I am in the process of mounting Inkjet Papers on acid free material.
Does anybody tried to dry mount Ilford or Epson papers.
If so, any hint about temperature and time?

Thanks

I have been using the spray mount method. With Ilford paper, the only adhesive that has worked for me is 3m Photo Mount spray, when sprayed on both the board and back of the print. All other sprays have developed bubels in the print.

Hope it helps

Use PMA (it's a wide double stick tape), it will hold for years, never release, no problem with over spray and is repositionable. The 3M spray will bubble, over time and if the ambeint temp and humidity change alot around it. I own a frame shop and in 2000 and the first part of 2001 we lost about $4000 of work that was spray mounted than peeled & bubbled. I called 3M their anwser was "sorry pal". We followed the directions on the can, so we use the PMA and if it is cheap down and dirty mounting we use the super 77 spray it never peels or bubbles, but once it makes contact you cant move it. Good luck!

Is PMA a brand or just a description? Where would a person find it?

Thanks for the information.
Is there a reason why you prefer PMA over dry mounting tissue for heat press?
I have a Seall jumbo 160 press from the "old time" of silver base photo papers...
Is it speed of use, cost, convenience?

1) No special machine
2) No special tools (the applicator is in the box)
3) It comes in a roll and takes up no space
4) It is repositionable (you can move it until you put pressure on it
5) No messy over spray
6) It takes less than 5 minutes to do a mount

Ya need more reasons?
