Application of melamine glazing powder

The source of Melamine glazing powder and melamine formaldehyde molding compound is the same. It is the product of the chemical reaction between formaldehyde and melamine. But the glaze is used to put on tableware or decals to make the tableware shine. When used on the surface of tableware and decal paper, it can increase the whitening degree of the surface and make the tableware more beautiful and generous.

(1) What is the melamine glazing powder?

Melamine formaldehyde resin has chemical resistance and heat resistance, is stable at the best purity and is insoluble in water, but the material should be stored in a dry place and kept cool.

Melamine formaldehyde resin glazing powder is very sensitive to moisture, so keep the package tightly closed to avoid agglomeration. The finished product is known for its excellent gloss, surface hardness, stain resistance, heat resistance and chemical resistance. Melamine formaldehyde resin is widely used in decorative foil and coating applications. Can make the surface of the article full of luster.

(2) Application of melamine glazing powder

Melamine formaldehyde resin is the condensation product of pure melamine and formaldehyde.

It is a fast-curing resin specially used for the impregnation of decorative paper and coating and glazing the surface of articles molded from melamine or urea molding compound.

Decorative paper is used to decorate the surface of products made of melamine molding compound or urea molding compound. In this process, the glazing powder is dissolved in water, and the decorative paper (previously designed) is impregnated with the solution. In the production process of articles made of melamine molding compound or urea molding compound, impregnated decorative paper is used in the molding process.

The surface of items coated with melamine glazing powder (for example, tableware) is shiny and hard, and is more resistant to cigarette burns, food, abrasion, detergents, and water absorption.

(3) Application and use warning of melamine

In the kitchen, melamine resin is commonly used for kitchen utensils and dishes (such as Melmac). Melamine resin tableware and bowls are not microwave safe. In the late 1950s and late 1960s, melamine tableware became popular. People think it threatens the dominance of ceramics in the market. In the late 1960s, melamine cups and plates were easily stained and scratched, leading to a decline in sales. Eventually, this material was largely restricted to the camping and nursery market.

Melamine resin is commonly used to saturate decorative paper, which is laminated under heat and pressure and then pasted on a particle board; the resulting panel is usually called melamine and is often used in furniture and kitchen cabinets that are ready to be assembled. Melamine comes in various sizes and thicknesses, as well as a variety of colors and patterns. But it’s heavy; when cut with a traditional table saw, the resin is easy to chip.


The powdered melamine formaldehyde resin used for the glaze of amino molded products is converted into a solution by dissolving it in water to impregnate paper. The resin penetrates into the paper, and through a combination of hot pressing and curing, a composite material of paper and polymer can be produced with excellent surface properties.
