Getting to Know Padding Compound and Other Bindery Adhesives

Did you know there is more to padding compound then just sticking papers together? 

Each and every adhesive have their own unique characteristics that allow the user to produce the pads they desire.  Some users need  a glue that dries quickly while others need one that works on specific paper. Having a padding adhesive with different strengths, bonds, thicknesses and even color make a major impact on the outcome of the pad.
