Imitation porcelain melamine tableware is widely used
The reporter visited a number of restaurants and found that melamine tableware was widely used. In a Japanese restaurant, the reporter saw a set of dishes with the words "MelamineWare" on the bottom. The Chinese meaning of melamine is melamine. In this group of English, "notformicrowave" is also marked, which cannot be used in microwave ovens. In another Hong Kong-style restaurant, cups and teas are all melamine tableware. In a local restaurant chain, the clerk said that in addition to some ceramic tableware, other tableware is a porcelain melamine tableware.
In addition, melamine tableware is widely used in hotels, snack stalls, unit canteens, large, medium, primary, kindergarten and household tableware.
“When I buy melamine tableware, I will definitely choose a branded product in the big supermarket.” Chen Xin, an associate professor and doctoral tutor at the Department of Polymer Science at Fudan University, said that using melamine as a raw material to produce melamine tableware is a mature Process, although melamine is considered to be slightly toxic, after being polymerized with other materials, the resulting product is a polymer material whose physical and chemical properties are different from those of small molecule melamine and do not contain toxicity. However, melamine may also occur during production and use, and whether melamine will occur depends entirely on the production process, and melamine will remain in the inferior melamine tableware produced by the unqualified process. In addition, it is worth noting that melamine tableware is also prone to release melamine molecules in high temperature conditions, so melamine tableware is generally not suitable for high temperature cooking or for microwave cooking.
