Paintable PVC Edgebanding

paintable edgebanding

Many of high quality furniture are painted products. When a product is painted, it does not mean that they are made with real wood or another material. They are simply made with plain MDF or particle board, and then painted to the desired color.

In the modern world, companies must find ways to reduce the cost of production and make their products affordable.

For this reason, nowadays furniture producers use boards with the best possible surface finish or even with pre-finished surfaces. With this way, they can apply as little paint as possible to achieve the desired color.

How about the edge?

The surface of the board can be very smooth but the edge is always rough after cutting the panel. For this purpose, we are producing a special product called 'Paintable PVC edgebanding'. The polyurethane or UV based paint will adhere to this specially produced PVC edgebanding. In this way, the furniture producers does not have to apply as much paint or does not have to sand the edge of the panel as much.

In the below video, you can see some details.

    PVC Edgebanding Comparison Presentation

    We strongly urge you to go through this comparison presentation. In this site, you will be guided through simple tests which will eventually show you the quality of TECE PVC against your current supplier.

    We simply ask you to compare two samples against each other. Please be sure to follow each step carefully to verify the validity of each step.

    To obtain samples of Tece PVC, please get in touch with us.

    After finishing this presentation, you will have a better idea of quality standards of Tece PVC edging.

    Test 1 | Surface

    Hold our sample with your current supplier under the light (as shown in the photo). Evaluate the following points between two products:

    1. Printing quality
    2. The sharpness of design
    3. The smoothness of colors
    4. The smoothness of the surface
    The UV printing technology enabled us to produce designs that are superior and sharper than any other printing techniques.

    Test 2 | Solvent Test

    Furniture producers must clean the remainder of the glue on the edge after applying the edging to the panel. During this process, the surface of the PVC will be wiped along the corner with some sort of solvent. Thanks to our UV printing and lacquering system, our PVC edging has a high resistant to solvent; this ensures that the color or design would never change no matter what sort of solvent is used.

    Please wipe our PVC sample with the solvent provided; do the same test with your current PVC.

    Now compare which one is still look the same as original.

    Test 3 | Consistency in all thickness and panel

    We take pride in our printing process. On the paper with samples, you can compare our edging matched with panel. All thicknesses are also attached to the paper; 0.4, 0.8 and 2mm. Since we are capable of printing all thickness in the same printing line, we are able to print the same color and same design with all.

    Please make the same comparison with your current supplier.

    Test 4 | Scratch Test

    The edges of panels are the most vulnerable parts of furniture. Thus, they must be durable and strong against hits and damages. PVC itself is a durable material; how about the wood design on the PVC?

    This test would prove that not only Tece PVC edge is durable but also the adhesive of design is strong. Thanks to our UV printing and lacquering technology, both our design and our PVC surface is resistant to scratches and damages.

    Take the wooden stick and hold it in 90 degree angle. Scratch the surface with it at least 5 times. Do this test with your current supplier. Check which products' surface remains the same after the scratch.

    Test 5 | Adhesion Test

    One other way to test the PVC edging is to test the adhesion of the print to the PVC substrate.

    This test is to demonstrate the strength of the lacquer on the surface of Tece PVC.

    Please stick the tape to the surface with as much pressure as possible. And peel the tape off rapidly. If the surface is still proper; then, it shows the strength of the surface.

    Please do the same test on the product of your current supplier and see which products' surface still remains the same.
