Spiral Binding Plastic Coils (Special 12" Long, 5:1 Pitch) (Box of 100)


Be the first to write a review

Although not as popular as our standard 4:1 pitch coil bindings, these 5:1 pitch spiral binding plastic coils feature a more tightly-spaced coil that goes into book pages that have been punched with five holes per inch. This unique spiral coil hole pattern is great for print shops or binderies that already have the specialty binding equipment, or for those who are looking for an even tighter bound look for your books. Just like normal plastic coil bindings, these special 5:1 pitch coils are made of the same flexible and durable plastic that is meant to withstand heavy use and bounce-back to its original shape. More common in the print industry than anywhere else, you can buy 5:1 spiral binding plastic coils online in either black or white, and in sizes from 6mm to 20mm. All sizes are packaged with 100 coils per box.

Product Description

Our special 5:1 pitch spiral binding coils offer a tighter, more condensed look. Although not nearly as common as our standard 4:1 pitch coils, some printers and binderies prefer these more tightly wound plastic coil binders, and may have the specialized equipment for them. 5:1 binding coils are typically ran through smaller holes, so inserting can be more difficult, and the closer spacing may limit the capabilities. These special spaced spiral coils are still flexible and very durable, and come in several sizes from 6mm to 20mm in either white or black.
