Thermal Binding Machines turn pages into a 'perfect bound' paper-book look in seconds giving your documents an extra professional appearance with a clean, perfect-bound style. Thermal Binding uses a secure heating element that melts an adhesive strip that is already inserted into a preformed cover. When the adhesive dries the pages are permanently stuck together producing documents that are great for filing, stacking and mailing. Thermal Bound Documents are permanently bound without the need for holes, tapes or fasteners, so documents stay in place securely each time. Thermal Covers are available in a number of sizes to bind documents up to 500 pages thick, and can be supplied in various finishes like LinenWeave, LeatherGrain, Silk or Gloss.
