Melamine is a trimer of Cyanamide with molecular formula C3H6N6 and a molecular weight of 126.123 g/mol. Melamine is a white or grayish crystal powder odourless, hardly soluble in water, DMSO and polyhydroxyl alcohols.

Melamine is a multifunctional monomer consisting of amino group with a characteristic high reactivity and a cyclic branched hydrophobic group, making it possible to manufacture the aminoplasts, the most common thermosetting polymers ahead of polyurethanes.


Melamime is produced from urea in following reaction:

6 (NH2)2CO → C3H6N6 + 6 NH3 + 3 CO2


Melamine had thermal stability. However, it contains 67% nitrogen and when it’s burned or charred, melamine has fire retardant properties due to its release of nitrogen gas.


Melamine is used as a raw material component in melamine resins when it’s combined with formaldehyde and other agents. 

Features & Benefits:

  • Chemical resistance
  • Hydrophobicity
  • Fast drying
  • high hardness
  • Heat resistance
  • Weatherability


Melamine is mainly used for high-pressure decorative laminates such as Formica, melamine dinnerware, kitchen worktops, furniture, laminate flooring, adhesives for board materials such as particle board (chipboard), MDF (medium-density fibreboard) and plywood, oriented strand board (OSB) and laminated veneer timber (LVT).

It’s also present in other application fields like coatings, thermosetting/moulding compounds, flame retardant foams, impregnated paper industry and textile auxiliaries, concrete plasticizers, Panel industry including construction panels, mimetic foam and mimetic fiber and many more.


Melamine is available in bags of 500kg or 1000kg
