The premium brand in white melamine faced medium density fibreboard (MDF), SupaLam®, uses a SupaWood® substrate.
How it’s made
Melamine-impregnated, white décor-paper is bonded to the surface of the board using heat and pressure. This durable, scratch and moisture resistant surface is ideal for medium duty vertical and light horizontal applications, such as door frontals, drawers, carcasses and shelving.
Using SupaLam® Super White
SupaLam® is available in a double or single face option. Single face has only one face upgraded with melamine-impregnated décor paper. The other face is supplied raw (or exposed) to allow the upgrader to add a surface finish of their choice, such as PVC or acrylic wrap or spray painting. The chosen surface must be compatible and balanced with the reverse side of the board to prevent a permanent imbalance being engineered into the final product, which could result in bowing or cupping. Always prototype the process and final product first.
Perfect for kitchens and built-in-cupboards, remember the board’s exposed edges must be properly edged using a suitable glue and edging material to give the board the best possible protection in areas where there is a chance of it being exposed to moisture.
