Sure-Mount® Mounting Adhesive

For a long time there has been significant debate in the industry about the various mounting choices available to the commercial framer or photographer. At the heart of the issue is the question of what type of adhesive to use and what techniques, procedures and systems should be employed for the specific adhesive chosen. The overriding concern is, of course, that the adhesive in question does the best job possible and that it is economical to use.

Our new acid-free SURE-MOUNT® universal mounting adhesive answers all the fundamental concerns and requirements of today’s professional – PLUS! In addition to providing an economical, to quality bond to virtually all common mounting materials, including "chipboard" and fabrics, SURE-MOUNT® remains reversible at all times, is acid-free/pH neutral, will not age or undergo harmful decomposition, is unaffected by heat or humidity, contains no solvents, requires no ventilation, is non-toxic and completely safe to use, sets up quickly for immediate framing and sale and, best of all, SURE-MOUNT® offers the widest choice possible of application. Roll, brush or spray SURE-MOUNT® to suit your individual production needs.

SURE-MOUNT® provides the ultimate in low-cost/high-volume mounting when used in connection with a vacuum press. If you don’t presently have a press, SURE-MOUNT® can be used in combination with a brayer and/or be left to dry under "weighted" glass with excellent results. As your mounting volume increases, you may want to add a top-quality, professional PRINT MOUNT VACUUM PRESS® for a thoroughly integrated mounting system. With the vacuum press, drying/set time is reduced, the adhesive is distributed evenly and air bubbles and wrinkles disappear simply and quickly in one time-saving step.

Whether your mounting needs are large or small, if you’re mounting posters or photographs, canvas or silk, paper stock, foamboard or wood, SURE-MOUNT® will provide the economical bond you demand. Order today and see why SURE-MOUNT® is the all-purpose mounting adhesive for the picture framing and photographic industries.
