Apply iron-on edging with SpeedTape?

Apply iron-on edging with SpeedTape?
« on: January 17, 2018, 01:23:44 PM »
I've got a couple of small projects which need edge banding applied (about three total feet).  I've got some iron-on banding, but I've also got SpeedTape left over from another project.  Is there any problem using the SpeedTape with the un-activated glue on edge banding?

Thanks,
Brian

Edit... If it makes a difference, one piece is PVC, the other is oak.

It might work - but we don't recommend it - the bond between speed tape and unactivated adhesive may not be great, it would depend on the type of adhesive on the iron on edge banding. I believe each manufacturer that varies slightly. But it may be worth a try, and if it fails, then just iron it on at that point.
