Pre-glued Melamine Edgebanding

pre-glued-intro

We believe in flexibility and providing the right service to our customers. Our goal has always been to supply a complete solution to our customers. Therefore, we can supply products to the big manufacturer which has a machine running at speed of 30 mt/minute or a small shop that makes edging process with a simple iron.

With this in mind, we can supply pre-glued (known as 'Iron-on') melamine edgebanding for all our colors and designs based on the demand.

On the back side of the edgebanding, hot melt glue is applied at the right quantity. The hot melt is special glue which is activated with heat.

With a standard iron or a hot air blower, the carpenter can apply the edging with ease at a speed of his/her choice. Pre-glued melamine edgebanding makes it easy for small size carpenter to use edgebanding in their shops without having to invest into big machineries.

    Melamine Edgebanding Comparison

    We DARE you to take action by completing the following tests!

    The folder you have received contains melamine edgebanding samples from TECE. We recommend that you test these samples against the edgebanding you are currently buying. The purpose of this brochure is to demonstrate to you the high quality of TECE products compared with other suppliers.

    The tests on the following pages require sharp observation skills and basic tools such as an iron and a glass of water.

    Test 1 | Surface Quality

    Hold the A4-size sample and the product (you are currently using) toward the light as shown in the photo. Checking both samples at the same time will help you check the surface quality of both pieces. Compare the following:

    Which product has a superior and more homogeneous surface?
    Which product has better and sharper designs?

    Test 2 | Scratching

    Take our sample and try to scratch the product with the wooden stick as shown in the photo. Do the same for the other product you are currently using. Check whether the coating shows any defects after being scratched.

    Test 3 | Moisture Resistance

    Take a glass of cold water, a small piece of TECE edgebanding and a product from another company. Dip the samples into the water and wait 20-30 seconds. Check which sample absorbs water and starts to turn into paper when exposed to moisture.
