Plastikoil Made in UK

 

 

 

PDC manufacture Plastikoil here in the UK at our extrusion and forming facility in Perivale West London. Plastikoil is the brand name for the consumables used with a document binding style known as Coil Binding or Spiral Binding . Using Coil Binding will ensure that whatever the type or size of document you are binding, it will always look highly professional. Spiral bound documents are simple to put together
and easy to edit when required. Coil bound documents will open and lay flat, better than any
other style of binding. Spiral bound documents are virtually indestructible, making  them
ideal for whatever type of document you want to create.

Plastikoil Sizes & Box Quantities:

 

Once you have decided on the colours that you need, then you need to decide on the right size (diameter) of Coil you will need for the document you are binding. We manufacture a range of sizes from 6mm through to 50mm, 16 spiral sizes in total. So if you are binding anything from a few sheets up to over 400* sheets, we have a Coil size to suit.

Coil size guide

 

The table above details illustrations of each of the 16 sizes of Coil we manufacture (drawing not to scale).
Underneath each illustration you will find a note detailing the number of single sheets that can be bound with each Coil size, this is based on 80gsm stock. In addition we have included an approximate book thickness.

To make your selection even easier, we have created a Coil size guide which you can  download now or alternatively  just request  a ready to use printed and bound version.

If you are not sure, please don’t forget that we are here to help, just call 020 8810 5770 or email

 Bulk Pack Quantities

 

 

In our most popular sizes, we supply in Bulk pack quantities. Bulk packs simply contain more Coils which
means that we can reduce the amount of packaging we use. That’s good news for the environment
and our customers. Bulk packs attract a further discount from our standard packs, so you save money and we do a little bit more for the environment.

Plastikoil Length & Pitch:

 

 

Plastikoil Length:

 

PDC manufacture Coil to suit all standard paper sizes (A5, A4 and A3). However we can manufacture
any length that you need between 160mm up to one metre. So whether you need standard or special
length Coil, just ask and we can produce to your exact requirements.


Plastikoil Pitch:

The final consideration when ordering your Plastikoil, is the pitch that the Coil is made in. All this means is that the Coil will be made so that it will spin easily into the holes that you punch in your document. Depending on the type of machine you are using, the shape of the hole will be either round or oval (double D shape). Both shapes of hole work well, but if you are creating a document with a lot of pages, then we would generally recommend an oval hole pattern. Oval hole patterns make the Coil insertion process a lot easier.

 

 

 Available Pitches

 

 

Anyway, back to hole Pitch: We manufacture three pitches of Coil. Primarily a 4:1” Pitch (0.2475”). A 4:1” Pitch is now the most commonly used pitch of Coil. So if you have recently bought your punching machine or the tooling that goes in it, it will generally be 4:1”Pitch. The next pitch Coil that we produce is a 6mm pitch, this is no longer widely used and will generally be used with machines purchased from manufacturers like Renz, it will still work well and we can supply in any size and length. Finally we produce a 3:1” Pitch Coil. A 3:1” Pitch hole is generally associated with Wire-O binding not Coil binding.  However this hole pitch is used by customers who already have Wire-O punching equipment and are not ready or do not want  to move to a 4:1” or 6mm Pitch. The other users are those that need to produce a lot of large documents that will require them using coil sizes from 25mm up to 50mm. Whilst using other pitches (especially in an oval hole format) is possible, the 3:1” hole size that will be used is nothing like the small round or square holes used for regular Wire-O binding, instead it wil be an oval hole shape, usually 6.5 x 5.5mm big, using this size and pitch of hole, makes inserting larger Coils quick and simple.
