Our 3M™ Hot Melt Applicator PG II Speedloader with Magazine Feed is no lightweight. It's a hot melt, hi volume applicator using 120V AC / 500W power to melt, and pneumatic pressure to drive, up to 7.5 pounds of adhesive per hr and keep your high-demand production processes moving. The magazine holds up to 9 – 1"x3" adhesive sticks and the applicator holds 3 more in the chamber, for a total of 12
Holds up to 12 adhesive sticks to support continuous assembly, packaging, and other operations
Maintains a fixed 385° F (196° C) temperature for hot-melt adhesives
Trigger-control adapts flow to the task at hand
Dispenses up to 7.5 lbs. of adhesive per hour to support high-volume demands
Convenient stand holds applicator in proper standby position
Whistle While you Work
The high capacity of the 3M™ Hot Melt Applicator PG II Speedloader with Magazine Feed to provide a continuous supply of hot-melt adhesive increases productivity by reducing the reloading time. Reloading is fast and easy. As the chamber runs low, a whistling sound is heard, then the piston can be retracted that allows a fresh adhesive stick to fall into place, keeping the adhesive, and your productivity, flowing. Its balanced design is comfortable to operate in multi-station or intermittent manual applications.

Trigger Happy Applicator
This applicator is built for ease of control also, with the trigger being uniquely designed to provide variable flow control. Pulling the trigger slowly to the rear will start the adhesive flow. Increased pressure on the trigger increases the flow rate and amount of adhesive dispensed. Adhesive flow is also controlled by the type of applicator tip used and air pressure setting. This gives the operator flexibility to customize flow and minimize waste.
A fixed thermostat on the heat block automatically maintains temperature for consistent, reliable performance. The applicator also includes a bench stand to hold it in the proper position when not in use and two tips, 9921 and 9946, to help deliver the adhesive where and how needed. This tool is designed for the reliability to keep processes moving and the simplicity to keep the focus on those processes, a great solution where ever two surfaces need to be bonded together. The applicator is designed for standard-melt adhesives (melting point of approximately 350-380° F/ 177-196° C) and performs best when combined with hot melt adhesives in the 3M™ Hot Melt Adhesive Stick family.
The Cold Facts on Our Hot Melts
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.
