What are sliding cabinet doors made of?

Hi
I've had a cabinet duplicated to match an original one.
No problem with the case, but we don't know how to replicate the doors.
My kitchen has original sliders, seem to be some kind of fiberglass.

I probably could take some old doors from a demo'd kitchen and cut them to fit...
I need 6 doors around 24 inch wide by around 22 high.
Thanks

Our 1960-61 doors appear to be 1/4 inch Masonite/hardboard. The backside has a fine crosshatch pattern (which might make it easier to identify the exact material.) It should be cheap and easy to reproduce these.

We've got a pair of 18x24 inch sliding doors from a bathroom cabinet. They've got the Zolotone texture, but were painted gray at some point in the past. Send me mail at bowdidge@earthlink.net if you'd like them.
