How to repair melamine edging on shelves and doors

Posted by info@cgflatpack.com on June 16, 2012 at 9:25 PM

Melamine strips on shelving and doors can become chipped and torn. Remove the damaged edge and iron on a new one costing about $10 for a 10 metre roll 21mm wide. Iron-on melamine strip is used to edge timber-based products such as MDF, particleboard or plywood shelving. It comes in a range of colours and veneer finishes and is backed with hot-melt adhesive that bonds when heated with an iron. Remove the old strip by softening the adhesive with a hot iron. Peel off with a scraper, remove remaining adhesive then use 80 grit abrasive paper wrapped around a cork sanding block to smooth, ready for new edging.
