oa Graphix - PUR is the next big thing : finishing
That's according to Glyn Gilbert, press and postpress general manager of Ferrostaal Equipment Solutions incorporating Printing Products. Gilbert says when it comes to finishing, processes are becoming more automated, quicker and more efficient, but the biggest advance has been the move towards PUR (polyurethane) adhesives. Perfect bound books are traditionally bound using hotmelt (EVA) glues. However, there has recently been a trend to move to PUR adhesives, especially for bound items that have a longer "shelf" life, such as coffee table books, dictionaries and photobooks, which are also gaining in popularity.
