3D Acrylic Edgings
The 3D acrylic edgings can be used as a creative element on a workpiece. They have a three-dimensional effect, as the decor printed at the back can be seen through the 1 or 2 mm thick acrylic layer. This distinctive look is still effective at trimmed areas of the edging and therefore does not produce any frame effect. When used in furniture fronts, the acrylic layer creates, for example, a modern glass look and can also be polished to a high gloss (except the painted versions).
As is customary, the OSTERMANN service is convincing in terms of flexibility and speed for 3D acrylic edgings as well. The edgings are available from 1 metre and in numerous widths. Coating with hotmelt adhesive is possible to a limited extent.
PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) highly transparent acrylic with a decor at the rear side.
Lightfast, level 7 - 8 according to DIN 53387 (blue wool scale)
Not paintable - for lacquering thin surfaces, we recommend special varnishable edgings from the ABS and melamine range.
Normally inflammable according to DIN 4102, B2 not self-extinguishing (B1 - hardly inflammable - only as a complete component, if LGA tested).
Temperature-resistant up to +90 °C
According to DIN 68861-1, not resistant to solvent-based and alcoholic substances.
Can be burned with wood waste at the required temperature (chlorine-free combustion)
- Distinct depth effect of the decor printed at the rear side
- Abrasion-resistant, as protected decorative printing
- No frame effect
- Polishability of matt surfaces and radius areas
Tips & Tricks
Flush and radius milling of 3D acrylic edgings should be carried out conventionally (up milling). For an exceptional look, polish through-coloured acrylic edgings to a high gloss by using polishing rings and buffing paste. For the final cleaning of acrylic edgings, do not use solvent-based cleaners.
Can be machine-bonded with all common hotmelt adhesives (EVA, PUR, PA, PO). Do not use any solvent-based adhesives. For machine processing: Use rubber rollers when feeding it into the machine to prevent damages to the decorative rear side.
Pretensioned, for optimal completion of the edge area. No splinters, no cracking, pressure-resistant while processing.
Finish cleaner - If possible do not use strong solvents containing alcoholic substances.
In weather-protected environment nearly unlimited shelf life at room temperature (20 - 25 °C), pre-glued, the max shelf-life is 6 months.
Minor surface damage can be polished away.
