CV corner fine cracks4/2/18
I've run into an issue on three large panels that were sprayed with Matador. It was a full kitchen, and only issues on a three big mdf panels in the corners of the moulding (its still one piece, not sperate).
Im pretty sure the cracks are from too much of a film build as from what I remember, those panels were a bit of a pain to get the pitting in the mdf centers fully filled, and I must not have sanded out enough material from the corners.
Im wondering if anyone has had this issue and been able to do an onsite repair.
The install is a few hours away, so my thought is to try to caulk those cracks and touch up with a quality water bourne match if I can, because the issue is only on those corners.
Could anyone help me out?
No caulking, yuck. Fill the cracks with a wax stick. Pad over the fills with Moahawk's Finish Up waterbase wipe on "polyurethane". It's non-yellowing.
To prime MDF, use a tried & true primer like M. L. Campbell's Clawlock.
I'm not familar with your topcoat. I don't know who the manufacturer is. But you may also be able to pad that opaque finish on instead of the Mohawk Finish Up material that I suggested.
The reason that I placed the Mohawk description "polyurethane" in quotation marks is that if the finish is a waterborne material, it's a coalescing coating, and that fact matters a whole lot more than the romanticized ersatz solvent name that the manufacturers place on their waterbased materials. FYI, Finish Up is based on a product called Fabulon, which I think was a floor coating or something.
Thanks a lot
I'll give that a shot!
