Foam Board

Foam Board

Mounting has become a huge part of the printing and imaging industry, and Binding101 is here to help you select the perfect mounting board and supplies for your specific needs. Mounting Board is available in a variety of styles and thicknesses, and sold in packs varying in size.

Foam Board is the most common mounting board in the market today. Different styles of Foam Board include plain foam board, heat activated foam board, self-stick foam board, biodegradable foam board, and pouch boards. Foam boards are 3/16" thick and available in white or black, as well as a variety of sizes to fit your exact needs.

Biodegradable Foam Board is an environmentally friendly foam board by the Gilman Brothers that looks, acts, and is used exactly the same as standard foam board. The only difference between Regular Foam Board and Biodegradable Foam Board is that when you dispose of the used product in a landfill, the Biodegradable Foam Board breaks down into a harmless compost in just 5 years while standard Foam Board takes approximately 450 years to fully decompose. Biodegradable Foam Board features a foam center, with 15% recycled content, that is formulated with "bio resins". Bio resins cause discarded foam board to degrade in landfills once the foam is exposed to moist bacteria rich environments. Only an environmentally harmless biomass compost remains. The Eco-friendly Foam Board also uses surface papers which are made from wood products sourced from SFI(sustainable Forest Initiation certified forests.

Gatorfoam Gator Board Gatorfoam Gator Board is a durable board that resists dents and punctures. Gator Board is great for when you need more stability than the standard Foam Board. Gator Boards are known for their stability and durability, all compacted into a 3/16" thick board -- that is the same thickness as standard foam board. Gator Boards are also available in thicker formats. Gator Board is great for presentations that will be handled often, or for documents that need the extra strength to hold up against unforeseen conditions.

Self Stick Mounting Board allows for mounting your items without and hot mounting or laminating equipment. Boards feature a cold adhesive that is pressure sensitive so all you need to do is peel the cover, line up your print, and press down (or use a small hand roller, called a brayer). Choose from 3/16" Foam Board, 3/16" Heavy Duty Gator Board, & 1/16" Photo Mounting Mat Board.

Pouch Boards are constructed from heat-activated foam boards with a film laminate hinged to the top of each board to form a pouch. Mount and laminate in a single step, by sliding a print between the board and film, then feeding it through a heated roll laminator. Choose from Foam Board, Ryno Board, Gator Board, & Paper Board.

One Pass Thin Mounting Boards are constructed of 25 Mil thick white paper board and feature a low temperature heat activated adhesive. These Thin Mounting Boards are rigid enough to stand on an easel, but thin enough for transporting several pieces to a presentation with ease.
