Melamine’s a Must

If you are sitting at a wood grained desk as you read this, chances are you are resting your arms on a piece of furniture that uses melamine. Melamine has been worked into various items from furniture to cabinets to closets. Over the years, it has grown as new styles and textures hit the market, providing new possibilities for melamine incorporation into projects and designs. Melamine is one of the most adaptable, versatile and durable offerings from Timber Products Company.

Melamine

Melamine is made by thermally fusing a polymer laminate onto a wood substrate and is available in a wide variety of patterns and colors that will work with many applications. It also comes in different textures, such as the appearance of distressed wood. Our textured melamine line was launched about two years ago, and with added colors, it is being reintroduced to the market. "With the new colors and textures, it is difficult to discern melamine from wood until you're close enough to it," said Lori Burke, Business Development Manager for Spectrum.

Melamine brings with it a host of practical advantages like its durability, affordability, and overall design. The base can be a combination of plywood, particle board, MDF and our Apex panel. Properties such as cost, screw holding ability and weight are different between these various base materials, however, they all provide a smooth laminating surface.

Melamine is also used with our SpectraBoard, a unique panel developed by Timber Products and Spectrum, which houses a veneer face and melamine back. Because of this, SpectraBoard cabinets have a beautiful wood exterior with the easy cleanup and durability of a melamine interior. It provides a long lasting resistance to scuffs and moisture as well as a surface that is always smooth, straight and easy to clean.

If you have a product that requires both durability and style, consider melamine. For more information, visit our website to read up on melamine and SpectraBoard.
