Over the course of the past few weeks, we've been featuring each of our main cabinetry collections. Last week, we talked about Impressions and its two main series: IL and ID.
This week, we've decided to go over the Neo collection. Neo is a transitional style collection that is highlighted by its veneer slab door design.
Neo's signature veneer slab door design offers a sleek look while maintaining the natural beauty of wood. Veneer refers to a thin slice of wood, which is applied to an engineered substrate core such as MDF panel (medium-density fiberboard). This provides strength, durability and stability.
Neo includes two main series: Aries and Shinnoki.
Smooth lines make the Aries a sleek and beautiful choice for a contemporary kitchen. The thin wood edgeband lining the sides of the doors is nearly undetectable. Additionally, this veneer door is available with FSC certified materials or in a diverse variety of color and grain options of environmentally friendly reconstituted wood veneers.
What is your Water-Based Finish made of?
Water Based Finish top coat is a water-borne coalescing finish. It is primarily acrylic with some polymer content. When applied on our flat-line finishing system, it is cured using a UV lamp. Product that cannot be finished on the flat-line finishing system is cured using heat. We use both pigmented and dying stains to achieve the look of your finish on your selected wood species.
Why use water-based finished?
Water-Based Finishes provides a beautiful appearance, stunning depth of look, and smooth, touchable feel that exceeds expectations!
Environmental compliance is another key reason for choosing to use a water-based finish. Many solvents evaporate into what are known as volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. Water-based coatings don’t necessarily contain zero solvents, though. Many contain what are called co-solvents, solvents present in lower concentrations and meant to help push the rest of the water out of the coating as it dries. But since water-based coatings have either no, or considerably less solvents, they are a great way to lower the VOC output.
Shinnoki panels are made up of a top layer of veneer, an 11/16” MDF core and a balance layer on the back for stability. This range of wood veneer panels do
