What is Melamine and what are Melamine Boards?

Melamine is a chemical compound combined with agents to form melamine resin, which is durable thermosetting plastic. These characteristics give melamine board the ability to be made in an extensive range of colours and styles, such as replica wood textures and colours.

The application of melamine resin to chipboard, MDF or Plywood is what makes MFC (Melamine Faced Chipboard), MF MDF (Melamine Faced MDF) and MF Plywood (Melamine Faced Plywood), which are all types of Melamine Board.

Melamine Board has a wide range of benefits and advantages. One of the most common disadvantages is that it has to be attached to a substrate (the base of another material). If the base material used is of poor quality, the Melamine finish will also be of poor quality.

Overall, the board has a smooth, flat surface. Melamine boards have a highly dense and stable surface, making them the ideal material for your wood panels and furniture. Here at Alexander Cleghorn, we utilise the most innovative machinery and edge banding tools to provide the best finish to our extensive range of wood panels.
