The Thermofoil – The Smart Option
A door is basically made of two main components: thermoplastic (PVC), for the aesthetic coating shell and MDF (pine fibre), for the core structure.
Thermoplastic (PVC), is a polymer compound manufactured without pollutant emissions, using a water-based adhesion process allowing for a manufacturing process that is also emission free. Thermoplastic can be recuperated and is 100% recyclable. The cut-out leftover pieces from the manufacturing process are bundled and sent to a recycling facility.
MDF is made of 100% recycled or salvaged wood particles, amalgamated using a preparation of resin, that can be urea formaldehyde free. This EPP (Environmentally Preferable Product) certified medium-density fiberboard is certified to respect the standards and requirements that allow for collecting LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) points and USGBC (US Green Building Council) environmental building credits.
