Traditionally F Grade Buckram, Transitioning to Comparable Library Summit Material.
(Buckram may be available, inquire about color choice, quantity, and price upgrade)

Grade F Buckram is the strongest and best lasting of traditional hardcover material choices. It meets all Library Binding Institute (LBI) performance standards for this group of hard cover, as well as ANSI and NISO standards for library binding. One look at a well-used library shelf and you will see the proof that it truly stands the test of time. Under normal library conditions, this material is expected to last 50-100 years. The basis of this buckram is poly cotton impregnated with a 100% aqueous acrylic coating which makes for a very durable book. This material is water, stain and mildew resistant and has excellent scuff, abrasion and crack resistance. Because of the basically waterproof finish, this binding can be wiped down for clean up resulting from spills and dirt resulting from heavy handling. Library Summit material is an excellent alternative that looks like buckram. It has been tested for many things. However, it is new enough that it has not integrated it into library binding standards (last update 2018) yet. Here is more technical information and some more answers about Library Summit compared to Buckram. As Library Summit is made to look like buckram, references to "buckram" elsewhere refer to Library Summit, or buckram if still available at an upcharge.
