A couple coats of BIN should do the trick.

Couple of coats of primer, and sand the edges with 320/400. Should do the trick.

A friend is spraying about 40 new mdf shelves in a new house. He asks me how to seal the edges. Told him to keep a roller handy to hit the edges but he was wondering if there is a product he could spray on to seal without rolling

You could use a lacquer undercoater (that's what I use), either pre or post cat. Used one that is high in solids (> 40%). Either will work very well if you use the right products. Sand the edges first with 320 then with 400. Do two coats on the edges, or just double prime the whole unit. You will get a factory finish.
