We now offer 'high gloss melamine edgebanding'. This product comes in both pre-glued rolls and without glue rolls. It is also possible to have protection foil on top of it for without glue rolls.

We developed this product because we want to help the small carpenters who can use pre-glued edgebanding at their own ease or without going through an edgebander facility.

What is the advantage of pre-glued melamine edgebanding compared to pre-glued plastic edgebanding?

Workability: Plastic is simply not so resistant to direct heat; rather, melamine is a specially meant to have much more resistant to direct heat.

Cost: Glossy melamine edgebanding will cost less than plastic.

Gloss level: The gloss level of plastic edgebanding will be better for sure. But the melamine will also produce a satisfactory result.

If applied correctly with an iron, this product will produce better result compared to pre-glued plastic edgebanding for adhesion to the edges.
