Everything You Need to Know About 2 PAC Kitchen Cabinets

Are you ready to embark on a kitchen renovation? If so, you’re about to dive into a world of possibilities, where every detail counts. One of the biggest design choices you’ll need to make involves your cabinetry and 2 PAC kitchen cabinets may be on your list of options. There are a variety of different materials available for kitchen cabinets, but unsurprisingly, 2PAC cabinetry has become increasingly popular. This is thanks to its durability, versatility in design and premium finish.

So, should you choose 2 PAC cabinets? What are the benefits of using this material? And how can you ensure that your new kitchen cabinets will continue to look fantastic for many years to come?

What are 2 PAC Kitchen Cabinets?

The term “2 PAC” is short for two-pack polyurethane paint, the specialised product used to finish the cabinets. This paint finish is created by mixing two separate components together before applying it to the cabinetry. The two-pack process creates a hard-wearing surface that is resistant to chipping, scratching, and fading. As a result, 2 PAC kitchen cabinets are considered to be a long-lasting and high-quality product.

What are the Benefits of 2PAC Cabinetry?

2PAC kitchen cabinets offer a wide range of benefits to homeowners, including:

  1. Durability: These cabinets offer exceptional resistance to chipping, scratching and fading, ensuring a long-lasting finish.
  2. Customisation: They come in a wide range of colours and finishes, making them suitable for almost any kitchen style. They can also be colour-matched to suit specific preferences, offering greater design flexibility.
  3. Premium Aesthetic: The smooth, glossy finish of 2 PAC cabinetry can add a touch of sophistication and style to any modern kitchen design.
  4. Easy to Maintain: 2 PAC cabinets are easy to clean and care for, making them ideal for low-maintenance homes.

2 PAC vs. Vinyl Wrap Kitchen Cabinets

Homeowners often ask about the difference between 2 PAC and vinyl wrap kitchen cabinets. While both offer a range of benefits, the key difference is in how they are made. Vinyl wrap kitchen cabinets are thermolaminated. This means that vinyl is heated and then applied to MDF boards that have been cut to the desired size and shape. The vinyl is applied with a vacuum to ensure it moulds smoothly to the MDF.

Good quality vinyl wrap kitchen cabinets (such as the Polytec thermolaminated range) are hard-wearing and available in a wide range of colours and finishes. However, vinyl can be more prone to chipping and fading when compared to a 2 PAC finish (this is usually the case with cheap imitation vinyl wrap products). Vinyl wrap cabinets are also sensitive to heat, making them unsuitable for contact with hot surfaces.
