Edge Banding or Edgebanding can be made of different materials (PVC, ABS, acrylic, melamine, wood or wood veneer). It is used in carpentry and furniture-making. Edge banding is used to cover the exposed sides of materials such as plywood, particle board or MDF, giving the appearance of a solid (or more valuable) material. Edgebanding can also be used instead of features such as face frames or molding. Edge bandings typically come with a primer, which acts like a bonding agent between the adhesive and the substrate. Thicker edgebanding requires a slight concavity to provide a tight glue line. Edgebanding can be applied to the substrate by using hot melt adhesives. An edgebander bonds the edgebanding to the substrate, trims leading and trailing edge, trims top and bottom flush, scraps any surplus and buffs the edge.
The main reason for manufacturing of Edge Bandings is to make the boards more resistant against environmental conditions like temperature, humidity, even vermin that each day, cause so much damages to boards of this kind. Though nowadays beauty and fancy of these boards are more emphasized than its durability and resistance. So different types of Edge Bandings with different patterns and colours are being presented to this industry. The defects in different types of Edge Bandings has also resulted PVC Edge Bandings to evolve and develop.
