The cabinet sheet is also the main body of the cabinet. When selecting the cabinet sheet, the solid material should selected. The cabinet frame thus made has high strength and long service life. The mainstream cabinet material currently on the market is particleboard. Particleboard has obvious advantages over other materials. First, the

 mechanical strength of the particleboard is high, and the frame

 produced is more robust. Secondly, the nail holding force of the

 cabinet sheet is good, so that the nail can be easily fixed to the nail hole and is not easy to fall off. Finally, the particleboard has

 good moisture resistance and is not susceptible to moisture deformation.

However, once you buy a poor quality particleboard, its performance will be greatly reduced. Not only the low density, the strength is poor, the inferior sheet will release harmful substances such as formaldehyde, which has a bad influence on human health, so the selection of particleboard is very important. The selection of particleboard is the main news. The quality of the particleboard should be odor-free. If the smell of pungent is heard in the particleboard, there may be hidden dangers of excessive formaldehyde. Secondly, the sawdust particles on the side of the good sheet should be of the same size and tightly arranged. If the particle size of the wood chips is uneven and the arrangement is loose, it may be deformed or broken after long-term use.

How to choose the door panel?

There are many types of door panels in the cabinets, and the range of choice is wider. At present, common door panel materials include melamine double veneer panels, fireproof panels, painted door panels, and plastic door panels.

Different materials, their characteristics will be different, let's introduce them one by one:

(1) Melamine board: It can also be called double veneer or paint-free board. Usually, particle board or MDF is used as the substrate, and melamine finish is attached to the surface of the substrate. The advantage of the melamine board is that the surface is flat, wear-resistant, corrosion-resistant and economical. The disadvantage is that the side of the sheet is easy to collapse. Once there is a problem with the edge sealing, harmful substances such as formaldehyde in the substrate can escape from the gap, which will have certain influence on the indoor environment.

(2) Fireproof board: The biggest characteristic of the fireproof board is fireproofing. It also has good heat resistance and is very suitable for use in a kitchen with a relatively high temperature environment. The fireproof board is not only fire-retardant and flame-retardant, but also has bright colors and various forms of edge sealing, which have certain decorative effects. However, the fireproof board is a flat sheet, and it is not possible to make a three-dimensional effect such as unevenness, so that the fashion sense is poor.

(3) Painted door panel: Paint is a new method of making paint. It is based on the paint on the board and then baked into the oven for high temperature baking. The surface of the paint door panel is very clean, easy to clean, and has good moisture and fire resistance. The paint panel is brightly colored, and it can also be shaped and curved, with a strong sense of fashion. However, the quality of inferior paint door panels will vary greatly. First of all, because the quality of the paint used in the inferior paint slab is poor, the adhesion of the paint film is poor, the lacquer finish is lack of luster, and the flatness of the paint surface is also affected. Secondly, the base material of the baking varnish is mainly made of medium density board, and the inferior lacquer board substrate will release a large amount of harmful substances, which will affect people's health. Therefore, when purchasing a baking varnish, you should select qualified products, and you should not be cheap.

(4) Blister door panel: Blister door panel, also known as moulded door panel, is made of medium density board as the base material. It is shaped by engraving, polished and then sprayed with special glue. After the second grinding, the surface is covered with PVC film by vacuum blister machine. Blistered. The plastic door panel is not only wear-resistant and waterproof, but also has the richest shape. It is the biggest feature of the plastic door panel. The plastic door panel can engrave the hollow pattern and has a good three-dimensional effect. However, the plastic door panel has poor heat resistance and should not be too close to the heat source.

Consumers can choose the right door panel material according to their own needs. Whether it is to choose the door panel or the cabinet board material, they should go to the regular shopping mall to purchase qualified products produced by regular manufacturers. Only when the quality-tested boards are used, the combined cabinets will have a longer service life and provide a better experience for consumers.
