The Gilman Brothers Company has announced the introduction of MountCor, a new, low-temperature, heat-activated adhesive foamboard for picture framing and sign/display mounting applications. According to the company, MountCor features a specially formulated, pH neutral adhesive that activates at a very low temperature, in a short period of time––as low as 130°F, for 30 seconds, in a mechanical or vacuum press, and at speeds up to 10 feet per minute in a roll laminator, with no adhesive transfer to the heated rollers (time and temperatures may vary based on equipment and materials). This fast, low-temp activation makes MountCor well suited to mounting sensitive materials such as inkjet prints and photographic papers, as well as all coated papers, posters, color laser prints, and more.
MountCor also incorporates a unique Air Release technology that ensures bubble-free mounting by allowing any air trapped between the art and the foamboard to easily escape before the adhesive fully bonds. Gilman explains that MountCor’s Air Release system is engineered so that there is no adhesive texture transfer under heat and pressure, delivering smooth results.
Finally, MountCor features a built-in release liner with a printed squaring grid. This is designed to make mounting easier by allowing quick print positioning. The release liner also protects the work throughout the production cycle and can be easily removed prior to final application.
MountCor offers users a low-temperature, fast, one-step mounting solution with strong, permanent bonding to a wide range of materials. It is now available through Gilman Brothers’ North American and international distributors.
