Glossary of Printing Terms:
Lumbeck System

Polyvinyl acetate adhesive binding system used for brochures, books and other printing materials, in which the ends of a pile of sheets are fanned out.

After clamping, the leaves are fanned out in one direction and coated with glue. This process is then repeated on the other side.

The process is named after the bookbinder Emil Lumbeck (1886-1979).
