A polymer is a chain of monomers that creates a plastic material. This material can be made of many different materials, such as PVC sheets to make cabinet covers. It is a thin plastic sheet that will be applied to a wooden panel.
A polymer cabinet consists of a wooden panel of MDF (medium density fibreboard) covered by a flexible polymer sheet. The plastic (PVC) sheet is applied to the wood panel with heat on all sides of the panel to cover it completely.
Polymer cabinets are popular for kitchen and bathroom design because of its versatility and the many styles available.

How do I clean polymer cabinets?
Cleaning polymer cabinets is not difficult to do and does not take much time. Use a simple damp cloth with soap and scrub the surface of the cabinets. In case your cabinets are greasy and you have difficulty removing the stains, use degreasing dish soap. This will be able to completely remove the embedded materials from the surfaces of your cabinets.

Although polymer cabinets have many advantages, they do have a few small drawbacks to consider.

- A polymer cabinet is subject to extreme heat, and can deteriorate over time. Pay attention to cabinets near heat-emitting appliances such as toasters, kettles, dehydrators, stoves, and more.
