The conditions of addition of some selected oxiranes (ethylene oxide, propylene oxide, epichlorohydrine) to a mix­ture of hydroxymethylmelamines obtained in the reaction of melamine with formaldehyde have been determined. In dependence on the oxirane used and molar ratio of rea­gents products of different properties have been obtained, namely crosslinked polymers or soluble polymers sui­table for the synthesis of thermally stable polyurethane foams. It has been found that addition reaction Is accom­panied by a side reaction of hydroxymethyl groups con­densation.
