These days, we are working with more perfect binding companies than ever. In this post, we want to focus on one of our most recommended perfect binding spine glues: BT1113.
Perfect binding is a method of book binding often used to make soft cover books. This binding method puts all book pages together, roughens and flattens the edge, then a flexible glue bonds the book cover to the spine. BT1113 is a great, flexible glue solution for soft cover book spines.
BT1113 is a premium, water white, medium speed bookbinding hot melt glue. It provides excellent adhesion to high basis weight heavily coated covers and difficult signatures. It can be trimmed in-line without build up on the trimmer knives.
This hot melt glue can be run on medium and high-speed binders such as a Horizon Binder, Mueller Martini and Sheridan.
