What is PET board?


1) What is PET?


Before explaining the PET board, let me first explain what is PET material ? PET is a type of resin plastic made of poly (p-phenylenediamine), which is commonly used in mineral water bottles, cling films, edible oil packaging bottles, plastic boxes, etc. This type of PET material is not only safe and environmentally friendly, but also non-toxic, and does not produce toxic or harmful substances or gases, meeting food grade safety standards.



2) What is  PET board?


PET board is not made of PET material, but mainly the PET film on the surface of the board substrate. Therefore, what we usually refer to as PET board is not actually a board, but a PET film with a thickness of 0.35-0.6mm. The thickness of the membrane is thinner for imported products and thicker for domestically produced ones.


There are many types of substrates for boards, such as European pine board, OSB board ,density board, particle board, multi-layer / plywood  board, etc. Among them, this density board / MDF baord is the best choice as the substrate for making PET board is the best in flatness among all boards. By pressing and laminating the substrate and PET film through PUR lamination equipment, a very popular PET board on the market is ultimately formed. And often used for cabinet door panels.



3) Type of PET board


PET sheets can be divided into two types based on the degree of surface gloss, one is a glossy surface, and the other is a matte surface.

The matte surface here, also commonly referred to as skin sensation or anti fingerprint, skin sensation, as the name suggests, is the feeling of a board being touched by hand like a baby's skin, with a smooth and delicate texture.

The so-called anti fingerprint refers to the fact that we usually leave obvious fingerprint marks on the cabinet door after touching it, which affects aesthetics. However, PET film can instantly eliminate fingerprints in a very short time. Therefore, on the market, this matte surface with anti fingerprint skin sensitivity is more popular than a shiny surface.

Advantages and disadvantages of PET board


1) Advantages of PET board


01. High appearance value


The color difference of cabinet door panels made of PET film is relatively small, and the color choices are diverse, such as pure white, beige, or low gray, light coffee, brown color ,etc. It can be well integrated with several popular styles such as cream style, high-end gray style, medieval style, minimalist style, etc.


In addition, it can perfectly match and blend with popular elements such as wood grilles, rock slabs, micro cement, and other emerging materials. Having extremely high appearance and aesthetic effects.


02. High environmental safety


PET board is a material that can be licked with the tongue, and of course, it is not intended to be licked with the tongue. This is just a popular saying about PET material.


The PET material certification at the bottom of the mineral water bottle and the PET film on the cabinet door panel are the same material.

This material does not contain any chemical or metal substances in its composition, and meets absolute food grade standards in terms of safety. It is colorless, odorless, non-toxic, and does not cause any harm to the human body. Nowadays, many plastic bottles and food packaging boxes use PET materials.


On the other hand, in terms of environmental performance, PET materials do not contain any formaldehyde and are absolutely free of formaldehyde grade materials. However, the substrate in PET board contains a certain amount of formaldehyde, which does not affect its excellent performance, as it is directly in contact with people/air with PET film finish.


03. Stable performance in all aspects


The PET film itself is a type of resin material, and due to its unique characteristics and properties, it has achieved excellent wear and scratch resistance, acid and alkali corrosion resistance, yellowing resistance, compression resistance, high temperature resistance, and other aspects of the PET film, making it very stable.


From the perspective of factory processing, its physical properties are excellent, and during processing, there will be no problems such as edge explosion, cracking, or tooth burst. It can maintain excellent physical properties between -70~120 ℃.


Its anti fouling performance is also very good, and the surface is easier to clean and easy to manage. It is also an ideal material for kitchen cabinet door panels.


04. Smooth, delicate and comfortable touch


Matte PET board, also known as skincare PET board, has a smooth and delicate touch when touched, without leaving fingerprints, making it clean, tidy, and aesthetically pleasing.



2) Disadvantages of PET board


Because the cost of PET is relatively high, many PET cabinet door panels on the market usually use melamine facing paper on one side and melamine facing paper with a thin layer of PET film on the other side. Although cost savings have been achieved, the uneven tension on both sides of the board can easily cause bulging and deformation. The best practice at present is to add PET film on both sides of the board at the same time.



Process details of PET board


Because the PET sheet is made by pressing the base plate and PET film through PUR flat pasting equipment, and the PET film itself is also made by high-pressure extrusion of PET raw materials, this processing method results in the PET film itself not having any inherent texture.



The common PET sheets are mostly solid colored, and some are stainless steel brushed, cloth textured, wood textured, leather textured, or stone textured. These textures or pattern effects require printing on the PET film and are not inherent. The thickness of common PET film is approximately 0.35-0.6mm.
