What is the PVC edge banding?
PVC edge banding is one kind of thermoplasticity coiled material made by the polyvinyl chloride in the way of calender by mixing up with the auxiliary, such as the plasticizer, stabilizer, lubricant, and the dye.
The PVC edge banding is always used with furniture contact paper, to decorate a better overall effect of furniture. In the furniture decoration market, the wood grain furniture paper is one of the popular contact paper, so the popular PCV edge banding is wood grain edge banding too, especial for maple edge banding and walnut edge banding.
The advantages of the PVC edge banding
1、Soft surface, although the surface was printed the wood、marble and the cloth texture on the surface, it still could keep the surface soft.
2、Having the realism and the third-dimension as the real wood.
3、Having a certain degree of the cleanliness feature and the decorative feature.
4、Having certain degree of heat resistance, chemical resistance, and corrosion resistance.
5、Having certain degree of solidity on the surface.
The main function of the edge banding.
1、Banding the panel section to avoid the damage caused by some negative elements in the environment and the using process (pay more attention for the water).
2、Avoid the volatilization of the formaldehyde hiding in the panel to achieve the function of decorative feature.
About the calcium carbonate powder (usually be called lime powder)
Generally, there is some calcium carbonate in the PVC edge banding. And the content of the calcium carbonate powder should be kept in an appropriate quantity. If it too high which will make the structure of the PVC loose and affect the quality of the PVC edge banding heavily, causing a lot of problem, such as
1、Crease in white.
It means that the edge banding is flexed in arc-shaped which will caused the white crease. Once the white crease caused and it will not disappear, even through the edge banding is straightened again.
It means that handling the detail about the edge banding will cause a gap, producing the edge curl. There is no doubt that edge curl also caused by other situation, take a example, the different of the speed and the order of adding the hot melt adhesive and raw material will not make the edge banding attaching on the panel tightly which lead to the edge curl appearing。
3、Poor appearance with the dim glossiness
After the edge banding is cut in detail and polished. The glossiness of is will become dim and fuzzy, leading to the appearance poor. At the present market, a lot of manufactures will add more calcium carbonate powder. Sometimes the content of the calcium carbonate powder will even over 60%. And the reason for why dose the different type of edge banding with the same brand sell in different price, the key reason is the content of the calcium carbonate powder.
Due to the high content of calcium carbonate, the edge band has no toughness, and the internal structure will be loose. If it is affected by external force slightly, it will crack, especially in the transportation with low temperature.
5、The problems in surface printing
There are two technologies for surface printing: printing and heat transfer film. The surface of heat transfer film is glossy, and the product looks bright and layered. Then due to its high cost, slow transfer speed and inconvenient color assortment with the panel, it has been replaced by printing. However, some low quality PVC edge banding is added in excess calcium carbonate powder, which makes the problem about discoloration, whatever which printing technology we choose, the discoloration still can not be handled，so the technology of heat transfer film also be choose some time.
Panel type furniture VS Solid wood furniture
Solid wood furniture
The concept of solid wood furniture
Solid wood furniture is made of the natural timber directly, banning using any wood-based panel as the raw material.
Solid wood is usually used for producing the table and the closet’s cabinet door and side panel. And the real solid wood furniture requires high technology and quality material in the treatment of its raw material, the solid wood. For the solid wood, the selection, the drying process, and the jointing process must be treated with strict requirements.
In a summary, the solid wood grain furniture is made of real tree wood material and supplied strict surface treatment to make it smooth. Thus, the solid wood table, wood cabinets, wood shelves, etc wood furniture are more expensive than the panel-type furniture.
The disadvantages of solid wood furniture
The prominent shortcoming of solid wood furniture is flexible and hard to protect.
For instance, it can not be exposed in the sunshine circumstance.
Besides, the over-drying or over-damping circumstance also will do a harm to the furniture.
So it could be said that it’s hard to solve this shortcoming，no matter what kind of wood we choose or what kind of technology we use, these situations will occur frequently.
And sometimes even the solid wood furniture will become flexible and be cracking as the user swatches the air conditioner frequently, making a huge change about the air humidity.
