Preparation

For best results, ensure surfaces to be painted are sound, clean and dry. New surfaces in particular must be fully dry and free from all defective or poorly adhering material such as dirt, grease or wax.

  • Thoroughly rub down previously painted surfaces, using ‘wet flatting’ methods where possible, then wipe off with a damp, lint free cloth.
  • Spot prime all nail heads and metal fixings with 1 coat of an appropriate Dulux Trade metal primer.

Note: Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.

Application

Stir thoroughly before, we recommend to perform a test patch to ensure you are happy with the finished results.

Brush Application
  • Use a good quality synthetic brush, such as the Purdy XL Elite Monarch Brush
  • As with all water-based paints, do not apply at temperatures below 8 degrees celsius as recommended by British Standard BS 6150.
Airless Sprayer
  • Minimum airless spraying working pressure on paint of 133 bars (2000 lb/sq in) with a spray tip size of 0.43mm (17 thou) and a spray tip angle of 60°. Conventional spraying satisfactory through most equipment.
Thinning
  • New or bare surfaces: Add up to 1 part clean water to 5 parts paint.
  • Normal use (do not exceed): Add up to 1 part clean water to 10 parts paint.
  • Conventional spray: Add up to 1 part clean water to 2.5 parts paint.
  • Airless spray: Add up to 1 part clean water to 5 parts paint.
Aftercare & Storage

Store and transport upright, with the lid firmly closed. Avoid extremes of temperature and protect the tin from frost.

FAQ's

Q. What are the benefits of using Dulux Trade Quick Dry MDF Primer and Undercoat?

A. As the name suggests, it has a quick-drying formula that allows you to complete your MDF painting project faster. This is particularly useful when you have multiple coats or layers to apply. This product also combines the properties of a primer and an undercoat, eliminating the need for separate products. It provides excellent adhesion to MDF surfaces and creates a smooth, consistent base for the subsequent paint layers.

Q. Does Dulux Trade Quick Dry MDF Primer and Undercoat give a better finish?

A. MDF is porous and tends to absorb paint unevenly if not properly sealed. The primer and undercoat help to seal the surface of the MDF, preventing the paint from being absorbed too quickly and reducing the chances of visible brush or roller marks.
