Cost: Thermal binding tape elements are priced slightly higher than punch and bind elements such as plastic comb, plastic coil and twin loop wire but have a drastically lower overall cost due to reduced time and labor
Thermal wraparound covers are similar to thermal tape. Heat is applied to the adhesive-coated spine of a cover. Heat activates the adhesive, allowing the pages to be bound to the wraparound cover. These systems have openings up to a two inches, and can bind more than one document at a time depending on the thickness. Binding time is approximately 30 seconds
