Compared to thermoplastics, melamine molding compounds exhibit:
  • Superior surface hardness that cannot be duplicated by thermoplastic materials
  • Superior heat resistance exceeding 99°C with UL continuous use index of 130°C
  • Environmentally friendly raw material components that do not contain Halogens, flame-retardant chemicals or organic solvents
  • Superior chemical resistance
  • Excellent scratch resistance that cannot be duplicated by engineered thermoplastic materials
  • Unparalleled UV stability and color retention
Melochem melamine molding compound provides unparalleled UV stability. Melochem melamine molding compound is well-suited for food-contact products. Melochem melamine molding compound is suitable for injection and compression molding.
