What is Foam Board?
Foam Board is a sheet of foam with paper laminated front and back. It's light, rigid, easy to cut and relatively cheap. Foam board is ideal for all non-archival mounting purposes. Conveniently lightweight yet sturdy enough to resist denting. Designed to facilitate clean, crisp cuts and edges. Have more questions? Check out our updated Matboard Help Center!

Bainbridge Introduces: Speed Mount ~ 15 Seconds @ 150 Degrees
FAST! Speed Mount heat-activated foam board now makes dry mounting your artwork quicker than ever. You can mount paper art in just 15 seconds using Speed Mount and your mechanical press . . . or as little as 2 minutes in most vacuum presses. Simply size, tack and mount.
EASY TO USE! Pre-coated on one side with a new technologically advanced heat -activated adhesive that is permanent, pH neutral, dry and tack-free. It is breathable so it may be used for all types of mountings from porous paper to nonporous resin-coated (RC) photographs. Perfect for productions and poster shops where mounting needs to be clean, fast and effortless. In addition, if removal is necessary, mountings can be removed simply by the use of a heat gun or hair dryer.
ULTRA SMOOTH! The ultra smooth adhesive coating makes it a perfect surface for mounting photographs, particularly high gloss RC photos. The smoother surface and lower recommended temperature give greater control over the dreaded "orange peel" effect also making this a great mounting surface for thin posters, magazine pages and newsprint.
LOW TEMPERATURE! This new heat-activated dry mount foam board may be used at the lowest mounting temperatures currently recommended in the industry today, 150 degrees. Though Speed Mount is versatile in that it bonds at all temperatures between 150 and 190 degrees, lower selected temperatures limit adhesive absorption making dry mounting safer for many items. Some projects may require higher temperature settings and/or longer dwell times to ensure the best bond possible.
. . . or simply mounting many items in the shortest period of time!
Both FedEx & UPS classify this size product as "OVERSIZED" and charge more for shipping by both ground and air delivery. FedEx & UPS bill this size product for shipping at a weight that is greater than the actual weight of the package. Click here for a detailed explanation of "OVERSIZED" packages.
The industry average temperature for most dry mounting is 185-190 degrees - with Speed Mount it is 150-170 degrees. The industry average mounting time for mechanical presses is 1-3 minutes - with Speed Mount it is 15-30 seconds! The industry average time for vacuum presses is 3-5 minutes - with Speed Mount it is 2-4 minutes!
Increasing either the time or the temperature will generally create better bonds. The time charts reflects release film or release paper being used in the mounting package. If a release board is introduced into the mounting package additional time could be necessary.
AVAILABLE SIZES: Speed Mount Heat-Activated Foam board comes in 1/8" thickness, in 32" x 40".
