Safe, flexible and resistant to damage – meet Plastic Binding Coils

Plastic coil binding is a method of document spine binding similar to wire loop binding and plastic comb binding. Holes are punched down the margin of your document and a plastic spiral is bound into the holes to form a strong, safe and permanent spine binding. It has benefits such as lay-flat pages and a wide range of colours available to order.

There are many advantages over traditional plastic comb and binding wire. The coils are made from a robust plastic that will bend and flex easily without cracking or altering shape. Often seen in educational environments, it combines the security of wire (pages can’t be added or removed after binding) with the softer feel and ease of use of plastic combs.

  • Stocked in three colours, black, white and clear available to order quickly in 36 standard colours
  • Hole pitch 6mm (approx 4:1)
  • Fast next day delivery on stocked coils in all sizes.
  • 48 or 49 holes per A4 long edge, giving far greater strength than binding wire
  • Coil binding machines sold separately, click here to view range.
  • Plastic thickness of coil is 2.7mm
  • Crimp the end of coil to finish the binding process with crimping pliers
  • Child safe for use in schools and educational environments, no dangerous wires.
  • Secure; once bound cannot be opened again
  • Heavy duty. Bend it, pull it and it can be crushed without breaking or losing shape

Larger sizes and different colours are available with a short lead time. Coils are particularly relevant in high-use situations when being used with big manuals as they hold very thick documents stable with all the advantages of lay flat binding.

Coil is no more complicated than wire or comb binding, the same principles of needing to punch the paper, insert the binding method (plastic coils are simply twisted into the punched document by spinning rollers on a machine or by hand) and then close or fix the binder.

This last step in the binding process is to crimp the ends of the coil to keep the plastic coil secure in the document. This is done with a simple pair of crimping pliers. Once the document has been finished it is secure and cannot be easily taken apart.
