Thermal/Fastback Binding

Thermal binding,  fastback binding and heat binding are all the same, (just many different names)

Fastback binding is a thermal binding system that uses a machine to heat and apply ready-glued strips to the spine of a book or document, creating a strong and permanent binding.

Fastback binding strips are available in 3 widths for different thickness documents. The strips we stock are genuine branded products from the original manufacturers. The strips wrap around the spine giving a finished look like spine tape, but with a much stronger bond.

Max 300 sheets
