Melamine Fiber Properties | Manufacturing of Melamine Fiber | Applications of Melamine : Melamine fiber is a man-made or synthetic fiber during which the fiber-forming material is a synthetic polymer. Which is composed of a minimum of fifty percent  by weight of a cross-linked melamine polymer.. Melamine fibers are flame resistant, have exceptional heat/dimensional stability, and are self-extinguishing. EFT’s WF series of melamine fibers have a fiber length distribution that is custom-made to be used in wet-laid non woven. Characteristic fiber lengths are within the 1-12mm range, and that they show excellent dispersion and formation in wet-laid processes.

Characteristics of Melamine Fiber

  1. Low thermal conductivity.
  2. Chars without shrinking.
  3. White and dye able.
  4. High heat dimensional stability.
  5. Process able on standard textile equipment.
  6. Flame resistance and low thermal conductivity.
  7. Non-toxic / No VOC release.
  8. Naturally flame retardant.

Production Process of Melamine Fiber:

The production process is branded. It’s supported a singular melamine chemistry that ends up in a cross-linked, non-thermoplastic polymer of melamine units combined by methylene and dimethylene ether linkages. Within the polymerization reaction, methylol derivatives of melamine react with one another to create a three-dimensional structure. This structure is that the basis for the fiber’s heat stability, solvent resistance, and flame resistance.
