Source for Edgebanding

We've got edgebanding coming loose on the dinette and vanity on our 2007 Safari, This is the plastic edging that looks like the edge of 9-ply Baltic Birch plywood. We like the look, don't want to switch it all to plain wood.

Tried to iron a loose section back down (as a test); the adhesive doesn't appear to be heat sensitive...but the edgebanding certainly is....

Appreciate any suggestions, I've been trying to find it online, no luck so far.

Check with local cabinet shops, the ones who actually make them. They seem to have sources we never can find.

If you haven't had any luck yet, try contact cement.
That is often how laminate is applied anyways.

I don't know how that edge banding was originally held in place, but most plastic edge banding is applied with heat. When the original glue fails, applying hot-melt glue to the either the banding or to the edge it is covering will often work. You apply the hot-melt glue, spread it, let it cool, and then iron the banding back in place. Make sure that the iron is not too hot. Excess hot-melt glue will squeeze out. Leave it there until it is cool and hard and then remove it with a file.

Obviously, getting the correct temperature of the iron is critical: melt the glue, but not the banding.
