"How to Plywood Edging Using FastEdge" Review: This is a fast and simple system that allows you to band (edge) plywood in minutes instead of hours. Much easier than ripping down wood and gluing and pinning to the edge. FastCap offers this edging in real wood (both finished and unfinished) and laminate including colors, wood grain and metallic.
How thick are Fastedge and Fastcaps?
Our material thicknesses including the adhesive are as follows: PVC= .025" Unfinished Real Wood= .035" Prefinished Real Wood= .028".
It is best to buy a width a little wider than what you need so it is quick and easy to apply to the edge and trim it without having to stress about lying it down exactly right. We also strongly recommend watching ALL of our Fastedge videos (see the video tab). They are just a few minutes long and by the time you're done watching them, you'll be a Fastedge pro in no time!
You must be very careful when you are trying to clean excess adhesive off when using any kind of chemical because you run the risk of causing the Fastedge adhesive to fail and start curling up on the sides. Try using a razor blade to carefully scrape the excess adhesive.
We have 70 stock colors in our Fastcaps and Fastedge and we can also match custom colors for you. If you know the laminate or melamine brand that will make matching much easier. Call us at 1-888-443-3748 with the color information and we can see what we have available. We also sell a Sampler Pack, PVC Sampler Pack and a PVC Color Sample Chain.
