NEXGEN™ Edging

NEXGEN™ edgebanding consists of two or more layers resin saturated face papers, backers and release papers which have been fused in a lamination process to produce a finished product.

Face Papers

A decorative face paper (solid, woodgrain or abstract print) matching popular high and low pressure laminates is impregnated with a polyester resin through a resin bath (saturation) process. The impregnation or saturation process produces a face paper that has a typical resin content range of 52% to 65%.


When polyester saturated face papers are laminated to resin pre-impregnated paper backer, the type of backer selected determines the type of product manufactured. Backers are used to add rigidity, strength and formability to the end product.

NEXGEN™ edgebanding is available in over 220 exact colour and finish matches to TFL.

Surface Finish

The surface finish is achieved by means of a release paper which imparts the surface design or texture to the product in the lamination stage.


The laminating process is achieved on a Hymmen continuous belt press with typical lamination specifications of 150 PSI and a temperature of 350 F. The pre-saturated face papers and backers are fused together as the polyester thermo set resins fully cure or cross-link in this process of high heat and pressure.
