Books and bound editions must meet a high durability, temperature and moisture resistance and the adhesives must give a strong adhesion to various substrates.

Intercol's extensive product portfolio has many specific adhesives that are used in the printing industry. Various products meet requirements for the highest production rates and the widest adhesion and temperature range.

In the field of page pull tests, aging and flexibility offer the various EVA. PO, and PUR hotmelt techniques many angles. PUR hot melts have the best resistance to most inks and solvents, which prevents glue errors.

Bookbinding has changed over the past decade from large print runs to small-scale production of many different editions. This change is also noticeable in the adhesives used to make books. Intercol offers a wide range of solutions for binding hardback and paperback books with sufficient adhesive strength to withstand extreme temperature and humid conditions.

Our adhesive range is built on standard products that run cleanly and adhere well to both standard and digitally printed paper. PUR hotmelts in particular solve potential adhesion problems resulting from the use of oils and coatings
