    Re: plastic and melamine

    Melamine is a type of plastic.

    We just say "plastic tray" without naming particular chemicals involved.

    PS

    Melamine was popular in design of the 50's-60's. The brand of plastic that was used to create iconic looking furniture and stuff was Formica. You might hear things like "Formica table" if you're into retro things.
