Soft Melamine Edgebanding

Think of an office desk, wouldn’t it be nice to have the front part of this table with special radius? So that when leaned, it won't hurt elbow or it will not be damaged. And we have a special product that could be used to cover the radius edge. After CNC or routing, the special melamine edging can be applied. We call it 'soft melamine edgebanding'. And the process is called softforming edging application. The soft melamine edge could be applied with softforming machine or hot air blower

Soft Melamine Edgebanding

The main difference between the standard edge and soft edge is its flexibility. Melamine edgebanding can be produced in a way that turning soft radius could be possible without cracking. Comparing the straight melamine edging, soft melamine is much more flexible and thus enables the furniture maker to apply to radius shaped edges without cracking at the radius point. 

The possible embossing textures for the surface are pearl (orange) effect, wood pore effect, and ash effect.

As other products, a color match is also possible for this product line.

    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.

    Test 4 | Ironing

    Place our sample on a table and hold an iron directly on it for 20 seconds. Do the same for the product you are currently buying.

    After 20 seconds, check which sample showed more resistance to heat. Note: Make sure to use a dark edgebanding sample for this test.
