Is particle board the best material for kitchen cabinets or bathroom vanities? In our opinion, no, it is neither waterproof nor durable. Let us share an ideal material, PVC foam board.
Yes! ! If you are looking for a material to make kitchen cabinets or bathroom vanities, PVC foam board is perfect. It is not afraid of wet conditions and is fully capable of applications that require protection against moisture.
For furniture made of particle board, especially those used in kitchens and bathrooms and wet basements, the biggest damage to them may be moisture. Moisture penetrates into the cabinet through the space with loose edge sealing, and the particle board seems to be awakened. Then all you see is mold on the edge of the cabinet board, loose cabinet door, and deformation of the cabinet board. Everything reminds you: either maintain or replace.
Fortunately, we have PVC cabinets to choose from. It resists moisture and works properly.
By PVC cabinets, we mean cabinets made of PVC foam board. PVC foam board is a multi-functional plastic building board with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) as the main raw material produced by foaming process. Foaming makes it lighter, only one-third the weight of solid PVC sheet. The PVC foam board we produce is 100% free of plasticizers and is an environmentally friendly, odorless and non-toxic material. PVC foam board for cabinets or furniture usually has a laminate surface, which makes it impossible to tell from the appearance that it is a plastic board.
The biggest advantage of PVC foam board for furniture is its waterproofness. PVC foam board does not absorb water at all even if it is soaked in water. Therefore, PVC cabinets are especially suitable for use in wet or water-contact places such as kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and balconies. Even if the surface material or edge of the cabinet is damaged and the PVC foam board inside is exposed, there will be no mold or deformation at all. PVC cabinets are maintenance free and easy to clean. When there is dirt, use detergent and wipe it clean.
Particle boards use a lot of glue in the manufacturing process, and most glues contain formaldehyde. This means that the white cabinet made of particle board in your house is likely to be releasing formaldehyde. PVC foam board is formaldehyde-free, odorless and non-toxic. Even the adhesives we use to produce laminated PVC sheets are environmentally friendly and safe. The PUR hot melt adhesive we have been using is itself formaldehyde free.
