ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® is the innovative edge banding made by MKT, which can be applied with all currently available zero-joint technologies without any specific modification required. Based on our environmentally harmless ALPHA-TAPE® PP edge banding, ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® features a special co-extruded functional layer which is color-matching with the top of the edge banding and the pattern. This functional layer is activated by one of the techniques and thus ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® bonds perfectly and durably with the composite material. No matter if it is processed by Laser, Hot-Air or NIR (near-infrared), in through-feed machines or on CNC/BAZ machining centers, an invisible, homogeneous and seamless transition is achieved with all processes. Conventional adhesion promoters or adhesives in processing are superfluous.
Perfectly manufactured furniture pieces
significant increase in visual quality, durability and usability, no penetration of moisture or dirt
Even furniture parts with radii
in perfect quality and without any visible joint
No signs of aging or wear marks
enhanced heat resistance
Visually and haptically high quality transitions
through color-coordinated functional layer
no complex coordination of edge banding material, primer and adhesive, reduction of cleaning efforts, no waiting or set-up times for color changes.
Post-processing at CAM or CNC/BAZ machines without smearing
thanks to the high material hardness of the co-extruded functional layer, extremly durable especially in the welding joint, reduction of expensive separating and cleaning agents
Constantly equal layer of thicknesses and cross-sections
of top layer and functional layer due to calendaring method
ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® is available in selected embossings for plain colors and decor reproductions.
