Using RTF Cabinet Finish
RTF stands for Rigid Thermofoil. It’s applied to an MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) substrate with heat and glue under pressure in a mercury vacuum press. The resulting product is attractive, easy to work with and very durable.
With the new veneers available today, cabinet doors look very much like natural wood. In fact, many of these veneers have natural looking wood grain texture built right into them. It has become the most popular choice for homeowners who want a beautiful product without all the trouble and upkeep of natural woods.
Rigid Thermofoil is pressed, using computer controlled heat and pressure, over a one-piece high-quality MDF panel with a low pressure Thermofused Melamine back, resulting in a high quality K.C.M.A. (Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association) approved product.
Scratch resistant White, Almond, Antique White, and selected Woodgrain patterns look as upscale and elegant as any material you could use for your kitchen cabinet finish. And these cabinet finishes can stand up to abuse that wood doors cannot. In test after test, this has shown itself to be the best product for the price in all kitchen remodel situations.
In fact, Better Homes and Gardens calls it“The 40 year kitchen” because of its durability and long lasting good looks! As technology gets better and better, expect to see even stronger products for your kitchen. Perhaps one day we’ll see a product that will look and feel like any natural element in the wild.
So, if you’re redoing your kitchen or remodeling to rent the home, this may be an extremely smart choice. In fact, if the actual cabinets are okay, and only the doors need replacing, this could be a cost effective upgrade as well.
