Medium-density fiberboard (3/4” thick 49lb MDF) with a three-stage lacquered finish using 2K catalyzed polyurethane sealer, primer and top coat. Select one of our standard seven designer colors, or choose a custom color from the Benjamin Moore or NCS pallets. All panels have a low-sheen finish (20% Satin) to create a soft appearance and silky touch. Lacquered colors are available in smooth panels with your choice of integrated pull. (Zero VOCs, UV resistant, No urea-formaldehyde)
Lacquered fiberboard is available in the following colors:
Natural hardwood veneers are selected for their handsome grain patterns, their warm rich colors and dramatic grain patterns. Colors range from light blond and honey amber, to reddish browns with dark chocolate grain patterns. Individual wood veneers are laid on 3/4" (49 lbs.) MDF core, finished (Grade A-1) and sealed with low-sheen (20% Satin) clear catalyzed conversion varnish. Available only in smooth panels without integrated pulls. (FSC Certified, UV resistant, No urea-formaldehyde)
Reconstituted or engineered veneers are made from common hardwoods dyed to simulate natural colors or soft stains difficult to achieve in natural woods. This technology produces rich colors using environmentally safe water base dyes. Quarter slicing eliminates dramatic grain patterns, color variation, and provides perfectly sequenced veneers. Available colors range from soft pastels and natural fir, to chocolate brown and slate blue. RCN veneers are laid vertically (Grade A-1) on 3/4" (49 lbs.) MDF core with matching edge banding, then sealed (2-sides) with low-sheen (20% Satin) clear catalyzed conversion varnish. Available only in smooth panels without integrated pulls. (FSC Certified, UV resistant, No urea-formaldehyde)
Solid Surface materials are ideal for CNC machining into custom shapes and pulls. They exceed the strength and performance of other cabinet materials. Clear Medium Density Fiberboard (3/4” thick 49 lbs. MDF) is finished with low-sheen (20% Satin) clear catalyzed conversion varnish, and is available in smooth slab panels with your choice of integrated pull. Charcoal colored solid phenolic core (CPHPL) formerly called “Bakelite,” is available in charcoal black. Phenolics are comprised of melamine impregnated paper and reinforced paper fibers. A phenolic panel resists fire, boiling water, abrasion, impact, acids and stains – and is stronger and more stable than solid wood. It is an attractive alternative to stainless steel in professional kitchen design. Due to its weight, it is recommended largely for base cabinet panels, oven surrounds, end panels and door sizes 30 x 24 inches or smaller. Dunsmuir Cabinets offers charcoal phenolics in smooth panels with your choice of integrated edge pulls.
Textured Laminates are a Thermal Structured Surface (TSS) made of a thick melamine shell over 3/4” thick industrial grade 45lb. particle board core with matching thermal edge banding. We prepare these panels as smooth slab doors or shaker patterns in your choice of seven luxurious color patterns. Textured Laminates present a durable, affordable environmental alternative to wood veneers. They add a variety of colors and finishes otherwise difficult to achieve in natural woods. All panels are prefinished with a gentle texture and simulated wood grain. Textured laminates resist moisture, abrasion, stains and heat, and are available as smooth slab doors with satin aluminum Pulls 6 and 7.
Textured Laminates are available in the following colors:
Fenix NTM is a super opaque nanotech laminate characterized by next generation acrylic resins hardened and fixed with electron curing. All panels are 3/4" finished one side in Fenix NTM with color match Arpa backer and thermal edge banding. The 3/4" thick core is an industrial grade 45lb. particle board for dimensional stability in heat and humidity. The finish has a low light reflectivity; it is extremely opaque, fingerprint resistant and features a soft smooth touch. Fenix panels are available in smooth slab panels or with continuous aluminum Pulls 6 and 7, in satin finish or powder coated in a matching color. More information at fenixntm.com
Prefinished veneers are natural hardwoods brushed, pre-stained and lacquered to create a consistent color and grain sequence or a mix match veneer pattern. They produce a range of colors from soft grays to dramatic dark walnut patterns, all difficult to achieve with natural wood veneers. Individual wood veneers are laid on 3/4" (49 lbs.) MDF core, finished (Grade A-1, 2 sided or 1 sided) and sealed with low-sheen (10% matt) acrylate urethane finish. Available only in smooth panels without integrated pulls.
