Best Masonite subfloor sealer?


In our house I am removing all the carpets and installing "Cliks by Daltile", a floating ceramic tile floor that clicks together - no mortar, thinset or grout needed. One bedroom had plywood subfloor that I cleaned then sealed with 2 coats of Kilz Primer. Next bedroom has a masonite/hardwood floor with pet stains that need to be cleaned then sealed. I have read that it is hard for anything to stick to masonite and I need to use a laquer sanding sealer (2 coats) then Kilz will stick to it. Why would I need to use the primer? Won't the lacquer seal everything in the subfloor? Thanks for any help!

It will be easier and better to remove the old Masonite ---

I agree with O'Mike. Masonite was supposed to be installed rough side up, but most people installed it smooth side up and nothing will stick to it.

One over many build it faster and cheaper ideas that just did not work out.
Masonite siding, particle board, using 1/2 for subflooring, Quest plumbing, Cellotex sheathing all come to mind.

I'd also suggest you rethink this "floating ceramic tile" product. It's another "shortcut" similar to the masonite that you will probably regret. There are a LONG line of previous iterations of that that have done nothing but have claims and been discontinued. Tile requires a SOLID subfloor with no deflection, which is the very opposite conditions given by floating a floor. If you want a tile floor, you can certainly DIY a tile install. But, it won't be done with a shortcut method.

Thank you all for the replies to my question - replacing the masonite is the way to do it right but I am keeping the "Cliks" tile. I have already used it in one room and love the way it turned out.
