  • Band-It melamine question

    I'm looking to cheat a bit on a finishing job and was wondering about the construction of the white melamine. Is it just white on the surface or is white all the way through the material thickness. I would use black but I'll be painting over this in places so a light background will make things easier. Thanks for any info.

    Not sure if you are talking about the sheets or the edging. The sheets are particle board with a thin layer on the surface and chips very easy when cutting. Mostly on the bottom side. The edging material that I have used is solid color all the way through.

      Re: OT...

      Congratulations, Shawn, on your team the Celtics winning it all. They played extremely well across the board and deserved the crown. But, as a Lakers fan, I have to say, WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR!

        Yeah, this year was kind to the Celts. Especially when compared to last year's mess. We'll see next year if either the Celtics or the Lakers can make the long run again.

          Hi, Shawn.

          If you are referring to the black or white melamine shelving sections typically sold at Lowe's or Home Depot, in 2 ft wide sections in various lengths, it is veneered particle board.

          It is not white through the center, nor black, in the case of black melamine, as it is commonly known.

          Regards,
          Eric
