About Hot Melt Applicators
Hot-melt adhesive applicators, commonly called "glue guns," are tools used to apply liquefied thermoplastic adhesives and are available in low and high-temperature versions. Low-temperature adhesive applicators operate at approximately 250°F (121°C) and are beneficial when bonding heat sensitive materials such as electronics, plastics, and cloth. High-temperature applicators operate at a minimal temperature of approximately 380°F (193°C) and can dispense adhesives that produce a stronger bond than low-temperature adhesives. The applicator creates a flow of adhesive when a solidified adhesive stick is fed into the heat chamber, where it is melted using a fixed-temperature heating element. The molten adhesive is then extruded through a nozzle by either pneumatic pressure, a mechanical trigger mechanism, or with pressure applied directly on the stick.
Nozzles can be changed to dispense adhesive in a manner that meets a variety of requirements; from a thin, wide strip for carton sealing, to a narrow, thicker bead for bonding wood, composites, or metal. Nozzles are typically metal and become extremely hot during use, which can quickly burn skin. Once dispensed from the applicator, the adhesive generally sets quickly, ranging from a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on the adhesive formula. Hot-melt applicators are widely used in industry, crafts, home, and work with materials ranging from paper and lace to wood and metal.
