Melamine formaldehyde resins modified by reacting with butanol. Butylated melamine formaldehyde resins are widely used because of their compatibility and high film quality due to their comparably low surface tension. However, they are not used in high solid systems because of their high molecular weights.
Monomeric melamine formaldeyde subjected to complete etherification with methanol. Its low molecular weight and solubility in both water and organic solvents enables its usage as high solid content coating input. Because it is completely etherified, acid catalysts need to be added to the coating formulations in order to enhance the reaction tendency, which is lower compared to butylated melamine formaldehyde resins.
Symmetrical triazine compound synthesized by heating up urea in the presence of ammonia. It is primarily used in the production of melamine formaldehyde resins.
Chemical Name: 1,35,-Triamino-s-2,4,6-triazine

Melting Point: 354°C
Polymerization products of melamine and formaldehyde. They are the most common cross linkers in baking systems. Melamine formaldehyde resins are modified with various alcohols to increase solubility in paint solvents and compatibility with polymers.
