Dry Lam E2450-R overview

  • 1Description

This 24.5" x 50 yd roll of Colortac Dry Mounting Tissue from Dry Lam is a general-purpose tissue used to mount photographs, ink-jet prints, and flat art onto mat boards, museum boards, and other types of materials for display. Because the dry mounting tissue has a low heat activation of 165°, it is ideal for RC, fiber-based prints, and materials that are sensitive to heat.

The dry mounting tissue maintains a neutral pH balance, which will not harm stored material over time. If a mounting board becomes frayed or damaged, the tissue can be reheated to 200°; therefore, the print is removed from the mounting board, so it can be remounted to new board.

Dry Lam E2450-R reviews

Colortac Dry Mounting Tissue (24.5" x 50 yd Roll) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will buy this product again I was looking for a dry mount tissue compatable with ink jet photo paper and this is the one. For more than half the price of the others it does the same job. I mount prints at approx. 180 degrees or less for 1 1/2 minutes for a complete bond and no damage to to print. The tissue looks like white Kraft paper, not translucent like all the other tissues I have used but don't let that bother you. It works exactly the same. I always put pressure on the print untill it cools but don't know if it is necessary. Good stuff--good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dry Mount for Inkjet Prints Speaking from experience, using dry mount tissue designed for standard papers with inkjet papers risks producing cracks and bubbles. That's because these tissues have a bonding temperature in the vicinity of 180 F. Colortac bonds at 165 F which is perfectly safe for a 30 to 40 second interval in the press. I obtain consistently flat, permanent bonds with this product and never any damage to my prints. Furthermore, Colortac is relatively inexpensive and you can count on B&H to ship immediately. I am not aware of any drawbacks to using this fine product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent mounting tissue I use Colortac to mount large (24 x 60) fine art ink jet photos. The low temp (I use 170 degrees) does not effect the inks but adheres well to museum board and foamcore. My press is 18 x 24 so it takes several passes. This can lead to minor overlap marks. I just put the print back in the press and the mark is gone. Removal (at 210 degrees) is not quite so easy but doable (thus they can call it archival, but most experts say no mounting tissue is truely archival). It is definitly the best low temp tissue I've seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked well with Epson inkjet prints I needed to mount about 30 prints for an exhibition in Chicago. The prints were made on Epson Signature Worthy Premium Luster paper with Ultrachrome K3 inks.I had several people tell me NOT to use heat with EPSON paper and ink...that if the temp got to hot, the inks could literally boil on the paper.I found that this dry mount tissue worked well, however. I kept the temperature of the press between 160 and 175 and could see no adverse effect on the prints. The mounting was flawless. I would recommend this. The only problem I ran into was when mounting very large prints. Humidity in the boards (I live in Houston where it's very humid) made the boards warp when hot. Between 150 and 160 degrees, the warp was enough to pull the prints away from the boards; I noticed a little bubbling. The solution was simple, however. I dialed up the temp a bit and put the work back in the press. At 160 degrees, everything was bulletproof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this mounting tissue Until I found this product my mounting press needed to be set at 210 degrees, this was fine when mounting my black and white photos, color RC paper and prints from my Epson printer looked like there was a slight color shift because of the high temperature. Colortac Mounting tissue only needs a setting of 165 degrees and I see no color shift at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product Roll product eleminates the need to have many different sizes and works very well for non standard size prints. Product is easy to store and easy to use.
