Overview

When binding hard cover, soft cover, or notepads with your Fastbind binding machines, we recommend you use manufacturer-direct hot melt binding glue to go along with it. We offer both EVA and PUR glue options, so you can choose the best option for your specific applications and machinery. Both glues are granulated into small pellets. EVA glue (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) is the traditional option, and has a very fast curing time, for a fast and strong bind. It has been used in the binding industry for many years, and emits very little odor, making it a very safe binding glue. PUR glue (Polyurethane Reactive) is more often used for difficult-to-bind paper stocks and materials, bonding through a chemical reaction. It is becoming more popular and the standard for perfect binding, as it typically requires less glue to bind, and allows for more versatility in the materials being bound. PUR glue is also more flexible than EVA, so allows for a bit more movement without cracking. Both glues are packaged in bags, and are small round pellets. The EVA dries clear, while the PUR is a bit more white.

Description

Fastbind hot melt binding glue is a staple in the book binding industry, and will work great for binding hard cover books, soft cover books (also called perfect bound books), tape-bound books (also called strip bound books), as well as even tear-off notepads. Choose from either EVA glue or PUR glue, both of which have different benefits and restrictions so you can select the best option for your application and machinery being used. Both of the EVA and PUR glues we offers are granulated, small pellets that are easy to dispense into your glue tank so you can add just the right amount of glue for your job, without over-filling. Each glue is only compatible with certain machines, so be sure to check your machine for compatibility before buying.
