Different types of edge materials are used for showcases, display cases and store fixtures. Below are some materials that are used depending upon the application.
1. PVC edgebanding: This comes in thicknesses of .02" (.5mm), 2mm, and up to .125" (3 mm). It is the most widely used edge treatment. It gets applied using an edgebander machine. This can be applied on both straight and rounded edges. Edge banding can be printed in the same colors as laminates for a close match.
2. T-mold or T-mould: This comes in different thicknesses and shapes. The edge of the board is slotted and the product is pounded into place using an air hammer. This is a good application for boards with rounded corners. There is a limited amount of woodgrain colors and even solid colors compared to PVC edgebanding.
3. Self edge: Strips of HPL (High Pressure Laminate) get applied to the edge using an edgebander machine.
4. Post-formed edge: The laminate on the top surface is wrapped around the edge. It is used on most kitchen counter tops and higher-end desks and some retail work surfaces. To be able to wrap the edges the laminate is thinner than regular High Pressure Laminate.
