What is Thermofused Melamine (TFM)?
TFM panels take engineered wood substrates one step further, turning particleboard into a finished decorative panel by thermally fusing a durable decorative surface to each face.
Thermofused melamine (TFM) is a high-value, decorative surface panel. TFM panels begins at the core and then undergo a process of thermally fusing (no gluing necessary!) a decorative paper printed with high-resolution woodgrains, abstract designs or solid colors to either one of both surfaces of the panel. The papers are treated with a melamine resin that, under heat and pressure, actually become part of the panel itself – thus the term “thermofused” melamine.
TFM is used in conjunction with complementary products to produce commercial millwork, office and healthcare furniture, retail displays, residential furniture, kitchen & bathroom cabinetry, closet organizers, and wall panelling…anywhere a decorative, durable, economical, easy-to-maintain surface is needed.
