Speed Mount is ideal for light and heavyweight posters, RC and fiber based photographs, newspaper and magazine pages, fabrics and decorative papers and surface laminating.
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.
Speed Mount is 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 addiion, if removal is necessary, mountings can be removed simply by the use of a heat gun or hair dryer.
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.
This new heat-activated dry mount foam board may be used at the lowest mounting temperatures currently recommended in the industry today, 150º. Though Speed Mount is versatile in that it bonds at all temperatures between 150º and 190º, 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.
The industry average temperature for most dry mounting is 185-190º - with Speed Mount it is 150-170º. 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 time or temperature will generally create better bonds.
