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.
is ideal for:
and Heavyweight Posters
and Fiber based Photographs
and Magazine Pages
and Decorative Papers
. . . or simply mounting many items in the shortest
period of time!

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.
