Membrane Pressing is the process by which a 3D Laminate is bonded to a composite wood substrate using adhesives during a heated thermoforming process. The process enables components to be made with contoured surface profiles and seamless edges, eliminating the need for edge banding and special edge treatments.
- They can be used to create ergonomic edge profiles for work surfaces
- With membrane pressing, healthcare furnishing OEMs can fabricate seamless patient furnishings which may help mitigate the risk of dirt and bacterial accumulation as well as make cleaning easier
- Brand owners can incorporate punch-outs and logos to reinforce branding throughout a retail or food service environment
- Designers love the creative freedom. Creative shapes and concave and convex surfaces are only the beginning!
