Default MLCS 7733 Edge banding strong enough?

I am wondering if I use MLCS 7733 to edge all around the plywood where edge piece maybe about 2" (or wider) be strong enough for book shelves type of project?

See the attached picture (not to scale) for reference.

Many thanks in advance!

Hey, Tim; the major advantage is that aligning the edge with the shelf is simplified for glueing (plus strength, obviously).
My usual treatment is to make the front and sometimes back lip/edge taller than (hanging below the shelf, not above it) the shelf...the extra ht. giving additional stiffness to a plywood shelf. But with that said, I've been giving serious thought to doing as you're suggesting. I'm getting tired of the glue-up alignment issue without a register point!

By the way, the alignment T&G doesn't need to be that massive..." 2" or more" That's a Hell of a shelf edge!
I could park a brewski on that...

Stick; I agree, but that's not practical for narrow edging.

In my opinion, it would have to be really narrow Dan like a 1/4". At 1/2" you're good to go. There's a lot of machining in using the suggested bit where a slot cutter or saw blade is quick and easy (and cheaper).

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

OK, I surrender. That's a very helpful piece(s) of info Stick and Chuck.
I'd actually been thinking about it after I posted that last comment (Ok 2nd to last...picky picky) and had come up with a couple of solutions.
I think if I edge routed my edging then ripped it off the flat stock, I'd avoid having to deal with getting close to the whirly bits(?)...

that's how ya do it...
or router table and long pieces w/ vertical and horizontal feather boards... push/feed till you can pull the balance of the baning through...
I also believe splineing is stronger than that banding bit...

that edge banding bits tends to tear splinters out/off of the ply's veneer so when the banding is installed you have another issue to deal with...
