Multi-wood is a new-generation material and its biggest advantage is that it is water proof. It comes in an attractive white shade and does not decay or absorb humidity.

These benefits make multi-wood the favourite cabinet material of the new generation. Since its surface is very smooth, multi-wood does not need a layer of veneer or even polish. It can be moulded to any shape as well.

Multi-wood is made from a material that belongs to the category of UPVC polyester resin. Sheets of the size 8X4 are made by removing the plastic component from the PVC.

These sheets are available in thicknesses ranging from 5-25 millimetres. Thin sheets are used for making cabinet carcases while thicker ones are used for making shutters.

While plywood is available in the form of multiple layers, the multi-wood comes in a single layer and helps in shutter operation without any rattle. Another advantage of multi-wood is that it can be drilled and engraved upon. The material is generally lightweight in nature and can be bent with the help of a heat blower.

A multi-wood shutter can be beautified by laminating it, adding a layer of veneer or by giving it a lacquer paint coating. Digital printing can be done on this material just like it is done on glass or ACPs.

Multi-wood is resistant to termites and does not easily catch fire. It is an eco-friendly material and can be recycled and used.

A disadvantage of multi-wood is that if it kept for drying under the hot sun after painting, the material has a tendency to get warped. Therefore, it is advisable that after painting the furniture is kept for drying at a place where there is no direct sunlight.

Multi-wood cabinets are available from Rs 1,200 per square foot onwards.
