Straight line edging

Traditional edge banding was a manual process requiring ordinary carpentry tools and materials. In modern applications, particularly for high-volume, repetitive manufacturing steps such as cabinet doors, edge banding is applied to the substrate by an automated process using a hot-melt adhesive. Hot melt adhesives can be water or solvent-based and may consist of various raw materials including EVA, PUR, PA, APOA, and PO. A substrate primer may also be used as a bonding agent between the adhesive and the substrate. Thicker edge bandings typically require a slight concavity to provide a tight glue line. The thickness can vary from .018″ to 5mm or even more. The machine that applies the edge banding is called edge bander. An edge bander bonds the edge banding to the substrate trims the leading and trailing edges, trim top and bottom flush with the substrate, scraps any surplus, and buffs the finished edge.
