Kitchen Cabinets and Counters

Global Adhesives Manufacturer Operating in Many Markets & Applications Innovative Adhesive Products and Solutions
Commonly assembled with medium-density fiberboard (MDF) cores, thermofoil vinyl-faced doors are more stable, have a lower tendency to bow or crack, and cost less than solid wood. There are some challenges with vinyl-faced cabinet doors and wood panel lamination, however. PVC-coated cabinet doors typically do not hold up when exposed to high heat as the vinyl starts to pull away from the MDF core. As a result, manufacturers generally have very strict production specifications that cabinet fabricators and suppliers need to follow when designing, building, selling, and installing thermofoil cabinetry.
H.B. Fuller’s Swift®tak dispersions help solve this problem for cabinet door manufacturers. This solution is a waterborne polyurethane adhesive used for membrane pressing and is ideally suited as a lamination and countertop adhesive in cabinet manufacturing.
