How does melamine hold up to liquids and chemicals?
The melamine surface is very scratch resistant and chemical resistant so it will hold up to liquids (water and household chemicals) very well. If spilled liquids are not removed and find their way into unprotected areas without the melamine finish (such as unfinished edges) the material can swell like any wood product.
Our melamine is unique because it is the only melamine with InCopper™ Antimicrobial Technology, that protects the surface against fungi and mold that can cause stains and odor. This technology is ideal for interiors where humid conditions are likely to expose the surface of the panel to harmful microbes.