However, the panel type furniture would not be easy to become flexible and be cracking. You will know why in the following.
Panel type furniture
What’s the panel type furniture?
Panel furniture is a combination of disassembly and assembly furniture, to use manual wood-based panels as the main substrate and panels.
About the artificial boards, the panel type furniture always uses the chipboard veneered, plywood, blockboard, particleboard, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), and so on.
At present, Woodgrain furniture accounts for a good large proportion in the category of Solid wood furniture.
Advantages of panel-type furniture?
Panel furniture is furniture made up of all surface-decorated man-made panels and hardware. It has basic features such as detachable, changeable shape, stylish appearance, not easy to deform, stable quality, and affordable.
The production of panel-type furniture
The superior panel type furniture must be made up of the superior chipboard(also be called MDF).
About the production process of the superior chipboard, the timber selected has to remove the knots and the stem, making sure the timber no wormhole, no decay, and no discoloration.
Next, drying it and crushing it into two shapes in granular and fibrous. After that, fixing up the two with a little bit binder in a proper proportion.
Then using the 400 tons of pressure which carrying out by the professional equipment to press it.
According to this process，the final panel shaped usually has great density, tight structure and stable physical properties.
Therefore the panel type furniture is not easy to be flexible, owning the large bending strength which even more larger than the real solid wood’s bending strength.
The trend of panel-type furniture
At present, the faced paper of the panel type furniture on the market becomes more and more authentic, particularly in the filed of itself glossiness and touching.
Meanwhile, whether the production technology or the quality of the hardware both reach to standard, even over it. So the panel type furniture produced under such a high standard usually has an expensive price.
The advantage of the panel type furniture.
Effective use of the tree:
The main raw material of the panel type furniture is the wood-based panel made up by the timber residue and fast-growing forest plantation.
Short production cycle:
The factory which owns superior technology would select the nano-plate, one of the MDF, and then with the help of the world-leading technology called compressing molding under high temperature and the nano physical properties of the wood fiber under high temperature and high pressure, the shape of the panel will be formed instantaneously. Producing it in such a way could forbid to use the resin catalyst (containing the formaldehyde), which makes the environment protection grade and physical property of the panel type furniture is better than those of the solid wood furniture.
The components of the panel type furniture usually linked by the hardware so that it’s very convenient to handle the disassembling section and installing section. For the panel type furniture produced with a higher machining accuracy could be disassembled and installed many times repeatedly and convenient for transporting.
Variable and fashionable shape:
The category of the faced paper is widely and all of them could make different changes in color and touching fields, bring abundant experience for the user. Besides, the panel type furniture could be designed in different and characteristic shape, which could not be applied in the field of solid wood furniture.
Not easily deformed:
The panel type furniture is sturdier than the solid wood furniture. To make the panel, the physical structure of the timber must be rebuilt. Thus, when the humidity changes greatly, comparing with the solid wood furniture, the panel type furniture would not be deformed too much.
Natural timber utilization is very high in the process of wood-based panel making. So the price of it is lower than the price of solid wood. Meanwhile, the raw material of the wood-based panel is almost the timber residue, which protects the limited natural resource indirectly.
PU coated finish foil furniture paper produced by our factory is used for the panel type furniture as the faced paper, for the wood gain has a powerful stereoscopic effect, making it become more authentic, and at the same time, the production process is very simple and efficient, the price is favorable.
What’s more, it will not pollute the environment. Base on all of the excellent advantages, PU coated finish foil furniture paper becomes the first choice about the faced paper in the market of panel-type furniture. Please contact us and learn more about the texture design and application fields of the PU coated finish foil furniture paper.
The melamine paper vs PU coated finish foil furniture paper.
Almost all of the people regarding the melamine as toxic material. Actually, melamine is a sort of chemical material be applied for the field with coating, laminate, binder, paint remover, textile, paper, leather tanning, flame retardant. Any chemical material can not be used for food additive for its toxicity, except the melamine.
The melamine could be used for the melamine MDF panels, decorating the furniture panel board for the melamine binder. Therefore the melamine panels are more popular be chosen by the high-end decorating of the furniture panel board market than the normal timber widely.
