Dala Hot Melt Glue Guns work in conjunction with Glue Gun Cartridges. The cartridges are cylindrical sticks of solid glue that melt when pushed through the glue gun.
The Dala Hot Melt Glue Gun is 20W and uses a continuous-duty heating element to melt the plastic glue, which the user pushes through the gun either with a mechanical trigger mechanism on the gun, or with direct finger pressure.
The glue is tacky when hot, and solidifies in a few seconds to one minute. Hot melt adhesives can also be applied by dipping or spraying, and are popular with hobbyists and crafters both for affixing and as an inexpensive alternative to resin casting.Note:
- This small Heat Glue Gun uses 10mm x 6mm glue gun cartridges. Not included but also available on our website.
- Once heated, the glue squeezed out of the nozzle is initially hot enough to burn and even blister skin.
IDEAL FOR: CRAFT PROJECTS, MIXED MEDIA, AND JEWELLERY MAKING
In general, hot melts are applied by extruding, rolling or spraying, and the high melt viscosity makes them ideal for porous and permeable substrates.
The melted glue will bond to an array of different substrates including rubber, ceramics, metals, plastics, glass and wood.
Use in conjunction with Dala's Glue Gun Cartridges.
