Other glues dry too fast to accommodate the glossiness of coated paper and cannot penetrate the fibres. What makes PUR different from other glue is that it has a slower reaction time and allows itself to seep into the fibres of coated stock more effectively. Before the BQ-160 PUR, PUR glue required large machinery that had a long set-up time with large amounts of waste if used on short-run production. The BQ-160 PUR now eliminates the need for large format perfect binders, giving you the freedom to produce as little or as many perfect binded books as needed, yet still capable of handling polyurethane reactive glue.
