PUR Case Perfect Binding ( or PUR adhesive Case bound) is now in wide use for commercial applications with printers and book publishers. PUR adhesive is the most aggressive adhesive for book binding on the market and works well on all types of paper, even aqueous coated stocks or books printed with heavy ink coverage or uncoated papers. This is of enormous benefit to projects requiring short run digitally printed books on highly coated or varnished interior pages – even synthetic materials. Houchen Bindery, Ltd. was the first company in Nebraska (2011) to invest in this technology and now has 2 machine lines offering this capability.
