At this year’s LIGNA trade fair, KLEIBERIT presented interesting developments and solutions in the fields of surface finishing, surface lamination, edge banding, profile wrapping and LVT flooring adhesives. Production lines demonstrated the advantages and uses of KLEIBERIT’s HotCoating Technology, including high-gloss and super matt finishing for wood-based boards, and the roll-to-roll coating method.
Also on show worked a digital printing line that print inline and subsequently ‘hot coat’ in a single pass – a method that KLEIBERIT recently enhanced in cooperation with machine manufacturer Huser. The system’s compact integrated digital printer is worth a special mention. Embossed structures are also possible, thus opening up completely new opportunities for paper manufacturers, relating to profile wrapping and surface lamination. In future, paper laminations up to a width of 1.60m will be possible. Wide printed and coated papers hold substantial potential for the furniture industry – manufacturers can laminate large surfaces and coat edges in one go with KLEIBERIT’s technology – as well as the flooring sector. Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are currently in high demand and flooring manufacturers are calling for materials that are printable up to 2.10 meters and also have very abrasion-proof coating, a super matt finish and can be reactivated in a short-cycle press. Such papers provide a ‘soft touch’ finish that also has excellent acoustic properties and can even be embossed with deep structures. A major advantage of the HotCoating Technology is that the extremely low glossiness of the super matt surfaces is achieved by physical means – which offer numerous other benefits alongside preventing glossing– rather than with chemical matting agents. KLEIBERIT’s adhesives unit will also be showing interesting applications and solutions, such as: - The Future of Flat Lamination – Lightweight, highest surface quality, excellent processing! - Edgebanding in Premium Quality - No Compromises in Profile Wrapping – On the Safe Side with KLEIBERIT PUR-HM Adhesives! New Ideas in Flooring Design? We have the answers to your bonding questions! The design possibilities for LVT flooring are enormous. So are the bonding requirements for decorative materials with various substrates. Whether on HDF, PVC or WPC substrates - KLEIBERIT offers innovative adhesives especially for these applications. Special properties include excellent processing and above all the resistance to plasticizers – the life insurance for LVT decorative materials. For more information contact Mr Peter Mansky:
