How to classify the type of furniture paper

The furniture decor includes wood grain veneer ( real wood grain veneer and artificial veneer), plastic film (PVC film, PET), paint and others, furniture paper is a big type of furniture decor, the based material is paper, their difference is according to the different printing and treatment technology.

How to classify the type of furniture paper is an open answer, we can classify them from different standards, different designs.

wood grain furniture paper

Printed decorative paper and impregnated film paper

Furniture surface decorative paper is a general name of all types of decor furniture paper, we can divide the furniture paper as printed decorative paper and impregnated film paper from dipped or not.

The distinguish between printed decorative paper and the impregnated film is whether it needs glue when applied on the wood-like surface.

The printed decorative paper needs white glue or wood glue when pressing on the furniture board, but the impregnated film no need glue when applied on the MDF, chipboard, etc furniture panel.

1. Printed Decorative Paper

The printed decorative paper is a kind of paper that imitates wood grain, marble, cloth and other patterns of various designs through image reproduction or artificial methods, and uses printing cylinders and color matching technology to print these designs.

Whether the surface of the paper is coated or not, printed decor furniture paper is divided into unpainted decorative paper and pre-painted decorative paper.

a. Unpainted decorative paper (Polaroid paper)

Polaroid paper is a kind of furniture printed decorative paper without surface painting, it is a kind of tissue paper with patterns printed on the surface, mainly applied for the veneer of particleboard, fiberboard, and plywood.

Adhesives are required, and finishing treatment is required after pressing.

b. Surface pre-painted decorative paper(Ornate paper)

Ornate paper is a kind of decorative furniture paper with painting, it also is a kind of tissue paper with patterns printed on the surface, mainly applied for the veneer of particleboard, MDF, and plywood.

Adhesives are required, but it doesn’t need painting after pressing, its abrasion resistance is not good, suitable for some furniture-making no need high requirement of abrasion resistance, floor surface decoration can’t use this type of furniture decor paper.

c. Surface pre-painted decorative paper ( Painted decor furniture paper)

Painted decor paper is a kind of titanium white paper with patterns printed on the paper surface, impregnated or coated with a small amount of resin, the resin content is usually 20% to 60%, the low resin content of the decorative paper is used for MDF veneer, and high content of painted furniture paper is used for edge banding.

The adhesive needs to be applied when veneer, generally no coating after veneer, the abrasion resistance is higher than that of ornate paper.

Yodean Decor provides a kind of  Finish Foil Paper, with PU coating on the surface, belongs to painted decor paper.

2. Impregnated film paper

Impregnated film paper is a resin impregnated paper made by impregnating the base paper with thermosetting synthetic resin and then drying to volatilize the solvent. The most common one is the paper impregnated with melamine resin, that is, melamine impregnated paper, also known as triamine paper.


According to different pressures, triamine paper can be divided into low-pressure triamine paper and high-pressure triamine paper.

a. Low pressures triamine paper

Low-pressure triamine paper is made of several layers of paper impregnated with melamine resin, which can be covered on the artificial board to obtain a low-pressure decorative board after hot pressing.

Low-pressure decorative wood panels don’t have many layers of impregnated paper, with features of low pressure when hot pressing, simple artwork, low cost, abrasion resistance, heat resistance, waterproof, chemical pollution resistance, has wide applications in veneer products, popular in wooden doors, custom cabinets, wardrobes, office furniture, etc.

b. High-pressure triamine paper

High-pressure triamine paper is developed for many years, this melamine paper has good performance and high brightness. But the pressure is too high when veneering and the hot pressing process is also more complicated.

The high-pressure triamine paper needs to do pressure-reduced after heating pressed and cold-pressed.

The main application of high-pressure triamine paper is a fireproof board, the surface decorative paper depends on the abrasion resistance of the fireproof board.

How to get stronger market competitiveness for furniture paper


Furniture paper belongs to the upstream sub-category, the competitiveness of furniture paper is the design and production technology.

