Attaching to Melamine

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of making a bed riser for a friend. This is like the RV style, with a lift portion for storage. I am building a 1 x 4 frame, and have 1/4" melamine panel to attach to the frame. I was planning on using PL Premium and some small finishing nails to hold the melamine panels to the framework. Will the PL Premium adhere to the melamine?

My guess is that the construction adhesive will work, but you may want to rough up the edge of the melamine to help with the adhesion.

FWIW, Titebond makes a special glue for melamine

Thanks for the suggestions. I roughed it up and used the PL Premium, and then pin nails to hold it until setup. I used my laminate roller to seat the glue. seems like it will hold good enough.

I will get some of the Titebond Melamine glue to have in the shop for future use.

Thanks again. This forum is awesome by the way.
