Next generation edge band.

Seamless. Glueless. ALPHA-TAPE ZERO®.

WARNING AGAINST PATENT INFRINGEMENT! – The Alpha-Tape zero® edge strips are intended for use outside of Germany only. Delivery of the Alpha-Tape zero® edge strips and of products provided with the Alpha-Tape zero® edge strips to Germany is not permitted. The company Moderne Kunststoff-Technik Gebrüder Eschbach GmbH hereby declares that it does not agree with the delivery of the Alpha-Tape zero® edge strips or to products provided with the Alpha-Tape zero® edge strips to Germany.


ALPHA-TAPE ZERO
® is the innovative edge banding
product made by MKT which can be employed for all
currently available zero-joint techniques without any
specific modification being required. 

ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® is suitable for Near-Infrared-Radiation as well.
 
ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® is based on the environmentally safe ALPHA-TAPE® PP edge banding and features a special, firm, co-extruded functional layer that eliminates the need for standard bonding agents or adhesives in processing.Through various techniques this special functional layer can be activated to bond perfectly and durably with the composite material: seamless, glueless.

ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® was originally developed for the laser-edging process for throughfeed machines and then optimized for CNC machines. The Hot-Air and Near-Infrared-Radiation [NIR] methods are additional processes for which ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® can now be used without difficulty and without any modification. No change of colour needs to be feared because of the temperature load. With the colour of the functional layer of ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® excatly matching the top layer of the edge banding and the board, an invisible, homogeneous and seamless transition will be achieved.

ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® – One edge banding for all processes: Laser – Hot-Air – NIR. Suitable both for the throughfeed technique and for processing on CNC machines.

Thanks to the calendering method ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® guarantees constantly equal layer thickness and cross-section of top layer and functional layer even at its rims. Thus, ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® significantly enhances visual quality, robustness and usability of any piece of furniture manufactured.


Dirt and moisture cannot penetrate into the fully
welded edge joint.
Compare to any other no-joint
edge bandings, ALPHA-TAPE ZERO
® can be fully
welded with itself.

The high material hardness of the co-extruded functional layer guarantees no smearing postprocessing at CAM and CNC/BAZ machines, because ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® is extremley durable in the welding joint. Thus, the use of expensive release and cleaning agents is extremely reduced, or close to zero. Heat resistance is enhanced considerably. Ageing and wear marks are things of the past. Complex coordination of edging material, bonding agent and adhesive is no longer necessary, and cleaning costs for the edged boards are being significantly reduced.Waiting and set-up times for colour changes are eliminated. Even furniture components with radii can be manufactured on CNC machines in perfect quality.

Seamless. Glueless. ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® is available in all dimensions and refinements. And EXCELLENT-finishings are also procurable as well.


ALPHA-TAPE® ZERO Multilayer
ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® is highly versatile. It can be fully welded with our conventional ALPHA-TAPE® PP edge bandings and with itself. In the MULTILAYER processing ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® is completely welded in multiple layers on top of each other. Despite the multitude of layers the edging result is still even and homogeneous. The MULTILAYER processing offers a number of unique advantages: Innovative effects thanks to a contrasting variation of differently coloured edges or functional layers, customized edging solutions from lot size one, previously only possible with special profiles at best. Following the same principle, ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® can be used for light-weight construction or plastic honeycomb panels as well.
