Melamine Laminate Worktops
Melamine laminate is known as a low-pressure laminate because of the lower pressures used within the manufacturing process. To make this material, layers of paper are saturated within a melamine resin. Using thermal fusion they are converted to a solid and then applied to a core board.
Melamine laminate is a cost-effective, material to provide colour to worksurfaces. The durable finish also provides a level of protection against scratches and water. Melamine laminate worktops from Spaceguard are normally finished with 2mm thick PVC edging to finish the board.
- Manufactured to (EN 622-5:2006
Melamine-faced MDF is ideal for use in all furniture applications and especially for kitchen and bedroom door manufacturing. The high density core gives an excellent finish when routered giving greater design flexibility.
Cleaning and care
