have been my 1st choice. The panel doors are flush with the wall (inset). I'l going to scuff it a little later to see how it feels after I light scuff. When I was putting the gardz....I was second guessing and wishing I had the oil down...

Hi - Gardz may be ok..I've never used it but it is listed as water base. Makes me nervous with MDF. On the other hand, it is formulated not to activate residual glues in old wallpaper situations so ????? Maybe somebody else will jump in here later.

EDIT - Just got to thinking (not always a good thing) but since the edges are the most susceptible to moisture, just seal the edges with what BIN red ya got and use whatever else for the surfaces.
