Melamine VS Plywood For Kitchen Cabinets

Introduction to melamine kitchen cabinets

Cabinet melamine board is also called double veneer board, MFC and Aigle board. It is a kind of man-made board for the door panel in the whole cabinet, with particle board as the base material, covered with melamine impregnated computer patterned decorative paper on the surface, and made of decorative board after high temperature with a certain proportion of adhesive. In the production process, it is generally made by combining several layers of paper, the number of which depends on the usage. Melamine kitchen cabinets are generally composed of surface paper, decorative paper, covering paper and base paper.

Surface layer paper: is placed on the uppermost layer of the decorative board, to protect the decorative paper, so that the surface of the board after heating and pressure is highly transparent, the surface of the board is hard and wear-resistant, this paper requires good water absorption, white and clean, transparent after dipping glue.

Decorative paper: wood grain paper, is an important part of the decorative plate, with a base color or no base color, by printing into a variety of patterns of decorative paper, placed below the surface layer of paper, in the overall design of the cabinet mainly plays a decorative role, this layer of paper requires good covering power, impregnation and printing performance.

Covering paper: also called titanium white paper, generally in the manufacture of light-colored decorative panels, placed under the decorative paper to prevent the underlying phenolic resin penetration to the surface, its main role is to cover the color spots on the surface of the substrate, therefore, requires good covering power. The above three papers are dipped in melamine resin respectively.

The bottom layer of paper: is the base material of the decorative board, playing a role in the mechanical properties of the board surface, is dipped in phenolic resin glue by drying and become, production can be determined according to the use or decorative board thickness of a number of layers.

Introduction to plywood kitchen cabinets

Plywood is commonly known as plywood, fine core board, is the earliest use in the decoration industry of a man-made panels, plywood is coated with glue after the wood segment rotary cut veneer according to the direction of the wood grain staggered into the slab, in the heating or non-heating conditions perpendicular pressed from each other, the classification of plywood is based on the size of its thickness, generally divided into 3 percent board, 5 percent board, 9 percent board, 12 percent board, 15 percent board and 18 percent board The six specifications are 3, 5, 9, 12, 15 and 18 percent plywood. Plywood is an important way to save wood as it does not produce sawdust in the production process and can make reasonable and effective use of log resources and improve the utilization rate of natural wood.

Plywood has a light weight, good bending resistance, easy transportation and construction, beautiful texture, which makes up for the defects of some naturally occurring wood and has good decorative properties. In some structural parts that need to be load-bearing, using fine core board will be stronger.

Boiled plywood has strong weather resistance, high temperature resistance and durability. It can be used in airplanes, ships, trains, automobiles, home improvement, construction and containers where the panels are needed. The surface of plywood is not as neat and smooth as density board and solid wood board, so it is not suitable for single-sided parts, such as cabinet door surface, window sash, etc.

Plywood that has not been fully dried may have substandard quality, production processes and other problems, resulting in serious deformation in use, and it is difficult for external forces to adjust it.

There is also a kind of plywood, is the use of plywood as the base, in its surface paste on the fire board, aluminum and other decorative materials, this type of plywood structure is not as strong as the ordinary density board.
