Melamine Dinnerware

Melamine dinner sets which have different designs and colors you can choose from are economical. Thunder Group, Inc. is a leading distributor of melamine dinnerware and offers a wide variety to fit your needs. Carlisle is another big manufacturer of melamine dinner plates and bowls.

Melamine is a non-toxic material that is durable, odourless, break-resistant and heat-resistant making it a popular choice for the foodservice industry. It is Stain, Break and Chip Resistant and light in weight. It is 100% dishwasher safe. Melamine dinnerware has been there for a long time. It is stable and inert, and it is safe to use in restaurants as long as it isn't overheated, as in a microwave or on a stove. It should never be used in the oven. Melamine breaks down under heating. The resin decomposes and can (does) pose a health risk if ingested. There is no problem if it isn't "baked" to significant colour change.

Thunder Group and Carlisle Melamine Dinnerware is the right choice for the facility buying good quality dinnerware on a budget!
