Information about melamine edgings
The melamine edging is an affordable alternative to plastic edgings and is especially suitable for less exposed areas, such as the straight edge for the narrow surface coating of wood materials. OSTERMANN‘s melamine range also contains special varnishable edgings which can easily be painted. We supply all melamine edgings as a pre-glued variant.
Melamine edgings are available from OSTERMANN in every width up to 300 mm. If required for painting, we recommend special varnishable edgings, which are available in various thicknesses. For an easy processing, we can also offer melamine edgings that are pre-coated with EVA hot-melt adhesive.

Tips & Tricks
Upon request, OSTERMANN slits melamine jumbo rolls in every width and has a wide selection of pre-glued melamine edgings in stock. These can be applied using a hot air blower, other hot air devices or an iron. Standard melamine edgings are only for straight gluing. They are not suitable as soft or folding edgings.
Processing of melamine edgings
Machine: can be machine-bonded with all common hotmelt adhesives (EVA, PUR, PA, PO)
Manually: simply melt the glue at the back of the edging using a hot air blower or an iron
Heat-permeable without melting. Remnants can easily be removed after bonding.
Risk of breakage when bending, therefore no post-forming or folding possible.
Plastic cleaner (DN cleaner) - avoid using highly solvent-based, alcoholic or abrasive substances.
Packaged in weather-protected environment at room temperature (20 - 25 °C) and with a humidity of 55 - 65 %, the max shelf life is 6 months.
Surface damage can be mended with touch-up pens as well as hard and soft waxes.
