Edge banding is used to cover the exposed sides of materials such as plywood, particle board or MDF, increasing durability and giving the appearance of a solid or more valuable material. Common substitutes for edgebanding include face frames or molding. Edge banding can be made of different materials including PVC, ABS, acrylic, melamine, wood or wood veneer. Edge banding is very durable and will last a long time if it is applied correctly. Edge banding is sold in pre-glued, glue-less and even peel and stick rolls! If you run into issues with the edge banding, you can always remove it and reapply new edge banding.
