Melamine Faced Chipboard (MFC)


Eurodekor Melamine Faced Chipboard (MFC) is made by permanently fusing resin-impregnated decor paper on both sides of our Eurospan Particleboard substrate. Heat and pressure activate the resin, effectively sealing the paper to the substrate and preventing it from peeling away.

EGGER Laminates are among the most durable, long-lasting, and versatile decorative surface materials available. They are ideal for high-traffic horizontal and curved applications due to their fade resistance. Due to our EGGER  standard laminates being postformable, they are ideal for countertops.

Our laminates are multi-layered in construction. High pressure and heat are used to fuse melamine resin-impregnated decorative surface paper with multiple core layers of phenolic resin-impregnated kraft paper, a balancer paper, and a wear-resistant top layer. During the finishing process, laminates must be bonded to a substrate such as particleboard or MDF.

Laminates are ideal for a variety of residential and commercial applications, such as:


  • Tabletops and desktops
  • Countertops and backsplash panels
  • Cabinets
  • Door Elements and wall claddings
