Carbonless Form Padding
What is carbonless form padding?
There are a variety of choices when it comes to finishing carbonless forms. You can bind them in receipt book format with a perforation, wrap around cover, and stitched to hold the forms in the book. The Carbonless Forms can be edge glued and then have a white padding compound applied to the edge of the forms binding them into a Note Pad with several pieces of chipboard. The second piece of chip board is used as a separator between sets to avoid transferring from one set to another. Carbonless forms can be bound in coil binding, with perforations to allow for easy removal, they can also be drilled with any arrangement of holes in many different locations on the form if needed.
How are carbonless forms bound into note pad form?
The forms are edge glued with a padding compound know as Carbonless Padding Compound using a small paint brush. The forms are placed on a padding wagon and pressure is applied to the top of the pile holding all forms together. Once the forms are on the padding wagon a small paint brush is used to apply a Carbonless Padding compound to bond the sheets together. After carbonless padding Compound dries the forms are fanned apart, and a layer of chipboard is used between the groups of 50 sets for 2 and 3 part Carbonless forms and 25 sets for 4 and 5 part Carbonless Forms. The forms are then glued with a white padding compound to form the carbonless forms note pad. Each note pad contains the correct number of forms and 2 sheets of chipboard backer.
The Carbonless forms can be sequentially numbered, drilled, and may have perforations applied prior to making a note pad. The carbonless note pads are then cut apart using a padding knife which is slightly dull and will separate the carbonless note pads one at a time. Each note pad is then ready for use by you or your customer.
