 Arrestox for Book Cover Publishing

The most recognized name in the industry, Arrestox B cloth is extremely durable and performs well in a wide range of publishing and turned edge applications. Coated book cloth provides durability and longevity- and the coating makes it easy to process and decorate, while providing the sophisticated look and feel of cloth. Our coated cover materials are used in a wide assortment of book cover, specialty packaging, and mechanical binding applications.

Advantages & Benefits in Printable Cloth Applications

Arrestox cloth is easy to decorate, and can be blind and foil-stamped, or even used in screen printing. This gives the flexibility to use the technique of your choice to create a unique look and consumer appeal for book cover and packaging applications. Our linen and vellum finishes can have the look and feel of a premium woven fabric, while still providing excellent stain and mildew resistance. It also resists scuffs and abrasions, and protects against UV light and water damage.
