Edgebanding 101 and New Customizations Available

In this month’s blog post we take a closer look at the types of edgebanding available, customization we offer, and how to find the perfect edgebanding match for your product needs.

What is edgebanding?

Edgebanding in the simplest of terms is narrow bands of material used to cover the exposed trim of plywood, MDF and other wood products, serving both a functional and aesthetic purpose. Functionally, edgebanding increases durability of your wood product by providing impact resistance and it also creates a seal that keeps moisture out of the wood core. Edgebanding, or edgetape, is made of various materials – PVC, ABS, and wood veneer. At Teknaform we offer both PVC and ABS options however PVC edgebanding has now become the most used product in the North American market.


Edgebanding’s other purpose is to create a polished look for your wood product. Teknaform’s catalogue offers endless woodgrain, colour and patten possibilities, ensuring that we meet your specific requirements. Looking for a more realistic woodgrain look that eliminates the picture-frame effect? Our grainthrough option can be matched to any colour woodgrain with any texture listed on our website, giving the impression of a woodgrain in the core. We also offer a variety of gloss levels on our grainthrough product - on thick material only with size ranges of 7/8 x 3mm to 1-5/16 x 3mm.
