Sample Book adhesives

Without the right adhesive, specific materials such as wood veneer, ceramic tile, or fabric won't tack properly to the interior of a sample book or presentation folder. For reliable adhesion, U.S. Adhesives offers sample book adhesive products that are suitable for applications in the sample book industry.

Visual quality is vital to any sales presentation, and how your glued-on samples appear in your sample book can either have a positive or negative impact on the customer. To ensure that each sample adheres smoothly to the type of substrate used in your sample book, the right type of adhesive is necessary.

For the sample book industry, we carry products that can be used for a wide variety of porous and nonporous substrates including paper, board, cloth, poly film, and foam.
