Dry mounting is an ideal technique to bond to board and flatten posters, photos and other works of art

What is Dry Mounting?

Dry Mounting is the use of a dry tissue adhesive that is activated by heat from a heat press or an iron to bond artwork or a piece of fabric to a mounting board. The tissue is placed between the object to be mounted and the board. A high temperature is used to liquefy the tissue. Depending on the type of tissue used, the bonding occurs in the press or after removal.

When is it Suitable to use Dry Mounting?

Dry mounting is primarily used to mount photographs, posters, and any art-work that is water-sensitive. This system of mounting flattens the artwork to give a clean look. It is easier, faster, and more versatile than wet mounting.

It can also be used simply to flatten and remove creases from artwork.

Dry mounting is a non-reversible process and should not be used on high value works of art of ones that have a high sentimental value. It is ideal for posters and some photographs.