  1. Designs of Furniture Decor Paper

The design of furniture paper depends on the pattern of household furniture, various design according to the trend of the furniture market is very important. The classic design can hold the old customers, but the new popular design can get more and more young customers, fashional design is always changing.

PVC edge banding is mainly used for sealing the cross-section of the board, so as to protect the board from the environmental damage, especially for the damage of the water in the air. In addition, PVC veneer edge banding not only can prevent the volatilization of formaldehyde inside the board, but also achieving a beautiful decorative effect for the furniture.

What is PVC edge banding?

The main component of PVC is polyvinyl chloride. It is made of PVC resin as main raw material, adding suitable anti aging agent, stabilizer, calcium carbonate, CPE, dyed agent, epoxidized soybean oil and modifier. It can be divided into soft PVC and hard PVC.


The category of PVC edge banding

PVC edge banding can be divided into plain PVC edge banding and wood grain PVC edge banding.


About the plaint color


Plain color refers to the red, yellow, blue, green, etc. in daily life, which can be called plain color,the essence of it is single color.


The structure of the plain PVC edge banding


The upper layer is made of PVC material, and the bottom layer is made of the glue. It is relatively simple to use plain color edge banding board first, while the white panel is white edge banding strip, and so on. Generally, the color is different, so when adjusting the color, the manufacturer will ask the customer to provide the reference color, such as the panel sample, the panel color card, etc.


About the wood grain color


Wood grain color is the surface with paint printing paint, forming similar to the effect of the wood veneer lines.


The structure of the wood grain PVC edge banding


The middle layer is PVC base material, the surface layer is paint printing, and the bottom layer is primer.


So the price of the wood grain edge banding is higher than that of the plain edge banding slightly.


The advantages of the PVC edge banding


  • PVC edge banding is light, comparing with the metal and plexiglass. The reason why it is light is not because it is a high molecular compound, but because it is an organic compound, which is composed of light elements such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen。


2、The material of PVC edge band is plastic, which is easy to process. Plastic has plasticity, which means deformation after heating or pressure, and maintain its original shape after cooling or pressure disappearing. It can be processed into different shapes by extrusion, such as T-shaped, H-shaped, D-shaped, V-shaped, I-shaped, etc.


  • PVC edge banding has high quality and low price, and the price changing of plastic is  less than that of metal.


4、Plastic doesn’t easily to decay or rust. However, this feature also brings a serious problem to human beings: because plastic is not easy to decay, a large number of plastic wasted can not be absorbed and decomposed by nature, which results in a certain degree of environmental pollution.



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.

2、Edge curl

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.


How to find the qualified PVC edge banding.

The notes of purchasing on PVC edge banding

A: Slide surface with no bubbles,no lines and temperate glossiness.

B:Both the surface of it should keep the same degree of flat, thickness and width.

C: Equitable hardness with higher elasticity, better quality and stronger wear resistance

D: After handing, the side color of the edge banding should be similar with the color of the surface. And we should make sure that the degree of the whiteness should not be very obvious, at the same time it should have a slight glossiness, if not the PVC edge banding must be made up by the low-quality materials, which will lead to the color of the furniture become inharmonious.

E: The treating agent of the back surface should be uniform. In general, the transparent and white treating agent is well. And if the back is not handled properly, it will lead to low bonding strength after edge sealing, or even can not be bonded.

F: The color of each batch of edge banding must be consistent. The smaller the color difference of different batches, the better the quality

G: The edge is cut off with flexibility and no cracking.

H: The transparent sealing glue (adhesive paper used for sealing carton) is pasted on the sealing edge. Rub it back and forth for several times with your finger at the position where the sealing glue is pasted, and then pull it to test whether there is discoloration in the edge banding.

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

Whats 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.

  1. 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.

  1. Short production cycle:

  1. Green:

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.

  1. Detachable:

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. Favorable price:

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.
