Melamine-formaldehyde resin is an amine resin produced through polycondensation of melamine and formaldehyde.
The reaction between formaldehyde and melamine produces derivatives which include different numbers of methylol groups with formaldehyde by being added to amine groups (2, 4, 6 - triamino-1, 3, 5- triazine) in melamine. Number of methylol group can be increased to six. Methylols which can be dissolved in water are cross bound over methylene or ether bridges at high temperatures producing melamine-formaldehyde resin.
Polisan Kimya MF resins are transparent, low-viscosity (30 - 90 cPs@20°C) products with 52 – 60% solid matter content. Modified with a number of additives Polisan Kimya MF resins are among preferential products in the market due to their high penetration features and excellent surface properties. They have high thermal and humidity resistance.
Our MF resins are employed in decorative paper impregnation, barrier, balance and primer impregnation, post-forming kraft and overlay, kraft impregnation for tray manufacturers and parquet overlay production for flooring.
Having an extensive area of use, melamine-formaldehyde resins are also used in Textile Industry, concrete chemicals, roofing products, additionally, solvent-based modified melamine-formaldehyde resins are used as binding agent in industrial paint production.
