Introducing CLEVER-BIND

Now there is a true alternative to PUR when it comes to PERFECT BINDING


PUR HOT MELT has been established for quite some time and its place in the market has dramatically improved the bond strength of perfect bound spines. 

However PUR is expensive, from the expenditure on capital equipment to the unit cost of the adhesive.  Handling can also be precarious and if allowed to cure in the application equipment, maintenance and repair costs can be crippling. 


CLEVER-BIND is a new concept in spine bonding.


An adhesive with properties to include:


No special handling requirements using standard hot melt equipment or existing PUR kit - Will not cure in the application equipment.

Applied in the same manner as EVA - roller or jet

Bond strength closer to PUR than EVA

Cures in minutes - No need to bind blind and wait up to 72 hours for full PUR strength

Suitable on standard and difficult papers

Excellent heat resistance

High flexibility - giving better Lay Flat properties than PUR

Does not discolour or change in viscosity at a constant temperature.

Odour and smoke free

Lower consumption than EVA

Lower unit cost than PUR


Switch off the PUR system and start to enjoy the benefits of CLEVER-BIND
