    prime it if you want...if you want to paint/sand it. Otherwise, you'll never see your work under the carpeting

    Re: Primed MDF Board

    I've bought some mdf from home depot that is 'primed' I guess you would say. I dont know if it's the same thing..but it's almost like the mdf has resin/lacquer of some sort on it. Anyone else ever found that kind? I've only seen it once..

    Thats the only kind of MDF I have seen. Its just smooth on the faces.

    Re: Primed MDF Board

    I had some form Home Depot as well, it has a clear finish on it and that is about it, my guess is that it makes it waterproof. It might be a good board to use on slot ports to help ease airflow or maybe it ***** and I am making all of this up.
