What is Thermofoil

Thermofoil is a popular cabinet material offered by Arizona Cabinet Door Store. Its name may sound a bit technical, but its construction is fairly simple. Thermofoil is made by heat fusing a layer of vinyl to an MDF core (Medium Density Fiberboard). The vinyl is formed to the routed surface by heat, pressure, vacuum, and water based glue. The result is a durable surface that is smoother than paint.
