You will need
- - PVC edge;
- - bar with glued sandpaper;
- - the file;
- - iron or a heat gun;
- - glue the fabric.
Inspect the internal part of the edge. If you see that it has adhesive coating, take an iron and turn it to the mode of "synthetic". Put an edge on the clean end of the DSP or in the fresh clean cut, purified from wood dust. Edge have to close the whole cut, in width it is wider than countertops, so make it easy.
Begin to heat the edge of the iron. You can use the newspaper as a gasket between the iron and the edge. When you feel that edge starting to heat up and stick, keep the iron on and pre-heated the edge smooth using a cloth. Smooth, while the edge cools down. Repeat along the entire length.
In the absence of the inner surface of the PVC edges of the adhesive layer, use any universal adhesive, for example, "Moment". Before you apply the glue to the surface edges and the end of the DSP, verify cleared if the end of a dust and sawdust. Are they flat and smooth.
Apply glue to both surfaces and wait a while, according to the instructions of the glue. Then, tightly clutching the edge of the end panels, glue it while smoothing out a folded several times with a soft cloth or special roller.
Inspect tightly glued edge if there is somewhere a loose fit. If such places do exist – repeat this operation. Take the file, and only when all are securely glued, the protruding edge, the edge can be chipped. For this file, keep both hands and his press plane on the projection of the edges from Kromidovo the end and break off to the side of the countertop along the entire length.
Finish off with a cleaved end edge of the cloth.
If you carefully glued the edge, when it is chipping, the line of cleavage will never go on the already glued part.
Instead of iron it is possible to use construction Hairdryer. In this case, the edge of the warm side of the adhesive to such a condition, at which it becomes soft, and then applied it to the surface of the chipboard.
Advice 2 : How to stick edging tape
Edging tape is designed for pasting the ends of furniture made of particle Board. It increases their strength, protecting from moisture and preventing evaporation of the impregnation. It can be applied to the restoration of such furniture. To cope with this material is capable of even a novice carpenter. It is often made of decorative paper, which is impregnated with special resins.
You will need
- - edging tape;
- - detail of particle Board:
- - a sharp knife;
- - scissors:
- - abrasive sponge;
- round screwdriver;
- metal long ruler;
- - iron.
Select edge bandings. It is of various widths. Pick one that matches not only in color but also in thickness of the part. Usually its width is from 1.8 to 4.5 cm Strip may be slightly wider than the surface you intend to cover, but not much.
Clean the edge of the plywood. Remove the dust from it. Start with the end which will be less noticeable. It is necessary to hide the joints of tapes. The pasted over surface should not have significant irregularities. Of course, the tape of them will be cut out, but large bumps and notches better to remove.
Carefully inspect the ribbon. It should not be joints, which are formed by connecting the individual strips in the roll. Usually these joints are invisible. However, they can greatly damage the appearance of the product, if you are going on the tape, to apply any coating.
Measure the length and width of the pasted over surface. Take the tape around 0.3 cm wider end and approximately 2.5 mm long. It is easier to do with a ballpoint pen on the iron range. Trim the ribbon is also better on the line with a sharp knife, like a Shoe. The blade must be sharpened. However, it is possible and to cut with scissors.
Regulator of iron supply on the division of the "cotton" and allow it to heat up. First, glue the rounded corners. Determine the midline of the face, it can even draw throughout. Find the center edge and apply it to the end of the part, aligning the middle lines. Slowly iron the first one half of the tape, and then another. Need to press hard enough to make the adhesive layer is melted, and the tape lay on the rounded corner smoothly and without wrinkles. Pay special attention to the edges. If they press enough, the tape will break away from the details. While the glue is hot, apply the coating using a round screwdriver or other similar tool.
Allow the glue to cool for ten minutes. Then re-heat the iron and smooth the tape to the edges of the upper and lower surfaces of the part. The iron thus it is better to put at an angle to the line of coupling was more subtle. Press the iron hard, but not dramatically. After the glue has cooled down again, remove the excess tape. For cutting the edging strip at a right angle there are special tools but you can do enough with a sharp knife. Before you cut the extra edge pieces, don't forget to look at the direction of the fibers of the workpiece. If they are aimed down, a better cut from right to left, and if up — on the contrary.
Abrade the surface of the plywood along the edges of the edging strip. Remove all irregularities. Hold the sponge directly against the corners of the part. Instead of a sponge you can use a piece of sandpaper with Velcro attached to the bar.
Advice 3 : How to glue metal edge strip
The need to refurbish the furniture from chipboard occurs often enough. This task is easy even for a person who has a very vague idea about carpentry. Modern materials, including edging tape, significantly accelerate and simplify the process. Edging tape is used for the end treatment. Make it from paper impregnated with resin.
You will need
- - furniture that you want to restore;
- - edging tape;
- - sandpaper;
- - the range;
- - abrasive sponge;
- - iron
- - round metallic rod;
- - unnecessary Board.
Measure the thickness of the Board that you have to paste over it. In construction shops for sale edging tape in different widths, from 1.8 to 4.5 cm You need this, which would be slightly wider than the end of your worktops or cupboard doors. Colors of edging strip are very diverse, and you can always pick it up on their own taste and in accordance with the features of your interior.
Before restoration detail to be put in order. In particular, before to paste the ends of the edging strip, remove from them all impurities. From visible surface defects is also better to get rid of. The end should be as straight as possible, so that the processing of the sandpaper in this case is not hurt.
Decide what end you start to glue the edge banding tape. Even a perfectly fitting joints should not be visible to everyone, so to start to hang better from that end which is the least visible. For example, it may be part of the countertop, against the wall, or the bottom side of the door.
The joints can be on the tape. They are obtained when separate pieces connected to the coil. It does not play any role, if you are going to apply the coating on top of the edging strip. In this case, to cut the ribbon as you like. If the coating is assumed, mark the strips so that their length was less than the distance between the joints.
Ballpoint pen a metal bar set on the edge of the ribbon strips of the desired size. You can first draw the strip strictly by the length and width of the end, and then on the long sides to add allowances of approximately 1.5-2mm and is short — 1-1. 5 mm.
Cut strips with scissors or a sharp knife. A metal ruler will come in handy in this case, the cut will be more smooth.
Turn on the iron and heat it to a temperature at which you usually iron cotton products. Divide the height of the end face in half. Draw a middle line around the perimeter of the part. Edging tape is also split into two equal parts the median line throughout its length.
Start at the ends with rounded corners. Apply edge tape to one of these corners to the middle line at the end and the ribbon matched. Iron the edge from the middle line to the upper or lower workpiece surface, strongly pressing iron. Then similarly fix the second half. Under the influence of temperature the adhesive layer melts and the tape is tightly attached to the product. Carefully smooth out all the bumps round metal rod.
Before to make up for the allowances that allow the product to cool slightly. Leave him alone for ten minutes. Then fold the allowances on the top and bottom surfaces and smoothen them with iron. Better to put it on the stock not the entire surface, and the angle. The line would be more durable and elegant.
Again, allow the product to cool. Cut with a knife extra pieces of edging strip. Trim is necessary with respect to the direction of fibers of the product. Right to left is easier to cut when the fibers are directed downwards.
Abrasive sponge or piece of sandpaper smoothen the surface along the edge. Moving the sponge is better in one direction. For example, along the long sides. It is desirable to remove all the irregularities, although the mirror surface in this case is not particularly needed.
A piece of sandpaper can be attached to a small bar. As a fixing element suitable bilateral Velcro.
