Gluefast's Lay Flat Glue for Labeling and Mounting Adhesive Applications
Gluefast offers the best liquid Lay Flat Glues and adhesives for labeling and mounting applications. Our water-based products have high solid and tack (stickiness) strength, a long "open time" allowing the operator ample time to properly position the label, and a smooth finish quality. When these water-based adhesives are used with our Colonel Gluer Adhesive Applicator and Adjutant Press Mounting Press, we call this team the Wrinkle Tamers! Together these products constitute an efficient labeling and mounting system suitable in the most demanding industrial and commercial operations.
For short run mounting jobs we have a simple roller kit that starts at $19.95. You can check this out here!
Using our lay flat glues will save you 80% or more compared to the heat-seal method of mounting!
