Bookbinding & graphic ind.

We offer a full range of adhesives for soft-cover as well as hard cover book manufacturing, providing optimal solutions for different applications and other adhesives for graphical industry.

Book binding is the process of assembling and fixing written or printed pages within a cover. In most cases, the cover is thicker than the interior pages to provide durability to the finished book. The bonding quality depends on material quality, appropriate spine preparation and gluing parameters, such as temperature of glue, amount of adhesive applied…

MITOL offers a full range of adhesives for soft-cover as well as hard cover book manufacturing, providing optimal solutions for:

– spine gluing of book block

– case making

– gauze lining
