N-190  Frame Mounting TapeFrame Mounting Tape

Product Code: N-190

Rejuvenate all your frames by replacing the double sided tape that holds the RISO ScreenMaster in place. By replacing the tape as required, your frames will last for ever.


Leave your screen on the frame until just before you remove the mesh and re-use the frame. This will stop dust and fibres sticking to the exposed tape - reusing the number of uses before re taping is required.


Important Note

Do not use any general double sided tape as the adhesion may be too great and cause damage to your screens when removing from the frame. In addition if adhesion is too low the mesh may come off, or move on, the frame whilst printing.

Key Features


Perfect adhesion levels - not too sticky

Restores any frame to new - saves costs




When Frame Mounting Tape begins to loose adhesion, renew by firstly removing existing tape, where possible, by peeling off frame. If tape can not be removed simply tape over the existing frame with a second layer.

Apply the tape to the back of frame, leaving the top white paper layer in place, cut or tear to size as required.

Peel the protective white cover layer off the tape immediately before use.

What temperature do I set the press to?

Do I need to add water and/or use the steam option?

Why is steam coming from the design?

How long do I set for - when do I know the prints are set?

What happens if I don't set the inks for long enough?


Q) What temperature do I set the press to?
You must adjust the press to suite the type of fabric as overheating may cause burning of the fabric.
Cotton = cotton setting with Cotton/ polyester = poly setting

If unsure it's always best to start at a lower setting and test the first garment, you can always increase the setting slightly after you begin if the first prints are not heating the garment.

Never overheat the garment as this will cause burning to the fabric - it's better to set for 15-20 seconds with a short 5 second break and repeat a few times than try to set for 1 minute continuously.

Q) Do I need to add water and/or use the steam option?
No there is no need to use the steam option, the press will turn on and work normally without water.
As you are trying to eliminate the water based medium from the ink and dry the print out, steam will make this process very difficult.

Q) Why is steam coming from the design?
This is the water based medium heating up and coming out of the design as steam - this is normal.
Steam starts to appear once the design comes up to temperature, then starts to slow and disappear half way through the setting process.

If a print is completely dry (more than 5 days old) no steam may appear at all and will require setting for 30-40 seconds only. If a print is wet and no stream is present you will need to increase the temperature of the press.

Q) How long do I set for - when do I know the prints are set?
How long is a piece of string? Generally speaking, the first 20 seconds of the setting process brings the ink and garment up to temperature, the next 20 seconds eliminates the water based medium (steam rises), the next 20 seconds starts the pigment activation and setting of the ink.
- Large or solid designs will require a longer setting period as there is more volume of ink to activate and set.

A minimum of 1 minute is normally required for almost any print, increasing up to 3 minutes for wet prints.

As the actual timing varies on the design size, how long since it's been printed and the volume of ink in the design. A simple rule to start with is that when steam stops rising you are half way through the setting process.
e.g. If steam stops 
rising after 40 seconds (2 presses), your setting time is 1 minute 20 seconds (4 presses).

Q) What happens if I don't set the inks for long enough?
After 5 minutes the inks will not readily wash out of the garment and are starting to air dry. When washed, water will begin to attack the un activated pigments dilute the medium coating the fibres of the fabric. It's this removal of the pigments which causes the design to fade
Further washing will continue the fading process for up to 10 washes, where no more pigment can be removed
