Melamine Resin Production Cost Analysis 2020
Melamine resin or melamine formaldehyde is a resin with melamine rings terminated with multiple hydroxyl groups extracted from formaldehyde. It was discovered by William F. Talbot, who applied to patent it on December 12, 1936. This thermosetting plastic material is created from melamine and formaldehyde. In its butylated form, it is miscible in n-butanol as well as in xylene. It is then utilised to cross-link with alkyd, epoxy, acrylic, as well as polyester resins that are utilised in surface coatings. There are numerous types of melamine resins, varying from very slow to very fast curing.
Melamine resins can be cured by heating, which induces dehydration and cross-linking. The cross-linking can be carried out to a limited degree to give resins. Either the melamine resins or the melamine-formaldehyde monomer can be cured by treatment with any of the several polyols.
The primary utilisation of melamine resin is as the principal constituent of high-pressure laminates, like Formica and Arborite, and of laminate flooring. Melamine-res tile wall panels can also be utilised as whiteboards. Melamine resin is also utilised in plastic laminate or overlay materials. Formaldehyde can be more tightly bound in melamine resin than in urea-formaldehyde, thus, reducing emissions.
