An Alkorcell door is similar to one made with polymers: it consists of a decorative sheeting based on polypropylene (PP) without halogen, plasticizers and formaldehyde. A thermosetting paint gives the sheeting the strength necessary for use in the furniture industry. From a technical point of view, Alkorcell laminate is a continuous plastic coating that is highly performing in many different ways. Non-toxic, uncontaminated with components harmful to health and environmentally friendly, it is also impermeable: in fact, Alkorcell products resist moisture, mould and micro-organisms.

The lacquered door is made of a painted MDF panel (US EPA TSCA Title VI). The lacquering can be glossy or opaque (the unit of measurement for shininess is expressed in units of "gloss"). There are different categories of lacquering: the differences are substantially attributable to the thinner used for the application of base resins and the paint's hardening method. This process allows all parts of the door to be painted.

The lacquer is applied on a MDF panel (US EPA TSCA Title VI) and hardened under special lamps that emit high energy laser light for both the gloss and matt finishes. An ultraviolet excimer laser is used for the latter finish. This system allows a quick, effective hardening of the resins, producing a very hard, durable film that is soft to the touch, measuring 2 gloss units. With this particular planar painting process, the door is edged on four sides with a polypropylene strip, laser-glued and coated on the inside with matching melamine.

The veneered doors are composed of a chipboard panel (E1) covered by a veneer glued with special adhesives. The panels obtained in this way are cut and edged with a solid wood edge about 1 mm thick. Everything is then painted. The paint (coloured or transparent, to which a final protective coating is added) constitutes an aesthetic variable, but at the same time a protection of the door against external agents, therefore it must be preserved through appropriate use and maintenance. The veneers are made from various woods, and thus also the finishes obtained (called "species"). For framed doors, the central panel is veneered or also made of solid wood, depending on the model, while the frame is always made of solid wood.

A door in mortar is composed of a support made of HDF wood agglomerate covered in cement mortar or natural lime-based mortar. Cement mortar is made with mixtures derived from carefully studied mixtures of hydraulic binders and aggregates based on quartz and mineral sands with controlled grain size, free of salts and impurities. A percentage (1-2%) of stabilising elastomeric polymers is added to this compound to avoid tensions or cracks generated by sudden changes in temperature and particular dynamic stresses. The surfaces are then treated to allow the application of the skim coat, strictly by hand by expert craftsmen. Once dry, multiple coats of transparent acrylic coating are applied to the surfaces. This treatment protects against the infiltration of grease and dirt.

Polyethylene terephthalate is a modern, synthetic, eco-friendly and totally-recyclable material, which makes it sustainable and compatible for the environment. It is totally impermeable to water and water-based liquids and so is highly hygienic and resistant. The PET-covered door is made from certified MDF (compliant with US directives EPA TSCA TITLE VI) on which a PET polymeric sheet with a thickness of between 0.3 and 0.5 mm is applied, using special adhesives. The main features that differentiate PET from traditional plastic materials are its flexibility and excellent dimensional stability which make it durable over time. Its good resistance to heat, wear and thermal ageing make this product one of the most innovative and forward-looking materials. Being smart, yet discreet, PET is perfect for furnishing modern areas which seek a simple, yet refined style.

Glass doors are composed of an extruded profiled aluminium frame with a matte or polished, brushed/oxidised or powder-coated finish. A glossy or satin glass in bronze, transparent, stop-sol or painted versions with a thickness of about 4 mm is applied to the structure of the aluminium frame (in some cases with polypropylene honeycomb). The glass is always tempered, meaning that it is particularly resistant to impact. By its very nature, being non-porous, it is waterproof, hygienic, resistant to wear and aesthetic decay, and easy and quick to clean.

What do we need to assess in choosing the materials for doors in the kitchen?

The aspects to bear in mind are numerous: from ease in cleaning to resistance to weight, scratches, water and heat.
Our qualified personnel at all Cucine LUBE stores can provide you with all the information you require. They will also show you the most suitable material for your kitchen-unit doors according to your needs and explain how to correctly maintain them over time.

 

What is Fenix?

Fenix is an innovative material belonging to the family of laminates and 70% of the material consists of layers of paper, subjected to heat and pressure. Thanks to these processes performed using nanotechnology, doors made of Fenix are:

  • fingerprint resistant;
  • hygienic and with anti-mould properties;
  • impact and friction resistant;
  • able to be repaired in the event of small scratches.

What is melamine?

It is a material that consists of various layers of chipboard wood that are pressed and covered with paper impregnated with melamine resin. Though inexpensive, melamine has excellent performance, since it is:

  • resistant to impacts and abrasions;
  • easy to clean;
  • resistant to moisture.

What does ‘veneered’ mean?

The term veneered derives from veneering, a carpentry process which allows you to cover a wooden surface with very thin sheets of real quality wood. In addition to being characteristically elegant, veneered doors have numerous benefits, including:

  • good impermeability;
  • quick maintenance and easy cleaning;
  • excellent eco-sustainability;
  • resistance to scratches, impacts and heat.

What does ‘laminated wood’ mean?

A laminate is a panel of wood consisting of a number of layers. The base, in chipboard or MDF, is covered with two plastic sheets: one that is decorative (providing its appearance) and one that is protective. Its main qualities as a material lie in its hygienic and impermeable properties and that its colours remain steadfast over time.

What materials should one choose for an ecological kitchen?

Cucine LUBE has always shown a commitment towards using low-environmental-impact materials in its models, such as 100% recycled wood and doors made of PET, used for the Round model. This is a synthetic, totally recyclable material, which ensures maximum practicality due to its resistance to scratches, stains and heat.
