Melamine formaldehyde-based composites have been preferred in many sectors. Various reinforcing materials are used to improve the physical and chemical properties of these composites. To lighten melamine formaldehyde-based composites, low-density organic and inorganic industrial wastes are reinforced. Inorganic factory wastes are used to increase the hardness of the composites. Besides, mineral fillers are preferred to improve the thermophysical properties of composites. In industrial applications, many modification processes have been carried out to develop both the physical and chemical properties of such composites. For composites, importance is given to optimum mechanical strength, nonflammability, surface morphology, pore structure, and distribution. Depending on the intended use of composites, the desired properties may differ in each sector. For example, there are prominent standards in every sector such as home appliances, furniture, automotive, construction, electronics, and decoration. In these standards, it is desirable to have optimum properties such as mechanical strength, hardness, density, thermal conductivity, non-flammability, and thermal stability. Therefore, these standards can be achieved by applying appropriate reinforcements and modification processes to improve the properties of melamine formaldehyde-based composites.
