- Specially designed adhesives for a large variety of profile wrapping
Profile wrapping is the “art” of applying a decorative material (foil, film, laminate) to the outside of any uniform lineal shape. The profile or substate can be made from any material that is consistent in shape, such as a piece of molding or PVC extrusion. We can wrap around all of the profile or just a part of it. Unlike panel laminating, profile laminating allows the wrapping of very intricate shapes with curves and angles.
In addition to surfacing of virtually any linear millwork for trim applications, profile wrapping has become a popular method for surfacing of millwork that is subsequently mitered to fabricate cabinet frames that match cabinet doors thermoformed. Similarly, flat and profiled millwork wrapped can be mitered to create the rails and stiles of five piece cabinet doors having membrane pressed or flat laminated center panels, duplicating the construction and woodgrain patterns of solid wood doors at a fraction of their price, particularly when compared with premium wood species.
Profile wrapping plays a decisive role in the plastic, wood material and metal working industries. Manufacturers of furniture and doors as well as specialists for interior and exterior construction use this clever technique to refine surfaces and profiles with a nearly infinite array of wrapping materials. These include: real wood veneers, finish foils, CPL thin laminates and plastic foils such as PVC, PET and PP.
