FAQ – frequently asked questions about melamine faced boards

What are melamine faced boards?

Melamine faced boards are wood-based panels with melamine facing on both sides. This consists of a decorative paper layer, the decor paper, which is impregnated with synthetic resin and applied directly to the face of the board under heat and pressure. The facing can consist of multiple layers of paper for special qualities. In addition to the decor paper, transparent overlay papers and underlay papers can then be used.

As the manufacturer, Pfleiderer produces and tests its direct-faced boards according to the relevant European standards, EN 14322 and EN 14323. These define the product properties and test methods for melamine faced chipboards (MFC) and melamine faced MDF – as they are named in the standard.
