Melamine is white. However, it contributes sustainably to the lifecycle of wood-based products. It is a non-hazardous chemical produced in energy efficient way and according to strict EU regulations.

Waste as a raw material

Green n

The time when people had access to an endless supply of wood is over.
Now we have to act economically with all of the earth’s resources. Still we want kitchens, furniture, floors and a lot more. Our buy motive most probably includes the right combination of form, function, quality, sustainability and price.
The European wood-based industry, including decorative surfaces and furniture producers are – increasingly – using substantial amounts of recycled materials. Raw materials such as wood are cascaded in sequential steps as long, often and efficiently as possible. The CO2 captured in the wood is efficiently stored in these products. Making furniture from waste material and finishing it off with a decorative surface is a good illustration of the circular economy approach.

What is melamine contributing?

The use of recycled products is relevant, but form, design, quality and price are equally important elements of choice. Melamine-based decorative surfaces offer this choice: they are strong, resistant and allow unlimited freedom of design.
Melamine-containing products can be ground and re-used as a raw material by the woodworking industry for the production of furniture, kitchen tops or floors. Things you can use to furnish and decorate your house, office or public space.
This is an excellent example of the circular economy principles.
Melamine is a key product to close the loop.
