    Default Looking for supplier of single sided melamine sheets

    Hi All,

    I am about to make my first set of vanity's (x2) and i have been told to use sheets of single sided melamine.

    The melamine will go on the inside of the doors/carcass and i'll be spraying the outside in a two pack finish.

    Can anyone tell me of a supplier in Melbourne preferable in the northern suburbs of these single sided sheets?

    Can anyone tell me if they are MDF or partical board? Also are these only suitable for single peice doors, or can i use them to make rail/style paneled doors as well (my prefered type of door)?



    Thanks

    Single side melamine is usually used for vacuum form doors and has a slightly curved face.
    This is so it will straighten when the raw face routered and foiled..

    The product that is normally used for painting is called paintcote, white on both sides, satin finish, ready to accept paint, like a primed surface

    I agree, for all the 2 pac painted doors i do most of the time they are out of a product call white satin select, the grade of the mdf is harder so that on the routed moulds don't come up so furry. If you had the patients you could use it to make rail and style doors but it would be much easier to get a mould routed through it.

    Azza, I picked up a couple of sheets of stuff you've recommended and it worked a treat, I sprayed the 2 pac in pretty poor conditions just to make a test piece and i was very suprised at how good it came out.

    Just curious, is it possible to rub out the odd spec or 2 of dust etc ?


    Thanks

    you will probably have to buff the dust out and give it another coat. I haven't had too much experience at applying 2 pac, we send all our doors to a furniture painter to do all our doors because the workshop is too dusty for 2 pac.
