TPU Zero Bondline Edgings
New solution for invisible bondlines
With the TPU zero bondline edging, Ostermann is offering the carpenter/cabinet maker a new solution for high end furniture design. The edgings are available in different versions, particularly made for the respective processing with modern laser, hot air or near infrared (NIR) technology.
For many years, Ostermann has been offering the established Laser, Airtec and Infratec edgings for the processing of optical zero bondlines, which are made to match the respective machine technology. Permanent tests guarantee the high quality of our products and the zero bondline edgings are continuously further developed. The TPU zero bondline edging is the result of such a product development.
Advantages of the new TPU zero bondline edging
- Extremely hard joint
- Optimum processing and perfect joint quality
- Excellent properties for extended use
- Extremely strong bond
- High water and heat resistance
- For furniture manufacturing at the highest level
The functional layer of the new edging is made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), i.e. of 100 % plastic. This leads to a hard, yet permanently elastic joint with a strong bond. The functional layer cures quickly, which prevents smearing at the units during post-processing, even at high feed speeds. The bondline does not shrink when drying out. Due to the hardness of the functional layer the joint will not deteriorate over the longer term. This leads to excellent properties for the extended use of the finished workpiece. Numerous in-house tests have shown the high water resistance. Moreover, a heat resistance of up to 150° C is achieved.
TPU for different machine technologies
