What Is High Gloss Melamine Board?
A Melamine Panel is the same material as a particleboard or MDF, but with a coloured Melamine surface coated on both sides, giving the product a sleek and pre-finished look. The smooth, hard-wearing surface of Melamine boards makes it suitable for a variety of uses.
