    Would it be better using pre-glued edging and heating it or just using the contact adhesive as advised earlier, or eash as good as the other?

    Apply ABS edging

    That looks quite good, have you used this glue film yourself? Works well? Looking at ABS edging as its a Grey Beige Zebrano MFC board that planning on using and thats what was shown for it to give best finish, only iron on stuff (not even sure it is iron on) i have found is a pre-glued 0.4mm...

    Apply ABS edging

    Thanks again for the info. I came across the manual cutters when searching the web earlier, look ideal. I had a search but could only find the .4 edging pre-glued, do you know if you can get the 2mm pre-glued also? Would the edging not burn or melt if it was trimmed with a router?

    Apply ABS edging

    Hi, Looking to see how to fit 2mm or 0.4mm ABS edging to MFC boards. From info seen so far it looks like i would need an edge bander, is this so or is there another way it can be done (easier for the diy'er)?

    Thanks Chems, will have a look at the fixboard. If using mr-mdf do you still need to seal the edges with pva/water mix or is this not needed?

Another though i had was to just use mdf...
