As the name implies, MDF facade consists of a frame and filling (panels). The frame itself is a molded profile of MDF. This MDF profile for frame facades is wrapped in melamine paper, PP film, PVC and veneer from leading suppliers of decorative coatings.
Frame facades are an interesting and versatile tool to give your kitchen a unique home atmosphere. These facades will be of interest to those who wish to buy a kitchen inexpensively, having the opportunity to create their own unique design. This is solved due to the widest assortment, which allows you to create hundreds of combinations of fillings and frame colors. To date, the warehouse base of the facing material has more than hundreds of decors.
One of the criteria that distinguish facades from a frame MDF profile, for example, is their practicality and resistance to high temperatures, environmental friendliness of the materials used. Layers of varnish protect frame facades.
The importance of the pasting step is that for gluing the invisible sides of the shelves and floors of your shaker kitchen cabinets online, a PVC edge is used with the logo applied to it. Such an edge is a guarantee that you took the opportunity to buy a kitchen from the qualified manufacturer.
The amazing process of kitchen material design
The production of facades from frame MDF profiles is equipped with the latest woodworking equipment from leading manufacturers. So, for cutting MDF and chipboard materials, machines are used. On the machines, the moldings are lined, and the decorative coating is cut to the required width. Milling profiles is carried out on the equipment of such companies as Weining (Germany) and SCM (Italy). On the format-sawing machines, Martin from the German manufacturer Otto Martin, high precision cutting of plate material with a high level of accuracy is performed. Thanks to such equipment, producing high-quality kitchens with facades from MDF frames is the norm.
For customers who choose natural materials, we would also recommend an interesting solution – facades made of chipboard coated with natural veneer. The veneer is used in the production of both its natural shades and impregnated with dye (to create fancy solutions). On top of these facades are covered with glossy or matte varnish. These facades have high resistance to humid and other aggressive environments, and thanks to natural veneer create the complete illusion that the kitchen is made of natural wood.
The facade is the face of your kitchen. With kitchens it is almost the same as with people: as many people as there are kitchens – each has its own facade. Only facades will give your kitchen an individual touch.
Facades made of plastic.
In the manufacture of plastic facades, a chipboard plate with a special composite glue splices with a sheet of plastic. For the production of such facades, companies use special paper-laminated plastic from such world-renowned leaders as FORMICA (Finland) and EGGER (Austria). When it is created under conditions of high temperature and pressure, using a press, certain types of paper are treated, treated with special absorbent impregnation. The thickness of such plastic varies from 0.3 – 2 mm and above. In the case of such plastics, their finish layer has a glossy, matte or structural surface that repeats the textures of various materials: from stone to wood. The color palette of plastics is also extremely diverse. Such a variety, combined with high performance (resistance to temperature changes, poor susceptibility to various detergents, mechanical wear, and solar radiation) and an affordable price, makes plastic one of the most popular materials for the production of kitchen facades today. Also, plastic is perfect for the manufacture of radiused facades, used in one of the most fashionable collections.
Facades from Acrylic.
Perhaps acrylic can be attributed to one of the most modern and high-tech materials that are used for the production of kitchen facades in today’s market. In such facades, special edges are used. In this regard, the process of coating MDF with acrylic plastic is quite complicated and requires special equipment and well-trained production, so that your acrylic facades can please you with their amazing gloss for a long time. You should immediately warn the potential buyer of the acrylic kitchen that the high gloss of the acrylic kitchens is at the same time their main “underwater” stone since noticeable fingerprints remain on it. However, this drawback is leveled against the background of other advantages of acrylic facades such as environmental friendliness, resistance to UV radiation and color loss, mechanical stress, as well as water and steam. The main thing – at initial use, process the acrylic facades of your kitchen with a special kit for the care of acrylic facades. Processing will give them additional resistance to pollution, dust and damage. Unlike other manufacturers, some companies have technologies that make it possible to produce kitchens with radiused acrylic facades. In particular, radius acrylic facades are used in allowing to produce kitchens with radial acrylic facades.
THE FRAME IS THE BASIS OF THE KITCHEN
The frame is the foundation of your kitchen. For the production of frames, companies use only high-quality chipboard 18 mm and 16 mm thick (OPTIMA class kitchens).
At the first stage, according to the production task for the day, the chipboard is delivered from the automatic sorting and buffer storage center to the format-cutting center. At this center, a plate is cut into parts. The life of your lockers depends on the quality of the pasting. In order for you to enjoy operating the framed kitchens, the factories use 4-sided edge-banding lines, which make it possible to smooth the surface roughness of the edge using a polishing unit. These lines are used to produce standard parts from the warehouse program. But some companies are famous for the fact that almost any non-standard products can be produced within their framework. In order to also high-quality paste over non-standard parts, lines are also used, only with one-sided pasting. On them, each side is glued separately!
The finishing process
At the third stage, SKIPPER and ROVER machines add and mill parts for your cabinets.
Due to the fact that these machines are equipped with the most modern computer hardware and operate according to a special program, the influence of the human factor is excluded, which means that the number of errors is reduced to almost zero.
Next are the complete set and packaging. Even in such a seemingly simple process as packaging at the factory, special semi-automatic lines are used. All products are packed in special cardboard boxes, which are also made at the factory. In addition, this is an element of protection against a fake.
Packed parts pass through a special scanner that distributes the boxes to orders and machines.
And now the first main part of your kitchen is ready to go to you.
The face of your kitchen is probably the most important element as it gives the first impression of what you can expect from the place you spend every single day of your life in. This is the entire process that goes into the creation of a beautiful looking kitchen space.
