Padding press machines are used to create pads of paper. Stacks of paper are placed in a padding machine that clamps them tightly into place. Padding compound is then applied by the user (or machine, for electric models) to the back edge of the paper stack using a padding brush. Once the pad glue is dry, the stack of paper is removed, separated, and can be cut down to size. Padding is widely used through a variety of industries including educational, legal, real estate, printing, engineering, healthcare and more. Almost everyone has a pad of paper within reach at all times, making the demand for padded paper very high. Create quality pads of paper with the Binding101 padding presses and supplies.
