As AKS PLAST, we produce two different types of edge bands, PVC and ABS.
There are no distinct differences between PVC and ABS edge bands in terms of appearance, application, usage and quality. The only difference derives from the raw materials used during production. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is the first and most common raw material used for edgebanding, whereas ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) is more environmentally friendly in terms of content.
The quality of the wooden furnitures that are used in homes and workplaces is definitely reflected through the complementary and intermediate materials that you use. The quality of the details and intermediate materials and their harmony with the main body brings your furniture and wood prodcuts to the next level in terms of quality and elegance. With this understanding, while choosing the edge bands, it is important to pay attention to the edge band’s perfect harmony and match with the chipboard, MDF and PVC surfaces in terms of color, pattern and quality.
The most important issue while choosing the edge bands is to have a sample of that material which you are going to use. In order to achieve the right color and pattern harmony, we recommend you to choose your edge band in an environment with plenty of daylight ,or even choosing them at outdoor if it is possible.

Nowadays, edge bands are applied in banding machines with appropriate temperature, pressure and edge band glue. For the PVC and ABS edge bands, it is recommended to be applied by professional teams in accordance with occupational health and safety rules in special application workshops.
The lacquer, which is applied at the last step of the production of wooden patterns on edge bands, provides resistance against scratches. With proper care, edge bands can be used for a longer life. Solvent or alcohol-based cleaning agents should be avoided as they may melt the products’ surface. It will be sufficient to use suitable cleaning materials for plastic surfaces.
