The primary application for melamine is in decorative and protective laminates used to manufacture furniture, flooring and fiberboard. Nearly 50 percent of the melamine produced today is used for construction materials such as HPL (High Pressure Laminate) used for countertops or LPL (Low Pressure Laminate) used for laminate flooring, ready-to-assemble furniture and whiteboards found in nearly every office and conference room. Melamine enables manufacturers of these products to create hard, highly durable, glossy, long-wearing surfaces.
