Cabinet Finish Process
CliqStudios.com has developed its finishes with Akzo-Nobel, a world leader in high-end paints and coatings. Our stain finishes are applied in a five-step color process that includes equalizing stains, toners, sanding and hand wiping to achieve depth and color consistency. Paint finishes begin with a flexible vinyl primer followed by a tough enamel color coat. Paints and stain finishes are finalized with a heat-cured topcoat varnish with UV inhibitors to protect and strengthen the durability of the finish.
Our stain process enhances the color of the wood and accentuates the natural subtleties of the grain. Stains come in a variety of tones and colors, ranging from light to dark and subdued to rich. The final effect will depend on the wood species and beautiful natural variations. Our kitchen cabinet face, door and drawer fronts are constructed with solid birch, maple, American cherry and oak.
Painted finishes hide all wood grain patterns. In the construction of our painted cabinets, we combine hardwood door frames with medium-density fiberboard center panels to minimize paint cracking at joints during changes in temperature and humidity. Our cabinets are available in white, linen and a number of designer paint colors.
Multi-Coat Finish Process
Our superior finishing process ensures the sheen and feel of your cabinetry endures for a lifetime. Every treatment and coating application is professionally applied and heat-cured in an oven to build strength for a quality finish. When the last corner is sanded and the final finishing topcoat is applied, the result is a smooth surface that protects against wear, scuffs and stains.
