For over 50 years, REHAU‘s RAUKANTEX edgeband solutions have been flexibly meeting the needs of designers and furniture manufacturers with a comprehensive range that meets all aesthetic and functional requirements. The company offers more than 2,000 decors in over 200,000 variants, three different processing options, and the perfect match with RAUVISIO surfaces and panels from the market’s leading players. The RAUKANTEX family is the result of REHAU’s expertise in developing innovative solutions in terms of processing and products, for a modern furniture production. Aiming at creating a perfect union between edge and panel, for the best aesthetic result, REHAU’s edgebands are optimized for different edging technologies and allow reaching the highest levels of quality, no matter the adopted solution.
REHAU’s edgeband solutions include the classic edgeband with primer, RAUKANTEX pure, for those who prefers the traditional processing with glue, and two different edgebands with zero-joint effect: RAUKANTEX plus, recently updated with a colour-matched TPU functional layer, ideal for the joint-free edging beginners, and the nowadays standard for perfect, lasting components RAUKANTEX pro, featuring a 100% polymer material functional layer. The seamless bond between edge and panel offered by RAUKENTEX plus and pro edgebands can be achieved through a variety of processing technologies, from the efficient laser to the cost-effective Hot Air and infrared NIR infrared ones.
More than 50 years after the introduction of the first RAUKANTEX edgebands, REHAU’s innovation has never stopped and today looks ahead with groundbreaking solutions for contemporary furniture production, responding to modern society issues such as sustainability and safety. RAUKANTEX eco & RAUKANTEX evo edgebands are the emblem of REHAU’s progress in conscious furniture design and the perfect example of its concrete circular economy, being composed of 50% of recycled material from post-industrial waste, the former, and entirely made from renewable raw materials that avoid the additional demand for crude oil, the latter. RAUKANTEX fire-protect edgebands are meant instead to satisfy the fire protection theme with a self-extinguishing solution for wall coverings and halogen-free flame retardants furniture that meet the most stringent European directives.
To meet current interior design trends with style and functionality, REHAU also offers the new generation of RAUKANTEX scratch.protect matt edgebands, extremely durable, anti-fingerprint and soft-touch, RAUKANTEX Wood veneered edgebands, ideal for finishing wood panels with a component that looks, feels and smells natural, and RAUKANTEX folding edgings, that can be shaped during production to create special fronts without handles, with beveled edges or soft-forming. The Creative Design Collection range offers glass-effect options with a metallic look, luminescent edgebands and 3D decors, to unleash interior designers’ creativity.
REHAU provides a practical online tool to simplify the choice from such a wide range of solutions, featuring all the possible matches between RAUKANTEX edgings and more than 16,000 laminate panels and tops from all the national and international leading manufacturers.

Finally, REHAU ensures that the entire program of standard edgebands is always ready for the shipping, in short delivery times, even in small quantities starting from 1 m.
