WHAT IS IT FOR?  Dry mounting, using a hot glass press or heated roller laminator.

SuperStick uses an environmentally friendly thermoplastic coating on both faces of the porous paper base. The bond increases as it cools and it helps to prevent curl if you place a weight on the workpiece while it cools. Operating temperature is 88- 93°C with dwell time of 1.5-2 minutes. The only real difference between SuperStick and what you may be using now is that it is less costly (so is ideal for volume work).

DID YOU KNOW? DMT is also known as NTMT or New Technology Dry Mounting Tissue
 
 
EARLY DRY MOUNTING PRESS
The device shown here is a very early dry mounting press, from the days when photos were very small. The bit with the prong has holes and is connected to a gas tap and lit. The other part has an opening right through and slides onto the prong.
When hot, it is placed on the photo, with what was probably a shellac-coated paper between it and the backing board. It was rocked side-to-side to bond the photo down.
