Subject: Binding heavy paper

I would like to know what experiences Bindery Prep people have had with
slick or heavy, clay-coated type paper when they want a book rebound.  We
see this type of paper in art/photography books most frequently.
        Our binder has more difficulty with this type of paper than any other, as
the Double-fan adhesive binding does not seem to hold.  Is this consistent
with other binders?  Is it possible that a different glue would help?  Our
binder is beginning to revert to oversewing on these problem books, which,
of course, creates a whole new set of problems. Anyone else experiencing
the same problems?  Anyone who isn't having trouble willing to share Binder
