WOODWORKING

Edgebanding

For decades, edgebanding of wood-based panels with a variety of edgebands has been an established practice in the furniture industry. In modern, high-quality furniture manufacture, the quality of the edgebanding is increasingly becoming a key criterion for evaluating the quality of the entire furniture item.

The end customer demands a glueline that is hardly visible and perfect. ECT Adhesives are the authorised Irish supply partner for Jowat Adhesives, a global manufacturer and supplier of hot melt adhesives of the latest generation in a variety of package sizes and forms. Jowat hot melts provide the ideal process solution for every edgebanding application, having approvals from all key equipment manufacturers for their EVA, PO and PUR Edgebanding Adhesives.

ECT are also the appointed distributor for Ireland for the RIEPE Release agent, Antistatic Coolant and Cleaning agents which are specially developed for the RIEPE® spraying systems by RIEPE® themselves. Working very closely with leading machine, edgbanding and adhesive manufacturers RIEPE® ensure their products always meet the latest demands.

Glue residue squeezed out after the application of plastic or veneer edging material spoils the appearance of edgebanded products. This glue residue quickly adheres to the workpiece and its removal requires time-consuming manual work. The attachment of RIEPE release and cleaning agent spraying units guarantees an edge which is absolutely free of glue.

Flushing Agents

The primary task of a flushing agent is to physically push out the adhesive from the hoses and the application unit, and therefore to purge product remnants from the system.

Due to the general flow behaviour of liquids the flow velocity is significantly lower at the walls compared to the centre of the hose. To ensure that the hoses are cleaned thoroughly, it is thus necessary to use a sufficient amount of flushing agent.
