Edge banding for wood workers involves any number of rudimentary techniques to add a decorative edge to plywood. We offer high-tech laminate edge banding for designers. That means more options and unbeatable peformance. Too often the conversation about edge banding ends at color matching. We offer spot-on color matching, but that's just the start. At KML, we believe in producing a finished product that isn’t limited by the constraints of 90-degree angles. That’s why we do much of our edge banding with a SNX nVision Contour Edgebander. It provides unmatched edge banding performance for shaped pieces. Not only do we produce some of the most innovative textured TFL in North America, but we can also cut and band our laminate to size and shape.

Common Questions

What is edge banding?+

Edge banding, sometimes also called edgebanding, is a process and product used to seal the raw edges of laminate panels to create a seamless, color-matched, and finished look. This involves wrapping the raw edges of the panel with edge banding “tape” using precisely tooled machines and high-tech materials made of ABS or PVC.

What is PVC edge banding?+

PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) is one of the common materials used to create edge banding, the strong, color-matched “tape” that is precisely adhered to the raw edges of a laminate panel to give it a beautiful finished look. PVC is one of the most widely used synthetics on earth and its known for its durability.

What is ABS edge banding?+

ABS edge banding tape is a plastic-like material used in laminate edge banding. It’s known for being durable, user friendly, and extremely fire resistant. It’s also a little easier to recycle than PVC edge banding materials.

Is edge banding durable?+

Made from ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) or PVC (Polyvinyl chloride), modern edge banding for laminate is very durable offering tight, nearly invisible seams. ABS is known for its strength and resistance to abrasion. Widely used in the construction industry in applications ranging from flooring to plumbing, PVC is also known for its durability.
