Thermofoil Cabinets Repair: Steps To Repair


Thermofoil Cabinets are manufactured using MDF (medium-density fiberboard) with a vinyl shell cover. With time the shell becomes weak and breaks, and the shell gets separated from the medium-density fiberboard which results in the peeling of the cabinet at corners.

Steps To Repair The Thermofoil Cabinets

The Thermofoil cabinets can be repaired by following the below-given steps:
  1. Gather All Tools And Material: The first step is to collect all the material and tools that are needed to repair the Thermofoil cabinets like Disposable brush, Scrap wood, Contact cement, rags, etc.
  2. Pull The Thermofoil Layer Back: Next step is to carefully remove away the peeling Thermofoil from the medium-density fiberboard cabinet.
  3. Scrape Away Dried Cement: Then sweep away the dry cement from the surface of the medium-density fiberboard.
  4. Apply The Contact Cement: Now take a disposable brush and start to apply contact cement on the top side of the medium-density fiberboard and at the backside of the Thermofoil.
  5. Do Not Immediately Press: Then the users need to wait before pressing the two surfaces together. Wait for at least 15 minutes otherwise the surfaces will not stick with one another.
  6. Press Together And Secure: Now hold the two surfaces together and wait for 60 minutes.
  7. Clean Up: Last step is to take away the extra contact cement from the cabinet surface with the help of fingers and remove the residue.
