Production Process

Extrusion

The whole production process of PVC edgebanding is fascinating. It starts with having the PVC powder processed at the extrusion machine. The powder is turned into rigid sheets that come out in continuous rolls. Our competent team understands the vitality of the ingredients used as well as the process and we approach each with extra care.

 Mixing & Extrusion

During the extrusion process, primer is applied to the back of the substrate. Primer is a special chemical that makes the edging adherable to the panel with hot melt. In our production, we make sure that we use the best quality and the right quantity primer for the best results. The product can fail to stick or start peeling off from the panel if wrong quality or wrong quantity of primer is applied to the product. Therefore, we pay special attention to the primering process. 

At our ultra modern facility, we make sure that all products are tested and adhere to perfect quality standards. We have varieties of textures and colors to choose from.

Printing

UV Printing System 

We derive most of our pride from our unmatched capability to print extruded PVC sheets in brilliant colors and designs. This has been made possible with our highly skilled technicians who use UV printing technology. This technology ensures that adhesiveness of the ink is continuously checked and confirmed. Most importantly, the UV lacquering that we use is resistant to all scratches and damages. To ensure that the surface of the edge is fully protected after process, special protective film could be applied.

    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

    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.

    Conclusion

    At TECE, we know that our PVC quality is superior from many other producers.

    With this guided tests, we wanted to show you this step by step. Of course, there are many other tests that could be done to check the quality. Yet within the limits, we found these tests to be the most effective and measure ones. We hope that with this presentation, you are better furnished with the quality of Tece PVC edges. Please contact us to get actual Tece PVC samples to comparison.
