PVC Edgeband Leading The Market in Thermoplastic Edgeband
According to research, since it has been indispensable for its price to performance ratio, the global PVC Edgeband holds the largest market share in thermoplastic edgeband, which accounts for 45.8% followed by ABS edgeband.
PVC – no other polymer is as versatile. For decades it has been indispensable for its price to performance ratio. PVC edgeband continues to be a popular edging solution. The material can be recycled, is self-extinguishing and has a UV light fastness ISO 4892-2 rating of 7. Semi-rigid PVC is capable of making tight radii on contour processing machinery.
ABS is another thermoplastic material. This impact resistant, tough material has many economic and processing advantages. It can be recycled or incinerated. ABS edgeband is highly heat resistant, has a UV light fastness ISO 4892-9 rating of 6 and can be processed on standard edgebanders.
Polypropylene edgeband has become very popular in the furniture industry in recent years. This material, with its soft cross-linked surface is environmentally sound. It requires very little energy to manufacture and can be recycled or incinerated. During incineration, it produces only carbon dioxide and water (as does natural gas). PP edgeband is suitable for use on standard edgebanders or on contour processing machinery. Universal primer system guarantees optimum bonding of the edging with hot-melt adhesive made of EVA/ PA or PUR. The edgeband has a UV light fastness ISO 4892-9 rating of 7. It is extremely resistant to heat and solvents, and has low shrinkage. PP is capable of making tight radii on contour processing machinery.
In terms of geographic, the Asia is largest production area, which amounts to 42.7% of global production.
