Edging Towards Perfection: Achieve Seamless Edges with a Precise Finish

2 November 2023

Did you know, that KDM Group have a specialised in-house manufacturing facility with cutting-edge equipment, including a tailor-made spray booth, enabling us to produce custom-made products of the utmost quality to meet our client’s needs? Our expertise lies within various timber manufacturing techniques, from bonding decorative HPL laminates to real wood veneer and solid surface fabrication.

We are introducing a monthly blog to give an insight into some of the machinery and manufacturing capabilities we cater for. This month we take a deep dive into Edge Banding.

What is Edge Banding? Edge banding is used in woodworking and furniture manufacturing to seal the exposed edges of wood-based panels, such as Cut-to-size Plywood, MDF, or particleboard. The process involves applying a thin strip of material, typically made of PVC, ABS, wood veneer, or melamine, to cover the exposed edge of the panel. This banding strip is bonded to the panel’s edge with adhesive, creating a durable and aesthetically pleasing edge finish. The edge banding material is available in various sizes, colours, and finishes, making it easy to match the panel’s surface and achieve a seamless finish.

Expert Edge Banding with Specialised Biesse Equipment

Here at KDM, we use specialised Biesse equipment for all our edge banding services to ensure we deliver perfect edges every time. Our machinery is designed to provide precise and consistent edge banding, producing high-quality results for all our clients.

We offer PUR water-resistant edge banding for panels used in moist environments, ensuring added durability for your project. Expert edge banding techniques are crucial in achieving a seamless and durable finish. Our experienced team can help you choose the right edge banding material to match your design specifications and project requirements. Another essential factor in edge banding is the application technique. The application process involves heating the material to a specific temperature and pressing it firmly against the board’s edge. The process requires precision and skill to ensure the banding adheres correctly and doesn’t peel off over time.

Protect Your Wood-Based Panels with Our PUR Edge Banding

Our PUR (Polyurethane Reactive) water-resistant edge banding is a type of edge banding material with superior water-resistant properties. This edge banding is made from a combination of polyurethane and other chemicals, forming a strong, durable, and water-resistant bond with the panel’s edge. Our PUR edge banding is especially useful in environments with water or moisture, such as kitchens, bathrooms, or other damp areas. It is also resistant to heat and chemicals, making it ideal for high-traffic areas. Cut and Edge’s PUR water-resistant edge banding is available in various colours and finishes, allowing for a seamless and aesthetically pleasing finish on Wood Sheets and panels.What sets KDM apart is our dedication to providing high-quality edge banding services tailored to your specific needs.
