Cracks in melamine resin surfaces
Melamine resin-impregnated papers are the dominant coating material for wood-based materials for indoor applications. In rare cases, cracks can occur on such surfaces - often weeks or months after delivery. We are identifying the significant parameters in order to achieve adequate crack resistance in melamine resin-impregnated papers and are thereby developing appropriate testing methods.
