MFC(Melamine faced chipboard) or Woodgrain Effect Information

One of the main components in furniture production is melamine faced chipboard. It's produced based on chipboard faced with special laminate materials.

There are some ways of chipboard facing:

  • Paper-tarred films facing.
  • Paper-laminated plastic facing.
  • Polymer film facing.
  • Organic veneer sheet facing.
  • Facing with paint, varnish, phenolformaldehyde resin etc.

The surface of melamine faced chipboard may be smooth or imitate the relief of wood grain or pearl. There is a variety of colors and textures. Melamine faced chipboard is extremely resistant to high temperature and household chemical goods. It is used as a decorative product for furniture and interior applications.

MFC products rely on a resin impregnated decorative paper, either plain coloured or printed, to achieve the required colour or pattern.

Melamine Faced products have the decorative papers directly pressed to the surfaces of a core material. Most commonly the core is either chipboard, resulting in the product known as MFC, or MDF, resulting in the product known as MFMDF.

Mirror Door Lacquer cleaning guide

  • To clean lacquer wall units and wardrobe doors, use only a damp cloth on lacquer doors, sides, and tabletops of all units.
  • Do not use any furniture polish or cleaners with ammonia base. Mica cleaner may be used on side panels and shelves only. Cleaning of mirror backs and mirror doors is also very important.
  • Cleaning solution should be mild, and should not contain ammonia, vinegar, bleach, or solvents.
  • Cleaning solutions should be sprayed on a clean cloth. Do not spray directly on mirror. Spraying directly on mirror can allow the cleaning solution to run down or behind the mirror and cause discoloration.
