comment How can I make MDF more resistant panels?
and that : While working with some MDF I started thinking if applying a generous coat of thinned Kondra secret finish would by virtue of soaking in and drying actually harden the damage prone edges of MDF. Yes I know solid wood is a better choice in some cases, but what about my idea. Any merit or is it a waste of time? I was thinking of applying the finish giving it ample time to harden, topcoating with Sealcoat and then apply the final finish.

Here is what i have found : Fibreglass resin or epoxy resin, mdf soaks it in readily and once set is almost water proof. Its great for the side/end grain as it glues all the fibres together enough that they can be polished glass smooth. here : woodworkforums.com/f9/cheap-paint-seal-harden-mdf-surface-69295

Is it possible to mix polymere or another type of hardener INTO the paint like epoxy or ciment to make the wall more like gyps !
