Plastic-Comb Binding

Plastic-comb binding is a mechanical type of binding suitable for the production of books & manuals. It’s main advantages are that it allows the removal and replacement of any leaves after binding, and it enables the bound item to be opened flat at any page, allowing hands-free use of the document.

However, because of the solid spine, this method does not allow the free ‘flip-over’ of leaves in the way that Wire-o & Spiral binding does. The combs can be obtained in a range of colours.

Its main disadvantage is that there is no automated machinery for the insertion of the combs, and so if a fast turnaround of the job is required this method is best suited for a limited number of documents.
