Edgebanding with Laminate

      For good adhesion, prime the laminate with contact cement before edgebanding. October 19, 2013

I am using a Holz-Her edge bander with Doris-25 adhesive cartridges to apply plastic laminate strips to IPB underlayment. I'm not getting good adhesion on the laminate. Any suggestions?

From Contributor O:
Are you priming the laminate? We have found that to be a necessity.

From the original questioner:
What do you use? Jowat water base primer has been suggested.

From Contributor B:
We spray the backside of the laminate with solvent based contact cement and let it dry before sending it through the edgebander. It works well for us.

From the original questioner:
Thanks everyone. I'm using the spray for the laminate first and it really works. I will try the Doris next time as it saves another step.