Then what is the melamine panels and what is melamine wood made of?
It’s not hard to explain the process to you.
First, the melamine contact paper with different colors or texture will be soaked in the melamine binder, next to drying it until it almost becomes the solidity and put the paper in solidity shape on the top of the timber with hot pressing and then it’s done, changing into the decorating board.
Whether the melamine used for bedroom solutions will cause harm to the human body?
Certainly not, the melamine usually can not be dissociated especially when it become the solidity shape. So as long as we do not eat the melamine used in the board and it certainly does not harm the human body. Meanwhile, the melamine panel with high quality must be checked strictly. Whether the melamine panel used in the furniture panel board will pollute the environment or not, it depends on the edge banding equality of the base timber used for the melamine panel. And if the edge binding is not be handed very well，leading to the formaldehyde discharge over the certification TSCA, and then it will make the air pollution rather than the melamine.
PU coated finish foil furniture paper
PU coated finish foil furniture paper is acclaimed at the decorative surfaces market in recent years, being used in different sorts of panels widely, such as Wood particle boar and Medium Density Fiberboard. It also is used in the producing process of Office supplies making, furniture making photo frame-making, and so on, being the necessary fresh material in the field of furniture panel boar. PU coated finish foil furniture paper is made of the plywood with a special texture, binding the unsaturated polyester resin, and the plastic film.
The difference between the melamine faced paper:
1, Raw material:
The melamine panel could directly be heated and pressed to become the melamine faced paper.
And the PU coated finish foil paper can not be made up in this way, it should be processed so many times by using other binders.
2, The Tolerance level of the high temperature:
The melamine’s physical property is a monoclinic system with hard and fragile polymeride. So it can be made up of the melamine faced paper directly, enduring the high temperature and preventing be destroyed by the damp.
About the PU coated finish foil paper, it usually is made up of the resin or the veneer, therefore it often is destroyed by the high temperature.
The melamine faced paper can change into any bright and colorful texture, used for the surface of wood-based panel for the durability of melamine faced paper in its great stiffness, abrasion resistance, and thermal resistance.
As for the PU coated finish foil paper, it lacks the great durability comparing with the melamine faced paper for it is made up of three binders.
The correct definition of the melamine faced paper is “Melamine Paper for MDF”, and it is made up of Titanium Oxide Paper (Also be called specialty paper) by soaking it into the melamine binder and then putting it on the surface of the wood-based panel. And it owns the great durability, therefore it is generally sell out at a high price. Besides, the melamine faced paper includes coated paper which seems like be coated foil on the surface and plyboard, belonging to the thin chipboard without great durability. Generally, the former could be sold out at a high price and the later just can be sell out at a lower price.

What is panel-type furniture ? Why furniture deals?
Panel-type furniture is a kind of furniture made of MDF or particle board, with features of cheap price, environmental protection, and multi-patterns, so the panel-type furniture catches the furniture market fastly when it occurs, popular in the worldwide. A large part of this furniture is wood grain simulation furniture.
At present, the decorative materials of some panel furniture sold on the market are more and more realistic, and the gloss and hand feel are good. With this quality now, panel furniture becomes a cost-effective choice for modern life, especially for the furniture with wood grain contact paper.
As the leading furniture deals supplier of decorative surfaces for this kind of furniture, Yodean knows well about the industry and can give you best suggestion for the choice of the popular pattern now in the furniture market. Here we will have a glance to know the classification of the panel furniture.
Panel furniture can be divided into:
Furniture Contact Paper – Melamine Impregnated Paper Faced Decorative Surface
Furniture paper on the furniture panel
After printing wood grain pattern or marble pattern on the surface of decorative base paper and impregnated with cyanamide glue, we get melamine impregnated paper – contact paper for furniture ( best poplar is wood grain contact paper ), which is then hot-pressed on the board substrate at high temperature.
The requirement for decorative furniture paper using
The furniture contact paper is usually used for the surface of particleboard and MDF, because the contact paper for furniture has a high requirement on the surface smoothness of the substrate, otherwise, the furniture paper will be pasted on the furniture panel unevenly.
