T-bar edgings are easy to process for an industry expert. The T-bar fitted at the back provides a temporary hold while allowing the glue to harden. The edgings are made of sturdy plastic or aluminium. Plastic T-bar edgings allow the manufacturer to manually edgeband tabletops and curved workpieces.
Selected profiles are also available in small quantities. The aluminium T-bar edgings are covered with a protective film to maintain the high-grade look.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride).
Lightfast, level 7 - 8 according to DIN 53387 (blue wool scale).
For lacquering thin surfaces, OSTERMANN recommends special varnishable edgings from the ABS and melamine range.
Normally inflammable according to DIN 4102, B2 self-extinguishing (B1 - hardly inflammable - only as a complete component, if LGA tested). Burning in conjunction with water and humidity produces hydrochloric acids.
Temperature-resistant from -40 °C to +100 °C.
Fulfillment of the chemical stress group 1B according to DIN 68861-1
Segregated waste is recycled by the manufacturer. Chipping waste with PVC residues can be passed to the landfill.
- Easy installation (with T-bar)
- Good protection
- Impact- and shock-resistant
- Radii possible
Tips & Tricks
When using T-bar edgings, glue should always be applied to the board. Excess edging can be removed using a router or even a chisel. In order to edge tight radii, make regular cuts in the barb. OSTERMANN offers the later attachment of a barb to standard ABS edgings.
Bond manually with REDOCOL Kantol greenline. Glue is not applied in the groove but on the narrow surfaces of the board.
T-bar to temporarily hold the edging until the glue hardens (no clamping required), curved crosscut for the perfect completion at the edge.
Depending on the different variants, different radii are possible.
Finish cleaner - possibly do not use strongly solvent-based or alcoholic substances.
In weather-protected environment nearly unlimited shelf life at room temperature (20 - 25 °C).
Surface damage can be mended with touch-up pens or hard and soft waxes.
ABS Edgings with T-bar
Upon request we supply 2 mm thick ABS edgings with retrofitted T-bars. This allows an easy bond of edgings to boards on site, and without an edgebanding machine.
- Cut a 3.5 mm wide groove into the board
- Knock the T-bar edging in after applying edging glue
- Trim after 1 hour and finish
- For straight boards, outer radii, inner radii and mitred boards
The T-bar can be fitted at the right- or left-hand side of the edging upon request, for the processing of mitred boards and protrusions.
Minimum order quantity: 10 m per colour and dimension Delivered in rolls of 35 m max
T-bars are covered with a protective foil and can be fitted on all our stock items. Special productions are non-refundable.
Processing Tips for Fitting T-Bar Edgings
Cut a 9 mm deep groove into the board by using a slot cutter. Apply the special edging glue, on the right and left side of the T-bar and knock the edging in with a plastic hammer. After approximately 1 hour the edging can be trimmed.
DO NOT apply the glue inside the groove, as it will soften the T-bar and prevent a strong hold. All of our 2 mm thick ABS stock edgings can be retrofitted with a T-bar. To achieve a minimum bondline, we recommend ordering a double T-bar edging for 45 mm and 100 mm wide boards.
