PUR Hot Melt for Perfect Binding
Cattie Adhesives manufactures a full line of Industrial strength PUR hot melts for high speed and long run PUR hot melt BookBinding.
PUR hot melt adhesive has proven to be a great alternative to many other binding adhesives in the industry; It increases bonding performance and improves overall bookbinding quality.
PUR greatly improves the performance of page pulls and flexes to make stronger more durable books.
Books bound with PUR hot melt have higher quality and performance than similar bound books using standard EVA hot melts.
PUR is resistant to most inks and solvents. Residual solvent can migrate into the glue line which will cause an EVA hot-melt to fail. PUR hot melt solves this problem.
PUR is Strong, Flexible and has great heat and cold resistance to temperature extremes, providing benefits during shipping and storage. Books stored in cars or containers are not affected.
PUR is a 100% solid moisture-curing adhesive; so depending on the available moisture, 12 to 48 hours of curing time is needed.
