When was melamine invented?                  

Melamine was first synthesized by the German chemist Justus von Liebig in 1834. In early production, first of all, calcium cyanamide was converted into dicyandiamide, which was heated above its melting temperature to produce melamine. Melamine has been used to put into production since the manufacturing of plastic household items began in the late 1930s.


Will melamine break?      

Melamine is extremely difficult to break, melamine dishes will bounce, as opposed to breaking like traditional ceramic dinnerware. When it dropped, it would not break like typical china or porcelain. Melamine dinnerware has a much lower replacement rate than typical china and porcelain due to its durable construction. It will save your business a lot of money in the long run.
