As a chemical raw material, it is used to synthesize melamine resin. It is an important heat fixing plastic, and also an important raw material in the paint industry. It is used for corrosion resistance of advanced panel, and it is flame retardant.
Melamine is almost tasteless, slightly soluble in water, soluble in methanol, formaldehyde, acetic acid, hot glycol, glycerin, pyridine, etc., but insoluble in acetone and ether. It is harmful to the body, and can not be used in food processing or food additives.
It is mainly used as an organic synthetic monomer. Melamine resin is made by melamine and formaldehyde. It is an important heat fixing plastic and also an important raw material in the paint industry. It is also used to prepare the crosslinking agent for anti folding and anti shrinking of textiles, metal coating, leather tanning agent, adhesive and waterproof agent. As a chemical reagent, it is used as a standard reagent for the determination of nitrogen in organic microanalysis.
