Wood-grain paper belongs to the classification of Polaroid paper in decorative paper, and it is a decorative paper with the weakest abrasion resistance. In view of the requirements of surface plasticity and environmental protection, mainly formaldehyde-free requirements, the wood grain paper industry has developed a new process, which is different from using melamine resin to dip coating and then hot pressing. Then coat water-based polyurethane resin on the surface to protect against scratches and make up for the lack of wear resistance; after water-based polyurethane resin is coated on the surface of the paper, the paper can also be wrapped and curled, and its plasticity will be better than the previous one. .
