Forum Title: Primer for MDF sheets
The GC I'm been working with for quite makes more and more his baseboards, door/window frame and trim from Sheets of MDF that he cuts to the right lenght and width. They say it's less expensive and gives a more modern look. So far as standard procedure I've been using aqualock (which I use as my standard primer) and top coat with pearl latex as we do often here. If the budget allows it, I like to use advance as a top coat for a harder finish, the customers likes it a lot. I was wandering if you guys would think of a better primer for sealing the mdf and helping with the top coat. So far my system works, but I'm always trying to improve. Also, the side from the mdf is super porous for obvious reasons. Regards.

I would say you're getting in the way that you're approaching these paints and primers. I would also consider smart Prime when deciding on a very good primer for MDF. Make certain that if you are using Advanced to only give it one coat per day to allow for complete curing.
