Applied as a low pH colloid, primarily in acid papermaking systems, MF resins can provide a much higher level of wet strength than any other technology in the market, demonstrated at 60%, or greater, wet-over-dry tensile in the most demanding applications.

 

Melamines also impart caustic resistance and stiffness to paper and can be used as coating crosslinkers for a variety of coating systems.
