    Counter and Box Toe Material

    The new and improved VERGE provides all the positives that made VERGE successful and more. VERGE contains approximately 50% recycled content making it as environmentally friendly as it is cost efficient. The addition of a Polyester backing to VERGE provides improved stability and an extended heat tolerance for better processing. The Polyester also provides more efficient transfer of heat and an improved skive-ability. In addition to all the performance advantages of unmatched resiliency, shape retention and moisture resistance VERGE is 100% recyclable and provides a very green and cost effective solution.

    WORK PREPARATION
    ______________________________________________________

    CUTTING: VERGE can be cut in any direction. This will allow for optimum cutting yields.

    HEAT ACTIVATION: Recommend Bond Line temperature of 90°C/ 194°F but product is designed to work within a range of 80°C to 100°C.

    COLD MOLD: Recommend to use cold mold with temperature of 0°C to -5°C and sufficient dwell time to secure minimum bond-line temperature of 30°C or less.

     

    ZERO WASTE PROGRAM
