Description

3:1 Pitch Plastic Coil is a durable, flexible, and an affordable alternative to other binding methods. It will not chip, crack, corrode or distort over time, and will retain its shape even with repeated use. This 3:1 pitch plastic coil binding is also known as Spiralastic®, Spiral Binding, Color Coil or Spiral Coil.

This coil is perfect for binding large diameter plastic coil projects. 3:1 Pitch Coil is easier to use for large diameter books because there are fewer holes to insert the coil through. 3:1 pitch 6.5mm x 5.5mm oval punching dies are recommended, especially with larger coil (25mm & up).

Your plastic coil bound documents will be so flexible that they can open to a full 360° (front-to-back) and lie perfectly flat. The multiple hole format makes the binding extra strong and the plastic coil's "memory" resists bending. With its lightweight construction it's great for mailing.

Available in a variety of colors and sizes to finish almost any job, our plastic coil is CPSIA compliant (lead and phthalate free).

  • White
  • Navy

For special colors we can custom PMS color match for you.

Plastic coil binding, also called Spiral Binding, is an incredibly durable and flexible way to bind books, making it one of the most popular document binding solutions on the market today.

A binding coil looks like a phone cord, with a continuous plastic spine that spins around into many loops. The coils are spun into several closely spaced holes that are either round or oval shaped, punched along the edge of a book.

They are made of a very flexible plastic material that can bend in all directions, and still retain its original shape. This makes them very durable, and able to withstand heavy handling.

Binding coils come in a large variety of colors and sizes to bind books up to about 440 sheets, or a 1-3/4” thick stack.

To bind with spiral binding, you will need a coil binding machine, the coils themselves, and a pair of cutter crimper pliers. You can also use an electric coil inserter for higher volumes to drastically increase the inserting speed.

Just punch your pages, roll the coil through the holes, and then crimp in the ends. Once bound, your books can lay completely flat and pages can turn a full 360°.

Spiral Coil Binding FAQs

Hey everyone, it’s Mallory from Binding101 and today I am going to answer your FAQs about spiral coil binding. Let’s get started…

1. What does “pitch” mean?
In simple terms, “pitch” refers to the hole spacing. 4:1 pitch is the standard for spiral binding coils, which means that there are 4 holes for every inch of binding. So an 11” binding edge would have either 43 or 44 holes, depending on the margin siz...

Hey everyone, it’s Mallory from Binding101 and today I am going to answer your FAQs about spiral coil binding. Let’s get started…

1. What does “pitch” mean?
In simple terms, “pitch” refers to the hole spacing. 4:1 pitch is the standard for spiral binding coils, which means that there are 4 holes for every inch of binding. So an 11” binding edge would have either 43 or 44 holes, depending on the margin size. 5:1 is also available for specialty needs.


2. How do I choose a coil size?
Lay your stack of papers, including covers, on a table and measure the thickness, without pressing the stack down. Add 1/8 of an inch to that measurement and THAt is your recommended binding size. You can also use our handy chart that shows the capacity for each size, which I will link to below.

3. Can I get a bulk discount?
Absolutely! We can usually begin offering discounted prices when you buy 10 or more boxes of coils. Call or email us to see if your order will qualify.

4. What gauge is the coil?
The gauge of the coil –which refers to the thickness of the plastic—starts at 63 and thickens as the coils get larger, topping off at 103 gauge. I will link below to a full chart.

5. What colors are available?
We stock white, black, maroon, red, clear, blue, navy, and forest green binding coils. We also have special order colors that can usually be made in just a few days, including purple, pink, yellow, brown, gold, pearl white, many shades of blue, and more.

6. What is the largest book I can make with coil?
The largest binding coil is 50mm or 2”, which will hold about 440 sheets of copy paper, or about a 1 and ¾ inch thick book.

Welcome to Binding101! Today we are going to share 5 reasons why our customers feel Spiral Binding Coils are the best way to bind documents.

#1 - They are durable!
Binding coils are made of a flexible plastic that bounces back. You can bend them any which way, helicopter them, or use them as cat toys and they will still bounce-back to their original shape.

Reason #2 - They come in a ton of colors!
You can choose from 8 stocked colors, as well as more than 15 special order colors that can usually be made in just a few days. This includes pink coils, yellows, a large range of blues, and many more.

Reason #3 – They are easy to bind with!
Even though there is the added step over wire to crimp in the ends of coils, our customers still agree that it is a simpler way to bind because you don’t have to close them around your pages, so the coil is always perfectly round and consistent.

#4 – They are affordable!
Binding coils are priced in the middle range of the punch-and-bind solutions, starting at only about 5 cents each.

And reason #5 – They are more fun!

So what do you think? Do you agree, or do you have a different favorite? Comment below or email us at info@binding101.com for a chance to be featured on our blog.
