Heat Activated Single-Step® Foam Board

Available in Black or White

When it comes to ease of use and versatility, EnCore® SingleStep® Foam Board delivers impressive performance.

The board is coated on one side with a heat-activated adhesive for mounting at a low temperature forming a smooth, permanent bond. SingleStep speeds up the mounting process by eliminating the time consuming measuring, cutting, and tacking of dry mounting tissue. Art bonds in minutes at a safe operating temperature of 180°F. It’s “Memory” Core bounces back after handling or cutting. Lower heat and pressure activate the specially formulated adhesive for risk-free bonding.

Our SingleStep Heat Activated Foam Boards are Easy to Use:

We do not recommend SingleStep for use with resin-coated (RC) photographs.
