The disadvantages of conventional processing were the starting point for Döllken`s development study. Glue joints resulting from this process have a different colour and compromise the profile of edge and panel. Adjusting the adhesive and temperature levels is also necessary. Döllken developed a brand new genre of edgebands - applied without the use of conventional adhesives. This co-extruded edge has since been registered for a patent, the innovative features relating to the integrated functional coating. This new laser joint technique uses a beam to melt the functional coating, thus bonding the edge to the panel without any visible joint.
