The Melamine Advantage

The Melamine Advantage

Melamine is a popular overlay for MDF or particle board panels. Formed with a hard resin, thermoset to a paper base, melamine panels are a versatile cost-effective option for adding texture and color to any design. Melamine is manufactured with bonding pressures of 300-500 pounds per square inch. The melamine sheet is then thermoset to a decorative paper laminate at high temperature. The result is a waterproof, durable plastic sheet, available in a wide selection of textures and natural wood grains.

  1. Thanks for sharing. That is why melamine now is mostly used in today’s kitchen cabinets.

  2. Why no melamine panels that would be pretty in a laundry room application? I don’t want fake wood grain look, but either a tileboard or an attractive patterned smooth print. IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND!!!

  3. Your point of view caught my eye and was very interesting. Thanks. I have a question for you.

  4. Thanks for sharing. I read many of your blog posts, cool, your blog is very good.
