:Chris ... is that material from a HI store ?

Yes, Menards. It comes in widths up to 23 1/4".

It is melamine, though. But that brings up a good point. Melamine coated particle board can vary in how it is produced whether it be thermofused or sprayed on or whatever other techniques there are.

If one wants the most durable melamine they should probably go to a counter or cabinet specialty shop. The prices are quite a bit higher but the durability is a lot higher.

But I only use it for racks and always put down a layer of contact paper so this is a non-issue for me.
