Thermofoil doors and drawer fronts are single piece, manufactured from high quality MDF, computer routed to a selected profile. Thermofoil – a vinyl-like material – is applied to the face and edges using heat and pressure plus adhesive to produce a permanent lamination. The backs are pre-finished white melamine. Matching laminate backs are available as an option on most finishes.
These durable products are completely finished, ready to install for years of maintenance-free use. They can be cleaned with methyl hydrate or mild soap and water. (Do not use any other solvent based cleaner or any abrasive cleaner.)
Due to the extremely high temperatures created by self-cleaning ovens, a filler should be installed between a thermofoil door/drawer front and the oven. As well, adjacent doors and drawers should be opened when operating in self-cleaning mode.Thermofoil doors/drawer fronts up to 36" high/wide are warranted for 5 years against warpage, color fading and de-lamination (subject to the above cleaning and heat guidelines).
