Common Questions About Adhesives for Edgebanding

Edgebanding refers to both the process and the stip of material used for creating aesthetically pleasing trim around unfinished edges of plywood, particle board or MDF. It's easy to spot edge banding all around you, from the desks and tables at your work to the cabinetry and counterops in your kitchen. Edge banding increases durability of these constructions, giving them a high-end, quality appearance. 

Edgebanding is made from various types of materials, including: 

  • PVC
  • ABS
  • Acrylic
  • Wood
  • Wood veneer

High-volume, industrial manufacturers apply edge banding to the substrate with an automated process that uses a hot melt adhesive. Two types of machines are typically seen; machines equipped with roller applicators and those that come with spray nozzle applicators. The process involves bonding the edge banding to the substrate, trimming all overlapping edges so that they are flush to the substrate, scrapping excess material, and buffing the finished edge.
