“Two Pack” is paint. There is a tin of paint and there is a tin of hardener. The two are mixed together to form a two-part (or two-pack) solution. Normal house paint would be termed as ”single pack paint.”

So Two Pack is basically a painted finish that is of the same quality as standard automotive paint. It is tougher and harder to scratch or wear than laminate finish. It is also easier to clean and definitely lasts longer.

When it is applied in the kitchen works, it is sometimes referred to as 2 Pac, and it means that the face and edges of the kitchen doors, drawer fronts and panels are painted with this very hard two pack paint.

  • Generally, two-pack comes in every plain laminate color, so you can change the color of your kitchen when you want for a minimal cost as the doors and panels only need to be prepared and repainted.
  • Two Pack comes in various finished. It is available in gloss, satin or metallic 2 pack finish and you can even two tone your kitchen to be unique and for instant style.
