The History of Melamine

The inventor of melamine is Justus von Liebig (was born in 1803, Germany ).

He founded organic chemistry more than a hundred years ago, and melamine is one of his achievements.

The reason why he invented the organic compound melamine was actually first used to save people and was first used in fertilizers, so he also has a title called "Father of Fertilizer Industry".

All these achievements actually began with a change in 1816. That year, Mount Tambora erupted with unprecedented intensity. A large amount of volcanic ash caused a sharp drop in global temperature. There was no summer throughout the year and most of the food crops in the northern hemisphere were completely destroyed. The whole of Europe was enveloped by severe famine, which was called "the last and greatest survival crisis in the Western world."

Germany is one of the countries with the worst famine. Liebig was 13 years old that year. It was this experience that planted a seed in his young heart and made him aspire to make changes in agriculture and bring more people to it.

Until 1834, he accidentally synthesized a substance-melamine. Li Bixi just started to invent melamine, just want to use it as a fertilizer. After all, the nitrogen content of melamine is higher than that of urea, so it should be more suitable for nitrogen fertilizer, but it was not realized due to its too expensive and low absorption rate. After that, people kept trying to develop and use melamine.

  • The main use of melamine is as a raw material for the production of melamine formaldehyde resin (MF). Melamine can also be used as flame retardant, water reducer, formaldehyde cleaner, etc.
  • This resin has higher hardness than urea-formaldehyde resin, non-flammable, water resistance, heat resistance, aging resistance, arc resistance, chemical resistance, good insulation properties, gloss and mechanical strength, and is widely used in wood, plastics, coatings, papermaking, and textiles , Leather, electrical, pharmaceutical and other industries.

Melamine formaldehyde resin, commonly known as melamine resin, melamine was first obtained a synthetic patent in 1938 and began industrial production.

  • It was produced in Japan in 1951. The melamine plastic itself is colorless and transparent, non-toxic and tasteless, and has surface hardness, scratch-resistant, high surface gloss, bright color, can be used in an environment of 150 degrees, good toughness, not easy to break, so Japanese companies began to use tableware in 1960.
  • By 1967, it rapidly expanded to an annual output of 80,000 tons.
