Perfect binding is the style of binding used to create the flat, square spine you'd expect to see on most paperback books. It is best suited to books containing over 40 pages.

The perfect binding process that Flexpress offer uses fast and effective EVA (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate) hot-melt adhesive, the traditional form of glue which has been used to perfect bind books successfully for many decades. 

The process involves 'roughing' the spine of the book block enabling the hot melt glue to embed into the fibres of the paper which then ensures strong adhesion of the drawn on cover.

EVA hot melt adhesive dries to full strength within minutes so finished books can be handled with confidence quickly. To see how strong the finished bind is see our demonstration video.
