The Virtually Invisible Edging Solution.

Advancements in technology have enabled Sage Doors to manufacture melamine doors with no glue line; using Sage Doors Invisedge, your doors will have a virtually seamless!

What is Invisedge? Invisedge is a new edgebanding technology, in which  the edge tape is melted directly to the edge of the board. This eliminates the need for standard bonding agents such as glue to be used to attached the edging to the board and enables us to manufacture doors with no ugly glue lines!  

Sage Doors has invested into the future by using the next generation of plastic edging – polypropylene (PP). The options in New Zealand till now have been PVC and ABS.

Polypropylene has many advantages over other options: it is more environmentally friendly, it shrinks less, is more chemical resistant, and - most importantly - is very colourfast: 

  • It is an environmentally friendly choice. Less energy is required to manufacture PP and when incinerated, it produces water and carbon dioxide. 
  • There is less shrinkage than with PVC or ABS. 
  •  It is more resistant to household chemicals and most laboratory chemicals, making it a durable choice for both domestic and commercial environments. It also has a higher heat resistance.
  •  MKT Alpha-Tape® PP invisedge  is much more colourfast than traditional PVC or ABS. It passed the 'Blue Wool Scale' test with flying colours! The ‘Blue Wool Scale’ is a test in which researchers take two identical samples, one of which is placed in the dark as a control, and the other experiences the equivalent to years of sunlight over a three-month period.  A standard Blue Wool Test Card is placed under the same light conditions with the test samples. The amount of fading of the sample is then evaluated by comparing it to the original sample. A rating between 0 and 8 is given to each of the samples in the test. Zero means it has very poor colourfastness, while a rating of eight means it is considered colourfast. Our edging is classified as being above 8, meaning that your nice white edging will stay white and will not discolour over years of use. See the 'Technical Data' for a graph. 

MKT Alpha-Tape®PP Invisedge features a special functional layer, co-extruded with the tape at its manufacturing stage, which eliminates the need for standard bonding agents or glues to be used during the manufacturing. This functional layer is melted with high temperatures, directly bonding it to the panel. Thanks to the colour matching between the functional layer, the top layer of the edge banding and the panel, MKT Alpha-Tape®PP Invisedge provides a virtually invisible, homogeneous and seamless transition between face of the panel and the edge. 

Sage Doors have chosen to follow the lead of Europe in using 1mm edging. Due to the superior edge bond, there is no advantage in durability to use a thicker edge.
