Melamine is converted from the raw material urea and consists of carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen. It has become an essential raw material in the global production of synthetic resins. 80% of Melamine is destined for the wood-based panel industry. 

Melamine is providing tangible benefits in our daily lives

Melamine is the most valuable and sophisticated product in the nitrogen chain. Normally processed as a resin, this chemical compound is prized for the numerous exceptional qualities which make it so valuable in the production of articles used in everyday life. 

Melamine resins deliver:

  • High stability,  allowing end products containing melamine resin to resist high temperature exposure as well as physical and chemical degradation
  • High bonding potential, enabling surface applications with excellent properties like hardness as well as scratch and moisture resistance
  • High nitrogen content, making melamine an ideal flame retardant material
