Designed for Archival Projects

Ordinary white glues contain acid that causes paper to deteriorate over time. But the Lineco Books by Hand Adhesive is pH neutral and acid-free to prevent yellowing or embrittlement. It dries clear as glass without discoloration. The adhesive creates long-lasting flexible bonds so your projects can withstand being opened and closed without cracking or flaking. You can trust this glue to preserve family photo albums, scrapbooks, memory books, and more for generations.

Fast Drying and Water Soluble Formula

This adhesive provides a combination of fast drying time and repositionability perfect for paper crafting. It sets up quickly, so elements stay put immediately without shifting. Yet when wet, the glue dissolves in water. So you can thin it to extend the open time and make adjustments. Once dry, the crystal clear bond is permanent and moisture resistant. The professional quality formula is ideal for precision paper projects.

Ideal for Bookbinding and Repairs

Book lovers will find this adhesive perfect for binding books and repairing beloved volumes. Apply a thin coat along the book spine before clamping the pages together. Use the glue for hinge repairs and reattaching loose pages, bookplates, or endsheets. This archival adhesive creates flexible bonds that allow the book to be opened and shut without re-cracking. It also works beautifully to adhere book cover fabric.

Non-Warping for Photos and Documents

Mounting photos and ephemera? This adhesive won’t warp or discolor delicate papers. The acid-free formula is safe for irreplaceable documents like old letters and records. Scrapbookers will appreciate how the glue dries clear and flat for mounting photos and memorabilia in albums. Framed photos and prints stay flat against the glass when mounted with thiswarp-resistant glue.
