Plastic edgesBest protection for your furniture

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, furniture fulfils, above all, a functional role. As a part of our everyday life, it is always in use – and that can leave its traces. Our OPTIMA plastic edges therefore not only provide the ideal edge finish but also protect against mechanical and chemical damage and against moisture.

The high-impact solution

ABS edges are based on a particularly impact-resistant and mechanically and thermally stable plastic (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) that is up to 100% recyclable. ABS edges are outstandingly suitable for the high-quality coating of narrow surfaces and are particularly resistant to moisture and mechanical stresses. We therefore recommend these edges for final products that are used in intensively used areas with raised humidity or high temperature fluctuations. For optimum adhesion, the back of the edge is coated with a bonding agent. 

Properties

  • Scratch-proof
  • Light-resistant
  • Good radius machining
  • Long tool life for cutting and milling tools thanks to high surface hardness
  • Ease of disposal: Recycling possible after separation
  • Ideal for extreme temperature and humidity variations

 

 

The all-round solution

Thermoplastic edges based on PVC (polyvinyl chloride) are easy to use and outstandingly suitable for both straight processing and for producing rounded edges with ease. In addition, the material shows high resistance to scratching, impact and chemical attack. A special formulation ensures long tool life for cutting and milling tools. Furthermore, all our PVC edges are coated on the back with a primer.

Properties

  • Easy to use, even on sweeping rounded edges
  • Outstanding scratch and wear-resistance
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Outstanding light-resistance
  • Long tool life for cutting and milling tools
  • Coated with universal bonding agent
  • Optionally coated with hot melt adhesive
