Melaminenoun

(chemistry) A strong aromatic heterocyclic base, tri-amino-triazine, used in combination with formaldehyde to manufacture melamine resins such as Formica.

Laminateverb

To assemble from thin sheets glued together.

Melaminenoun

A nitrogenous strongly basic chemical substance (C3H6N6), structurally 2,4,6-triamino-1,3,5-triazine, produced from several cyanogen compounds, and obtained as a white crystalline substance; - formerly supposed to be produced by the decomposition of melam. Called also cyanuramide. It is used as one of the starting components (together with formaldehyde) in the preparation of melamine resins, including the commercially marketed Formica (TM). It is solid at room temperature, and sublimes at temperatures approaching 250° C, decomposing at 345° C. Density 1.573.

Laminateverb

To cover something flat, usually paper, in adhesive protective plastic.

Melaminenoun

a white crystalline organic base; used mainly in making melamine resins

Laminateverb

To form, as metal, into a thin plate, as by rolling.

Melamine

Melamine (listen) is an organic compound with the formula C3H6N6. This white solid is a trimer of cyanamide, with a 1,3,5-triazine skeleton.
