In 2011, we hired a contractor(engineer) based in Kochi & Adoor and built Kitchen cabinets using MDF replacing Aluminium structure based Doors built in 2005 or so in our home.It was done by a Kochite Mr. Selin (Carpenter).By 2017 the cabinet doors collapsed due to termite attacks on the Marine Plywood Structure though they were painted every three years.MDF doors and marine plywood structure was an epic failure decision in Kitchen where there was lost of moisture.So now new Aluminium structure based doors were fitted back again.Having tried three vendors over the last 20 years for aluminium related works for home and office works,I find Newtech as the most satisfying provider though the other two people are also quality service providers.I recommend Newtech for aluminium based interior works. Newtech Aluminium Works, Opposite Siva Saw Mill, Padanilam. Mobile 8943326630.This is the third work they done for us.

MDF Doors are in fine condition.Marine Plywood structure that was holding it.They used MDF only on doors and rest was marine plywood though it was marketed as MDF based Kitchen cabinets.The top cubboard is still old one.Marine plywood damaged badly.Red and white are hilum sheets with aluminium structure.

    Don't use MDF for cabinets.now multiwood is there for interior /exterior works.

    If we use mdf or hdf sheet for kitchen cup boards, must apply auto motive paint with N.C putty is better and it durable for long time and it will give us better finish and appearance.Pls don't apply normal paint over the mdf sheets, it doesn't have the power of resisiting insects and fungus.Multiwood is better but it's very costly...and also should be painted.
