Melamine are synthetic fibers in which the fiber-forming substance is a synthetic polymer composed of at least 50% by weight of a cross-linked melamine polymer.
Melamine fibers have excellent flame resistance and heat stability, and a low thermal conductivity. They can be processed with standard textile equipment and are sometimes blended with commodity fibers and other heat resistant fibers.
