Question (WOODWEB Member) :
We have a situation where we installed a slab door with 3mm edgebanding directly next to a hot oven and the closest edge became unglued (walnut veneer, with MDF core). Is this just a case of faulty gluing procedure? It looks like there is enough glue to my eye. Or should we highlight appliance locations and use a different glue that is not heat activated? If so, what is that glue?
From contributor N:
Unfortunately that's the trouble with hot melt glue in an edgebander. It's not always a problem, it depends how the oven seals and how long the customer leaves the door open. Sometimes you can put a metal heat shield between the two. Otherwise you may want to consider leaving a little more space between them. I have never had any let go on me, maybe it's luck. It's one of those things that I would expect to come up at some point. Titebond extend wood glue is supposed to be heat resistant to some level. If itís a wood edge, maybe try using that where you may have an issue.
