What is Edge Banding?
Edge Banding is a wood panelling production process that consists of using a particular material to cover the seal the edges of the panels which have been exposed from the first initial panel cutting process.
Edge Banding is commonly used in furniture making and carpentry services. Moreover, wood panels have a raw edge when they are first cut, which can cause issues such as allowing the moisture to warp the wood overtime to eventually reduce the longevity of those products.
The panels will also look unattractive and less professional as the end product. However, this is where the finishing touches of edge banding comes in.
Edge Banding is commonly used on MDF, Plywood and Melamine panels and is used to cover up the ‘unappealing ends’ in order to give the panels a professional and finished look. By going through this edge banding process, cheaper wood panel materials can be transformed to look solid and professional, without being able to identify the type of wood used.
