PVC Edge Banding
PVC is one of the best known and most commonly used plastics in the production of edge banding, often the choice for high volume users. PVC edge banding tapes are generally flame retardant (do not spread the fire) and are 100% recyclable. They offer high impact resistance and are suitable for straight and curved panel processing. They are used widely across the furniture industry including the manufacture of kitchens, bathrooms and shop fitting.
ABS Edge Banding
ABS is a newer material used for edge banding. It shares a lot of the characteristics of PVC, but ABS is chlorine free and is not flame retardant. It is often described as more environmentally friendly, mainly due to it's incineration and disposal characteristics.
