With regard to hot glue bindings failing after application of Kapco
covers, those glue bindings, I am advised, fail because of the lack
of air circulation even when Mylar tape is applied to the spine
area.  We do this as a preventive measure (Mylar) and use quite a
bit of Kapco EZ bind tape in our mendery, though we do not use Kapco
covers.  Demco representatives are the source of this information,
given in a mends presentation.
