Functionality with Aesthetics in edgebands
Earlier, the traditional bands was done in a very monotonous way. The sole purpose of edgebanding would be to cover the exposed parts of the materials (usually the sides/ edges). Therefore, not much focus was given to innovation. In addition, there were design limitations. But, RAUKANTEX edgebands opened up an unimaginably wide range of textures, colors, patterns, materials, and styles.
In addition, RAUKANTEX scratch.protect brings an altogether new level of quality to the surface. The soft-touch feel along with high-scratch resistance makes it an ideal product in the industry. It comes with additional features such as anti-fingerprint effect, anti-sheen effect, and extremely easy care. That’s not all. RAUKANTEX fire.protect makes the edgebands self-extinguishing as it is a halogen-free solution.
Moreover, RAUKANTEX health.protect prevents the contamination of furniture surfaces, especially in confined/closed spaces with high people traffic – a solution apt in today’s day and age. The specially-coated edgebands kill more than 99.9% of bacteria within 24 hours.
RAUKANTEX lumina offers an illuminated look to the furniture. This helps make the rooms look more spacious and cozier. It also creates an accent and provides a beautiful structure. These ‘light’ bands harvest the UV pigments and accentuate parts of furniture items.
