Melamine Information

Where’s Melamine Used?

Melamine is used in more products than you may think. It’s used to make a decorative film on laminate floors, countertops, walls, and other building materials. It is commonly added to wood and particle board to improve water resistance. Specially formulated melamine resins are used to produce highly durable coatings on metal, paper, fabric, and wood. Melamine resin is also used on paper products to improve wrinkle resistance and protect against moisture. The chemical properties of melamine also have flame-resistant properties which make it perfect for specialized paints, textile products, insulation, furniture, and bedding.
