What is the difference between ABS edge banding and PVC edge banding?
Some customers are confused by ABS and PVC. These two thermal materials are both widely used for custom furniture edge banding components.
Some wise position that ABS is better. Since ABS shares most of the PVC characteristics, but ABS is of lighter composition (lower density), does not include chlorine in its composition, and is not flame retardant. ABS edging is 100% recyclable ((thermo-disposable), safely incinerated.
What Is ABS Edge Banding?
ABS edging has been on the market for about 20 years as an eco-friendly awareness of environmental protection. It takes more market share compared with PVC in the furniture and woodworking industries.
ABS is a high-grade thermoplastic that’s very resistant to, so it’s great for furniture in high-traffic areas.
It’s also a great material for use in offices, bathrooms, all interior furnishings, even for exhibition stands. Its high level of heat resistance means it can be used on kitchen cabinets next to hot ovens or hobs without damage or distortion.
Features and benefits of ABS edge banding trim
ABS is a highly resistant laminate banding that is abrasion resistant, impact resistant to everyday knocks and scrapes, mechanically and thermally resilient and ecologically sound. It can withstand water, is highly heat resistant, and isn’t damaged by domestic cleaning products making it perfect for family kitchens
As an edging, ABS is very flexible in design Whether straight edge boards, curves, or custom shapes.
If you’re looking for the perfect edging solution, Then the versatile thermoplastic ABS edge banding will be a great choice.
How to judge the quality of ABS edge banding is a good skill;
1. Visually check whether the color and texture of the ABS edge banding are consistent with the plate used. Check whether the surface of the edge banding is smooth. any impurities?. If there are spots or fine bubble holes, it may be made of recycled miscellaneous material.
2. Second: check whether the back of the ABS edge banding is flat. You can use a flat blade to clamp the edge banding horizontally to see if it is straight. If it is not straight, thick glue lines will appear on both sides of the edge band.
3. Third: Check whether the thickness and pressure adjusted by the edge banding machine are coordinated. Use a short length of edge banding to seal the edges, and then tear them apart to check whether the bonding strength between the edge banding and the hot sol is reasonable and uniform. If the strength is not enough, it is necessary to check whether the temperature of the hot melt of the edge banding machine meets the use standard.
4. Whether the side of the plate is even after trimming, if there are jagged, it may be the following reasons: the trimming knife is too blunt; the edge band is too hard; the edge band contains too much calcium carbonate. Use nails or other tools to scratch on the edge band. If there is any damage, the surface wear resistance and hardness of the edge band do not meet the standard, which proves that the quality of the edge band is unqualified.
After understanding the detection method of ABS edge banding, then you can choose high-quality products with high quality more rationally when you buy ABS edge banding.
