Product Information

Aluminium edgings are versatile and complement both plain and decor boards. Particularly combining wood and aluminium can make an exclusive eye-catcher of your workpiece. OSTERMANN supplies Aluminium edgings as a roll and in straight lenghts in fine finishes. For the production of plinths, you can use ABS edging with a real aluminium finish.

Tips & Tricks

For a better processing, solid Aluminium edgings have to be heated to 45 - 50 °C. Use a hot press or place hot air blowers underneath the edging table in order to do this. Before milling treat with Teflon spray. This is done by rubbing a cloth moistened with the spray on both sides of the unrolled edging. To complete this process, sand the radius/chamfer with 240 grit sandpaper and seal with hard oil.

Processing Instructions

Rolls: can be machine-bonded with PUR hotmelt adhesive (primer applied). Apply Teflon oil on the narrow areas of the edging. Fitted with PE protective film 50-60 microns ( μm), not UV-resistant.

No splinters, no cracking, pressure resistance while processing.

Heating up of the edging material to 45 - 50 °C.

Inner and outer radius for 1 mm thickness ≥ 200 mm.

Use of non-abrasive cleaning agents.

Dry storage of the edging at ordinary room temperature (20-25 °C), min. shelf life with primer 1 year.

Sand the edging after trimming and rub it with a hard oil soaked rag.
