Edgeband for all requirements

Growing demand for good design and looks coupled with excellent product quality play a leading role in furniture manufacture. Whatever your edgeband requirements, REHAU has a perfect solution for every requirement in terms of design, function and processing in the RAUKANTEX range.

Your benefits:   

  • Available ex-stock
  • Everything from one source
  • All edgeband solutions available in minimal quantities

The REHAU edgeband collection includes more than 1,200 colours and decorative designs. The various edgeband solutions on offer will help you achieve equal perfection in your fabrication. REHAU offers an edgeband for every requirement – from simple carcass finishing with the standard RAUKANTEX primer edgeband or the inexpensive RAUKANTEX plus edgebands (the perfect introduction to invisible joints), all the way through to high-quality, seamless front processing with the pure polymer RAUKANTEX pro edgeband solution.

In Germany, laser bonding for edgebands is patented by Bulthaup. However, REHAU has an agreement with Bulthaup ensuring that our customers can legally use the laser-bonded edgebands made by REHAU and sold under the “RAUKANTEX Pro” name.

Four technologies for invisible joints

Currently, invisible joints can be made using four different technologies: laser, hot air, NIR and plasma. All four can be used on RAUKANTEX plus and RAUKANTEX pro furniture edgebands.

Laser technology

This entails a laser beam activating the functional layer which melts and bonds permanently to the rough surface of the substrate. Laser technology is now used in many industrial applications.

Hot-air technology

In this procedure, compressed hot air melts the functional layer. Commercial customers and smaller fabricators value this technology as it is less expensive than the laser method.

NIR technology

Near-infrared technology targets thermal energy quickly and precisely: An ideal way to activate the functional layer on REHAU invisible joints.
