Since the introduction of mechanical movable type printing by Johannes Gutenberg and the invention of lithography by Alois Senefelder, books have become firmly established in society. Books are constant companions of students, diaries and photo books preserve the most precious and significant moments in life, and novels provide relaxation during quiet hours. Even the most advanced eBook readers cannot appeal to the readers’ senses as only a printed book does. As a partner to bookbinderies, Jowat supplies adhesives for numerous applications from the first to the last page, for industry and manual trades.
In hardcover manufacturing, Jowat adhesives are the perfect solution for all applications – starting with the assembly of the book block and endsheet bonding, to attaching ribbons for bookmarks and manufacturing the cover. Just like in the production of softcovers, the properties of the adhesive play a key role. However, another essential aspect is the purpose of the product. The Application Technology Department at Jowat has many years of experience in the fi eld and knows which questions have to be clarified when choosing the suitable adhesive: Is it a children’s book? Does it come into contact with food? Will the product be exposed to high temperatures (e.g. car manuals)? What is the minimum lifetime of the book?
