Bookbinding and Print Finishing

Bound to last from the first page to the very last, we produce hot melts that provide outstanding spine gluing, side gluing, end gluing, casing in and tip-in applications. Our bookbinding adhesives give superior page pull strength and assured bonding, creating durable spines that can be trimmed just 30 seconds after binding.

Created using high-quality raw materials and an advanced manufacturing process, BAMFutura bookbinding adhesive provides superior page pull strength and assured bonding across all stocks from newsprint to heavy gloss and coated papers. The BAMFutura range is also compatible with fast or slow running machines.

Our bookbinding adhesive range offers a host of other quality assured products designed to provide strong adhesion and high page pull strength whilst allowing in-line trimming to be safely undertaken without smearing. Side glue adhesives can be supplied for use with most binding machines and again provide an application that can be accurately applied and cleanly trimmed. Permanent and peelable adhesives meanwhile are manufactured for the production of tip-ins. These provide customers with the ability to bond cards, coins and sachets to all paper and cover stocks without any staining or tearing.

Our high-quality hot melt adhesives provide peelable adhesion for all tip-in requirements. They allow cards, coins and a range of sachets to be safely bonded to a vast selection of paper and card materials and eliminate the risk of staining and tearing that can arise with less advanced adhesives.

As a value-adding adhesives manufacturer, Beardow Adams has developed hot melt adhesives that can easily be removed to support the increasing requirement for print and paper to be recycled. Furthermore, we have the expertise to work with customers to replace multiple adhesives with single advanced hot melt products.
