MDF Black High Gloss Melamine: what is that?

Furniture panel is a fully finished board material, in this case with a melamine top layer. Melamine-faced furniture panels are widely used in the furniture industry and are gaining ground due to the versatile textures, colours and possibilities in terms of top layers. The advantage of melamine faced panel material, compared to veneer, is that it is ready to use immediately: no need to finish! This makes the product ideal for use. A melamine top layer is a veneer layer of, for example, paper fibres, melted together with a melamine resin. This creates a hard plastic top layer.

Melamine top layer

The furniture panels have a strong and hard melamine top layer, which gives them an attractive appearance and makes the wood durable. The melamine top layer has a high density, which gives it its hard and strong properties. A melamine top layer is water-repellent, easy to wipe down with a cloth and, to a certain extent, heat-resistant. Properties that are very pleasant for every interior application!

The advantages of melamine faced board material again:

  • Ready to use
  • Strong and water-repellent
  • Fixed colour scheme
  • Wide choice of colours and textures

Carrier made of MDF Natural

This furniture panel has MDF Natural as carrier. MDF Natural is the standard untreated version of the many types of MDF available. The board consists of wood fibres that are compressed under high pressure. This makes the material easy to process and does not splinter. Due to its absorption properties, MDF Natural is only suitable for indoor applications and in dry conditions.

Cut-to-size MAXXIgloss panels

There are different variants of melamine-coated board material, or board material with a melamine top layer. MAXXI is one of them. MAXXI panels stand for luxury and quality. Special production methods guarantee scratch resistance and colour fastness. This makes it a high-quality decorative product. MAXXI panels are specially developed for intensive use. Features that reinforce this are a high resistance to chemical liquids, cleaning agents and stains and also a high scratch resistance.

High-gloss melamine from MAXXI

MDF Black High Gloss Melamine has a top layer of high-gloss melamine that is applied to the carrier by means of a non-pvc film. The material is then treated with a composition of chemicals that make the top layer more resistant to discolouration and scratches. MDF Black High Gloss Melamine also has a high chemical resistance and is easy to clean with mild detergents. The appearance of the sheets therefore remains very attractive even after a very long period of use. This makes it an ideal product for use in kitchens, living rooms and bathrooms where furniture is frequently used.

The available thicknesses of MDF Black High Gloss Melamine are easily selected via the product configurator.

Machining of furniture panels

The great advantage of MDF with a melamine top layer is that it is immediately ready for use. Furniture panels are good and relatively easy to assemble if you are well prepared. Do keep in mind that melamine is sensitive when you start processing it. When assembling the panel, it is advisable to screw the screws at the back or bottom (make sure not to go through the material!). This way the screw holes are not visible and you avoid visible splinters of the melamine. Are you going to mount on the visible side? Then first place painter's tape on the spot where you are going to process the board. In this way, the tape absorbs the first contact between the tool and the board and the risk of splinters is reduced.

Specific applications of MDF furniture panels

Furniture panel is also called melamine-coated or decorative MDF and is widely used for making furniture. It is a versatile product that can be used for many purposes. Think of desktops, cabinets, kitchen cabinets, bookcases or shelves. Furniture often has a large surface area and therefore takes a lot of time to finish. By using board material with a melamine top layer, you no longer need to paint the board material and you ensure that everything looks neat and tidy. With the various possibilities of decors and textures, there is a suitable board material for every job.

Alternatives for furniture panels

Is MDF Black High Gloss Melamine not the right type of wood for your job? Do you want the board material in a larger format or in a specific (RAL) colour? Then also take a look at MDF film. You can easily paint this board material in your favourite colour. Or take a look at our other melamine faced furniture panels.
