ABS Edge Banding

Ecologically sound and high-quality, ABS Edge Banding is a great choice. Impact-resistant, mechanically and thermally resilient, it’s a thermos plastic that offers great flexibility in its uses. In addition, ABS also offers fantastic disposal characteristics. There is no need for the time-consuming sorting or separation of edge bands from old boards before disposing of both items. Instead, they can safely be incinerated together in authorised plants in a process that doesn’t produce any chlorine compound.

If that’s not enough to convince you, ABS is also an extremely flexible material. Your edging will be highly malleable, suitable for straight panel processing as well as internal and external radii, offering almost unlimited application ability.

The ability to affix ABS edge banding to a variety of shapes and materials, and safely dispose of it without environmental impact make it ideal for a range of applications. It can be used in kitchen and bathrooms, cubicles, and both office and bedroom furniture. ABS edging is also widely used in shop fitting, exhibitions and displays, and cubicle manufacture, as well as compound doors, washroom cubicles, and even coffin construction.

Cadre Components offer ABS banding as part of both our standard stock range and special production facilities, with a varied range of colours, textures, thicknesses and widths available to suit the needs of any project.

Virtually unlimited applications can be achieved with ABS banding thanks to its extreme flexibility, making it suitable for straight panels and both internal and external radii.


Suitable for a broad range of boards, projects and items, from kitchen and bathroom furniture to washroom cubicles, composite doors and coffin manufacturing.


ABS edging is available in a an incredibly wide range of colours, widths, and thicknesses, and can be cut to whatever size you require, to match whatever materials you’re working with.

The Benefits Of ABS Edge Banding

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene edge banding, more commonly known as ABS, has a lot of great benefits. It’s highly resistant to abrasions and impacts while also being thermally and mechanically resilient. As a laminate, ABS also has the benefit of being ecologically sound. This makes it a favourite option over alternatives like PVC, which shares many of the characteristics of ABS but is (like most plastics) notorious for being environmentally unfriendly. ABS definitely comes out as the better option on ecological terms as, unlike PVC, it lacks chlorine. This means it’s an acid-free option that is by far the more environmentally friendly option. Acids in plastic are regularly responsible for a wide variety of environmental damage, so ABS is a great choice. The lower density of ABS also means it has a lighter composition than other alternatives. Despite this ABS is still a high-quality choice that offers a great finish.

The Perfect Curved Edge

The highly flexible nature of ABS edgebanding makes it incredibly easy to apply, and perfect for the creation of curved edges as well as both internal and external radii. If you’re making worktops or surfaces with a nicely curving edge, ABS is considerably easier to work with than the alternatives. The easily flexing material smoothly applies to any edge, straight or rounded. This is one reason ABS has been the favourite choice of many joiners and furniture makers around the world for several years.

The Eco-Edge

As the world’s population continues to increase, so does our waste. We consume products at an alarming rate, and balancing the ecological needs of our planet with the capitalist, consumerist nature of the modern world is tough. ABS banding is great because – at least as far as the world of polymers is concerned – it’s the most ecological material you can use. That’s because ABS is a chlorine-free polymer. It possesses similar properties to PVC but with the huge advantage that (unlike PVC), it can be incinerated along with general waste. Burning ABS doesn’t produce hazardous pollution that is toxic to the atmosphere and damages nature and humanity.
