I have a particle board shelf where the vinyl lamination has partially
come off on the front of it (1/2" height strip that runs for the 24"
length of the shelf) I'm trying to fix it, but I am unsure of what
type of glue was originally used.
The existing glue dried white, if that is any help :(
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to spot repair the vinyl
lamination that is lifting? The lamination came off the glue because
we were pulling a cardboard box from the shelf and it was catching the
edge of the vinyl and eventually peeled part off about a 12" section of
it. There is no glue on the vinyl, it is all still on the particle
IIUC you have vinyl edge-banding coming off a melamine board. It is normally
glued on with hot melt glue so sticking it back is as easy as pie. A clothes
iron, set not too hot will warm the glue enough to press it back on. a piece
of paper will keep the glue off the iron. Trim the edge with a sharp knife
or very fine abrasive paper if you need to.
