Medium Density Fibreboard

Painting MDF or Medium Density Fibreboard is not an easy job. The paint dries so quickly that it can dry in a very uneven and blotchy way. Special primers, such as the one below, are available for MDF and once applied the timber can then be painted with any ordinary paint. The MDF primer seals the timber effectively allowing other paints to dry in a uniform way. We recommend painting the timber with an undercoat, after the primer.
