Thermaline: Document Reprocessor's Patented Book Restoration Process
Thermaline® is a vacuum freeze-drying process in which wet books are restrained from warping and distorting as water is removed. The process compresses books back into their natural shapes, minimizing cover board warpage. It allows most books to be returned directly to shelves with no additional restoration required.
Thermaline Restores Wet Books Without Warping
The Thermaline® process does more than restrain books from distortiion during drying: It also compresses books back into a more natural shape while minimizing cover board warpage. The result is that Thermaline® reduces the need to rebind books by up to 90%, as a consequence of controlled straightening during freeze-drying and compression.
