Product Description

Thermoplastic PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride Plastic) Edgebanding is manufactured through an extrusion process into many different thicknesses and widths to match virtually any solid colour, woodgrain or pattern.


The back side of the PVC Edgebanding is treated with a primer which is an integral part of establishing a successful bond with the adhesive.

Please note that slight colour variations from run to run are normal. Colour matches are developed/approved using D65 (daylight) light source, unless otherwise specified.
