Edge

Edge - that without which none of the product from DSP will not look attractive. Chipboard looks beautiful on all sides except the side of the cut, where the chip is visible, component of the plate. Edge - the band covering the butt plate, performs a decorative function and protects the slab from moisture and chips. Also prevents the edge of the allocation of formaldehyde. Usually, the edge is made of the following material: Melamine edge, Acrylic, PVC, ABS, edge can be of different thicknesses of 0.2 mm. up to 10 mm. The same edge is attached in different ways: Flush the consignment. And each of these edges is suitable for their purposes.

Let's consider the advantages, disadvantages and feasibility of each edge. Melamine edge of the paper is made from a density of about 130 GM coated with a decor. Paper impregnated with melamine resin and bonded to the substrate papyrus. To prevent evaporation melaminovyo resin edge treated with varnish. In order to secure the edge of the CPD at the end of it applied to the adhesive that melts during heat treatment and reinforces the edge on the stove. Such an edge is very easy to use and is secured with a hair dryer or iron construction. Melamine edge can be fixed, even at home. However, due to its small thickness, it hides the bad bumps, peeling and chipping subject. Therefore, it is used on those parts of furniture, which are subject to less stress. Acrylic edge is often called 3D-edge due to the visual effect of "depth" picture. This edge has been widely used in the manufacture of kitchen, office and residential furniture. This edge is based on the acrylate, which not only performs the function of trimming, but also protect the image. These easy to polish the edge, and their appearance gives them a definite advantage over the other edge. Modern and beautiful acrylic edges are used more often, and the furniture with their use is very effective. PVC and ABS edges. These edges are very close. The similarity begins on the method of manufacture of these edges. Almost the same thickness, similar in appearance and is very widely used. However, these edges are made of different materials and, consequently, have different properties. For example, the edge of the ABS is resistant to high temperatures and allows the use of more resistant adhesives, and also does not contain harmful substances that may be released when heated. Also, ABS softer edge and thus it is easier to handle and mount. However, the ABS edge more than the edge, made of PVC.

In turn, the edge of PVC is used very often, not only because of price but also good properties, either, this is usually on the end plate irregularities, or resistance to external influences. However fixing this type of particle board edges must be processed on modern saws and milling machines to achieve a certain quality of cut. Also, these edges require additional hardware, unlike melominovoy. The latter type is the edge of the PVC profile. This profile is U-shaped and T-shaped. U-shaped profile as it compresses the plate and labeled C-16 or C-18, where the letter marking the profile and the number indicates the thickness of the slab on which it was designed. In order to secure such a profile along the length of kromiruemogo butt to do the cut, which will be inserted into the profile. Such a profile may be familiar to many of the school desks, in the manufacture of which is often used this type of edge. However, these kinds of trimming can not ensure complete sealing end and are not recommended in the manufacture of kitchen, nursery, bedroom furniture. In our work we use a different edge, and rest assured we will find is the one that best suits your stand and not burden you with additional costs.
