Technical materials

Technical fabrics and materials significantly promote the stability of the book and thus support the durability and longevity of books. Hinges and re-inforcements are often made of these products and hence they are widely used in the restoration of books. We offer a large selection of mull (gauze), schirting (calico), backliner, Molton, crepe paper and other fabrics.

Technical materials for bookbinding

To make books durable and functional, technical materials such as stitching gauze, shirting, hinge cloth, crepe paper, etc. are used.

They are usually used to reinforce the endpapers in the fold and to glue behind the spines to form the hinge to the book cover. We supply all these materials and many more by the metre from log rolls or cut into narrow rolls according to your requirements.

Technical materials for restoration

Technical materials are also indispensable in restoration. These include, for example, nonwovens for paper restoration as a separating material between blotting boards, for pressing/weighting glued papers, even with excess adhesive, as an intermediate layer for laminations and as a backing material for washing papers, nonwovens for filtering impurities from liquids, needle felt for moistening and drying, filtering and padding, screen cloth for chamfering and much more. But it also includes products such as Japanese papers, blotting board, Tyvek, Hostaphan film and many more.
