Un panneau de meuble est un matériau en feuille "prêt à l'emploi" dont le dessus et le dessous sont recouverts d'une couche de mélamine. Une couche de mélamine ou une couche supérieure mélaminée est une fine couche de plastique pressée. Les panneaux pour meubles, également connus sous le nom de panneaux pour meubles, n'ont donc pas besoin d'être finis. Ce matériau de panneau est donc très populaire dans la construction intérieure. Ils sont idéaux pour les meubles, les étagères ou pour remplacer vos anciennes portes de cuisine.

Nos matériaux de panneaux décoratifs sont dotés d'une couche de mélamine (plastique) solide et dure. Cela donne aux panneaux un aspect attrayant et rend ce matériau de panneau capable de résister à une manipulation brutale. Comme il est d'usage de fabriquer des panneaux pour meubles à partir de panneaux de fibres, il s'agit d'un produit non seulement pratique, mais aussi durable. En effet, les panneaux de fibres sont constitués de copeaux de bois compressés, qui sont des déchets.
Que sont les panneaux pour meubles ?
Le panneau pour meubles est un terme collectif désignant un matériau en feuille composé d'une base (ou support) terminée par une ou deux couches supérieures. L'âme, également appelée couche intermédiaire, peut être constituée de différents matériaux. La couche supérieure garantit un aspect unique, un produit durable et/ou de meilleures propriétés du matériau fini. Pour la base d'un panneau de meuble, on utilise souvent du bois de moindre qualité visuelle, afin de compenser la rareté du bois véritable. Cela ne signifie pas que la planche est de moindre qualité, mais seulement que le bois d'une autre couleur, par exemple, est ajouté au milieu. Cela présente plusieurs avantages : le matériau reste abordable et les déchets sont réduits.

When looking for finished board material, you generally end up in two categories: melaminated board material and veneered board material. As a substrate, or base, MDF, chipboard or another strong fibreboard is often chosen. The difference between these carriers is generally minimal. Are you looking for a specific texture, or colour? Then go for your favourite top layer and don't let the material's carrier influence you.
Because of the texture in the top layer, furniture panels are ideally suited for decorative purposes: it combines the strong properties of the substrate with a top layer of your choice. This is why furniture panels are also known as 'decorative chipboard' or 'decorative panels'. Decorative chipboard, also known as furniture panel, is an easy-to-assemble board material with a chipboard core finished on one or both sides with a melamine top layer.
Melaminated board material
The advantage of melaminated board material over veneered material is that it is immediately ready for use: there is no need to finish it! This makes the product ideal for use. A melamine top layer is made of paper fibres fused together with a melamine resin. This creates a hard plastic top layer. This top layer is applied to the backing. A melamine top layer has a high density, which also gives it its hard and strong properties. A melamine top layer is water-repellent and to some extent heat-resistant. In addition, this board material is easy to wipe off and keeps well clean. The material is therefore often chosen for use in interiors.
Melaminated chipboard is available in various colours, textures, sizes and thicknesses. The material and pattern is often computer-generated, which is why melamine-faced board material does not vary in colour. There is always the same look, with a fixed colour scheme. Techniques are now very advanced, making the plastic wood look more and more like real wood and the big advantage: no protective coating needs to be applied. Melaminated material is a relatively new technique within the wood world compared to, for example, veneered board material. With our professional saws, we ensure that the board material is accurately cut to size and immediately ready for use. Order ready-to-use board material cut to size easily online. This way, you only have to assemble the panel material.
When you cut melamine-laminated board material to size, you will see that only the top and bottom sides have the top layer of melamine. On the sides, you will see the carrier material (often chipboard or MDF). To finish these sides nicely, there is ABS tape. This is available in the same colour and texture as the top layer, to create a nice whole after finishing the edges.
When you start processing melaminated material yourself, the top layer may splinter. This is because it is a very thin and hard layer. Have your melamine material professionally cut to size by us and there will be much less chance of the top layer splintering!
In brief, the advantages of melamine faced board material once again:
- Ready to use immediately
- Strong and water-repellent
- Fixed colour
Chipboard, MDF or solid furniture panels?
Furniture panels can have different carriers. The technical specifications depend on the carrier. But which is the right choice? We explain the advantages of each material.
Chipboard is one of the most popular materials when it comes to melamine-coated decorative panels. You could almost say it is the standard panel material to which a melamine top layer is applied. That is why it is also known as 'decorative chipboard'. Chipboard has a number of important properties:
- It is ecologically a sustainable choice
- It is relatively cheap
- It is a light a versatile material
- It is easy to saw and screw.
The combination of these reasons means that in many cases, particleboard is chosen for melaminated board material. We use high-quality chipboard, but the material remains compressed chips, which makes it ultimately less strong than, for example, MDF.
We are all familiar with the properties of MDF: a compressed fibreboard. As with chipboard, the quality of the MDF depends on the pressing pressure and pressing time. We only cut high-quality MDF. Whereas chipboard used to be the standard backing for melaminated furniture panels, MDF is gaining ground due to its strong, stable and high-quality properties. Due to its homogeneous structure, it is less likely to blunt your sawing and drilling equipment and is easy to assemble. Are you looking for veneered material? Then the standard carrier is MDF or, traditionally, solid panels. Because veneers are more fragile than melaminated material, MDF is always chosen as the carrier for these top layers.
Are you looking for furniture panels with a wooden look? Then you may also end up with solid panels. Or solid panels with a veneer top layer. In the wood industry, solid is often used as a catch-all term. A truly solid panel, consisting of a single piece, is very expensive. In addition, there is scarcity in the industry, so new wooden panels are assembled in a creative way. This keeps the material affordable, accessible and creates the same look and feel as a solid panel. Wood panels with a solid core are one of the oldest types of veneer panels. Wooden slats are used for the core and the top layer is then finished with a veneer. The quality and price strongly depend on the visual quality of the veneer, the thickness of the top layer and, whether it is one- or two-sided finished.
The properties of decorative furniture panels
Above, you were able to read about the difference between melaminated and solid boards. The different types of supports have also been covered. But besides these properties, there are also some practical properties that can apply to your DIY projects.
Standard furniture panels
The most common variant of available furniture panels is with a panneau d'aggloméré or MDF backing. Curious about the properties of that panel material? Our tip: Then read more about the properties of the carrier. That way, you can quickly find out whether the board material is suitable for your next DIY project.
Furniture panels with Water-resistant properties
If you see the type V313 or the term Water-resistant passing by the product, then the core of the carrier is Water-resistant. The gluing, pressing pressure and pressing time of the composition of fibreboards add extra Water-resistant properties to the board material. However, always bear in mind that the top layer is not necessarily Water-resistant. Curious about the properties? Check out the properties of MDF résistant à l'humidité or panneau d'aggloméré résistant à l'humidité.
Panels with propriétés ignifuges can also be finished with a melaminated or veneered top layer. However, this variant is a lot scarcer than standard or moisture-resistant furniture panels. Check out the possibilities in our webshop!

Furniture panels as an interior application
Melaminated or decorative chipboard is widely used for making furniture. It is a versatile product that can be used for many purposes. Think of desk tops, cupboards, kitchen, bookcases or shelves. Furniture often has a large surface area and therefore takes a long time to finish. By using melamine-coated board material, you no longer need to paint the board material and you ensure that everything looks smooth. With the various decors and textures available, there is a suitable sheet material for every job.
