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.
