But everyone assured me that it was fine and the seller suggested I could try it on an off-cut or an inconspicuous piece first. So I did - and as it seemed fine, I applied it to the large surface - and they were all right because it WAS fine :-) I gave the surface two coats of MDF sealer and then proceeded to paint it with a water-based, white Satin paint that you'd use for doors and skirting boards etc.. I have given it 3 coats of Satin paint so far but it needs a 4th coat to look as near to perfect as possible.
So if anyone else is wondering if this works - the answer is a definitive YES!
I applied two coats of the Rustin's sealer because I had far too much for my project - I bought the smallest size on offer - and I doubt that I will use it again in the foreseeable future. I anticipate that the primer/undercoat layers to be applied more easily than to bare MDF, and that the coverage will be greater and that the risk of patches will be much less. I will definitely use this type of product in the future when I need to paint MDF.
My only gripe with this purchase was the time taken to deliver the product to me. My fault, because the supplier, Plumbing Supermarket, stated that it would take up to 14 days to arrive, which was correct. But the project had to stand waiting for the delivery. Normally I would have got this type of product from Travis Perkins or Screwfix, but I had a few other items to buy from Amazon so I added this sealer to the order. Note to self - read the delivery dates before making an order!
I have been using it on lazer cut mdf it requires a bit of 'working in' where cut but does the job
I have found i need 2 coats but they dry quickly and there is no odour so can be used inside
Size is great and will last for ages
Perfect funtionality but a bit ugly from an aesthetic point of view. MDF sealers, I learned, are a very specialised paint and I was unable to find any in the big DIY chain in my town. I saw a 1 litre tin of Rustin MDF sealer in my local timber merchant and was told that it is not available in smaller tins. At £12.50 for quite a small job, knowing that I would only ever use a tiny fraction of the sealer, I was about to give up.
You can imagine I was deligted to discover that there ARE smaller tins. The sealer does go a very long way - I've hardly used any of it to start my project. It dries very quickly and even after the application of sealer, the ordinary piece of MDF was starting to look more pretty. It dries clear so that you can apply varnish as well as paint. I have used an oil based black paint and it is looking pretty good.
I am very pleased with this purchase.

Product is OK if you are not looking to paint the MDF to a mirror finish afterwards. The sealer is waterbased so although it does dry quite quickly, it still causes the fibres to... Read morePublished 1 month ago by A. Waddington
Maybe I was doing something wrong? I applied 3 coats to sawn edges but the MDF just kept on fluffing up so did not give a very good finish when painted over. Read morePublished 2 months ago by MR M.
