I've seen it used on the inside of a door to cover a goof (or maybe old hinge hole). It's as thick as 5 pieces of printer paper, so not completely invisible, but not very noticeable. Best to try a test piece and see if it's acceptable to you..
It is recommended to paint a wood veneer edgebanding rather than Melamine edgebanding.
It's 0.48 mm (1/64 inch) or as thick as 5 pieces of printer paper.
This is not available in a 3/4" but after applying the 13/16", they excess can be trimmed off.
Yes, if you choose a paint specifically for over plastic application. I know many spray paints designed for plastic surfaces, but you would have to ask about brush on paints for plastic. Latex is not going to be a good choice for this product.
most hot air guns are too hot, and melt the material. Just stay with the iron, it is simple.
Yes. I set mine to the "wool" setting and it worked fine.
Also, you can use a regular household iron without steam. Expect not to use the iron again on clothes, obviously.
This post was so old, that I assume you have already solved this problem, but you don't need a router to finish the edges. A simple paint scraper, sharpened with a file works great. Then you just use a sanding block with fine sandpaper to lightly sand the edges.
