Adhesives for modular bedoom furniture

In the sleeping area, case furniture is ubiquitous. A large closet, bed as well as chests of drawers or bedside tables can be found in every bedroom. The core material of the furniture panels used for this consists of wood-based materials such as MDF or pressboard. For a sophisticated look, decorative materials are glued to the wide surfaces of the furniture panels. In addition, the narrow surfaces of the edges are coated with special edge bands. The choice of adhesive plays a decisive role in both surface lamination and edge banding. Durability, perfectly laminated surfaces or an edge finish with an invisible glue line define the requirements profile of the adhesive. Furthermore, ever faster and more efficient production processes demand a specially adapted adhesive formulation.

Polyurethane-based adhesives offer by far the best performance. Our reactive PUR hotmelt adhesives are also available in micro-emission quality. This enables better occupational safety. In addition, the use of these adhesive systems is more environmentally friendly compared to conventional PUR hotmelt adhesives.

Lamination

2D surface lamination of bedroom furniture

Laminating furniture fronts

Flat furniture elements can be laminated with a huge range of decors such as real wood veneers, decorative paper films, or PET and ABS films. These are all available in different designs, with and without embossments, to provide high quality surfaces and an appealing look and feel. Large-surface industrial lamination of flat furniture panels is usually done in a flat lamination process (2D surface lamination). The adhesives applied here must have excellent processing properties, especially when used for laminating very thin films. Laminated panels are typically used for:

  • fronts

  • sides

  • rear panels

  • shelves

  • bed sides and headboards

Super matt and high-gloss decors are current trendsetters in the furniture industry. The surfaces must be mirror-smooth, also across bonded edges, as even the smallest irregularities can negatively impact the visual effect.

KLEIBERIT has a wide selection of adhesives for classic decor materials as well as for high-gloss and super matt decors. We also offer adhesives for laminating with thin films and have the expertise to optimally configurate your production process.

CompleteLine process – surface coating and edge banding in one step.

In addition to classic surface coating, we also offer tried-and-tested inline solutions for effective surface bonding and edge banding in a single run. The CompleteLine process enables extremely smooth surfaces. EVA-, APAO- or PUR-based hotmelts are applied directly to the decor paper, with the choice of adhesive depending on the heat sensitivity of the decor materials, the speed of the production process, and the performance specifications of the end product. Combinations of different adhesive systems are also possible.

Our chemical engineers and scientists are constantly researching new adhesive formulations and their processing methods. KLEIBERIT excels in tailored and customer-oriented adhesive solutions! Let us help you find the right adhesive for your needs, contributing to the most efficient production process. We draw on decades of experience in surface bonding and edge banding, and have comprehensive expertise and knowledge of standard machines and production processes. Contact us.

3D surface lamination of bedroom furniture

3D lamination with plastic decors

Furniture panels with 3D surfaces are often used for furniture fronts of wardrobes and sideboards, etc. The core material is usually made of MDF in all kinds of shapes and sizes, that is then 3D-laminated with PP, PVC or ABS films. Low-viscosity PUR dispersions are the most suitable adhesive for such purposes, as they are easy to spray on and ensure permanent and stable bonding of the decor material. The 3D processing method uses membrane or vacuum presses. Once the laminate and the core material have been joined, pressure and heat reactivate the adhesive, allowing the decor material to adapt perfectly to the texture of the carrier material.

3D laminating with real wood decors

Real wood veneers are usually laminated with PVAc dispersions (veneer glues). Before being pressed on, the veneer is slightly moistened to prevent any cracks or tears occurring. PUR dispersions can also be used, as they provide higher resistance to water and heat than classical PVAc veneer glues.

Edge

Edge banding for bedroom furniture

So-called zero bond lines are the benchmark in modern edge banding and represent top processing quality. Edge banding in the furniture industry places high requirements on the adhesives used. A wide range of material combinations and the specifics of manufacturing environments require sophisticated adhesive systems that tie in perfectly with the production process. As resistance to heat and humidity are not a major specification for bedroom furniture, EVA- and APAO-based hotmelts are generally the product of choice. Top-quality brands, however, use only PUR-based adhesives.

Here are some common material combinations for edge banding bedroom furniture:

  • MDF boards with ABS edges

  • chipboards with ABS edges

  • sandwich panels with ABS edges

  • sandwich panels with aluminium edges

  • and many more.

Every production process is different. Preferences, habits and experience determine the specifics of a production process. We have over 70 years of experience in the adhesives industry, giving us extensive know-how of standard processing methods and machines. Let our adhesive specialists help you analyze and optimize your individual edge banding processes.

Profile

Profile wrapping

Laminated decor skirting is a standard in bedroom furniture, and there is a huge variety of decor materials on the market. During the lamination process, air bubbles must be avoided at all costs to ensure a high-quality appearance. The adhesive used plays a decisive role here. When laminating skirting with tight radii, the adhesive must also be able to withstand the recoil strength of the decor material immediately after being glued. This requires a very high initial strength.

Reactive PUR hotmelts are the adhesives of choice for profile wrapping. Used with the right primer (when plastic or metal profiles are used), they achieve excellent bonding quality. An optimally configured wrapping line also ensures consistent bonding quality. The following material combinations are standard in bedroom furniture:

Profile materials

  • solid wood

  • wood-based materials

  • aluminium

  • plastics

Decor materials

  • CPL

  • decor paper

  • veneers

  • thermoplastic films

Our many years of experience and continuous R&D activities always keep us up to date with the latest adhesive technologies. Let our engineers help you optimize your production process. We provide adhesive systems tailored to your needs.

Assembly

Gluing dowels and furniture bodies in living room furniture

A finished piece of modular furniture has all its components joined together, generally with dowels. To achieve a high degree of stability, special dowel glues are used to attach the dowels, often mechanically with automatic dowel insertion machines. Either a very high viscosity or a low viscosity thixotropic dowel glue is used, depending on the specifications of the furniture and the related production process. Our modern dowel glues are easy to dose and provide secure adhesion over the entire lifecycle of the furniture.

Assembly bonding

Gluing offers clear benefits over drilling holes and inserting screws. Almost all kinds of material combinations can be glued together with the right assembly adhesive. Easy handling, high initial strength, and permanent, strong adhesion are further arguments in favor of gluing. Our PUR- and STP-based adhesives come in handy cartridges for assembly bonding uses. Typical applications of assembly bonding in bedroom furniture are:

  • gluing handles to cupboard doors or drawers

  • attaching skirting boards

  • mounting decor elements
