What is melamine crystal?
Melamine crystal is a white powder with the chemical formula C3H6N6. This material, also known as melamine, is an organic compound with an ammonia-like odor that is actually a cyanamide trimmer.
Melamine crystals are used in the production of plastics, dyes, fertilizers and fabrics. 67% of this materials such as cyanamide are composed of nitrogen and its derivatives have fire extinguishing properties due to the release of nitrogen gas during burning or semi-combustion.
This chemical compound is the most valuable and advanced nitrogen chain product that is typically processed as a resin. This material is alkaline, hair dissolves partially in cold water, is insoluble in many organic solvents and does not explode.
This material is used in the production of urea and ammonia fertilizers, switch and socket production, aircraft industry, MDF sheets as well as decorative industries.
Melamine crystals are commercially produced from the reaction of urea and cyanic acid. Melamine combines with formaldehyde to form melanin resin, a highly heat-resistant plastic, as well as melanin foam and polymeric cleaners.
Other commercial products contain melanin, including tablecloths, cleaners, cloths, adhesives, appliances, and flame extinguishers.
The chemical is also used in arsenic-containing drugs, including melarsoprol, which is prescribed to treat African trypanosomes.
Melamine crystal is used in high performance products such as wood-based panels, laminates, veneers and molding powders. This material is used in the wood industry for transparency, beauty and increase the resistance of wood surfaces to heat.
