The outstanding application, processing and disposal features of ABS contribute to its broad market penetration, in particular, in furniture production.
What is Special About ABS Edgebanding?
Doellken ABS Edgebanding is manufactured in an extrusion process and are through-colored. The even through-coloring of the material enables clean and simple rounding o of edges. The impact resistant Doellken-ABS material guarantees long service life of milling and other cutting tools. Doellken ABS Edgebanding is coated on the back with a universal primer, to enable perfect adhesion of the Edgebanding to the substrate, using any suitable hot melt glue or solvent-based Adhesive.

ABS Edgebanding Details
Doellken ABS Edgebanding may also be applied manually, using a gluing jig or Edgebanding press, for instance. 2-component, acrylic based dispersion Adhesives or suitable contact adhesives are recommended. For further information, please contact your Adhesive manufacturer directly. Single component wood PVAC glue is not suitable for gluing. Special lacquer Adhesive, solvent glues or cartridge Adhesive (PU) may be used for manual gluing. We will gladly provide you with a list of various Adhesive on request. Gluing should be carried out at room temperature. To achieve optimal Edgebanding bonding when using contact Adhesive, ensure that the curing time after applying Adhesive to Edgebanding and board is adhered to. This is followed by tapping on the edgeband. Heating to speed up adhesion (e.g. heating rails) is superfluous when using dispersion glues. Processing may continue after curing (up to ca. 6 hours, depending on Adhesive).
