Due operating the glow gun

  • The normal setting time of the hot glue is 30 seconds. After 30 seconds the glue starts to set. Having applied the glue on the relevant surfaces, wait 15 – 20 seconds before joining them.
  • After about 1 minute the joint has reached 90% of its adhesive strength.
  • The setting time can be extended to 50 to 60 seconds by applying the glue in thick drops or shortened by applying the glue in short, fine lines.
  • Joining large surfaces is difficult, as the glue tends to set before the entire surface has been covered with glue.
  • Preheating the surfaces to be joined guarantees a strong joint. Sun rays have the same impact.
  • The glue melts from a temperature of approx. 140°C and must never be used on material that is sensitive to heat.
  • The glue gun can be used to replace nails, paper tape, liquid glue, but not for heavy-duty jobs.
