Decorative paper, impregnated with melamine resin, is bonded to both surfaces of our top- quality BisonBord® using heat and pressure. During the pressing process the resin coating the paper flows and then cures to form a closed surface. This means no microscopic pores for germs to hide; it also makes the surface that much easier to clean with a simple wipe, using a well rung out damp cloth.
The cured melamine surface provides a durable finish that is scratch and moisture resistant. To finish the job, the edges of the cut MelaWood® panels must be properly sealed, using a suitable glue and edge banding material. This is to give each panel the best possible protection against exposure to moisture.
As a further benefit, a special anti-bacterial additive is blended into our locally manufactured melamine resin, helping destroy bacteria within hours, that may come to rest on the surface. This makes MelaWood® the perfect solution for hygiene-sensitive, high-traffic areas where cleanliness alone is insufficient, such as healthcare facilities, office spaces, schools, restaurants, retail and even at home.
MelaWood® is perfect for your home and working areas – kitchens, bedrooms, lounges, offices, hospitality, healthcare and retail.
It is ideal for medium duty vertical and light horizontal applications, such as freestanding and built-in cupboards, door and drawer frontals, carcasses and shelving, wall cladding and interior building elements.
We offer MelaWood® in a wide range of designs in combination with our various finishes to suit every application and design.
To make your choice a little easier we recommend the surface finish we think best showcases each design. Contact your stockist if you have a particular request outside of these recommendations.

- Fusion - a natural, veneer look
- Linear - a strong textured, straight wood grain
