WHAT IS THERMOFOIL?
Rigid thermofoil or RTF is a form of laminate; it’s a vinyl film applied to a substrate (MDF) with heat and pressure. Thermofoil is available in a large variety of solid and wood grain colors, including high gloss and metallic colors. Most often used in cabinetry, thermofoil products are easy to care for and are not likely to chip.
WHAT IS MDF?
Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) is integral to the construction of many furnishings. The many benefits of MDF have led to it becoming the popular and functional choice in furniture construction. Manufacturers of school, home and office furniture and accessories include it in the construction of desks, high quality marker boards, work surfaces, pillars and other products. It is very strong, provides longevity and is resistant to warping that occurs over time, caused by moisture. Consumers benefit with cost savings compared to real wood, because MDF boards are man-made from wood fibers, rather than particles. It’s easily cut, drilled and machined.
MDF is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood or softwood into wood fibers, combining them with resin binders, and forming into panels by applying heat and pressure. It is more dense and durable than particleboard. Because MDF is stronger, uniform, dense, smooth and free of knots and grain patterns, it boasts superior resistant to warping that may often occur over time and makes an excellent substitute for solid wood in many applications.
MDF also reduces wood waste. Landfill waste is reduced, deforestation slowed and habitat preserved, because it’s possible for MDF to be made from 100% recovered wood fiber.
