Edgebanding is often used in carpentry and furniture making to cover the exposed sides of materials such as chipboard or MDF and attain the appearance of a solid material. The edge-banding material is usually composed of PVC foil, melamine or wood veneer and is applied to the substrate using hot melt adhesives, most commonly EVA or PO, but also reactive PUR adhesive.
Valco Melton's repeatable and reliable edgebanding equipment has been
engineered to meet even the most demanding needs of the woodworking, PVC and aluminum environments. From hot melt supply to coating at any application width, we offer a complete range of adhesive dispensing solutions to increase the production efficiency of your edgebanding processes, while minimizing adhesive usage, waste and downtime for an overall superior quality product.
Production advantages offered by our systems include:
- Prevent adhesive degradation, and minimize the waste and cleanup typically associated with roller application processes using our closed adhesive system.
- Eliminate excess glue on board edges by controlling the exact placement and amount of adhesive used.
