Profile wrapping with hot melt adhesives
Wrapped profiles are today accepted as standard components in the manufacture of modern furniture and building interiors. Whether as furniture decor, baseboards or cornice rails, drawer frames, wall and ceiling panels, doorframes and other profiles of any kind – profile wrapping on the most diverse base substrates is a hot topic today, and wrapping materials can be chosen from an almost endless variety of foils, papers or veneers. The materials for the basic profiles may differ widely. They range from solid wood, over wood-based substrates, to plastics, and increasingly, aluminum and metal profiles are wrapped.
The technology for applying the adhesives is also progressing continuously. The preferred technology is currently the application by width-adjustable slot nozzles. The feed speeds have sometimes multiplied over the past years, and today, modern lines can reach up to 100 m/min.
