For the production of glued and fanapart bond sets
When there is a requirement to glue a two part set of bond paper, the Inercote and Superflex process is not applicable. This is due to there being no middle sheet onto which Inercote can be applied. This is why we have developed the Howrex system.
Before collation, either the top sheet or the bottom sheet of the set should be fanned out on the bench into steps of 1/8th inch, and Howrex release agent applied to either the top side of the first sheet or the bottom side of the last sheet. The Howrex release agent effectively repels the subsequent adhesive to allow separation to take place. Howrex adhesive is then applied to the collated sheets. Once dry the pad will fanapart into two part glued sets.
The Howrex system has numerous applications with difficult or unusual collations e.g. CB, CFB etc. or sets of action paper. Howrex release agent is available in aerosol spray, paste and grease to be applied by hand or dry offset.
