DuraBooks look and feel like ordinary books, but are constructed of tear- and stain-resistant synthetic paper with a unique patented binding. This enables them to withstand a wide variety of real-life elements, such as water,dirt, grease, and humidity. While the paper feels and looks likehigh-quality coated art stock, DuraBooks lend themselves to cleaning and handling that far exceeds the abilities of a standard paperback.
The paper used to create the DuraBooks series is unique. Made with synthetics constructed of plastic resins and inorganic fillers, it does not use any wood pulp or cotton fiber. The plastic is extruded and stretched before its surface is treated to enhance printing performance.
