Since its establishment in 1919, Jowat Group has started to provide adhesive products for the wood and furniture industry. During 100 years of development, the adhesive still plays a key role in Jowat’s business with the quality, brand name and reputation affirmed and recognized by customers.
Along with the overall development of the industry, Jowat has also researched, manufactured and supplied adhesive solutions for various applications of the furniture industry such as:
– Processing wood
– Processing wood-originated materials
– Sofa furniture, seats
– Bedroom furniture
– Furniture stores, offices
– Details, molding
– Producing doors
In particular, Jowat adhesive is widely applied in finishing door; cabinets; table; kitchen surface; on wood based panel. Edge banding adhesive is also used in room / outdoor; double plate; window skeleton and other household appliances.
Advantages of Jowat edge banding adhesive
Regarding the density, the poor quality adhesive in the market often have high filled content (possibly> 50%). This reduces adhesion and increases consumption per unit area of glue.
Therefore, although the other edge banding adhesives have lower prices than Jowat’s, it takes more consumption. Therefore, more glue must be used. This fact leads to more expensive cost than using high quality adhesive with a good price like Jowat.
Besides, low quality adhesive can not adhere banding such as veneer, ABS … in hard position.
In addition, the poor-quality glue lines often have the phenomenon of glue burning and heavy glue smell due to many impurities. Glue quality is not stable over time when exposed to moisture, temperature …
Caution when using edge banding adhesive
While operating the gluing machine, it is necessary to observe the parameters relating to the operating temperature of the adhesive. Glue surface should be smooth and flat on the edge of the board.
Besides, the pressure of glue roller on the edge also needs to be installed correctly. Testing can be done before gluing edges by closing the glue knife on the rollers, then testing on MDF boards. If the glue is visible, the roller is in direct contact with the board, then the instructions need to be adjusted.
Ensure the quality of the board before putting it on the edge-gluing line: the board needs to be thoroughly cleaned, well prepared before gluing.
Both board and edge banding must have a minimum temperature of over 18 degrees Celsius. The glue area should also be hygienic, minimizing ingressive dust.
Errors due to improper use of edge banding adhesive
The following errors may be encountered when applying edge banding glue:
– Glue is spinning
– The surface is sticky after being pasted
– Lack of glue at the starting points of edge banding
– Peeling off edge banding
– Swelling board after dehumidification
– Adhesive layer is too thick
– Adhesive layer has holes
– Peeled off at the corner of panel
– Blistering after painting
These errors may occur depending on the quality of the adhesive; edge setting mode or operating during edge gluing process.
