Looking For A Better Solution To Sealing MDF Edges?
|Finishing MDF and achieving a good finish on the edges can be a time consuming and messy job. The MDF is porous and requires sealing, methods include using PVA filler, primers and a lot of sanding! |
A great alternative is MDf edging tape, known as Paintable Edging Tape, which provides an easy way for you to get a beautifully finished, professional looking edge on your boards, ready for painting, quickly & cleanly.
Applying MDF Edging Tape
Paintable Edging Tape is available pre-glued or un-glued. Un-glued edging is generally used with a glue pot edgebander machine. Pre-glued edging can be used with a hot air edgebander or is simply ironed on to your MDF edge with a normal iron on a medium setting.
Once the edging has adhered to the edge the excess is trimmed with a sharp Stanley blade and any rough edges lightly sanded, it is then ready for painting or spray painting. All paint types can be used, water and solvent based.
