A Glue Gun for Every Need

Aug 29, 2007
When the majority of the people in the world think about a glue gun, they are likely thinking about the tool that is primarily used for crafts. These are wonderful for creating crafts of all types and securing items together easily and quickly, but there are other types that can handle much harder and larger projects!

Industrial Needs

An industrial glue gun can be used in many different ways. A lot of companies use them to seal packages. They can even be used to fix dents in cars. These heavy duty dispensers come with several options and attachments that can be used. Most importantly, they are able to complete a wide variety of jobs with little effort required by the handler.

A professional glue gun may be run on butane gas as well as set the glue to a specific temperature. In addition, these specialty applicators may be pneumatic as well as cordless. When it comes to larger jobs, consistent jobs that require a hot glue adhesive, a company is going to benefit greatly from making an appropriate tool purchase.

The Household

Once again, this refers to the craft glue gun. This tool allows the user to apply a steady stream of adhesive or simply apply a single dot. These tools are quite useful for all types of crafting. The adhesive does cool quickly so a crafter has to be quick enough to get the project completed, but also be patient enough to not get burned. These tools are so effective because of their high temperature. In addition, household consumers will find other benefits to owning one of these tools. Not handy with a needle and thread? These applicators and adhesive can provide basic fixes for such needs as hems, buttons, and those pesky badges that children need sewn on to uniforms. While those industrial style tools can perform multiple tasks, so can the very inexpensive and very handy craft version.

Glue Gun Nozzles

The higher end applicators are also going to come with the flexibility of changing the nozzle head. This will allow the company to perform different operations with the same tool without having to purchase a separate one for every need. These different nozzles allow for a slower or faster flow of adhesive which can provide more control for the user. They also have the ability to be more precise in gluing dots and beads. This is especially important when a project requires a very small amount of bonding agent be used. Precision is key. Purchasing these extra nozzles for different jobs will allow the company to perform a variety of jobs with one tool. This is both economical and efficient.

Simple Glue Gun Accessories

It would seem that these are very basic tools that require only glue sticks in order to perform effectively. This may be true in some cases, but there is a definite need for some of the accessories that are available. Some of these tools come already equipped with a stand. This allows the user to set up the stand and do something else without worry that the adhesive will drip or that the heat from the tool will cause damage to the work surface. However, there are separate stands available for those that do not come readily equipped.

When a steady stream of bonding agent is needed for a project, the user may choose to use a foot pedal that will release the agent at a steady pace. This is much easier than having to push it through manually. It is also a very ergonomic choice for someone that is going to handle this tool consistently.

This may seem obvious, but it is a good idea to have a glue pad. This handy accessory allows the user the peace of mind that the work surface underneath the pad will not be damaged in any way. The adhesive is easily peeled from the pad when it is dry, thus providing a clean work area with every use.

It is amazing to learn that there are so many uses for an item that most people consider to be used solely for crafting purposes. Yet, there are limitless uses for each type available, including the one used primarily for crafts. There is definitely a glue gun for every need!
