State of the Art Kolbus KM-473 Adhesive Binder

Rasch Graphic Services has set the standard for adhesive binding! With our adhesive binder, we offer both PUR and Hot Melt Perfect Binding. PUR offers the user a product with significantly higher page pulls and flex capability, thereby enhancing the layflat effect of the book. PUR also offers a more consistent strength when used in varying temperature extremes. RGS uses only the very best and highest quality EVA hot melts when producing a perfect bound book. This type of adhesive has been the industry standard for many decades and with proper application provides the user with a product that is durable and useable even minutes after application.

Whether your choice is PUR binding or EVA hot melt binding, letting RGS make your books means total confidence that your book project will be done right the first time and remain durable, while at the same time affordable, for your clients. Either choice at Rasch Graphic Services means quality, economy and durability. Rasch Graphic Services has set the standard for perfect binding! With our Kolbus KM-473. Perfect Binder, we're binding better and faster than ever! Bigger books. Thicker books. All with the latest quality controls and binding options.
