Study on the Solid Edge Banding Cracking of Panel Furniture
With the development of wood processing technology, panel furniture is getting more and more popular, where solid wood is often used for the edge banding to keep the natural wood grain, feel and colour. However, part of the panel furniture, especially that made in the south but sold to the north, has banding cracking issues due to various reasons. In this paper, on the base of comprehensive reference analysis and in-field exploration, the potential factors leading to banding cracking is studied; the influence of wood moisture content and adhesive on the cracking is specially analyzed; and the suggestions on the drying of the solid wood, glueing, manufacturing environment and process are presented. Thus, a new systematic concept to solve edge banding cracking is established, the study on which will be helpful to the development of panel furniture.
