What is Dry Mounting?
Dry mounting is a permanent process whereby a piece of artwork, photograph, poster, or material is bonded to a conservation board, museum board, or 5mm foam board using an adhesive heat-activated tissue and a hot press resulting in a flat, smooth finish. The process of dry mounting allows us to remove creases, bends, and cockles from Artwork.
How does it work?
Our Acid-Free Mount Film is a pure film adhesive. The acid-free adhesive melts as it is heated in our Hot Press Vacuum press and bonds as it cools. This bond can be reversed by re-heating the adhesive, though we would advise against this and offer no guarantees.
