New level of process efficiency in bookbinding 

Advanced polymer technology-based adhesives

The digitization of production processes is also having an impact on the bookbinding industry. As cost pressures increase, bookbinders are finding it increasingly important to make their processes as efficient as possible.

With adding the new hot melt adhesive range to our product portfolio we are answering exactly these demands. These products allow a performance and cost competitive upgrade to EVA-based hot melts for the binding of soft/hard cover, perfect bound/sewn and rounded books.

The innovative hot melt range shows outstanding results in heat/cold resistance, thermal stability and application weight. Thus, setting new benchmarks for cleaner production, increased mileage and reliable bonding at a competitive cost-in-use.

Advanced polymer technology for bookbinding adhesives - Achieving performance and cost-competitive upgrade
