Whiteboards - An Invaluable Tool for Your Home or Office
Whiteboards, also known as dry erase boards, can be an invaluable tool for your home or office. Boards Direct stock many types of whiteboards with the most common type of being melamine. Melamine is a white resin based paper that is fused over pressed board to form the writing surface. This is the most inexpensive form and is offered in almost any office supply store.
You can also buy whiteboards in glass and magnetic glass. This type is a bit harder to find, but many users say it offers great advantages. The surface is finished with quartz, and will not permanently absorb ink, thus eliminating the problem of "ghosting". White glass ones are also very projector friendly.
Many white boards are made of laminate, a type of white surface that is very stain resistant because it is non-porous. Laminate was only developed for use in white boards in the last decade, so it's a fairly new innovation.
When you buy a laminate board it usually comes with a lifetime guarantee against surface staining, essential to keep it white and clean.
