THERMOMOUNT DRY MOUNTING ADHESIVES

A comprehensive line of dry mounting adhesives, THERMOMOUNT brand premium quality dry mount tissues and films provide a full range of options for virtually all mounting applications.  THERMOMOUNT Dry Mounting Adhesives are formulated to exacting standards for consistence of quality and performance results.  Professional bonds are achieved quickly and efficiently in any combination heat/vacuum press, mechanical dry mount press or hardbed press.  All THERMOMOUNT Dry Mounting Adhesives feature neutral pH to protect artwork from damaging acidification.

 

PROMOUNT

Dry Mount Tissue is a premium grade tissue formulated with a breathable paper base, coated on both sides with a permanent adhesive that bonds as it heats.  Neutral pH and excellent bonding characteristics, combined with its breathability make PROMOUNT the most versatile option, adaptable to most common mounting applications.  Particularly suited to plastic coated photographic papers, including RC and Cibachrome media, PROMOUNT is an ideal general purpose tissue that will successfully mount all other smooth paper artwork to a wide variety of substrates including card stock, matboard, foam board, Masonite, aluminum, glass, Plexiglas and wood.

 

ECONOMOUNT

Dry Mount Tissue is a high quality, paper based tissue coated on both sides with adhesive that bonds as it is heated.  ECONOMOUNT is an excellent, lower-cost alternative to PROMOUNT for the mounting of most materials to card stocks and clay-paper coated foam boards.  Not recommended for mounting to MDF.  Activated at 175°F, ECONOMOUNT can be removed at 210°F.  ECONOMOUNT is pH neutral and produced without the use of solvents.  ECONOMOUNT is suitable for use with plastic coated artwork (such as RC photographs).

 

VERSAMOUNT

Pure Film Dry Mount Adhesive is a heat activated, 100% pure adhesive film that melts when heated and bonds as it cools.  VERSAMOUNT remains heat-reactivatable for easy removal or for utilizing a self-trimming technique.  Because it is 100% pure adhesive, with no tissue or glassine core, small pieces can be overlapped, patched or pieced together without creating a telltale ridge.  With its ability to flow under heat and pressure, VERSAMOUNT is  ideally suited to the mounting of fabric (silk, linen, canvas, etc.) and textured artwork, filling in nooks, crannies and voids left empty by conventional dry mount tissues.  This ensures an exceptionally strong bond on difficult to mount items.  A lower activation temperature (150°F/66°C) makes VERSAMOUNT an excellent choice for heat-sensitive materials.

 

SAFEMOUNT

Dry Mount Tissue is an “archival grade”, specially formulated, buffered paper tissue coated on both sides with heat reversible adhesive.  SAFEMOUNT marries the versatility of PROMOUNT tissue to the removability of VERSAMOUNT, while providing an added barrier to material acidification.  SAFEMOUNT used in tandem with archival quality board provides a safe bond that will not attack such delicate items as fine art photographs, prints, silk, tissue and rice papers.
