PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

aeCore® decorative laminate is a multi-layer rigid calendered thermoplastic material that is produced from polivinyl chloride (PVC) and is suitable for use on fine quality residential and contract furniture, fixtures and casework, and also for architectural application on columns, wainscoting, valances, cornices, interior doors and divider systems.

RECOMMENDED USES

aeCore® general purpose vinyl decorative laminate is suitable for both horizontal and vertical interior applications in commercial interiors where the surface must be both functional and durable. Typical horizontal applications include counter and table tops, contract furniture and casework, as well as store fixtures. Typical vertical applications can include wall paneling, interior doors, elevator cab interiors, cabinetry, casino slot bases, and bar fronts.

BASIC LIMITATIONS

aeCore® general purpose vinyl decorative laminate is for interior use only and is not recommended for direct application to plaster, concrete walls, or gypsum wallboard. It is not structural material and must be bonded to a suitable substrate, such as plywood, MDF or particleboard among others.

Do not subject aeCore® Laminate to extremes in temperatures higher than 275°F (135°C) for substantial periods of time, or intense, continuous, direct sunlight.

Purpose Vinyl

STORAGE AND HANDLING

aeCore® general purpose vinyl decorative laminate sheets must be stored horizontally, face up, with a caul board placed on top to preserve the material. Storing the panels in an atmospherically stabilized room is recommended to avoid extreme fluctuations of moisture.

Kerno® recommends that full-sized sheets be carried by two people with the decorative facing upward whenever possible.

INSTALLATION

All substrates to be laminated should be inspected prior to installation to ensure that they are clean and free of surface defects or particles. The protective film (peel coat) should be removed prior to inspection. All defects should be corrected before application. Material, equipment, and workmanship should conform to industry-standard practices, conditions, procedures, and recommendations specified by National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) LD3-2005 Annex A, Architectural Woodworking Institute (AWI) Quality Standards, and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) 161.2-1979 standards.

ADHESIVE

Bond with adhesives and follow the techniques recommended by the adhesive manufacturer. Recommended adhesives are permanent types, such as PU hotmelts, and contact types. Simalfa 770® adhesives are recommended for most bonding conditions.

These adhesives can be applied to the board or substrate and laminate easily using rollers or nozzles.

A short press-down time is usually sufficient to ensure a high initial strength. The hotmelt adhesives react with the humidity/moisture in the material and the temperature.

MAINTENANCE

aeCore® general purpose vinyl decorative laminate may be cleaned with a damp cloth, warm water, and a mild soap or household cleaning products. Cleansers that contain abrasives, acids, or alkalis may damage the decorative surface and are not recommended. Stubborn stains may require the use of hypochorite bleach followed by a clean water rinse.
