Canplast ‘Edgebanding Specifiers’ provide helpful product and technical information assisting the designers and architects to find the right Edgebanding and to meet procurement guidelines as well as regulatory requirements for safety and performance.

Quality of Edgebanding

Edgebanding is a small detail in the overall list of products that flow into a project. However, the right choice in Edgebanding quality can have a significant impact on the quality of the project including transportation to the construction site, installation and long-term appearance.

The following information assists in the decision making process to specify the right Edgebanding product:

Edgebanding Specifier: High Traffic Areas / Impact Resistance

  • Project Requirement: High traffic areas
  • Product Requirement: Impact Resistance
  • Thickness: 1 – 3 mm
  • Surface: Smooth or Textured
  • Material: PVC, Boldline Multiform (BMF) or KLEAR-VU acrylic
  • Notes: The thicker the Edgebanding the higher the impact resistance. Canplast 3mm product offers the highest impact resistance possible and is perfectly suited for institutional cabinetry (schools, hospitals, libraries).

Edgebanding Specifier: High Traffic Areas / Dirt Resistance

  • Project Requirement: High traffic areas
  • Product Requirement: Dirt Resistance
  • Thickness: .018″
  • Surface: Smooth
  • Material: PVC
  • Notes: The thinner the Edgebanding the higher the dirt resistance. Canplast .018mm product offers the highest dirt resistance possible. Canplast Edgebanding with a smooth surface finish provides increased dirt resistance.

Edgebanding Specifier: Hidden Areas / Edge Sealing

  • Project Requirement: Hidden areas
  • Product Requirement: Edge Sealing
  • Thickness: .018″
  • Surface: Smooth
  • Material: PVC
  • Notes: Thinner Edgebanding provides a cost effective way to cover the edge in areas where impact resistance and visual appearance is less relevant.

Edgebanding Specifier: High Visibility Areas

  • Project Requirement: High Visibility areas
  • Product Requirement: Visual and tactile stimulation
  • Thickness: 2 – 3 mm
  • Surface: Smooth
  • Material: PVC, Boldline Multiform (BMF), KLEAR-VU
  • Notes: Thicker Edgebanding can be trimmed with a rounded edge giving the board a higher quality visual appearance. Canplast’s Boldline Multiform Edgebanding comes with an already grooved surface providing an interesting detail for desks and table tops.

Edgebanding Specifier: Safety Areas / Rounded Edges

  • Project Requirement: Safety
  • Product Requirement: Rounded Edges
  • Thickness: 1 – 3 mm
  • Surface: Smooth
  • Material: PVC, KLEAR-VU
  • Notes: Canplast Edgebanding eliminates visible joints and sharp edges. The edge can be trimmed in various shapes (angled, rounded, etc.) to increase the visible integrity between laminate surface and Edgebanding and reduce possible safety hazards.

Moisture Protection

  • Project Requirement: Moisture Protection
  • Product Requirement: Tight bond between Edgebanding and substrate
  • Thickness: .018″ – 3 mm
  • Surface: Smooth
  • Material: PVC, KLEAR-VU, Boldline Multiform, FusionEdge
  • Notes: In areas where furniture is exposed to water or moisture it is particularly important to apply the right Edgebanding and hotmelt Adhesive. Canplast Edgebanding is delivered with a high-quality primer on the back providing a lasting bond to the substrate. Canplast also supplies high-quality hotmelt making it a perfect union between Edgebanding, substrate and hotmelt.
