3M™ Hot Melt Applicator Quadrack™ Converter 9275 adds Quadrack™ capabilities to standard 3M™ TC and LT hot melt applicators. This converter increases the loading capacities to these applicators, maximizing working time and reducing frequent reloading upon exhausting shorter hot melt material.
Offers an increase in loading capacity for standard 3M™ Hot Melt Applicators TC and LT
Made from high-impact, durable plastic to withstand years of use and rugged working conditions
Easy installation for part replacement or an addition to standard TC and LT hot melt applicators
Combined with palm trigger increases control and flow of the application of hot melt adhesive
The 3M™ Hot Melt Applicator Quadrack™ Converter 9275 adds a whole new dimension to our TC and LT hot melt applicators. Our innovative Quadrack™ application attachment system utilizes standard melt, thermoplastic resin glue sticks 5/8-inch in diameter and up to 8-inches long. This system reduces reloading time and, when combined with the palm trigger system, eliminates the need to forcibly press on the adhesive with your thumb. The exterior design is constructed from rugged plastic, enabling it to withstand difficult work environments. Its ease of operation and installation make our Quadrack converter a highly-prized addition to standard TC and LT applicators.

What is Hot Melt?
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. 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 various 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, in most cases just a few seconds. Hot-melt applicators are widely used in industry, crafts, home, and work with materials ranging from paper and lace to wood and some metals.
