New clear face mounting adhesive

Drytac has a new mounting adhesive, called FaceMount, a 25µ optically clear polyester mounting film coated on both sides with a pressure-sensitive, solvent-based acrylic adhesive. This has a siliconised polyester release liner for protection and has permanent adhesive on both sides.

It’s been designed for the face mounting of virtually any image to clear substrates such as PetG, acrylic, Plexiglas and polycarbonate.  It is also appropriate for lenticular imaging applications and backlit display transparencies.

The mounting adhesive is said to be optically clear and so is said to be suitable for applications such as high-end proofing and giclée printing. Steve Broad, Drytac Sales Director Europe, comments, “FaceMount meets the very highest standards in clear mounting applications at a cost-effective price-point.  Once the image is applied to the surface, FaceMount will disappear and you will just be left with your original artwork.”

I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
