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.
