Melamine-Formaldehyde (MF) Resins

Melamine-formaldehyde resins

Melamine-formaldehyde resins are used in the production of composite panels such as medium density fiberboard (MDF) and particleboard (PB). There are several applications where melamine-formaldehyde resins are currently used to meet specific customer requirements such as moisture resistance.

The LEAF® GB line of wood adhesives includes melamine-formaldehyde resins. These resins may be used to help meet certain green building standards in applications such as composite panels, medium density fiberboard (MDF), particleboard (PB) and hardboard (HB). These resins can be used in tandem with GP Chemicals unique scavenger systems to further improve an emissions profile. They can be customized to meet California Air Resource Board (CARB) Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) Phase 2 emission requirements and have been substituted into existing manufacturing processes.

In addition, GP Chemicals manufactures a variety of MF resins used in applications such as backcoating acoustic ceiling tile and low and high pressure laminates.

GP Chemicals also produces a line of triazone products that can extend base polymers, reducing costs while maintaining performance of the end product.
