TREKU is used in edge-banding machines in order to achieve neat glued joints and panel surfaces as well as smooth edges. The separating agents prevents adhesive residues from adhering to the material surfaces by cooling the glue down. The flat scrapers and buffing wheels in the machine will then remove any last glue residues without sticking together in the process.
Thanks to the strong lubricating effect machining tools are protected from wear and tear and from soiling. The lubricant film is particularly suited for sensitive surfaces with protective film because the film is prevented from shifting. The separating agent will not damage varnish-, acrylic-, PVC-, melamine- and other surfaces, also not under the protective films. After buffing it will hardly be visible on most surface patterns, which means that the panels will also not be rejected by automatic edge- and optical surface inspection systems. The panels can subsequently be recoated with most 3D- and UV-cured varnishes.
Time- cost- and material savings
The separating agent can be used in larger containers because it is label-free. This saves additional time because, with the mobilaTECT system, a single jerrican can supply the machine from one central point. Hence, the frequent replacement of the many individual bottles is no longer necessary. Also, the separating agent will last longer because the mobilaTECT nozzles apply it sparingly (< 1 litre per nozzle per 15,000 running metres is required). Machining tools, such as profile cutters and scrapers, have longer service lives – they are protected from plastic- and adhesive adhesions. Fibre- and sisal wheel brushes last until their wear limit because they are always clean and won’t stick together.
Employee- and environmental protection
Working safely and protecting health and environment – TREKU is based on renewable resources, water-based, label-free, VOC-free, non-flammable, and no hazardous good. HAZMAT handling is avoided, transport is made easier, and storage in an explosion-proof area is not necessary.
