Surface Preparartion

All surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free from contaminants. New wood should be sanded prior to coating to ensure an adequate "key" is produced. Existing painted surfaces should be cleaned, degreased and sanded to ensure an adequate "key" is produced. Remove all loose, flaking material and treat bare areas as new substrate then prepare accordingly.

Application Conditions

Do not apply when temperature will be at 7°C or below - as dictated by normal good painting practice. In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.

Preceding Coat

None, apply direct to MDF.

Subsequent Coat

Suitable topcoat.


Do not paint when temperature will be at 7°C or below during the painting and drying process.

Hello. I bought a moisture proof mdf that I wanted to use as a kitchen table. I chose the moisture proof one because of the green color. Anyhow, it is not water proof and the stains can not be cleaned so I wanted to use a primer to protect it and make the cleaning easier. Does a transparent/clear version exist? Is the product compatible with the moisture resistant mdf?

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Moisture resistant MDF would need to be thoroughly abraded prior to application of the primer. The primer must then be overcoated with a compatible topcoat as it cannot be left as a finish.
