I have some MDF that was sanded with a random orbital sander with 320grit

Will polyurethane make a decent bond to this?

  • Sure, I see no reason it wouldn't if the surface is clean and dust free. – shirlock homes Apr 9 '13 at 8:55
  • ok. I ask cause I keep reading that it needs to be a rough surface...120 grit... to have more surface area to bond. – Vigrond Apr 9 '13 at 15:26

    I don't know where you got the idea to use such a coarse sandpaper. You can urethane on the smoothest of surfaces. As long as it is clean and dust free, it will bond fine. – shirlock homes Apr 9 '13 at 20:03
  • thanks! hard to know what you're reading is the truth or not sometimes -_- – Vigrond Apr 9 '13 at 23:10
  • be sure to sand between coats of urethane with super fine paper, 220 or finer for a nice smooth finish. Be sure to remove all dust before putting on the next coat. – shirlock homes Apr 10 '13 at 0:21
