Fastback® Perfectback™ TA Temperature Activated Strips for Model 20 (Price per Case)


The collection of Fastback® Perfectback™ binding strips are unique, in that they allow you to use your own custom wrap-around cover without any specialty perfect binding equipment. Instead, just pair with your Model 20 tape binding machine. These particular tape binding strips are called Perfectback™ TA strips, which stands for "temperature activated", meaning that the adhesive on them is activated by the heat of your machine. Because these book strips require heat, it is not recommended for heat-sensitive covers or documents. Your cover is bound securely to the spine of your book block when you buy Fastback® Perfectback™ TA strips online. Perfect back strips are available in either narrow, medium, or wide strip widths for different capacity books, and are 11" long for standard letter size paper.

Product Description


Fastback® Perfectback™ TA Strips use a heat activated adhesive to bind the book block to the cover, the same adhesive used to bind the book block ("TA" stands for "temperature activated"). The final step is done in your Fastback® 20 machine, permanently attaching the spine of the book block to the cover. Covers using heat-sensitive inks, or digitally printed covers are not recommended for this product. The TA strip is the quickest way to create a durably bound book.

The Fastback® Perfectback™ binding strips let you create perfect bound books (also called soft cover binding) using your Fastback® Model 20 binding machine. Use your own custom wrap-around covers to create the exact look you want, without compromise. Covers can be offset, ink-jet, or laser printed.
