Fireproof board and melamine board are common door materials in the cabinet market, but many owners don't know the difference between the two materials, and the sales staff of some manufacturers also deliberately confuse the two materials and sell melamine board as fireproof board. In fact, there are some differences between the two materials. Here is a brief introduction.
Melamine board, also known as double decorative panel, one-time forming board. This kind of sheet is printed with color or imitation wood grain paper, soaked in melamine transparent resin, pasted on the surface of the substrate hot pressing forming. The cured melamine resin has good physical properties such as wear resistance and scratch resistance, so it is more suitable for the requirements of kitchen furniture.
Fireproof board, its standard name is fireproof board. Fireproof board is just a common saying, but it is not really not afraid of fire, just has a certain fire resistance. Fireproof board door board is made of fireproof board as veneer and particleboard as base material (also used for density board), which is pressed and pasted by cabinet factory. Compared with melamine board, the processing of fireproof board is more troublesome. The melamine board can be cut directly, and the fireproof board can only be cut after spraying glue for more than one day. Many decoration team, cabinet factory, there is no special machine platen, with some soil method platen, that quality can be difficult to guarantee. This also reminds the owners that if you choose the cabinet with fireproof board and door panel, whether there is professional pressing equipment is also worth noting.
Fireproof board veneer is generally composed of surface paper, color paper and base paper (multilayer kraft paper). The surface paper and color paper are impregnated and dyed with melamine resin to make the refractory board have physical properties such as wear resistance and scratch resistance. Multilayer kraft paper makes the refractory board have good impact resistance and flexibility.
Fireproof board veneer is three layers, relatively thick, and melamine board veneer is only one layer, relatively thin. Therefore, generally speaking, the wear resistance and scratch resistance of fireproof board are better than those of melamine board, and the price of melamine board is lower than that of fireproof board. Although both of them have the same resin in the veneer material, the differences in thickness and structure lead to obvious differences in performance. The two cannot be generalized.
