what kind of laminate is on top of the particle board

is the laminate on top of board sold separately
Asked by: nachomoose
Well, it's really not a laminate, it's called Melamine and it's a plastic or Formica. It is heat bonded to the particle board so it is not sold separately, it's always one piece.

Can you rip this sheet into 6 1/2"x8'

Asked by: Jeb
Hello Jeb, Thank you for your question. Yes this Melamine can be cut down to 6 1/2" strips. Keep in mind that it is particleboard so if you cut it to that narrow of a strip its not going to be as strong as a solid wood board would be.

Will screws hold in melamine?

I want to screw some 28 inch drawer slides into these melamine panels. Will the screws hold drawer slides with a drawer capable of holding 100 lbs? It looks to me like the wood is very soft. Please advise, thank you. PS: If you don't think melamine will hold, what do you suggest instead of these panels?
Asked by: leppard3
It appears that there are 2 grades of melamine. Unless the product is identified as "commercial" quality, most are very similar to particleboard. Particleboard will hold best when the predrilled hole matches the size and type of screws being used. Both the girth of the screw and the style of the screw must match the work intended as well as the direction of the stress applied to the joint. Most melemine should NEVER be used in damp environments. Example would be use of a dado joint vs a butt joint. If screws are used in melamine dado joints, the screw diameter usually needs to be smaller and the "end capping" material screw holes need to be larger than the hole in the material where the holding portion of the screw is being driven. This preventing break-away of the material holding the screwhead. Butt joints need bugle head screws, with drilled countersunk heads. Or a bit designed and adjusted to your screw length. In melamine I use screws 2" - 2.25" long. Now to give an answer to your question. Without knowing the material width, quality of the material and the direction of the pull on the material joint. Use dado joints when possible. Use end screws, glue, and Craig screws and joints for maximum holding power. 100 lbs is a lot of weight on any 3/4" joint. You need thicker, and/or a hardwood product if possible. Good luck.

Best way to cut a dado for a t-track

What would be the best way to cut a 3/4 dado for mounting a t-track for a router table top.
Asked by: Jayhawk714
2 methods using a router: 1. Use a clamped straight edge and a router bit of the exact size you need. 2. Make a dado jig for your router. Google "exact width dado jig" and you'll be inundated with options. Short term pain making the jig, but long term bonus for all sorts of projects later. Melamine and particle board are both tough on cutting tools. I highly recommend carbide tipped tools! Don't bother with a dado blade in a table saw as there will be far too much chip out.

Customer Reviews

Melamine White Panel (Common: 3/4 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft.; Actual: .750 in. x 49 in. x 97 in.) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for concrete forms We bought this to make concrete forms for our kitchen countertops and it worked very well. The concrete came right off of the inside (and outside) of the forms without any issues at all. We screwed the pieces together, lined the inside edges with silicone, filled with the concrete and voila!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stocking location 5 star product, however at my local store it is stocked in the millworks department on the floor. Anyone who works with full size sheet goods knows that they can be combersome to handle under the best circumstances. I pick through half a dozen sheets with broken corners and other blemishes on a weekly basis. This is most definitely caused by its terrible stocking location. With the product so low to the ground, and pallet racking over the top, customers must drag the sheets out causing the damage. HomeDepot please stock this with the rest of the sheet goods! You will have less wasted product and happy customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent materiel I have used this mel board for decades both black and white to make cabinets, desks, office counters, computer work centers, and shelving. I even used it in my kitchen as a temporary sink counter for four years until I could replace it with the real thing. It held up very well for being in a wet place but I don't recommend it for that. The desks and counters I made for commercial offices were heavily used and lasted for 15+ years until the warehouse was totally rebuilt. You can edge it with white edging tape or use solid hardwoods. You can also use vinyl Tee molding (commonly called "slap" molding. It is best cut, in my opinion, with 1/4" carbide tipped router bits. I am currently making a sewing room for my wife and I will use this materiel for a sturdy sewing table, extensions, and work area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great stuff I build reptile enclosures for a living and this is all I use because it is so easy to wipe down if something is spilled on it or an animal goes to the bathroom the only downside to this is that you must predrill all the holes which can be time consuming but it makes a enclosure look great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job! Needing a large panel to front a white garage work desk, I bought this 4x8 knowing there would be plenty left over. But I've found several ways to constructively use up the pieces, shelves etc. Good stuff.
