Melamine board is widely used in cabinets manufacturing industry. Here, let’s find more about this engineered board.
Melamine or Thermally Fused Laminate is decorative surface option for particleboard or MDF panels and can be used to replace high pressure laminates in many applications.
Melamine Board is easy-to-clean, scratch and stain resistant. Melamine Board saves money and time because the application process doesn’t require sanding or finishing as with solid wood products.
Melamine Board comes in many colors and thicknesses and textures; it is ideal for cabinets, counter tops, furniture and shelving. It can be used for unique applications, as well.
Melamine furniture is constructed from a manufactured-wood substrate, like MDF (medium density fiberboard) or plywood, that has been covered in melamine laminate. The melamine resin gives these otherwise lower-quality materials a very durable and attractive finish! This is what makes melamine furniture, like cabinets, office desks, and display counters, so popular! While 100% real wood furniture pieces have their benefits, in many cases using melamine laminated furniture is the most cost effective, lightweight, and convenient choice.
Benefits of Building with Melamine Laminates
Durable – scratch & shatter resistant, waterproof
Inexpensive – covers inexpensive substrates like MDF or plywood
Choice – can be produced in a wide variety of colors & finishes
While the melamine itself is waterproof, if water gets to the particle board underneath, the dampness could cause the melamine to distort. Similarly, while melamine is very durable, if you incorrectly install or assemble a piece of laminate furniture in a way that damages its particle board, it could cause the melamine to chip.
