Why Use Book Wings?:

Book wings are an excellent tool for preserving the top or bottom of book spines where book-repair tape would be hard to use. They are a must for any book binding repair kit!

These book wings are available in Bookguard™ cloth colors or in clear vinyl, depending on your needs.

If you're not sure which material or color is best for you, then buy our starter kit; it includes two wings of each cloth color and two clear vinyl wings (18 total).

Book Wing Material

The Premium Cloth Book Repair Wings are produced from the same material as our Cloth Book Repair Tape. Here's everything you need to know about it:

1. It protects books longer, because it has a high resistance to scuffs and abrasion due to its thickness (it's a hefty 13-mils thick; masking tapes tend to be around 5 mils thick).

2. It has superior binding strength, because it's made of quality, vinyl-coated cotton that has 45 lbs per inch tensile strength (you'll see the high thread count of the material when you cut a piece with scissors).

3. Its high conformability enables it to easily wrap around corners and curves, while not cracking or becoming brittle over time (you'll see this happen in lower quality binding tapes. I personally shudder in church every time I see that messy duct tape cracking and peeling off the book spine it tried to fix).

4. Its archival quality means it permanently sticks, and wont fade or yellow over time (the pressure-sensitive adhesive is ph neutral and acid free).

5. It looks sharp and professional. The non-reflective matte color doesn't lose its vibrancy over time, because the color is impregnated into the cloth material.

 

Our Clear Vinyl Book Repair Wings are made from a tough, 3.5-mil clear polyethylene which ensures that it is highly conformable because it has a degree of "stretchiness" similar to a rubber band. With a thick-coat (archival safe) acrylic adhesive, these wings won't "ooze" on any surface to which it is applied. It won't shrink, crack, yellow, or dry out for years. Initially repositionable, this clear book-binding tape sets permanently in 24 hours. It also has a neutral PH, so you won't have to worry about dirty adhesive edges.
