Minwax sanding sealer is what BIG always uses IIRC. For my nursery wainscot project, I used an oil-based
Zinsser BIN primer (with the red label). Kilz makes something similar. I think you know this, but with MDF it must be oil or laquer-based for the primer layer. I chose oil-based because it was less caustic.
Regarding the code.....GFCI circuits use a standard breaker and the GFCI at the first receptacle location, then cascading to all other receptacle locations with standard receptacles of the correct amperage. For CAFCIs, install the CAFCI breaker in the panel and use normal receptacles throughout.
One other note....code now requires "TR" (Tamper Resistant) receptacles for new areas. I had to remove all of my brand new standard ones and replace with TRs.
Here's the code:
All nonlocking type 15A and 20A, 125V receptacles in the following areas of a dwelling unit [210.52] must be listed as tamper-resistant [406.12].
Wall space — 210.52(A)
Small-appliance circuit — 210.52(B)
Countertop space — 210.52(C)
Bathroom area — 210.52(D)
Outdoors — 210.52(E)
Laundry area — 210.52(F)
Garage and outbuildings — 210.52(G)
Hallways — 210.52(H)
Exception: Receptacles in the following locations aren’t required to be tamper-resistant:
Receptacles located more than 5½ ft above the floor.
Receptacles that are part of a luminaire or appliance.
A receptacle located within dedicated space for an appliance that in normal use isn’t easily moved from one place to another.
Nongrounding receptacles used for replacements as permitted in 406.4(D)(2)(a).
Nonlocking type 15A and 20A, 125V receptacles in guest rooms and guest suites must be listed as tamper-resistant [406.13]. In addition, nonlocking type 15A and 20A, 125V receptacles in child care facilities must be listed as tamper-resistant [406.14].
