What is Padding Adhesive?
Padding Adhesive or Padding Glue is a fast drying hot melt or water-based adhesive designed for flexibility and strength. Padding adhesive is designed to give a permanent hold. Our Padding adhesive is Non-toxic and contains No VOC’s.
Padding presses are used to bind loose pieces of paper together with a water-based padding adhesive, this process forms a pad of paper. Stacks of paper are placed in a large vice and are then clamped into place. While in the padding machine, padding glue is applied to the back edge of the paper stack using of a padding brush. Once the bind is dry, the stack of paper is removed and can be cut down to size. Padding presses are widely used by binderies, and many other companies in the bookbinding and graphics arts industry.
