A property of paper or paperboard that determines the speed and strength of a bond generated by the application of an adhesive to the paper surface. Glueability is an important consideration in the manufacture of paper and paperboards to be used as cartons or other packaging. The adhesive used to glue the sides of the box together must maintain a strong bond both when the carton is empty, and when it is full. Glueability is also an issue in the binding of books and other publications.
