Cloth substitutes:  A  material  made up of strong fibre like unlaundered paper is substituted for binder's  cloth. This substitute looks strong enough but is in fact weaker than cloth. 

Paper: Cover boards are  covered with some colourful or cancy thicker paper, thus giving a pleasing look and as well as protecting the cardboard. Many children's books and other popular books are bound in this manner. Wooden boards were used before paper boards were available but now a variety of paper boards is available. They are straw board, mill board, grey board, split boards.

Mill Board: Mill board is manufactured from old hump ropes  and other rags etc. Fine quality mill board are highly calendered. Calendering adds strength to  boards and thus they are made tough and hard wearing. This is a good quality popular board used for standard, books. 

Grey board: This is a medium quality board as it is compact and hardwearing.

Split boards: Split boards are generally used for reinforced library  binding. Thick black mill board is glued to thick straw board to get these split boards.
