Collection Spotlight: Classic
Over the course of the past few weeks, we've been featuring each of our main cabinetry collections. Last week, we talked about Neo and its transitional look.
This week, we've decided to go over the Classic collection. Classic is a somewhat traditional style collection that is highlighted by solid wood doors with raised or recessed panels.
Classic is offered with four wood species: maple, cherry, alder, hardwood painted grade; along with three finish types: clear, stain and painted; and over 20 finish color options.
All doors can be custom made to order with specific desired wood species, finish type and color.
Our Water-based finish
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 to our flat-line finishing system, it is cured using a UV lamp. Woods that cannot be finished on the flat-line finishing system are cured using heat. We use both pigmented and dying stains to achieve the look of your finish on your selected wood species.
Why use a water-based finished?
Water-Based Finishes provides a beautiful appearance, stunning depth of look, and smooth, touchable feel that exceeds expectations!
Environmental compliance is key...
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.
