With RAUKANTEX lite, REHAU offers an innovative edgeband which - in addition to its conventional application - can also be used as back-lighting.
In order to achieve this application, a cavity must be milled into a chip or MDF board (38 or 50 mm wide). An LED band or RBG band is inserted into the cavity. The minimum covering layer is 8 mm. The translucent edge in the centre is applied to the board. In the case of free shapes on the BAZ [edgebanding centre] (glue application to the edge) a recessed glue application roller must be used which leaves the central area of the edge free.
When switching on the LEDs the light is transmitted through the translucent areas of the edgeband.
