Materials + CareKeep your cabinets beautiful for years to come.

Just like the rest of your home, your cabinets need some care and cleaning to keep them beautiful. Here are some common materials used in our products, and how to care for them.

Thermofoil cabinets

Thermofoil

Features & Benefits:

  • Doors are created by vacuum forming and heat-bonding a rigid, opaque vinyl film (PVC) to an eco-friendly, furniture-grade medium density fiberboard (MDF) core.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Highly dent-, water-, and stain-resistant; protect from high heat and steam.
  • Matte finish solid colours are an affordable, more durable, and easier-to-care for alternative to painted cabinetry doors.
  • Textured woods look and feel like real wood, without the high maintenance care.

Care:

These doors can be wiped with a clean, damp cloth. To remove tough stains, use a soft cloth moistened with a mild soap or cleanser. Fine, soft scrub pads can be used without risk of damage if used gently; take particular care with super matte finishes.

Painted MDF

Features & Benefits:

  • Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF), itself, is a heavy, hard, strong, dense, stiff, uniformly textured wood product with no grain pattern.
  • . Euro-Rite’s furniture-grade MDF meets or exceeds CARB II and TSCA VI eco standards.
  • . Consistently silky-smooth texture and high density make it an ideal material to accept matte finish paint.

Care:

A soft, damp, lint free cloth (microfibre works the best) should be used to dust cabinets. Clean and dry spills immediately. Wipe dry with another cloth. Should you have grease build up on your painted products we suggest using a damp cloth with mild soap or cleanser to remove the build up. Any product used should be rinsed off with a damp cloth.

Wrapped Low Pressure Laminate

Features & Benefits:

  • Frames of doors are 3-dimensionally wrapped with the same melamine that the centre panel is heat bonded with.
  • Core is eco-friendly, furniture grade, particle board.
  • Doors’ assembly and appearance is similar to that of framed wood cabinetry doors, but they are lower cost and easier to care for.
  • Easy to clean, and highly scratch-, dent-, water-, and stain-resistant.

Care:

These doors can be wiped with a clean, damp cloth. To remove tough stains, use a soft cloth moistened with a mild soap or cleanser. Fine, soft scrub pads can be used without risk of damage if used gently.

Thermofused Laminate (TFL)

Features & Benefits:

  • Melamine is heat-bonded to an eco-friendly, furniture grade, particle board core, and edge with matching 1mm edge banding.
  • The melamine, itself, is usually 1-2 layers of decorative kraft paper, sealed with resin.
  • Easy to clean, and scratch-, dent-, water-, and stain-resistant.

Care:

These doors can be wiped with a clean, damp cloth. To remove tough stains, use a soft cloth moistened with a mild soap or cleanser. Fine, soft scrub pads can be used without risk of damage if used gently.

Features & Benefits:

  • A thicker laminate material than melamine is adhered to an eco-friendly, furniture grade, particle board core (using more pressure than low pressure laminate), and edged with matching 1mm edge banding.
  • The thicker laminate, itself, is created using 6-8 layers of kraft paper, glued together, and bonded under high pressure and heat.
  • Easy to clean, and highly scratch-, dent-, water-, and stain-resistant.
