– Both boards and edge banding must have a minimum temperature over 18 degrees C.

– Avoid dirt on the glue area.

Note about glue roller:

– Choose a roller with a surface that is suitable for the glue. The characteristics of rollers greatly determine adhesive quality and machine strength.

– Adjust the glue roller is 0.1 – 0.2 mm far from the side of the board.

– Glue rollers need enough glue at the set temperature.

– Close the glue knife on the roller, then try to run MDF boards, if you see glue means the roller is in direct contact with the board. Therefore, it is necessary to adjust the navigation.

– Prepare and clean the board well before gluing.

– The temperature of the board and edge banding is above 18 degrees C.
