Thermofoil Doors inspection checklist and quality control
- Texture is smooth and matte, smooth and glossy, or matte wood-grained, and is consistent.
- Available in many solid colours, as well as finishes that mimic wood.
- Colour and grain pattern, if any, are consistent.
- Easy to clean.
- Highly scratch, dent, water, and stain-resistant, though high-gloss thermofoil requires a little more care to prevent scratching.
- Doors are created by vacuum-forming and heat-bonding a rigid, opaque vinyl film (PVC) to a medium density fiberboard core; the fiberboard is made in Canada from 100% recycled wood content, and is certified as an Environmentally Preferred Product (EPP).
- Low-cost alternative to wood and painted products, and is more durable and easy to maintain.
- Can be susceptible to heat and steam damage if proper precautions are not taken.
- Slab doors with high-gloss finishes have brought new interest and excitement within contemporary design.
