Glue Guns

To aid in the bonding of materials, hot glue guns use hot-melt glue sticks to produce a regulated flow of hot-melt adhesive. Glue sticks have a longer shelf life, are easier to dispose of, and require less drying or curing time than solvent-based adhesives. Variable-setting glue guns are available for use on heat-sensitive materials such as textiles, foam materials, and plastics.
