Binding doesn’t get any simpler! With the GBC ThermaBind™ system, you can achieve a perfect-bound ‘paperback book look’ in seconds to give your documents a truly professional, ‘published’ feel.

It’s a perfect example of a complicated professional bindery process made simple for the office user. The secret lies in the unique, pre-formed ThermaBind™ Covers which come loaded with a high contact adhesive strip. The glue penetrates firmly into the fibres of your sheets to form a totally secure ‘spine’, exactly like a paperback book. The spine is integrated into the cover itself to form one unique piece, making the process simple, clean and quick with no need for fiddly holes, tapes or fasteners. The profile of the glue strip is designed in a ‘U’ to ensure that the first and last pages are in contact with the adhesive for 100% page security, making ThermaBind™ ideal for legal, contractual and personnel documents.

Whatever the size of your document, just follow the easy, 3-step ThermaBind™ process to ensure the best results. Simply: 1. Collate all your pages and square them up carefully before inserting them into the correct capacity of ThermaBind™ Cover. 2. Place the collated pages and covers into the unit which must be at ‘ready’ temperature status. The exact duration of each bind will depend on the model of thermal binder used. 3. Wait for the binding process ‘completion signal’ then allow the bound document to cool to ensure maximum bond strength before use (approximately 30 seconds depending on the room temperature).
