The chipboards are panels derived from wood particles, mostly fir and poplar, and from resins low in formaldehyde. The glues which are used for pressing at high heat the panels can contain additives to improve the panels’ proprieties (waterproof, fireproof). The wood used for creating panels can be virgin wood or recovered wood and they can be covered with paper of melamine resin to improve the physicochemical properties, making them versatile materials for the carpentry. They can be FSC® certified on request.
Good workability and ease to cutting
Variable mechanical resistance: to increase it, the panels can be covered with plastic laminate or veneer.
BM Melamine chipboards
The Melamine chipboard is a wooden chipboard panel covered, on one side or on both sides, with paper of melamine resin, which is a synthetic material made of thin sheets of paper (about a tenth of millimeter) impregnated with melamine resin. Because of the use of this paper, this chipboard
is often also called “Melamine chipboard”. It is considered a quite cheap product, but the development of more realistic papers combined with a considerable hardness and high scratch resistance makes it widely used and very popular in the world of furniture.
The aesthetic beauty
The Melamine paper can be painted in any color and texture available. The most common and popular shape of this paper is the one that simulates the surface of natural wood. The result is perfect: it really looks like natural wood, with the grains included.
It has a high resistance to external stress: it is very difficult to scratch, stain and damage it in any way
The Melamine chipboard is a long-lasting material, also thanks to its resistance. It can be easily used in the kitchen, in the children’s bedroom or in the laundry room, given that it is suitable for frequent use without too many cares.
