Melamine Formaldehyde - MF Melamine


Easily coloured (unlike Phenolics).  Taste and odour free.  Good resistance to solvents - stain resistant in general, although dependent upon filler choice.  Electrical properties relatively unaffected by high humidity (unlike Phenolic).  Self-extinguishing.


Inferior to Phenolic in dimensional stability in hot dry conditions.  More expensive than Urea or Phenolic.  Limited resistance to concentrated acids and alkalies.


Impact resistant crockery (e.g. for hospitals and picnics), toilet seats, pan handles and knobs, stain and cut resistant decorative laminates.
