Re: [BKARTS] laminating museum board

I would use the 3M 568 cold mount pressure sensitive adhesive, see link below. Comes in 11" and 23" high rolls. If you have a press with rollers you can run it through, great. It'll save you a lot of physical effort. Otherwise just lay the pieces on the roll and cut apart with a knife. Then stack in a nipping type press and leave for a while. Note, this acrylic based adhesive will also leave some gunk on your boardshear...


I would stay away from any water soluble adhesives as it will be much more susceptible to warping.
