optically bright, 100% cotton, solvent and preservative free pure acrylate adhesive (adhesive strength ≥ 4N) with delayed gluing action, pH from neutral to slightly basic, PU dust-proof coat on the reverse side, siliconized paper backing with PE coating, inner tube ø 76 mm
This fabric is coated with a solvent-free high-grade acrlylate adhesive which, because of its lightly alkaline pH value of 7.5 to 8.0, has good resistance to aging. A coating of dust-proof PU on the back of this cotton fabric prevents dust and dirt from collecting on the coating of adhesive lying just below it.
Aslan SK-F is a self-adhesive cotton fabric that is used by libraries for the reparation of book spines and picture frames. Its 1 metre width also makes it suitable for use in reinforcing maps or building plans (in parts of Berlin it is mandatory) as well as many other creative uses: applying it to a plastic film (RIGID-PVC LIGHT-BOX FILM) allows you, for instance, to create a unique lampshade.
When applying the self-adhesive material, the temperature should be at least 10 °C. Once applied, the fabric is temperature-resistant from -40 °C to +50 °C.
The special aura of a bound book derives not the least from the binding material used. It is only since the 19th century that fabric was used as binding at all; before that, the binding was primarily made of leather upon which the early versions of the fabric binding were based. It is only in the 1930´s that natural, untreated cloth binding was generally accepted. At first the cloth was either linen or cotton; later, spun rayon was also used.
Bookbinding cloth is normally produced with the so-called plain weave. In this weave, the warp threads, which traverse the entire length of the material – i.e. with the grain – are woven together with the co-called weft threads that run at right angles to the warp in an over-and-under weave.
Spun rayon is well known in the production of clothing where it is also referred to as viscose. The viscose – and here the circle is complete regarding paper – is extracted from wood pulp by means of a chemical process, spun into threads, woven into a plain weave and coloured. From the resulting fabric bookbinding cloth is produced in two more steps: it is coated on the back side with a compound consisting of starch, flour and mineral additives and subsequently laminated with paper. If the “linen” (cloth) is smoothed with a calender (a machine consisting of two heated rotating cylinders) after the lamination it will take to being printed and embossed or stamped all the better.
