Two glues are used in the perfect binding process: standard EVA hot-melt or PUR adhesive. Books that have to stand up to heavier use should be bound with PUR adhesive because of its superior strength, quality and flexibility. PUR is applied as a thin layer that allows the book to lay flatter and creates a more square backbone.
Perfect bound books that need to stand up to heavy use should be bound with PUR adhesive because of its superior strength, quality and flexibility.

Reduced inside margins mean you can carry photos, illustrations, charts and graphs across gutters. It also offers hands-free functionality, which can be a great advantage for readers following a recipe, playing a piece of music, or doing a craft project. Books with high page counts are more economical to produce with this process, since reduced margins allow for more text per page and therefore fewer pages overall.
