Melamine Formaldehyde Resins
Melamine glues are preferred in various sectors, especially in the abrasive sector, with their properties such as resistance to water and high performance after bonding. Resins can be used as binders alone or in combination with different fillers, polymeric materials and curing agents.
Compared to raw UF (urea-formaldehyde) resins, the bonding ability is higher in raw melamine resins because of the irreversible polymerization reaction. High reactivity reduces the shelf life of melamine resin. Melamine resins can be modified in order to stabilize end extend its shelf life.
UF resins are binders obtained as a result of polymerization of urea and formaldehyde according to the sector and place of use. Different types of UF resins are used in the casting industry as hot box resins, and in the furniture industry as plywood and chipboard adhesives. UF resins, which can also be used with solution or powdered fast curing agents, can be synthesized with different properties upon customer request.
