melamine surface paper
“Melamine” is one of the resin adhesives used to manufacture this kind of board. Paper with different colours or textures is soaked in resin and dried to a certain degree of curing. It is laid on the surface of particleboard, medium density fiberboard or rigid fiberboard. The decorative board is made by hot pressing. The standard name is “Melamine impregnated plastic film paper facing man-made board”, which is called “melamine board solid”. In fact, it is part of the decorative ingredients.
Generally, it is composed of surface paper, decorative paper, covering paper and bottom paper.
Surface paper is placed on the top of decorative board to protect the decorative paper. It makes the surface of the board highly transparent after heating and pressing. The board surface is hard and wear-resistant. This paper requires good water absorption, clean and transparent after dipping.
(2) Decorative paper, i.e. wood-grain paper, is an important part of decorative board. It has background color or no background color. The decorative paper printed into various patterns is placed under the surface paper, which mainly plays an decorative role. This layer requires that the paper has good covering power, impregnation and printing performance.
(3) Covering paper, also known as titanium white paper, is usually placed under decorative paper when making light-colored decorative board to prevent phenolic resin from penetrating the surface. Its main function is to cover the color spots on the surface of the substrate. Therefore, good coverage is required. The above three kinds of paper were impregnated with melamine resin.
(4) Base paper is the base material of decorative board. It plays a role in mechanical properties of board. It is made by dipping phenolic resin and drying. In production, several layers can be determined according to the use or thickness of decorative board.
When choosing this kind of panel furniture, besides satisfying color and texture, we can also distinguish the appearance quality from several aspects. Are there any stains, scratches, indentations, pore, uniform color gloss, bubbling, tearing or defect of local paper?