The advantages of furniture foil paper
This kind of board with furniture foil paper is usually called Melamine Faced Board after melamine press facing, with advantages of perfect surface texture, abrasion resistance, scratch resistance and good water resistance. It is suitable for production and is mainly used in the manufacture of panel furniture.
The making material of furniture deals
Melamine Impregnated Paper has a different thickness and has the difference of imported paper and domestic paper. Surface printing ink can also be divided into imported ink and domestic ink and the embossed effect of decorative surface is also different.
The types of decorative furniture contact paper
According to the different dipping process, the furniture contact paper can be divided into total Melamine glue and semi Melamine glue. The wear resistance coefficient of semi Melamine is not as good as that of total Melamine.
According to the difference of hot pressing steel plate, furniture film can be divided into smooth surface, matt surface, corrugated surface, rain silk surface and so on.
Veneer Decorative Surface:
The veneer surface pasting on MDF / particleboard / multi-layer solid wood by high-temperature hot press becomes the Veneer Faced Board. Because the veneer skin can be divided into imported and domestic, precious wood and ordinary wood, the range of choices is large. Therefore, the grade of Veneer is determined according to the material type and thickness of the solid wood bark.
The surface of the Veneer Faced Board must be treated with paint. Due to the difference between solid wood bark and painting process, the same kind of solid wood bark is easy to make different effects, so the Veneer Faced Board has higher requirements on the coating and painting process.
Because of its real feel, natural and high grade, the veneer is the main decorative method of high-grade furniture at home and abroad, however, the relative material and manufacturing cost is higher.
At present, there is a popular technology veneer in China, which is favored by consumers for its real and natural texture, various patterns, no color difference and large format size.
- Interior PVC Film
Interior Film is a kind of relatively thin decorative paper while it is mostly made of PVC. It is pasted on the surface of furniture with white glue and then sealed with paint.
Because it is easy to mill and shape, it is mainly used for surface finishing of MDF. At the same time, Interior PVC Film has poor wear resistance, easy to leave scratch, easy to bubble discoloration, but for its relative cost is low, it is the preferred finishing method for many finished furniture in China.
- HPL (High pressure liminates)
HPL is a decorative surface made of siliceous material or calcareous material as the main raw material, mixed with certain proportion of fiber material, lightweight aggregate, adhesive and chemical additive and made by autoclave technology. The HPL has better high temperature resistance, wear resistance and chemical resistance and some of them can be bent after heating. HPL can not be used alone, it should be pasted on the surface of artificial board or wood. Due to the drying shrinkage of HPL, the process is not paid attention to when pasting and it is easy to open. Therefore, the requirements for pasting glue are relatively high during construction. The price of HPL with good quality is also more expensive than that of ordinary decorative panel. The thickness of fireproof board is generally 0.8 mm, 1 mm and 1.2 mm.
HPL is pasted on the base plate with glue, which is mainly used for the surface of wood parts made by hand on site. Because the amount of glue used in bonding is very large, the taste is very pungent, so it is not environmentally friendly. At the same time, due to the quality of the effect, the different sizing and pasting process, it is easy to blister and fall off.
- Finish Foil Furniture Paper Board
PU coated finish foil furniture paper is a product widely praised in the market of decorative surfaces in recent years. It is widely used in various boards, such as particle board, density board, etc., and can also be used in the production of office furniture surface, skirting line and photo frame. So, in the furniture manufacturing industry, it is a new material that can not be ignored.
Compared with Melamine impregnated decorative paper, PU paper is more environmentally friendly. Because the Melamine impregnated decorative paper is dipped in the melamine glue before use, there is much glue residue after it is pressed on the board, and the smell is heavy. But when PU paper is pasted on the board, it uses more environmental friendly white glue or wood glue, so even after it is pasted on the board, the residual smell is also small.
In addition, After impregnated, Melamine impregnated decorative paper will become very fragile, greatly improving the difficulty of transportation, and PU paper can be transported in rolls, which can reduce the risk of transportation damage.
Looking at the advantages of PU paper compared with other decorative materials, PU paper has become a new favorite in decorative surfaces market.
